More Sea Wind. And in case you missed it, the previous entry on the ship contains additional photographs and a detailed history. The photographs below show the ship arriving in and departing from Turku on 12 August 2011, photographed from Ruissalo (albeit from different locations). Click on the individual images to see them in larger size.

Arriving in the harbour in much better lighting than in the previous entry. The black blob aft of the the Sea Wind's radar mast is the funnel of the Isabella.
Sea Wind reversing into quay in front of her fleetmate Silja Europa. The building just visible behind the aft superstructure of the Silja Europa is the Turku Castle.
Later, that same evening: The Sea Wind sailing on a meadow after departing from Turku.
The moon was (barely) visible above the Sea Wind's bridge in the original image, but it was sadly obliterated when treating the image.


  1. Hyviä kuvia Kalle, tosta yhdestä tulee hauska vaikutelma niinkun laiva ajas tos ruohikossa:)

  2. Täytyy myöntää että kuvasta tuli noin hyvä ihan vahingossa, olitiin jo lähdössä pois ja kävellessä sitten Sea Wind vaan sattu osumaan sopivasti kohdalle. ;)
