Vasa is a Swedish 64-gun ship of the line, built for King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden 1626-1628. She capsized in the first mile of her maiden voyage on 10 August 1628. After years of searching and preparation from 1956, Vasa was recovered on 24 April 1961, and is now on display at the Vasa Museum in Stockholm. More info.


This shot is a combination of two shots as the space is quite tight in the museum. Stitched the shots with Autostitch. The shot is pretty noisy as I had to shoot at ISO 1600 since the interior of the museum is a bit dark. Best viewed large.

My Stockholm set.
