Lakeside ships / Buques en lagos / Bateaux sur les lacs

In English:

In my country there are thousands of lakes. So it is quite natural that in many cities there are cruises on nearby lakes. In my post I am presenting vessels from four cities: Kuopio, Lappeenranta, Mikkeli and Savonlinna.

Sometimes I took many photos from one ship, but then from in front of them, from the back and side photos.

En español:

En mi país hay miles de lagos. Por consiguiente es muy natural que en muchas ciudades se hacen cruceros en lagos cercanos. En mi puesto voy a presentar barcos de cuatro ciudades: Kuopio, Lappeenranta, Mikkeli y Savonlinna.

A veces, tomé muchas fotos de un barco, pero luego de atrás de ellos, por delante y por un lado.

En francais:

Dans mon pays il ya des milliers de lacs. Il est donc tout naturel que, dans de nombreuses villes il ya des croisières sur les lacs proches. Dans mon post, je vais vous présenter les navires de quatre villes: Kuopio, Lappeenranta, Mikkeli et Savonlinna.

Parfois, j’ai pris de nombreuses photos d’un navire, mais alors de devant d’eux, de l’arrière et des photos du côté.

  1. Bonjour Matti,
    C’est surprenant, où qu’on soit dans le Monde, sur le Mississippi, le Nil, en Finlande…. je trouve qu’au fil des ans, décennies, siècles, ces bateaux n’ont pas tant que ça évolué, d’un point de vue esthétique. J’adore ce charme rétro qui nous permet de nous replonger dans une autre époque, et bien-sûr de rêver de jolies croisières ! 🙂
    Bonne journée.

    • Bonjour Marion.

      Quelques bateaux sont vieux. Une example est “S/S Karjalankoski” de l’an 1905. C’est bien que t’as plaît mon blog. Bonne journée.

  2. Je reviens et profite de ton sujet pour te montrer une des dernières réalisations d’un chantier naval de Gujan-Mestras, sur le Bassin d’Arcachon : “le Chanaz”, bateau à aube et à propulsion électrique qui navigue en Savoie
    http://ducoteduteich2.wordpress.com/tag/le-chanaz/
    Une aube qui peut nous rappeler les bateaux du Mississippi ! 😛

    • Que joli bateau, le Chanaz!!! Il y avait un canal oú c’est passé. J’aime les canaux, parce que lá-bas oú (Varkaus) vivais dans ma jeunesse il y a un canal. J’ai aussi quelques photos oú un bateau passe par le canal.

      Merci beaucoup pour nous montrer “le Chanaz”.

  3. Wow! You are so fortunate to live in an area with so many lakes and so many very unique and interesting ships! I like them all! What impressive photos. I could linger for hours around each ship. I really like the Savonlinna photo!

    By the way, we’ve moved to our own website and have a new photoblog: http://www.surfaceandsurfacephotography.com/photoblog/

    • Hello Anna.

      So nice to read that You like my photos. Town of Savonlinna is very beautiful town with its medieval castle in which every summer there are held Opera Festivals inside its walls. Also nearby there is world’s biggest wooden church.

  4. Good evening, Matti
    It is very beautiful and interesting vessels, which you imagine, and the view over the lakes. The color reproduction and reflections in water are brilliant. Everything looks very neat and clean. It must be a pleasure and experience to make a boat trip to the lakes. I think the landscape around it is very beautiful, as is seen in many of your pictures, too. I am grateful that I could look at this page and look forward to the next picture. It is a beautiful experience for me to travel with you in this way through the world. I wish you and Anja all the best for your health and daily ways. Thank you for your comment. Dear greetings Christel

  5. This is a beautiful and interesting series of photos! The ships are gorgeous and they appear to be very well cared for. How pleasant it must be to take a cruise on them!

    • Hi Montucky.

      To cruise on a lake is en experience always and this is valid for us also. Those cruises can last from few hours to some days from one town to another. Thank You visiting my site.

    • Hi Kateri.

      You are welcome Kateri. So nice to read that You liked to take a “photographic tour of these historical ships”. Mayn of them are steam ships which are in good conditions.

  7. Viewing these pictures is like a little vacation. I really like the reflections in some of the shots. Funny coincidence, I checked in to your blog and got to see all the nice boats and I’m going on a vacation cruise today,planning to take photos.

    • Hi Jim.

      I agree with You that there are some great reflections, especially in those photos taken in Savonlinna. Concerning coincidencies, they happen to me all the time.

      I wish to You happy vacation cruise.

  8. Very cool, Matti! I agree with Jim – looking at the pictures has been a quick escape from my snowy evening!

    • Hi Emily.

      Very good. I am smiling because just this Friday morning I published a blog showing how much there is snow still here. Those photos I took few days ago. I am waiting for spring so hard.

  9. Thank you for giving me this link. I really did enjoy seeing your pictures, and especially like the Savonlinna photos. I also saw your video, and commented on it (and liked it). Again, you are the true photographer here, and I am in awe at your pictures.

    • Hi Luchanitravel.

      I am very glad that You checked this post of mine. I love those old steam ships; maybe they are a “specialty” of Finland.

      There is yet one cruise which we have made in Finland and it might be interesting for You.

      Cruising on the Lake Inari (Beyond the Arctic Circle)

      Check also in one of my comment which kind of cruise ship it is. Very ecological.

      I thank You again for Your visits and comments.

      Have a lovely day!
