Autumn in Helsinki

The last few weeks in Helsinki has seen the city change, the weather is cooler and the leaves have begun their autumn journey. In Finnish there is even a name for this short period of time during the autumn season, ruska.

Ruska applies to the time when the leaves are at their most colourful and just lasts a few weeks. The following photographs have been taken during this time.

Share your Autumn Colours in the comments and tell me what you think.

Cafes with outside seating where I enjoyed a coffee and a beautiful view over the summer begin to close their doors for the winter and wait out the cold for warmer conditions.

  1. Lovely photos! One of my favorite walks in Helsinki! Love the Blue Villa Cafe! Close to our home-away-from-home in the Linnunlaulu area a few years ago, this was our favorite café for a light supper, or a late evening espresso or tea, and for sitting outside, and watching the Töölönlahti waters shimmer in the lingering sunlight. A delicious treat, this little café is open only during nice weather, there is no inside seating.
