After taking many photos throughout the winter here in Finland, it’s nice to finally see some liquid water again. It’s quite amazing to see the transitions in nature as the seasons change, and I really recommend visiting Finland within the next few months as the weather warms up. The spring/summer season is really nice here, as it’s often warm and the forests become amazingly green and lush.
Below are some photos that I’ve taken recently, right after the lakes have thawed or are busy thawing.
The water slowly starts to show as the weather warms up.
The remains of some ice float on a lake as the weather continues to rise.
Only a bit of snow remains along the shore.
The last lonely piece of ice sits on a lake at sunset.
The sun sets over a recently thawed lake in Joensuu. No more ice or snow!
Have a great summer everyone!
