The photographs were taken at Vaakkoi on October 19th.
The weather is warming up. In the morning we had -8 °C, for the afternoon the forecast promises -2 °C. I went for a walk and took photographs of the snowy landscape.
For the next week the forecast promises even warmer weather, up to +5 °C, and some rain. It won't be especially pleasant for commuting by bicycle, but I'll try anyway. So far this year I have got 5793 km riding the bicycle.
