Wrong Way

Who said Finland is cold and dark? This photo introduces some strong colors and a hidden message: the area back there is the most expensive in Finland, and I know there is no way I could ever afford a house from there. So the sign which forbids to travel that way can't be more true. The broken lamp of one car there fits the picture by saying that they are mortal too, :) The colors were a result of A Circular Polarizer and high saturation export, among other things (it really was a colorful spot!).
