Birch foliage with the summer sun shining through the leaves making them almost transparent. The veins of the leaves can be clearly seen. In Finland the birch tree is a common sight. Because of the clean air the barks of the trees are often bright white which contrasts beautiful against a blue summer sky. It is a populair tree as the branches are also used in the sauna to hit oneself with to promote circulation and relaxation.
