All images of this gallery were photographed during the second week of January 2010. The weather was foggy, and all trees were covered with frost, lots of frost. I do not remember ever seeing Helsinki so beautiful in winter time 🙂
Almost all photos taken in Vanha Kirkkopuisto and Esplanadin puisto have been taken with Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 L II Tilt-Shift lens. That lens is very good for architectural photography. It is very easy to avoid converging verticals with the perspective control of that lens.
While I was photographing scenery in Töölönlahti, I also ended up doing some bird photography. Quite rare sight in the city center of Helsinki!
