Rain and Sun

The weather was changeable this evening: rain, downpour, sun, and rainbow…

While I drove home, I saw rainbow. The sun was shining, and it was raining at the same time.

Later the sky cleared, the rain stopped, and road became nearly dry…
The fields and trees were flooded by the bright and warm sunlight. And there were dark clouds above them.

The road turned one more time, and here I was — in downpour again. It rained heavily in Lomonosov.

At the top of the world

На вершине мира // At the top of the world

On May 2, I and my family were in Repovesi national park in Finland, near Kouvola. We walking along the fox path (Ketunlenkki), its length is 5 km.

The path goes to the top of a rock, you are above the nearby trees. So beautiful!

Every muscle in my body hurt when we got back to the hotel. I have to go for a walk more often 🙂
I’d really like to walk along this path once again or along longer paths, preferably in summer when the weather is warmer. 🙂

Sunrise

When the sky is clear, I watch sunrise while I drive to the office. And it happened quite often recent two weeks. Sunrise is different each time, and it’s always beautiful.

This morning the sunrise looked like this:
Рассвет // Sunrise

The higher the sun rose, the more there were clouds in the sky. And the sun joyfully winked out of the clouds.

The smell of spring is in the air…

Frosty morning

Морозное утро // Frosty morning
Winter has finally come: everything is white, earth is covered with soft snow, branches of trees are covered with fluffy snowflakes. It’s −12°C. The sun is shining. It’s dazzlingly bright outside because the sun light reflects from white snow and white trees. Rarely snowflakes fall from above shimmering in the sun, it feels like fairytale.

Actually it was yesterday, I just couldn’t publish the post earlier.
