 The Forest of Sleeping Giants



I took these photographs a month ago from a nearby forest. These kind of boulders were formed by the last ice age, and they can be found all over Finland. I find them especially picturesque when covered by thick snow.









I find this group of boulders resembling a group of sleeping trolls or perhaps Grokes of the Tove Jansson's Moomin-series from some reason.
