HDR In Helsinki: Mätäjoki


Can you believe the name of this little stream is Mätäjoki? It means Rotten River in English. Quite disgusting, isn’t it? The river itself isn’t so disgusting. It flows through beautiful parks and green areas, especially here in Pitäjänmäki district. I used to think it was quite a boring place. Until I saw a photo of waterfall in Pitäjänmäki. It looked superb with bridge and everything. I decided to go there to check it out. Not only was there the waterfall but much more. For example I found this scene of Mätäjoki river flowing from a tunnel and forming the waterfall. Mosquitos were flying around. The air was humid. Like in nature. But the street and cars go on top of the tunnel. And there are apartment blocks on the left hand side. Like a jungle in a concrete jungle.
