The classic Swedish clipper Atene in Öresund

This afternoon the classic Swedish clipper ship Atene was on its way southward in Öresund. I shot these two pictures of Atene, with Hamlet´s Kronborg castle and Helsingør in the background:

Atene, which was built in Denmark in 1909, has had many owners. The ship is now owned and beautifully restored by an association in Swedish Skärhamn. You can read more about the ship here:
(The info is for the time being only in Swedish, but I´m certain that the people in charge will be more than happy to reply to your inquiries also in English)
