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.

It's a tree! I mean a ship, of course.
