Finland, as one of the world’s northernmost countries, are always related to cold weather and darkness. However, you might not know, Finland has about 168,000 lakes and the landscape is covered mostly by coniferous taiga forests and fens. Be more specific, of the total area 10% is lakes, rivers and ponds, and 78% forest.
With large amount of untouched lands, some people believe Finland is the place that closest to Heaven. Not sure how much you agree with that but from Finnish photographer – Ossi Saarinen‘s photos, I can clearly come to a conclusion that Finland is definitely a heaven for wild animals. Finnish animals appear to be very mysterious, fascinating and charming just like they’ve stepped out from fairy tales. Maybe they won’t have much chance to get in touch with human, so these animals don’t look like scared of human at all. Ossi believes that every encounter between the animals and humans is an unforgettably amazing experience to both.
