Photographs of Star arriving in Helsinki's Länsisatama on 8 June 2009, photographed from the breakwater in Vattuniemi. Click on the image(s) to view full size.

On the deep shipping lane after the crossing from Tallinn.
Still on the deep lane, passing (from this point of view anyway) a neat two-masted sailboat.
Sun reflecting from the windows while passing Pihlajasaari, with some kind of a small boat -race being carried out in the foreground.
Nearing Länsisatama, with the now-gone huge mound of rocks in the tip of Hernesaari in the background on the left. It doesn't look too impressive from this point of view, but it was probaby at least as tall as the Star at it's highest.
