Sharply etched in the crystalline air

The photographs were taken at lake Myllyjärvi south of Luukki on September 2nd.

Autumn colors are starting to appear, little by little. This morning the temperature was 6 °C, and there was some fog. Perfect for a walk with a camera.

And I am the one who brought it to an end

The photographs were taken at lake Hepolampi south of Luukki on September 2nd.

This morning I walked for two hours in Luukki, west of Ketunkorpi, exploring the swamps. I got one deer fly.

And feel and its clean smell have satisfied

The photographs were taken while walking around lake Suolikas in Nuuksio on August 28th.

I commuted by bicycle today. Since the beginning of May I have got 3,000 km riding the bicycle, and 4,871 km since the beginning of this year. I think 6,000 km may be possible by the end of the year, depending on road conditions (i.e. whether snow comes early).
