Absolutely spectacular work on this vessel.  :-))

What really sets it apart is the photography with the scale-appearing rocks in the background and underwater plant growth, etc. Real, open water too and not blue swimming pool water.

If you can, action shots next! In motion, with a wake and all.

Lovely work here Hama!!!  :-))
 
I agree about the photos - so realistic.
 
And I agree with John about the DS Wilhelm Tham - that is a beautiful ship and I am very tempted by her. Do you know if she is mainly berthed in Gothenburg?  We are paying a visit to Sweden this year for the last two weeks in May, but I dont think she is running until June but would love to be able to at least see her on the berth.  We will also be spending a few days in Stockholm, so am looking forward to a bit of a 'ferry-fest' in the archipelago!!!! Any recommendations?
 
All the best,
Carl  :-))

Hello, and thanks both of you for your compliments! Very kind. And yes, I will take some more photos when I can. There has been some more details added and more to come.
Carl, all three canal boats, Wilhelm Tham, Diana and Juno are usually moored in Gothenburg during the winter break. If you are coming to Stockholm, I can definitely recommend a suitable archipelago tour if that would be of interest to you. Unfortunately my boat, m/s Dalaro, is scheduled to be laid up for maintenance in May but perhaps a visit onboard could be of interest anyway?
All the best,
