    Sad to see the remains of the old "sundbåt" but I guess we can't hold on to everything "old".

    Mellemverftet is a nice place for a walk and to take pictures - which clearly can be seen in your images.

    Actually, the year I lived in your city to undergo maritime school - I never ever went down to this place!

      We are affraid the same thing will happen to Nordsund (over by the Thon Hotel) as happened with Lyn.
      As for the Mellemværftet, I don't belive it was a place for the public to enter in those days, back when you studied here.
      Back then it was more like a scrap yard and not safe for people to walk around. Glad they cleaned the place :-)

    Remember inside abandoned Langveien school from page 102? Here's a video of stills in black and white made by my friend (with the key and permit), accompanied by the most suitable music.
    Please note the images after the ladder at the end, where he had a model placed in that tower room. Epic!!!
    Oh, and that guy on his knees there, taking picture of a radiator and the "ghost" in the doorway with camera..., yes..., it's yours truly).

      Ahaa.... now I know the possible reason as to why I never ventured down to the old shipyard at Mellemverftet! Sounds reasonable, because I'm actually surprised why this wouldn't be a great place for me to explore. Back in the days when I went to school there, Karihola and out by the shores of the Atlantic Ocean was my most loved and common place to get my walking done!

      Thanks for sharing the video in the previous post - epic work! The place certainly has a long history and the abandonment is extremely interesting.

        In heavy rain this Saturday afternoon, I brought my Pentax over to the old drinking water source for the city, Bolgavannet. Made some long exposure pictures there, 0.5 to 3.0 seconds.
        Camera settings was ISO100, aperture from f/11 to f/32 and shutter as I said between 0.5 and 3.0 sec. I used a tri-pod, obviously, mirror-up selected and a remote control.

          Beautiful images, Sterkoder - the fall colours also adds a lot of warmth to these images.

              Packed my Pentax and jumped out in the "weather from Hell" yesterday, and here are a few images from my short walk in Kristiansund.
              My daughter came along with her Nikon, to make a few shots for a school project as she's in her third and last year educating in Media- and Communication, where photography is a very large part.
              Her dream is to be able to attend classes at Norsk Fotofagskole in Trondheim, and to become a photographer, no less.

              Anyway, here are my pictures from Kristiansund yesterday, and for the most observant of you, you'll see a slight change in some of my pictures from what you (and I ) are used to.
              I'll let you guess before I tell, and no..., it's not the black and white, nor signature.

              Activity in the skate park was low in the bad weather. (I choosed a long exposure in purpose, so that the girl would blur and her face not recognized when posting at Facebook)

                    Kristiansund by night.
                    The pre-Christmas party season has begun, with restaurants and hotels getting ready to serve traditional food and drinks to the guests. We call these parties 'Julebord'.
                    This evening I took some pictures in between the rainshowers, and the first one show Restaurant BOTECO, a brazilian inspired place. They even have a decorated christmas tree.

                    The most powerful light on any Norwegian football stadium is here in Kristiansund. That's official from FIFA. Tonight it is lit for the last home game of the season for Kristiansund Fotball Klubb, against Sandefjord.
                    10 minutes left as I write, and the numbers are 3-2 in favour Kristiansund.

                      Looks good Svein - the rain has actually improved things a lot in those photos! Must have been blowy your way recently judging by Trollfjord hitting the news - and a 'rogue wave'?
                      Cheers,

                      Mark.

                        Thank you.
                        Yes, we had the strong winds and really bad weather just a few days ago, and TROLLFJORD got hit by a huge wave building up from current weather that evening and "old sea" from the storm before that.
                        On top of it all it happened at Hustadvika, a place known for strong current and sea building up in combination with that and wind from a certain direction.
                        And as we learned from our childhood years, be aware of the waves, and specially wave nr. 12 (or was it nr. 7?). That one has a tendency to be larger than the average of the other waves. (Don't know why).

                        Thanks for the wave info.
                        If the 7th wave is a myth, then it sure has an important role as to educate children to be safe close to the waves, when they play around on the rocks as all coastal children have done in their time.
                        When we grew up, we even "teased" the waves, and sure, there came a huge wave.
                        I experience it today too, when I'm at the Atlantic road in rough weather. When I set up myself to take pictures on a safe spot..., after a while, there comes a huge wave which retire just centimeters from my feet.
                        The scientists might call the 7th wave a myth, and I can agree that it can be anything but the 7th, but they don't have to tell me that there's not a wave much bigger than those average splashing towards me when I'm out there with my camera.

                          When I lived on my first home (Tabuaeran, just a few notches up from the equator), we had a series of large waves quite often, and my father quoted: One in every three is the one that does any damage if big enough, but I don't recall any more details. And when one lives on an atoll about 2-3 metres above the sea....it can be a water sport of its own, especially for the low-lying areas.
                          Ombugge - what are your thoughts on 3rd, 7th waves etc?

                        Truly wonderful new images from a wet and dark city - perhaps even cold!

                        Great to see that the pavilion still reminds "white" and have not been tagged out (yet).

                        Thank you so very much for sharing these inspiring images!

                            For #1545/1 I used a tripod (obviously), and my settings were 36mm, ISO100, f/8.0, 15 seconds on the shutter, mirror up function for minimum vibrations and a remote control.
                            For #1545/3 the settings were 60mm, ISO100, f/8,0 and 20 seconds on the shutter. Just as examples.
                        Working...
