Bagni di Lucca and Beyond

It was minus 25 when I arrived in Helsinki.I set off immediately to the harbour to watch the sunrise.

The cracking ice made some interesting patterns.

Walking back through the city, briskly, to warm up, I found the city looking beautiful with its covering of snow.

The temperature scooted all the way up to minus 9, the sky was blue and there was now wind…a great day really.

I went back towards the harbour for sunset…not as spectacular as sunrise, but pretty just the same.

Take a look at my Beautiful Helsinki blog to see more of the sunrise over the harbour. There is a link on the right side of the page. There will be lots more on Helsinki at beautifulhelsinki.wordpress.com over the coming weeks.
