Photographer's Note

In the middle of May I walked along the seashore in Espoo. This beach is called Suinonsalmi beach according to the narrow strait with the same name. (In Swedish Svinösund). There were no swimmers or bunbathers yet, because it was still windy and only 15 °C, although sunny.
This small beach is one of the 13 public seashore swimming beaches in Espoo city. Close to the beach on the right in the map is the bridge over the Suinonsalmi strait leading to the Suvisaaristo islands ("Summer Islands"), a maritime district of Espoo. You can read more of Suvisaaristo here. From the photo one could believe it shows a lake rather than a seashore, but you see here a relatively shallow sea bay, which you can verify from the map view.

Espoo has 58 kilometres of shoreline and 95 lakes. There are 13 public swimming beaches on the seashore, and ten swimming beaches on lakeshores.
