So we blink our eyes, as if a tiger had sprung out

The photographs were taken on December 19th in Nuuksio, at lake Sammalkuoho and lake Suolikas.

This week I have walked for 16 hours across forests and swamps, exploring Nuuksio, Oittaa etc., discovering corners I hadn't yet visited. I have been eating quite a lot so the weight hasn't gone down despite the exercise.

Today I walked in Petikko, and it was snowing. We have got some 5 cm of snow, so it looks like winter now.

In addition to walking, I have been doing quite a lot of reading, finishing two books each day. Mostly light reading, but there are also some heavier volumes in the pile of books.
