Memories from Summer 2020

Common reed growing on a shallow beach, beautiful blue sky and blue water on the background.

In the beginning of a new year it is good to look back, and remind yourself about the Summer days now that the days are short and Summer seems to be far away.
Vuoden alussa on hyvä katsoa menneisyyteen, ja muistella kesäpäiviä nyt kun päivät ovat lyhyitä ja kesä tuntuu kaukaiselta.

We think pictures tell more than thousand words, and that is why we have selected plenty of pictures to take you on a trip to Summer 2020 in the Bothnian Bay.
Koska kuvat kertovat enemmän kuin tuhat sanaa, olemme valinneet tähän kuvia jotka vievät sinut matkalle Perämeren kesään 2020.

The water level varies quite a lot on in the Bothnian Bay and due to this we have areas which are from time to time under water and from time to time above the water level. Photo by Suvi Saarnio, ELY-keskus.

And next it is time to take a look under the surface.
Seuraavaksi kurkistetaan pinnan alle.
