Nuuksio National Park during week 47, between 19.-25.11.2018.
Looks like the weather gets sunnier and colder, with days around 0°C and nights around -4°C. There’s also very little wind, so this means that the smaller ponds and lake shores start to freeze!
I really like to be outside at this time of year, especially when the sun shines, because it stays so low for the whole day, meaning there’s magical light all the time. And the national park is very peaceful and quiet now.
