She spreads the blessing wide as human kin

The photographs were taken on October 15th.

This morning I walked for 2 1/2 hours at Timmermalmi nature protection area, exploring the swamps, which were flooding due to melting snow. I thought about stereotypes, for example the feeling that many people from the USA are not really grown up even though they may look like adults. And when you meet US people the stereotype usually doesn't hold, but still it persists. And then Donald Trump is elected president, and that fits completely the stereotype. Who except people who are not adults would elect Trump?
