Great picture of the most beautiful and exciting island of Finland (if not the whole world...).

Good composition. The lines and the canoes are used very well, I think!

Thank you for your interest, both Janne and Sneemann :) This island really is a kind of miracle, having 10 km long beaches with the high dunes like shown here. The island Ärjä propably used to be a delta area of an ancient river, which was carrying the melting water from the glaciers of the previous Ice-Age.

näyttää vähän sotkamon hiukalta! muutenkin tosi hyvä kuva!

Timo Rossi on October 11, 2007

Moi ja kiitos m_kissa! Ei ihme, jos paikka muistuttaa Sotkamon Hiukkaa; se ja Ärjän saari kuuluvat samaan hiekkavyöhykkeeseen, joka alkaa idässä jossain Vienan Karjalassa ja jatkuu Sotkamon ja Oulujärven kautta Rokualle Vaalassa. Kyseessä kait jokin jääkauden loppupuolen vanha jäänreuna, joka sitten kasannut hiekkaa ihan kunolla pitkin tätä vyöhykettä..
