My nearby environment / Mi entorno vecino / Mon environnement voisin

In English:

Ice age ended here where I live (as also in many other places in our world).

This time I am showing how my neighbouring surroundings are looking like. First nine photos present when we walked in a old huge sandpit. Sand companies took sand from there during decennies. Now it has been overhauled few years and Nature is coming back. Okay, this is natural, but to me there is peculiar bryophyte covering nearly all the area. I have never seen elsewhere anything like that. It was a foggy morning when we walked through the are.

In photos from 13 to 20 You see round stones (barrow consisting of a pile of rocks) which were pushed by the edge ice of Ice Age. Stones became round slowly when ice pushed them before it. These kind of marks are widely seen in my country and thus in the neighborhood where I live. The ice age ended in Finland about 11500 years ago and the ice started to give way about 10500 years ago. I live on an esker where all the sand in my surroundings are pushed by ice.

Other marks after ice age are like sleek rocks, Glacial erratic, etc.

En español:

Edad de Hielo terminó aquí.

Esta vez estoy le mostrando cómo parece mi naturaleza cercana.Las primeras nueve fotos Vos muestran cuando entramos en un gran foso de arena de edad. Empresas de arena tuvo arena de allí durante decennies. Ahora se ha revisado algunos años y la naturaleza se está volviendo. Bueno, esto es natural, pero lo que es para mí peculiar son briofitas que cubren casi todo el área. Nunca he visto en otra parte nada por el estilo. Fue una mañana de niebla, cuando caminábamos allí.

En las fotos 13 a 20 Ves piedras redondas (túmulo que consiste en un montón de piedras), que fueron empujados por el borde del hielo de la Edad de Hielo. Se convirtió poco a poco las piedras redondas cuando el hielo los empujó delante del. Este tipo de marcas son ampliamente vistos en mi país y por tanto, en el barrio donde vivo. La edad de hielo en Finlandia terminó hace aproximadamente 11.500 años y el hielo comenzó a retirarse hace aproximadamente 10.500 años. Vivo en una loma y toda la arena en mi entorno son empujados por el hielo.

Otras marcas después de la edad de hielo son como rocas lisos, bloques erráticos, etc.

En français:

L’âge de glace a pris fin ici.

Cette fois, je Vous montre comment mon entourage voisins sont ressemblant. Les premières neuf photos lasquelles je présente quand nous avons marché dans un fosse à sable vieux et énorme. Les entreprises de sables ont pris du sable pendant decennies. Maintenant, il a été remanié quelques années et de la nature est de retour. Eh bien, ce qui est naturel, mais pour moi, il ya propre bryophytes couvrant presque tous de la région. Je n’ai jamais vu ailleurs quelque chose comme ça. C’était un matin brumeux où nous avons marché à travers le fosse à sable.

En photos 13 à 20 Vous voyez pierres rondes (brouette constituée d’un empilement de roches) qui ont été poussées devant la glace de L’âge de glace. Pierres deviennent rondes lentement lorsque la glace les a poussés devant lui. Ce genre de marques sont largement trouvées dans mon pays, ainsi, dans le région où j’habite. L’âge de glace a pris fin en Finlande, près de 11500 années et quand la glace a commencé à céder la place il ya 10500 années. Je vis sur une crête et tout le sable dans mon entourage sont poussés par les glaces.

Les autres marques après l’âge de glace sont comme des pierres lisses, blocs erratiques, etc.

  1. The bryophyte that covers the ground in the sandpit is fascinating. I have not seen anything like that! The strategies that nature uses to reclaim areas like that are always interesting to study! I’m also fascinated by the round boulders among the trees. That is something I never see in this area. Our geology’s are so different!

    I love your photos of the forest. I would like to spend a lot of time there to study it. It is so much different from what I see here. Photos number 12 and 21 are exceptionally fine! They are gorgeous! You live in a very beautiful place!

    • Hi Montucky.

      Thank You. To pass thru this sandpit is one of our favorite routes. There are three paths on this area, but I like this one most of all, because at final, there is an abrupt slope which I am always running up. The day when I cannot run it up to the top, them I am old. LOL. This can be seen in photo number 9 in which photo my wife is walking with walking sticks. She likes Nordic walking since about ten years.

