photoblog image Helsinki

Helsinki

Another shot from the island fortress of Suomenlinna (see yesterday's for some background). The fortress actually consists of several islands. Once you get there you can wonder around through paths and bridges and along the coastline and through some of the old parts of the fortress. This is one of the bridges connecting to a smaller island.

You can see all my Helsinki pictures here.

Crikey, Charles...don't get yourself run over in your fearless pursuit of the perfect image.
Great perspective Charles, like the curving rails leading into the edge of the frame and the patterns created by the wood. Fabulous image to guide the eye into this island fortress.

I like the different tones in the bridge, it almost looks like two different photos merged together, so it really draws the attention in. Like the nice low angle as well.

Il ne ressemble pas du tout au pont Saint Bénézet en Avignon.

On y danse... On n'y danse... On y danse tous en rond.

Splendid perspective, this great shot. Good day.
The way the boards are arranged, Charles, it gives the illusion of a dip in the middle of the bridge. Love the perspective of this shot with the colourful house at the foot.
The wooden chevron pattern almost gives the impression of it rolling forward. Did you ever reach the other side?
excellent
all the elements of a great shot
perfect and wonderful
