The Star shortly after departing from Helsinki's Länsisatama on 11 April 2008, photographed from Hernesaari. Click on the individual images to view full size.

The bulbous bow is an interesting invention. And it can certainly provide for very cool photographs from time to time.

Hernesaari is, unfortunately, far from an ideal place for photographs... at least in the afternoons which is when I'm usually up and about enough to take photographs. That said, this isn't a bad shot at all.

Star in the sun.
