Bird photography in Seurasaari island, Helsinki, Finland

Helsinki is well-known as a clean and uncrowded city with a close distance to the sea and nature.

Seurasaari is one of Helsinki’s islands offering lots of natural beauty especially during summertime. For a birdwatcher and a naturelover it is a pearl, within a short bus trip from the center of Helsinki. Seurasaari is a free experience except during Midsummer festivals in June.

Kuusamo hills and ruska in North of Finland (video preview)

This video is from the landscapes of Kuusamo in North of Finland. Some say Kuusamo is not yet Lapland, but to me it looked very much like it. This video was shot on top of Ruka during the ruska time in September, when the weather is cool and the trees are colourful.

Helsinki metrostations from Ruoholahti to Vuosaari

Last spring 2017 I did photography on all the Helsinki metrostations, from one end to the other, from Ruoholahti to Vuosaari, and made them into collages.

It was not an easy job, since most of the people passing by looked at me as if I was taking selfies only.

You know, Helsinki has alltogether 17 metrostations by the end of summer 2017, but here covered are all the 14 stations from Ruoholahti to Vuosaari only, because for a tourist those missing 3 metrostations, Myllypuro, Kontula and Mellunmäki, don’t have much relevance.  But in case you wish to visit those places, you can change the metro in Itäkeskus and it will take you there.

Another reason is, that sooner or later, this same metroline I’m talking about, metro from Vuosaari to Ruoholahti, will take you all the way from Vuosaari to neighbouring Espoo city as well. So this article is also a salute to all the people in Espoo getting to know Helsinki, in addition to all the other tourists coming to Helsinki, Finland from all over the world. So here they are, with the photocollages and relevant links to Finnish introductions, to traveltips in English and to Insta images –
