The photographs below show the Silja Europa departing from Helsinki West Harbour in the evening of 28 June 2013, photographed from Sisä-Hattu. Click on the images to see them in larger size.

My first photos of the ship with the Tallink hull markings, as it happens.
The day attracted a lot of sailboats... and fortunately they nearly lined up with the Silja Europa to bring you this shot.
More sailboattery and foreground reeds.
I didn't quite get a good photo of the ship framed by trees on both sides. Still, this turned out fairly well, I think.
Next stop Tallinn!
