Summer is over, so it is time to post a new gallery of photos that I have photographed in Helsinki during summer 2013. During earlier summers I have been little bit lazy to photograph urban sunsets in Helsinki, so this year I decided to take my camera and tripod more often with me to Helsinki nights. I managed to photograph the sun setting exactly behind the Helsinki Cathedral, and the moon exactly behind the Suomenlinna Church 🙂 Unfortunately the moon was not full, but it is good to have some challenge also next summer… You can see some of these photos in my exhibitions during next months: in Art Forum Helsinki in October and in Kaken Kehys in November.

In August 2011 I visited Koli. I stayed in Koli and surrounding area about one week. During three mornings I went to photograph sunrise at the top of Koli. That meant that wake up was before 4 am….

I visited also Pisa nature protection area (Juankoski), Palvinsuo National Park (Lieksa / Ilomantsi) and Kolvananuuro Nature Reserve (Joensuu). On my way back I stopped in Punkaharju.

Landscape photography locations in Kuusamo

I have made four photography trips to Kuusamo since 2003. Based on the experiences in these trips, I decided to collect here some info about my favourite photography locations in Kuusamo.


Iivaara sunset

View from Iivaara in summer

  • About 1.5 km walk from the parking lot (Google map link) is required to reach the top of Iivaara.
  • Iivaara (info in Finnish) is very good location for sunset photography during summer and autumn, as you can see sun setting over several small lakes.
  • I have not visited Iivaara during winter, and I assume that the road to the parking lot is not maintained during winter time.