      My surroundings is “special” with these round stones which are really remains from ice age. In photos it is a little bit difficult to show the “round stone wall”, but in photo number 19, I think tat it is visible quite clearly. Then I was very lucky when I passed in that forest, because sun was shining and at same time the fog was slowly disappearing.

  2. What a lovely wooded area in which to walk and be with nature. I haven’t heard of or seen bryophyte. Interesting! I really like those ancient rocks. We have rocks here in Kansas that was pushed down from the North during the Ice Age. Odd how some of the natural is not native in areas and from a place long ago. Lovely captures in all of your nearby environment. :)

    • Hi Anna.

      Thank You. I think that when seeing Your nice photos, they give me a window to Your world about which I do not know nearly anything, except that what I have read in my Wild Frontier books which I like. But to see photos and to read text they open my mind to explore it virtually and nearly having the feeling to be there.

  3. Des photos de ton environnement tout à fait extraordinaires ! J’aime beaucoup ces rayons de soleil à travers les pins ou sapins. Ces belles pierres arrondies et lissées par les âges. L’histoire et la géographie d’un endroit se modifient lentement, merveilleusement dans ton environnement.

    • Salut Isa.

      Je suis très heureux que tu as une idée de mon environnement à travers mes photos. Je dois avouer que quelques de mes photos qui me plaît aussi, pourquoi pas.

      Merci beaucoup d’avoir faite tes commentaires.

      Bonne journèe.

  4. Sartenada, you are lucky to have a very nice nearby environment, and you show us many fine captures from there. Apart from the rocks, it reminds me a little about the landscape in West Jutland (which I have shown in some of my posts)

    • Hello Truels.

      Thank You so much when leaving Your comment. In my “short” :) life I have been living here and there, but some years ago I started to understand that near to my home, there is something to see also. Maybe it is so that one has to explore other places before one can see the nearby beauty.

  5. Hello Matti,
    “Pierre qui roule n’amasse pas mousse”… ouf, on a la preuve en images que celles-ci ont terminé leur course ! :-)
    Un environnement bien reposant(maintenant) !
    Bon week-end, et peut-être bonnes balades.

    • Bonjour Marion.

      Comme tu l’as vue, mon environnement diffère beaucoup de la de ton. Ton environnement est fantastique et je pense qu’il est unique dans le monde entier. Merci de commentaires et de ta visite.

      Je te souhaite un agréable weekend!

  6. les photos de ton ton pays est tout à fait extraordinaires ! J’aime beaucoup ces rayons de soleil avec les sapins. . le froid est déjà chez toi ?
    nous cette après midi nous étions à la plage et il faisait 14°C pour un mois de novembre c’est super, et vous ?
    je te souhaite une bonne soirée

    • Bonjour Frammy.

      Merci beaucoup de faire ta visite ici et en faisent le comentaire.

      Eh bien, L’hiver c’estenfin est arrivé ici jeudi dernier. Le froide et beaucoup de neige. Les chauffeurs, certains d’entre eux, avaient oublié que l’hiver est arrivé et à cause de cela il y avait de nombreux accidents de voiture. Même chose ça se passe chaque année quand l’hiver arrive le première fois.

      Aujourd’hui le samedi, nous avons de moins cinq degrés ( -5 °C ) et vent fort venant du nord. Le vent se sent plus froid qu’il ne l’est. J’ai juste commencé à se réchauffer notre notre cheminée qui est capacitif après notre balade quotidien.

      Bonne week-end!

    • Hello Tamara.

      Thank You so much. Yes we are living among the nature where we have good possibilities to take daily outdoor exercises. Nearest village is yet at four kilometers from our home.

      Happy weekend to You also.

  8. It is a pleasure to see your photos, all of them, and virtual join you in your walk in the wood. It reminds a lot of what can be seen here in Denmark, except for the electricity/phone lines. I suppose our woods are so small that it is possible to place them elsewhere outside the woods.

    • Hi Giiid.

      Thank You for Your visit and leaving Your nice comment. What comes to this post of mine, I was thinking long time if it will have any interest. After capturing those photos in which sun is coming visible thru fog, then I made my decision.

