Picture of the Day: The Sun (is finally) Setting Again
Evening at Luovuomajärvi
After the very warm May, snow has rapidly disappeared. Much more, since weeks there has been hardly any precipitation, making the ground very dry. In fact, since days a forest fire warning is in place (for the entire Finland, btw.). Thus, making a camp fire is not possible currently.
