  • Beautiful evening and sunset photos... the clouds are truly strange... don't think I have ever seen anything like that myself.

    With airpressure at 1050hPa here in the Trondheimsfjord, nights have been unusualy clear and stars have been bright.... spectacular time of the year.

    • Thank you all for your comments. Yes, the Kelvin-Helmholtz clouds are for real and rather stunning to watch in real life. I agree to what you say about the time of the year and how spectacular it is..., in the middle of the winter. I would call it spring. Anyway, I enjoy every day the snow is absent

      • AMEN!

        Even though we don't have snow like we had in our childhood, I do not miss it.... as I get "older", I just can handle the snow, winter and dark, colorless forest any longer.

          Totally agree with you there, Jan-Olav. And I suspect you mean CAN'T ?


      • OOOPPS.... seems like the " 't " disappeared...

        Off course, as you guessed, I can't stand winter or anything associated with the season.

        • As Nautica visited Kristiansund this Sunday, many of the passengers booked a place on board the old SAR-vessel Hagbart Waage, now a charter boat operating in the route between Kristiansund and island Grip. In that green kiosk there, we find the Grip-boat ticket office and Kristiansund and Nordmøre Tourist info.

          I suspect this is a nice place to live. Unlimited view to Sørsundet and the west part of the harbour, and the police station wall-to-wall

            • Thank you for the beautiful photographic update from KSU, Sterkoder!

              I saw a program on Norwegian Broadcasting a few days ago from HAGBART WAAGE's first trip out to Grip this season: sort of a minute for minute program.

                Whenever Grip is mentioned, there's a pilot involved.
                All cruise ships sailing from Trondheim or Kristiansund, sail into international waters via Grip. They sail during the night, and re-entry Norwegian waters via the dedicated spot they take pilot on board down nearby Ålesund.
                That's the only reason I see for putting up Kristiansund/Grip as departure point. No ship has ever sent pax in with tenders.
                As for Amadea, she was in Kristiansund, as will Berlin as she visit us from 13:00 to 22:00 today, 14th July.
                It will happen again in August, when Amadea once more sail from Tromsø to Kristiansund and Ålesund after that.

                No nothing to do with dropping pilot at Grip. It only applies to vessels arriving Aalesund from Kr.sund, not the many that arrives from Trondheim. (I.e. only the two mentioned ships)
                Nothing to do with how they declare on AIS either, since this refers to the Cruise List issued moths ago.

                Ok. Then I guess they declare Kristiansund/Grip as departure port because they came to port, moored and stayed for the day (AMADEA 10th July and BERLIN today, 14th July) and left, via Grip pilot pickup/delivery to go to Ålesund. The next time you will see this is 10th August, when AMADEA once again will call Kristiansund from Tromsø, and leave via Grip to Ålesund.

              In the old days, or at least up to the late 1970s, fishermen came to the city with their small boats to sell fish. Then they moored bow in side by side along these steps, hence called the Fisketrappa (the fish stairs)

                • In Kristiansund we have an old abandoned school which will be torn down to be replaced by a 'Kulturhus' or rather a new opera house..., whenever that time comes.
                  Anyway, I was lucky enough to get inside the building, legally, in May 2016 and here are a few of my pictures from that visit.
                  Some might have been published before, but due to the Photobucket-problems, I guess they are long gone, so I repost together with five-six new ones.
                  I use about 25-30% HDR in these images, as I belive HDR can be defended in Urbex photography.
                  This is not Urbex per say, because vandals has been inside to "help" the time a bit, but anyway...

                    • WAAAAOOOW:......

                      First things first, I don't think I have ever seen any images from on board the FRAMNÆS... has anyone been on board to document her with a camera?

                      Secondly, the abandoned building photos are so appealing to me - I had to see them literally a handful of times over and over again. How exciting!

                      • Thanks.
                        If abandoned buildings and the "tooth of time" is appealing to you, as it is to me, click into Rebecca Bathorys homepage at www.rebeccabarthory.com, and I can assure you will be stunned.
                        Also click into her short video about making the Orphans of Time and turn up the volume. If that doesn't give goosebumps, noithing will...

                        I might have a couple of interior pictures from Framnæs. Will look them up.
