Departing the harbour, with Sea Wind also preparing to depart in the background.
Passing Pikisaari.
The yellow glowy thing is not an added effect, but luck with the way the rays of the setting sun interacted with the clouds.
She is a very pretty ship, in my humble opinion.
Cathing the evening sun.
Sailing in to sunset (well, not quite... yet).
I really miss those calm summer evenings.
Really sailing into sunset this time, turning into the deep channel between Ruissalo and Pikku-Pukki.
