One more entry about the Baltic Princess (aka Plastic Princess aka Baltic Pride). This time with just one photo, but it is a rather good one if I may say so myself. I was actually walking home from Sisä-Hattu and photographing Mein Schiff 2 on this particular occasion - I think I had just put my shoes back on (getting to Sisä-Hattu requires some wading) when I noticed the BP departing and decided to climb on a rock and see what king of photos I could get this time.
So yes, Baltic Princess departing from Helsinki West Harbour on 25 August 2011, photographed from Vattuniemi. Click on the image to see it in larger size.
