Better late than never, I finally had some free time for working on some pictures left behind and I’m ready to share the last batch from last december in Helsinki. It’s been a long time since I took these pictures but I still keep precious memories of time spent in Seurasaari island enjoying the amazing winter light. One thing that I love most of northern countries like Finland is that people can enjoy the beauty of pure nature everywhere. When I went visiting our friends in Tampere some years ago, Erica and I almost got lost in a forest located very close from her house. That wood was so real, with mushrooms and wildberries, not a urban garden or a city park. In a similar way, with a 15 minutes bus ride from the centre of Helsinki, we had the chance to visit the amazing archipelago around the capital that is full of pretty wooden villas, ancient houses, stunning views of the sea and almost nobody around. I really loved Seurasaari island – which is also a open-air museum of historical finnish houses – despite the low temperatures. My hands were actually freezing while I was taking pictures with my camera even if they were covered by gloves , but the sunlight was so breathtaking that I couldn’t help but take a lot of pictures of the landscape and some portraits of our friends. I don’t want to bother you with more words, I’ll let the images speak for me.
