Islands in front of Helsinki

In front of Helsinki in the Gulf of Finland there are some beautiful islands. Yesterday I spent some hours in one of those. Here are three different views from that trip.

A thunderstorm is approaching Helsinki. Lauttasaari island seen from the shore of Pihlajasaari island.

The rocky shores of Pihlajasaari are blossoming. This island is the most popular summer island near Helsinki. There is a regular public transport (two way six euros) to the island between May and early September.
