For a history of the Silja Europa, see this entry on her.

As the weather in Helsinki has been rather terrible this week, I haven't bothered to head out for the purpose of new photography. Instead, here are some more photos that I had previously prepared for publication: The Silja Europa departing Helsinki West Harbour on the evening of 3 August 2013. Photographed, once again, from Sisä-Hattu. Click on the images to see them in larger size.

Lichen-covered rock and other fine things create a nice framing for the Silja Europa.
Another Bruce Peter -esque image with the swimmers looking on while the SE departs.
The dry summer created foliage that looked rather autumnly even though this was taken in early August.
This photo, on the other hand, looks very summery, even though it was taken on the same day.
