MSC Lirica berthed at Skandiahamnen
Photographed from Nya Varvet, Gothenburg. THis one caught me by surprise - I was driving acress the suspension bridge in Gothenburg and glimpsed her backing into Skandiahamnen. By the time I had rushed home and fetched my camera she was almost hidden, as you can see here. I hope she comes back again and that I get a chance for a better picture!
