Nice shot. Finland is a place I would like to visit, but probably off the plans now.

Beautiful shot, Finland is certainly somewhere I'd like to visit as well... there's a song about that somewhere...

Don't mind the Monty Python reference. Some of us (me included) are big fans. But seriously, Finland is far enough off the beaten track to appeal to me. Your other shots from the same place only add to the appeal of the land.

Very nice shot. I like the dark foreground balanced with the light.

Thanks for all

But I think grass is greener behind the fence. I envy many landscapes that are not here in Finland.
Monty says "Your mountains so lofty", but we don't have any mountains, highest peak just above 1km from sea level and prominence only shy over 500m. We call them as tunturi, fell in english (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fell). Our fells are "round" not any sharp and pointy. And those fells are on Lapland, norther part of Finland, here in south it is very flat.
Sure we have lots of forest and lakes and rivers but those are so common to me that it is hard to see beauty of them.

Thanks for sharing. Very challenging lighting, and the details in the foreground do show up nicely. I like the way the leaves of the tree on the left show up dark green. Well done.

It is pine, on mire they wont get much bigger, so it has needles . But it is easy to mistake, because You cant see needles in my pic due not so great sharpnes.

Perhaps there are cloudberries or cranberries growing there?
