Morning fog in Republic of Karelia


The Republic of Karelia is one of the eleven Federal Subjects which make up Russia's Northwestern District.  Part of a historical region which also includes bits of Finnish territory, it's essentially the area between the White Sea and the Gulf of Finland.  In addition to being home to Europe's two largest lakes (Ladoga and Onega), Russian Karelia features thousands of square miles of pristine forests dotted with small lakes.  See the mist-covered Karelian countryside from above in this excellent piece from chill_side.
