an island of the archipelago

Photo and caption by Dieter Berghmans
I took this photo only a few days ago when visiting some friends in Finland, where you can see the Finnish people enjoy their midsummer days on the beaches and in their summer cottages, before the long winter strikes again. This little sand island I found on the West Coast in Finland, in a place called Kokkola. It was amazing to see the Fins enjoy their summer and all the sun they can get.
Location: Kokkola, Finland
