    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently in Helsinki, Finland for a couple of days.
    It's a very nice country and we're lucky to have a wonderful sunshine!
    I don't have my computer with me so the pictures are fresh out of the camera (5T) without any post-processing.
    The two last ones are long exposures, 13 and 30 seconds taken with ND400 filter.
    Here some pictures for you see:

    Finland is hellishly expensive place to visit but there are some nice places to visit. Especially Suomenlinna is worth visiting if you have some extra time in Helsinki and weather is fine, it is popular for picnics . For beer&whiskey people I can recommend restaurant Little Bird (Pikkulintu) in Puotila:

    Other nice places to visit in Helsinki are the botanic garden, some old mansions, zoo. There are lots of museums too.
