I have added a new gallery from the New Year 2013 celebrations at Helsinki City Senate Square. The event was hosted by Sanna Stellan ja Sami Hedberg. Bolly Beat Dancers, Danny’s Bollywood Dance Crew (DBDC), Johanna Försti, Osmo Ikonen and Michael Monroe performed at New Year’s party. After the midnight there was also fireworks.
I visited first time the New Year celebrations at Helsinki City Senate Square with camera and tripod. The Senate Square was lit up by the light and video show jointly produced by Mural Media and Agent Pekka. There was also a video presentation called Ylistys Helsingille (Praise to Helsinki), which used a 3D architectural mapping technique, emblazoning Helsinki Cathedral with light.
Linnanmäki arranged annual Carnival of Light event in last October. I visited it twice, and took photos of the fire art performances and amusement park lights.
I have launched a new website for my landscape photos: Maiseman Lumo (this new site is in Finnish). I will post only landscape photos and landscape photography related articles to Maiseman Lumo. I have there also information about my exhibitions and landscape photography courses.

Kameraseura is arranging photography exhibition about Helsinki called Kamera Stadissa. I got one landscape photo, the above cityscape, accepted to this exhibition.
Visiting this exhibition is highly recommended! You can see quite diverse photos of Helsinki and urban life. Exhibition is open Tuesday – Friday at 12–16 in Kamera gallery (Lastenkodinkuja 1) until 27.5. Exhibition has also Facebook page.
Today was maybe the last day to photograph sunny and icy seascapes in Helsinki this spring. So I did spend several hours today in Suomenlinna photographing the floating sea ice and icicles You will see those photos later, but here are four cityscapes that I captured on my way back to Helsinki from Suomenlinna.
I photographed this panorama last tuesday (22.3.) after sunset from Sisä-Hattu (small island at the southern tip of Lauttasaari). The full size of panorama is 42000 x 3400 pixels, here you can see 8000 pixels wide version.
These two galleries contain varied photos from the summer Helsinki. The first photos are from the May Day celebrations, and the last photos are from Herring Market (Silakkamarkkinat) in October. There are also photos from historical parade, Suomenlinna, Esplanadi park, Seurasaari Midsummer party, and The Night of the Arts event.
This Life in Helsinki – Winter Gallery has 48 varied photos from the wintry Helsinki. The majority of photos include people (unlike my landscape photos…), it is snowing heavily, or couple of traditional landscapes have been taken from Suomenlinna ferry.