  9. Bonsoir Sartenada

    j’apprécie de regardé tes photos….

  10. Wow, that’s really fascinating!
    I have never seen so many round big rocks gathered like that in one place.
    I enjoy walking with you in the wood through your photos!
    No lakes in the forest?
    I think Finland is also famous for its many lakes.

    • Hello London Caller.

      Thank You. Well this is my nearest area, but within the radius of five kilometers / 3.1 miles there are two lakes. I have made from one of these two a post:

      http://sartenada.wordpress.com/2010/07/26/pine-beach-playa-de-pino-plage-de-pin/

      Yes, we have many and many lakes in my country. I have already made one post with 59 photos about our lakes, but I’ll publish it next year. So, until then You have to wait. :)

      Happy Sunday.

  11. Good afternoon Matti,
    The landscape looks very interesting. The first images to appear due to the fog and the penetrating sunlight between the trees, very mysterious. The soil is very bare, but it is as you mention that everything gradually returns back to life. I see that Anja exercise their sport. There is more pleasant than here in the city. The close-up picture 17 like it very much. So many stones I never saw in a forest. The round shape of the stones is excellent for expression. Figure 20 I like a close-up, also very good. The lichens are very well expressed. It works like a charm forest and why I like all the pictures in the overall view. In the images of 23/24/25, I like the slight frost on the plants very well. It puts me in the Christmas mood. Unfortunately it has not snowed in Cologne. The images, 26/27, are my favorite pictures. The white clouds over the clear blue sky look like large white crests of the sea. The autumn colors of the trees are excellent for expression. I think the way I see it, you live in a great natural paradise and have many alternatives to enjoy the fresh air. I am grateful for it that I could visit this page again and look forward to the next photo trip to your blog. Thank you for all your nice comments and stars in between. Yesterday I sent an e-mail. I wish you and Anja, good luck and health to your daily common paths.
    Dear greetings Christel

    • Hello Christel.

      Thank You for Your so detailed comment. Yes, we have excellent possibilities to enjoy surrounding nature and fresh air. We just need to go to the other side of our fence then we are in forest full of walking paths. Also within 100 meters from our home house there is nearly 30 kilometers / 18 miles long outdoor trail which is maintained by local communities.
      Those photos 26 and 27 I saw “peculiar” clouds that I had not seen earlier and that is why I wanted show them. All these photos I took with my old pocket camera which is always with me.

      Happy Monday.

  12. I really like the way you’ve captured the light in some of your photos. They have an ethereal quality.

      Thank You. So You noticed it also as I did. Especially in photo 23 the light seems to be coming from Heaven.

      Happy Wednesday.

  13. Wow, that place looks so magical–like something out of a fairy tale. You would almost expect to see elves fading into the mist.
    To answer the question about the willows. I suspect the willows you have are English basket willows, I have not heard of other types of willows used for living fences or screens like the one you have.

  14. Hi Kateri.

    Thank You for Your comment and answering to my question. I think that You are so right when thinking that is not making roots and thus not spreading itself widely.

  17. The word that comes to mind is peaceful. You have captured the essence of tranquility. Your neighborhood reminds me of the rural areas of New York and nearby New England states in the US where I lived before moving to California.

  18. Thank you for pointing out this post. It was really interesting to see how the last ice age shaped your environment. I would love to walk through this area myself. And the photographs were so beautiful.

    It was also interesting to see my “mystery lichen” present in abundance where you live. :-)

      Thank You leaving Your comment. This area is interesting indeed. The forest around us is mainly pines and pines are healthy for breathing.

      Happy Saturday!

  19. I thank you for the link to this post Sartenada. Oh my goodness you live in a beautiful part of the world! I felt so emotional when I saw your pictures of those forests of tall trees and the magnificent round rocks… And nice to see the picture with your wife!

    • Hi Rosanne.

      Thank You for Your kind comment. The region was indeed very pleasant and we enjoyed us to live there nearly 20 years. Last November we moved from our countryside house to a nice small town. Although we had here hard winter and cold we love this place. The best was our daily walking tours on nearby lake’s ice. It was something which I cannot describe or yes I can when I start later to present my small town. BTW, the lake is only at 20 meters / 66 feet from our house.

      Happy Monday!
