    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.

        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!

            Thank you.
            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.

          Not one Oscar-winning picture in this addition, just two from when Sterkoder got hungry for som "night snack" after an evening in a bar with good friends.
          One of my friends and former colleague, is the husband of Renu, a thai chef who just a few weeks ago opened her new restaurant and thai food take-away.
          The restaurant was of course closed for the night, but when we are friend with the manager and he has the key...., spring rolls, here we come!

          Renu and her husbands small restaurant is across the street from the movie theatre

          And at at around 1:00 AM, there was one happy and well fed Sterkoder around.

            hahahahahaha.... looks like a very happy Sterkoder: not sure he became happy for the flag or the spring rolls(!?)

            They must have been really good.
