Okay, these are the final photos from my venture to Kobba Klintar with Bruce Peter. Possibly these are also my final pictures of the Isabella. As most will probably know, she is likely to be sold on the completion of the Viking Grace, and I don't have any trips planned between now and next January that would allow further Isabella photography. Of course, Viking Line might still surprise us and find a deployment for the ship in their own fleet... but time is running short, if and when they need to publicise the new itineraries before next January. Anyway, onwards to the photographs.

23 years and still going strong - for a few months more, anyway.
The lighting here was so much better than when the 'Bella came in.
Foreground islands yay!
I thought I'd make a panoramic photo of this one - but then it looked so much better without any further cropping.
Upright photo! Mark the occasion on your calendars!
