Good morning from a cloudy Helsinki....thank you for all your wonderful votes and comments yesterday. Also a huge thank you to Irish Kate an to Jukka (Kuvailija) for their UA's. Jukka lives in Helsinki so I was so happy that he thinks I captured the essence of his city.
These images above ere taken on our boat cruise around hat they call Historical Helsinki. I was amazed that the waterways are a maze of tiny islands dotted around. Our boat zigzagged through them. I have included a few of the more interesting buildings on them as well as a few of the mainland from the water. There were also at least 4 cruise ships docked in Helsinki. Midday is never the greatest time to capture images but I have done my best.
Have a nice day... it is our last full day here, before flying to Manchester for the 3rd Ashes cricket test. I am meeting Angela Seager (epz member) there if anyone wants to join us for a day out with our camera's....just send me or her a pm GrinGrin

Great images again , Colleen ! I have seen during some 45 years certainly thousands of images of the Helsinki cathedral and the harbour, but never seen this good about them, A genious combination ! All the other images give me a very good feeling too, like there was nothing ugly in Helsinki (if only). Thanks Colleen!!!GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin ---- Jukka.

Crickey Colleen the ferry is bigger than the town; another set of wonderful memories of our holiday Grin

Make sure you are wearing flat comfortable shoes when you land in Manchester, believe me you will have a very long walk to collect your luggage; so long, you'll think you've walked all the way from Helsinki.

A wonderful journey with you seeing the very well designed houses,sculptures and I especially
like V12 today with that one yacht in f/g backed by all the others.
Some lovely photography, perfect skies and enough to make one consider a holiday to Helsinki.
