What a beautiful little village! Your lilac photo was so vivid, I could almost smell them!

Your photos are wonderful, thanks for sharing this beautiful little place with us!

Lilac smells amazing and its everywhere! Porvoo is very nice especially in the summer, whole Porvoo is quite big (for Finland) but the old town is only a small part of it like 15 minutes to see it. We also met some Chinese people from New York who were on a vacation !

Just a fantastic set of shots Geoper2. Color, detail and composition are excellent.
On top of that, what a great looking place.

Really beautiful shots! As a fellow FZ35 user, I'm so proud of you! #2 is an absolutely striking image, also really like 4, 5, and 6. Very nice job.

A gorgeous series Geoper - excellent colour, the clarity is fantastic and No.2 is my fave for these points along with the excellent composition. Looks I should add Finland to my list of places to visit.

Geoper to say 'great series' is an understatement.... #2, 3 and 4 are the outstanding ones for me
