Helsinki, Finland 🧊 Walking Along the Frozen Coast
Welcome to another scene, dear viewer.
We start the walk at 12 o’clock on a Sunday, which means there is a lot of sun. ^^
The temperatures keep getting colder by the day, today it will be a sunny -18°c.
It’s not only a real challenge to hold the camera in this cold, the camera itself is struggling as well.
The turning movement (panning) seems to be struggling and some kind of lens blur once in a while, I hope it won’t bother too much.
Even with technical difficulties, i’m really happy i managed to record on this icy cold day.
We are walking in Toukola Beach Park, a district of Helsinki, around 4 km north of the city centre.
Next to us is the Gulf of Finland, in a frozen state though. It seems to be possible to enter the ice, as demonstrated by a few daredevils.
Toukola residential area has been the most important new construction project in Helsinki in the 21st century.
Divided into 2 districts: Toukola and Arabianranta, a total population of about 8.750.
The name Toukola originates from the student spring festival celebrated first in 1833.
The Arabia factory (Finnish design company) is located in Toukola. Many street names are derived from countries and cities in Asia and Africa.
For instance: Syyriankatu, Kongontie, Siamintie, Sumatrantie, Damaskuksentie and Indiankatu.
In the distance we can spot 3 new skyscrapers: “Majakka”, “Loisto” and “Lumo One”, construction is still ongoing.
These are located in the disctrict of Kalasatama, helsinki. Perhaps for another time!
Thank you for walking along with me on this icy cold but sunny day.
