Photographer's Note

Famous nature place in Finland.Eastern Finland.By the Pielinen lake. 295m high from lake level and 437 meters from sealevel.On the top area is a hotel and a nature center "Lusto", where You can examine the history of the local nature and get to know, that in this same place have raised big mountains million years ago.Many ice-ages have crushed the stone and only the hardest stone is still in his place. Koli is a center of Carelianist painters (Gallen-Kallela) and writers (Juhani Aho).
Old sagas have got inspiration also to componist Sibelius works.
But Koli is also a sporting center:slalom and ski, fishing(also in winter) and rambling in summer.In winter You can drive by the iceroad over the lake and see a colourful sunsetting.
Last night was a thunderstorm and therefore the scenery is "after rainy weather"
