Baltic Sea Islands, part 3

West of Vaasa, in the Gulf of Bothnia, lies Kvarken archipelago which is composed of some 5500 islands and the number keeps rising. The area is continuously rising from the sea. The land, which some ten to twenty thousand years ago weighed down under the weight of a glacier, lifts at rates that are among the highest in the world. As a consequence of the advancing shoreline, islands appear and unite, peninsulas expand, lakes evolve from bays and develop into marshes.

After having filmed and photographed the Kvarken archipelago, I continued North up to the city of Oulu on the shores of Bay of Bothnia, some 100 miles south of the Arctic circle. There I stayed some 2 hours and after refueling departed to the South, heading for Tampere. I maintained only about 1500 feet AGL in order to avoid the large TMA of a military airport. Forests, lakes, a couple of fields, no hills and forests. This is Finland from the air. After about two hours my cameras ran out of power so will be able to see the airport of Tampere in the next part showing the departure from Tampere the following day.
