Or even in the illusion

The photographs were taken on October 29th at Pirttimäki.

Today wasn't a great day for commuting by bicycle. In the morning it rained. Even though I was wearing a waterproof jacket, I got soaking wet due relative humidity of 100 percent. In the morning the temperature was +6 °C, and in the afternoon +2 °C. I had headwind both ways. My hands got cold, in the morning because of the rain, and in the afternoon because of the strong and cold wind.

Today's #2 is for me, Juha - I love those muted colors, the soft background and the combination of those round shapes of the leaf and the berries. Fine!

Your biking stories remind me of those years when I did similar things commuting by bike in summer and winter. Rain and cold headwind were never my friends!

The right clothing helps when riding the bicycle. I usually get it right, but sometimes I still make mistakes. This time I took the wrong gloves which were all too thin for the weather.
