Photographer's Note

I had a pleasant walk in one of the last still warm autumn days at the end of September along Espoo seashore, this time not very far from the border of Helsinki. This view is from Karhusaari, which is a cape locating south from the motorway, which is leading from Helsinki to the west and to the border of the Kirkkonummi municipality. One could not guess from this photo that the motorway is just about 100 m behind my back here. Karhusaari has however nice paths for walking and biking and it has one culturally important building, so called Sinebrychoff Villa, which was built 1888-1892 and is now owned by Espoo city and it is used for cultural events, seminars, meetings and celebrations. In Karhusaari there also is a small and cosy swimming sand beach.
After the islands you see on the background there is open sea, the Gulf of Finland.

You can see the motorway passing Karhusaari in this road weather camera.
