It is minus 25 in Helsinki this morning…a bit cold, but I headed off to the harbour to catch the sunrise.
It was worth getting frozen fingers and toes for this.

It really was worth standing in the cold to see the sunrise.
Helsinki harbour is very beautiful.
Wow! Amazing shots.. amazing place.. Thank you for sharing 🙂
The temperature climbed all the way to minus 9degrees a bit later, much warmer.
It’s pure poetry! Really beautiful!
I think Helsinki is stunning…even at minus 25.
Too cold! Sydney +45C…
Minus 25 is too cold, plus 45 is too hot…somewhere in between is good.
But pictures are excellent!
Wow that a cold. Like Mn! But what a spectacular sunrise you e captured! Are you en route to Italy?
I will be in Italy tomorrow where I’m sure it will be much warmer.
It is record setting cold here today. Five below zero F as a high with 36 below zero F as a low!!! Insane!!!
Wonderful! Fine set of photos Debra.
Thank you. I was delighted to be there for the magnificent sunrise.
So beautiful, Deb!! x
The sunrise was magical…it was worth standing there freezing to bits.
At minus 25 those beautiful photos must literally be moments frozen in time. As for temperatures – I am a bit over it all. if anyone is listening I should like to live in that place where “is good” is the order of the day, thanks.
Only a couple of months to go and Brisbane will be perfect…time for me to return.
Absolutely beautiful series of photographs! Very painterly and very “Turner-esque” – gorgeous 🙂
It was a stunning sunrise, I am very glad I was there.
[…] a look at my Beautiful Helsinki blog to see more of the sunrise over the harbour. There is a link on the right side of the page. There […]
– 25???? Get inside, Debra, that’s just stupid!
I know this sounds crazy, but it wasn’t that bad…now if there had been a howling wind, I couldn’t have been outside for more than a few minutes.
These are so beautiful! They make me want to hop on a train and go to Helsinki today!
It was a gorgeous sunrise, I’m so glad I braved the cold.
Hi Debra! I just arrived a month ago in Helsinki and when the temperature makes another fall down, I love to go see the sunrise in the harbour as well! What time did you get there? BR, Sigrid
I was there at about 8.30am. It was cold, but worth it.
So beautiful!!! I never saw Helsinki like that before! :))
