Kvarken Archipelago

Kvarken Archipelago

Kvarken Archipelago, Finland

The reason to visit Vaasa was to take in the nearby Kvarken National park, an area where the landscape shows  signs of post glacial rebound. Since the compression of the last ice age the ground is now returning to its original position and that is happening here along the Finnish coast. In 2006 Kvarken National park became Finland’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The View of Tromsø

The view of Tromsø

Panorama using mobile app

Looking over Tromsø there is a view point where you can see the city and the surrounding landscape. The top of the mountain is easily accessible by way of a Norwegian priced cable car that runs every half an hour. Even though it is slightly expensive the view is well worth it.

Above is a panorama I took using my phone, perfectly connected. I am not even sure how it works but some how it does. Below is a panorama I made by printing the photographs and connecting them myself. Even though it is flawed I enjoy the process and the final image.

What do you think? Which one do you prefer?
