Icy Helsinki Cityscapes

Helsinki from Suomenlinna

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.

Amazing sunset today in Helsinki

Sunset from Lauttasaaren silta #1

I just hope that I would have had my DSLR with me and that I would have been in southern tip of Lauttasaari or at the top Hotel Torni… So these photos are taken with compact camera (Panasonic LX3) on my way to home. Two additional photos below.

New gallery: Winter in Helsinki Gallery

Svenska Teatern

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!
