Since were in autumn, it's a good time to look though the autumnal photos from last year, that for some reason or another were not put up here at the time. Even though the Silja Symphony was recently featured here, here's some more. The photos below show the ship passing through the Kustaanmiekka strait shortly after departing Helsinki on the afternoon of 11 October 2013. Click on the images to see them in larger size.

Quite heavy editing was involved in order to bring out the vibrant autumn shades of the foliage... but I think the end result speaks for itself.
Alas, I should have been out a few days earlier for these, to get the ship photographed without the shadows on the hull.
This shot really looks like the way crisp autumn air feels.
