photographs from oulu IV.

I believe the first photograph of this batch to be my favourite among the ones I took in Koitelinkoski. in the first couple of images you can get a better look at the rapids of Koiteli: the flow of the water is so strong that it is almost scary to get too near to the edge of the river. I could not resist to take a couple of closer shots though: when I take photographs I tend to forget about my fears.

that lovely wooden cottage is a cafe that unfortunately is open only during the summer time - I remember eating an ice-cream there the first time I visited Koitelinkoski two years ago. the place has a totally different atmosphere in winter - in my opinion it is possibly even more fascinating!

  3. The first picture is great, but I think that in the second one the water looks even more beautiful! And the tree in the last picture gives great perspective into that photo!
