Some magic for the photo today, and the interior of the Colorline ‘Color Magic’ ferry, which sails between Oslo (Norway) and Kiel (Germany) in around 20 hours. The ferry is Norwegian registered, and is the largest ferry in the world, weighing in at 75 156 tons and carrying 2700 passengers. It has 15 decks, and a long promenade, as pictured below. The 223m long ferry was built in Finland (as many of them are) and has a top speed of about 41kmh/25mph. It can carry about 550 cars. Although it is the world’s largest ferry, it is still small when compared to the world’s largest cruise ship, the Allure of the Seas, which weighs in at 225 000 tons, and is capable of carrying over 6290 passengers.
Not easy to get the white balance correct in this photo, as there were so many different lighting sources, but the Panasonic camera has done a good job to balance them all out. The photo was handheld and without flash.

A photo today of a German ICE express train, seen here at Interlaken station in Switzerland. Something of a success story for Siemens who build the train, as similar versions are now used in Spain, Russia and China. At one time, an ICE train held the world train speed record of 406.9 km/h. Between 1991 and 2006 ICE trains have carried over 550 million passengers, and have perhaps Europe’s most comfortable interiors.
