Travel photography: Suomenlinna

Steamy sea by the coast of Suomenlinna

Suomenlinna, Helsinki, Finland. January 2011.

In Suomenlinna, one is always surprised by the freezing cold winter days. When the well-below-zero air meets the warmer sea water it creates a beautiful illusion, like the sea is boiling. Taking photos in this haze is an experience unlike any other – the freezing air pinches your fingers and makes your face numb.
