Stena Arctica, departing Gothenburg


A vessel as large as the Stena Arctica, berthed downtown Gothenburg, can be seen from almost anywhere in the city.
Saturday, January 28th, 2006, at around 15.00 local time, the tug boats gather to guide the Stena Arctica out to sea after the naming ceremony, and visits by the public.
After almost a week of good weather, Saturday the 28th, was extremely foggy and dark. The gloominess of these picture are not all because of a bad photographer.
