all around kaitalampi IV.

when along our trail we spotted a wooden sign promising a wonderful view - Jacopo and I decided to continue hiking in that direction: we were eager to find out what the sign meant. to do that we had to leave the side of Kaitalampi lake behind us for a while and enter deeper in the forest: the path became narrower and steeper until we reached the top of a hill.
all around Kaitalampi - part IV:
Nikon FM - Fuji Pro 400H
after climbing on top of a huge rock - covered in soft green moss and virtually free of trees - we were finally able to look down onto a large forest endlessly streching in front of us. that wooden sign was right: it was indeed a wonderful view - even more glorious in the light of the setting sun! I could have stayed there contemplating that spectacular vista for hours but we had to keep on moving: it was going to be dark soon and we still had to hike a considerable length of the trail around the lake.
more about Kaitalampi next week! have a lovely weekend! ♥

    1. It was! Thank you, Awono! I really like it when there are those kind of signboards indicating a natural sight - in Iceland there were plenty of them.

    1. You most definitely should give it a go, Sara! If I'd live in Portugal though, I think I would use 100 iso films all the time - it must be always so beautifully bright there!
