The Costa Luminosa is a regular caller at Helsinki, but it seems it was last featured on this blog back in 2011. So it's high time for a rematch. The photos here show the Costa Luminosa departing Helsinki Länsisatama (West Harbour) on the evening of 29 June 2015. Photographed, as per the usual, from Sisä-Hattu. Click on the individual images to see them in larger size.

The Vista-class remains one of my favourite modern cruise ship designs. Though admittedly the original, more heavily terraced aft design was superior.
Rose bushes remain highly picturesque foreground objects.
As do the rowan and... whatever the tress on the right is called in English bushes.
And naturally the traditional shot with The Photogenic Tree must be included.
And a parting shot with red granite.
Next time: Azores
