April 16: trip to Tallinn 2
The voyage itself.
The grand, um, bowitorium. What do you even call this? A showroom, I guess.
Chimneys: just as colorful as the hull.
Looking back to shore before setting off. The entry to the ferries always seems to be through these incredibly long glazed, elevated tunnels, which is interesting from an architectural/spatial point of view.
Some nice sun on the deck, though it was pretty chillers to hang around out there for long.
Sun plus phenomena (note the faintish sun dogs to the far left and right of the sun).
It never stops being curious having the gulls flying around far below you when you're up on deck.
Must be moving, judging by the presence of the smoke.
Sun plus phenomena 2.0; also islands.
The left sun dog.
Helsinki receding — Agricolan kirkko is the spire in the middle; to its right are the spires of Johanneksenkirkko.
Plastic blue sea view.
About halfway across the Gulf, one could glimpse both the Finnish and Estonian shores, which was pretty incredible. This is looking forward toward Tallinn; the one sign of land you can see is the tower in the middle of the horizon.
This, meanwhile, is a view back toward Helsinki, and here you can more clearly see features on the shore.
Ferries in the distance, heading in the opposite direction.
Looking up to the ceiling of the showroom and further up to the bridge.
Chiaroscuro as we near the shore.
This bird seemed rather inquisitive (hungry?) and flitted around as we disembarked.
The dock at Tallinn, with the old city straight yonder.
