For the soul is a wanderer with many hands and feet

Today I walked with my daughter around lake Vääräjärvi in Nuuksio, starting from the parking place at Velskola. We walked for 2 1/2 hours, which was longer than I thought it would be, but I was to blame, as I read the map wrong in one place, and we made a detour instead of a shortcut.

The photograph was taken a week ago at Kattilajärvi, near Vääräjärvi.

Art, thanks! Just the right amount of clouded sky and evening sunshine.

Fine - the leaves almost golden! Really soothing (at least for me, after a bad day)

Markus, after a busy week, I think I was looking for a photograph with some calmness in it.

That's a gorgeous shot.

Thanks, David! Sometimes one gets the feeling that this one will be a "keeper", and here the result turned out quite well.
