Helsinki has a lot of open spaces and parks. It seems that a bright, sunny, summer day in Finland can bring out local folks and tourists.in impressive numbers. Here we see visitors to Sibelius Park which is on the outskirts of Helsinki.
This park was a little out of the way, too far to walk with a time crunch. And so I took advantage of one of the tour bus companies. The buses run frequently, the company I used let me get off and on to see what Helsinki has to offer visitors with cameras and stitching programs.
The park itself is green and crisscrossed by walks. A very unusual momunent is at the heart of the park, and it commemorates visually the music of Jean Sibelius, Finland's most revered musical composer.
The monumant is made of hundreds of metal tubes. They are different sizes and have varies surface patterns. You can walk into the monument. Look up the tubes. Whisper or whistle up them. Take photos of them end-on or make a visual study of their rich and varied textures. The pipes are just plain fun.
The 17 frames of this panorama were photographed with a Nokon D80 and stitched with Autopano Pro.
