It’s time for another chapter in Ice Swimmer’s series.
Chapter 7 – Ponds on the Rocks on Sunday (1)
There are ponds in the western and southwestern parts of Harakka, on the rocks. Heather, mosses and lichens are typical plants/life on the rocks in Finland. As there are so many birches, there has to be enough water for in normal years. Summer 2018 was exceptionally dry and left many birches on the island without sufficient water, so they had brown leaves in July.
I love reflections.
While the pond is relatively large, it is nothing compared to the sea that connects us all.
They can be on different elevations. If it hadn’t been a very dry year, I wonder if there would have been brooks between the ponds. Some of the water must seep through the cracks in the rocks, though.
It was a warm and sunny day, not very autumnal, but the light isn’t summer light. It’s quite sideways.
Next time is the second part of the ponds on the rocks.
