Hi Mick, the guys are walking in a harbour area by the Baltic Sea. The ice was very strong at their location, so they were very safe. Actually the other part had been kept 'open' for this ship by small harbour ice-breakers.

Hallo Timo, the harbours name is Sompasaari.

Best regards Peter Claus

Timo Rossi on June 21, 2007

Hi Peter and many thanks for your interest. I finally checked the precise name of this location: The name of the harbour is "Helsinki - North Harbour" or in Finnish "Sörnäisten Satama". The quay location is "Hanasaari Quay B (SHB)". The Sompasaari quays of the Helsinki North Harbour are located just 100m east of this location (the other picture above this one).

Great image!

It's a pitty we don't have "cold" winters any more. The last time the central lake here (Alster) was frozen enough to allow people walk on it was like 15 years ago...

Greetings from (not so cold) Hamburg, :)
