One more entry from the extensive photo session on 29 May, before we move on to newer (and perhance more interesting) photos from June. The Viking XPRS arriving in Helsinki, photographed passing through the Kustaanmiekka strait on the evening of 29 May 2012. Click on the images to see in larger size.

Surprisingly heavy on the exhausts here.
And coming in quite fast, considering how narrow and twisting the strait is.
My camera battery died just after taking this photo...
...but none the matter, I had a spare.
