The snow started to fall yesterday evening and continued through the night and for most of the daylight hours today. Älv Snabben 5 is one of the ferry boats that run as part of Gothenburg’s public transport system. This photo taken from Älv Snabben 4, just off the Lindholmen ferry stop.
The general cargo vessel “Malmö” moored at Lindholmen. Malmö is Sweden’s third city and there is a degree of rivalry between Malmö and Gothenburg. The “Malmö” is clearly marked with the symbol of Gothenburg City on its funnel, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there were some jokes about Gothenburg owning Malmö associated with this ship.

This beautifully restored sailing barge – which is either called Kolding or comes from Kolding in Denmark – was moored in the marina at Lilla Bommen on Friday.
Below, looking down into the reflected image of the prow of the barge.

Summer fun on the river with these colourful canoes. These were part of a group of canoists making their way down the river from Lilla Bommen. Photographed from the Älvsnabben public transport ferry.
Liseberg rides – a history in a picture. In the background is Balder – Liseberg’s all-wooden rollercoaster that was the major ride of 2003. You can also see, travelling left to right, a train on the Lisebergsbana (1987) and travelling right to left a “log canoe” carriage on the Flume Ride (1973). At the bottom of the picture is a piece of track belonging to the Helix, this year’s attraction.
