Estonia - Lahemaa National Park - Sunset over Boulders in Käsmu at Gulf of Finland - Baltic coast

Less than an hour's drive from Tallinn, Lahemaa National Park offers a rich and varied landscape, amazing short hikes and the unlikely prospect of meeting another person. Lahemaa is the oldest and largest national park in Estonia representing the nature and cultural heritage, typical of North Estonia. Established in 1971, covering an area of 72,500 ha. It encompasses 47,410 ha of land and 25,090 ha of sea. Kasmu in particular is very lovely area with exceptionally many boulders (the largest field of stones in Estonia, the big Uustalu Suurekivi). There are large boulders on the northeastern tip of Vana-Jüri as well.

 

Top of the Käsmu peninsula is a real paradise for landscape photographer, you can shoot sunset and sunrise or moonrise from one spot with so many boulders in very shallow sea and all that during those looong nights, only downside - sleep max 3 hours (not enough for me!)

 

Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark II; Lens’s focal length: 17.00 - 40.00 mm Focal length: 17.00 mm; Aperture: 11, Exposure time: 32.0 s, ISO: 50
