HDR in Helsinki: Goose Wall
Suomenlinna island among many things has plenty of walls. They were originally built to keep the Russians away – Finland was part of Sweden then and Russia was Sweden’s enemy. Nowadays the walls are just a memory of what the sea fortress used to be and birds for example search food on them. Here are two barnacle geese on a wall: one pecking the ground and one looking to the sea. On the background a glimpse of mainland (Katajanokka district) can be seen. The photo is taken from a bridge leading from Iso-Mustasaari to Pikku-Musta island. Zoom lens used.
