Helsinki shoreline in June

After Midsummer celebration part of citizens of Helsinki leave their town for summer holidays. While flocks of tourists form cruise ships are circulating around the center of town, there are plenty of room and peaceful shores to go for a nice, slow stroll. Well, there is plenty of room even when natives are around.

After a nice summer rain the shoreline is beautiful, showing enhanced colors of rocks and greenery. These pictures were taken one day in the morning after light rain shower just a couple of kilometers from the center of Helsinki.
