This series of photos are from the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress in Finland. It was a very cold and breezy day, so there were not a lot of people visiting the fortress. We decided to go down this empty street where we stumbled upon a big friendly kitty and around another corner I spotted a guy standing on a boat coming out of one of the buildings. It matched with the building nicely, so at first I thought it was a part of the building. I believe it is a boat that was just finished being built and was making its ceremonial descent down the little ramp and into the sea! There was a Finland flag flying and as you can see from the last photo, they lowered the flag right after the boat had successfully made it!
This is when I came around the corner and spotted the beautiful boat sticking out of the building.
The boat making its descent down the ramp.
This image shows the Finland flag being lowered after the boat was successfully launched into the sea!

For this week’s challenge, I have chosen another photo from our day trip earlier this year to the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress. I will add a post with more photos from this trip soon. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, located on a group of islands off of Helsinki, Finland.
There is something very relaxing about this shot with many textures: Soft flowing sheets blowing in the wind against an impressive building made of colorful rough stones and hard metal poles in the foreground. ~Suomenlinna Sea Fortress
This photo was taken earlier this year on a very breezy and chilly day at the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, located on a group of islands off of Helsinki, Finland.
