On Saturday Mrs. Kaadian and our good friend Daryl did one of *the* things you have to do when you visit Stockholm.
We got on a boat ! In our case we boarded the Cinderella line for a tour around the archipelago. We road the ferry that services Moja and Finnhamn that goes almost out to the Baltic. You can see open ocean but you are still very much in sheltered water.
The boat was crazy busy but we employed Daryl and his new-found Germanic skills of towel-laying and he secured us an awesome table on the second deck.
It was a great afternoon out on the water. Although 5 hours in the sun did leave me a little red of face. It is great value for a tourist activity in Stockholm, $42 in SEK for some great site-seeing.
I’m a little annoyed with myself that I didn’t bring anything longer than the 85mm lens on this trip. My 105VR and 70-200 are both languishing at home. But I was trying to keep the weight down. I guess I had been obsessing about fast lenses prior to this trip. Still the 24-70mm proved once again that it is a highly versatile lens with some great contrast.
This was my favourite picture of the set. The boat stopped at an island where there was nothing more than the red shelter and a small pier. People would hop off and on. This lady must have been waiting for a different boat that day …
This is the first of my 6 favourites from the sequence. Once all 6 have been featured here I will post these, along with the remainder of the trip on my pbase gallery.
