More from my midsummer visit to Mariehamn with the delightful Bruce Peter: the Silja Europa passing Kobba Klintar, inbound from Stockholm to Mariehamn on 24 June 2012. Click on the images to see in larger size.

As you can see, the lighting condition detoriated compared to what they had been when the Rosella passed us about and hour earlier. Still neat.
Yeah, that lighthouse again. It looks photogenic.
And, as you probably have noticed already, the Silja Europa has been repainted with the new Silja Line logo. Not too bad once your eyes have the chance to get used to it (though perhaps not as refined as the old one), though the short lenght of the horizontal line of the 'Ls does bother me.
Delightful Scandinavian  ice-sculpted rock there in the foreground.
Mariehamn barely visible in the background. Well, not really, but that's where the ship is headed anyway.
Rather impressive wave formation to the aft of the ship.
Next time: Galaxy.
