Porvoo Archipelago

The town of Porvoo on the south coast of Finland is surrounded by water and forests and their summer boats travel to the islands of the Porvoo Archipelago.   The archipelago is described as idyllic and this postcard showing light glistening on the water certainly gives that impression.  One of the famous residents of the Torvoo Archipelago was Tove Jansson of Moomin fame.  This view speaks of the long lazy days of summer, which we have now left behind us as the first colours of Autumn appear and the light starts to shift and the days shorten.
