koitelinkoski part 1.

we spent last weekend at Jacopo's grandparents' place in Oulu: we enjoyed Kyllikki's delicious home made pastries and perunapiirakat while chatting away in finnish - which was good for my practice. one morning we drove to Koitelinkoski: a forestal area with a tumultuous river.
Nikon FM - Fuji Superia 1600:
snow hasn't come to northern Finland either - yet we got to experience a magnificent frosty landscape: I couldn't restrain myself from taking photographs.
P.S. I will soon post more photos of the trip in Koitelinkoski part 2!
