Oh only if you could walk in those woods. It's spooky! We have lots of wildlife even in the town! Last time I walked to my dad's apartment I saw a fox running on the street! :D
Looks stunning, would love to visit there
My pics do no justice to the nature of Finland. It's really beautifull out here.. even in my hometown right now :p But it's hot -.-

Thanks Ben :)

Hey Bud, good to see you've been taking pictures :tmb:

Finland is a really beautiful place. I'll have to visit there one day - that is one helluva place for taking pictures. It must be even better actually being there.

It's beautifull I guess.. when you travel with train you can see how the height of the trees change in your eyes. From just 5- 10 m to double or triple! The nature changes alot here even though the climate is almost the same. A bit hotter in the south though we do get over 30c temps here up north aswell. Just today for an example.. And yeah.. being here is better than just watching pictures. They show nothing of the atmosphere you get when you walk alone in the woods or at the streets.

I might go back to Tampere this weekend and from there to Turku to our summer cottage on the islands :D So be prepared for more pictures.. if the weather is nice, that is..

Ooh.. that's no good. Wasn't it pretty hot there last year? I remember being there and sweating like hell! The weather just keeps changing alot here (in my hometown). Rainy one day, hot and sunny the other.

You sound like a tourist brochure for Finland...in other words you've persuaded me that I've got to go there sometime. :D

I've been following this guy's work (http://alekstalve.deviantart.com/) for sometime and I think he captures what you've described there really well. If you're into photography or generally appreciate the scenes Finaland has to offer, its definitely worth checking. Scratch that - just check it out :p

I find this picture in particular, fascinating:

Maan.. you should see Lapland during mid summer or fall. It's so beautifull with all the rivers and hills and leaves falling of during fall... That picture sums up the colours of Lapland during fall :tmb: Perfect.

Yer. well there is a small obstacle between Finland and Norway. Sweden.. Unless you live straight above me.. Or if you're rich you could've come with out a doubt. Snob friends are always a welcome addition :ton:
