I love the contrast of the white church against that blue, blue Helsinki sky. I've honestly asked myself many times if it is possible for the sky to be bluer here than it is at home. It sure does seem like it is.
This time, we peeked inside the church.
For a Catholic gal who's quite used to churches that are filled with religious art, the plain Protestant churches that I have visited here in Helsinki are quite stark. For example, this is my church at home:

Here is another view of the inside of the Helsinki Cathedral. Quite a difference!
But it's the outside of the church we were interested in anyway on this beautiful spring day.
This time, instead of sledders, the steps were filled with people eating ice cream (it was only 50 degrees Fahrenheit but hey, this is Helsinki, not Barcelona!)
By the way, for a photo hobbyist, taking photos in Finland is quite a challenge. I can never seem to escape the shadows...
