Finland - a little about the land and music of Sibelius

Dear friends,


"Finland capital Helsinki" - I memorized it far back in the 50's and still in there came the concepts of vikings and Scandinavia. Just concepts... But I haven't forgot: "Finland capital Helsinki".

Many years later I was able to make an association: - ah, so the composer of this wonder is from that far away - in time and in space - "Finland capital Helsinki".

Until the arrival of Internet gave me the opportunity to know and admire the work of Finnish photographers, what sparked a faint curiosity to search something more about that country...

The decision for a notoriously laborious PPS - slideshow - was slowly becoming a reality and now I experimented one of the most rewarding emotions of my virtual travels, thanks to the natural and also architectural beauty of the land of Sibelius.
Necessarily, it should be at  the sound of his music!

Hopefully, the result will please you ...

Delza
