Baltic city of Tallinn in focus

I visited Tallin, the capital city and 'jewel' of Estonia - the smallest of the Baltic countries - last January just after a cold spell had been through the country. When we arrived, the freezing weather had warmed up to a  pleasant 4 degrees with light feathery snow, a perfect magical night. Looking out over the towers and spires of the medieval city from my hotel window, I was transported back to my childhood. The scene in front of me was the fairyland of my imagination all those years ago.
Tallinn is an incredibly beautiful city and a veritable paradise for photographers. It's architecture will take your breath away! The cobbled streets and completely preserved 14th century buildings exist amongst atmospheric cafes, restaurants and clubs, galleries, historic churches, scenic ruins and five star hotels. After 4 days spent exploring this amazing city with my camera, I had a hard time escaping it's undeniable allure and boarding the ferry to Helsinki!
