Jyväskylä: Monochrome morning
In this monochrome dawn the only colours can be spotted on the shore where the yellowed blades of grass lean towards the lake.
Then the mist begins to clear, and the scenery changes. I cross the wooden bridge to Haukanniemi, and already more colours are beginning to appear.
A dog-walker passes by, wearing sensible rubber boots. The muddy path makes me wish I was wearing mine instead of the hiking boots which will be a mess when I get back.
I step off the main path and head for a smaller one. The ground is covered with brown, dead leaves, but in places there are lighter colors.
Mushrooms! I am in luck and spot some that are of the edible variety - and thanks to having a little plastic bag in my pocket, this evening's dinner is soon in the bag.
