It seems that the last time I posted a new entry about the Silja Symphony was spring 2011, so I guess it's high time to make another one. Especially as Silja Line have started introducing their new logotype on the hulls of their ships (the Silja Europa already has it, though I have not had the chance to photograph it in the new livery yet), and hence there might not be that many chances to photograph the ship in her current appearance. Okay, I admit I might already have hundreds of photos of her in the current livery...

But still. Silja Symphony passing through the Kustaanmiekka strait, outbound from Helsinki to Stockholm on the afternoon of 29 May 2012. Photographed from Kustaanmiekka. Click on the images to see in larger size.

In our ongoing series of"obscured but good": the Silja Symphony.
The Helsinki archipelago is decidedly not as impressive as the Stockholm and Turku variants.
