Helsinki: Merihaka Skyline

Helsinki: Merihaka Skyline

One of my favourite Helsinki skyline views – to the skyline of Merihaka. The photo was basically shot in the middle of the night – a quarter to midnight to be exact.

The Svartholma Sea Fortress as seen from the sea – from a Distance. And if you look closely you can see there is also the moon hanging above the fortress island.

A view to the ‘backside’ of the Svartholma Sea Fortress. In this photo you can see the fortress walls – and two boats parked near the main harbor of the island.

Finland: View to a Lake near Äänekoski

Finland: View to a Lake near Äänekoski

posted in: Finland, Summer in Finland | 0

This is what summer in Finland feels like: a relaxing afternoon by the lake. Just some fish in the water, birds in the sky – and a couple of clouds passing by. Later the sauna will be on and we’ll have some food and some drinks – by the lake.

Forest floor in the Sun

Forest floor in the Sun

I just liked a lot how the sunlight looks so nice. Trees casting shadows on the blueberries on the forest floor – everything is just so green. So I took this walk-by shot – some motion captioned in this picture. An action shot – without much action.

You can also find this image from the stock photo section.

In the Woods: forest floor covered with blueberries

In the Woods: forest floor covered with blueberries

The woods in Finland are well known for their blueberries – the forest floor is basically literally covered with blueberries. I took this photo a bit too early for the blueberry high season, so you can’t see any actual berries. But in late summer you should probably take at least a bucket or some big bag with you when you are planning to take a walk in the woods.

Mirrored Sunset by the Lake

Mirrored Sunset by the Lake

No wind – the lake lies quiet, surronded by woods. The sun sets – and the sunset is mirrored in the lake. And when the sun sets in Finland, it often sets for quite a long time. In the north sunsets can go on for hours and hours – especially around midsummer you can basically enjoy a colorful sunset almost for half the night.

Äänekoski: Small Island in the middle of the Lake

On a day without almost any wind the lake is mirroring the passing clouds nearly perfectly. In the center of the photo you can see the small island a bunch of seagulls fights for every other day. The island seems to be quite a popular spot for the night – a safe place where basically no enemy can come close without prior notice.

Hanko Beach Panorama

Hanko is one of the few places in Finland where you can actually hang on a proper beach. In the center of this Panorama picture you can see parts of the Port of Hanko where rather large ships load and unload goods basically all day and all of the night.

So while people are working nearby basically 24/7 you can enjoy a relaxing afternoon starring at the open sea, watching ships come and go every now and then, maneuvering between the small islands you see near the Port of Hanko.
