    Walked around in the city today, and in the park, I met a guy on a bench

      Did you console him and offer him a ride home - he looks a little lost, and kind of sad.

      That contrast painting really looks great - all grey, that building would be extremely plain and dull.

        I belive he found his own way home, that guy. He's gone now

        Most of my pictures posted in this thread are from the city "part" of Kristiansund, but if we drive 8 minutes east and explore the eastern part of the municipality, we see a more rural part of the city
        Here are a resting place (one of four) on the walkway to the landinglights of the airport. It's in Gløsvågen, if someone want to Google Map it.

        As we see, the municipality build to specs, as this one is for the short legged with long upper body

          The landscape in and around your city, is the kind of landscape I find the most appealing. Coastal-landscape... each time I see images from around the downtown area, and from Brunsvika /Havgapet, I long for the days I lived in this city myself. Those were wonderful days with a lot of time outdoors - we didn't sit inside with our faces in a mobile device back then.

          PS: That last image - do you know what it first reminded me of?

          One of those Chinese moon-cakes. Don't you agree, ombugge?

              I'm in a hurry, so just a quick favourite It's the last image. Colourful lightness v gloomy darkness ...all brought together by the most important and striking element - the shadows of the bars on the floor.

              Nice colors!
              Colors tends to often be a problem when it comes to low-light shooting, but these looks warm and vibrant!

            This collection is stunning. I guess tripod, right?

            The shadows, the lack of grains, the fact that white actually looks white, composition.... these are really good works, Sir Sterkoder!

            Favourites...? Actually, if I had to chose one, I think the "Kontor"-door is the most appealing one.... really cool! Also the shadows in the last image draws me in.

            Well done!

              Thank you for those nice words.
              Yes, tripod plus mirror up function in the camera and remote control for the shutter.
              These are the first few night shots from my new K-1 II, which I originally took out to try out the Astrotracer-function.
              This makes the picture chip follow the earth rotation so that the stars appear like dots and not lines, but what do you know..., I forgot to turn on the GPS.
              Guess there will be more opportunities to test that out later in the winter.
              The fact that I didn't managed to take a good picture of the stars, led me to drive further on and so I ended up at Mellemværftet yard.

                Just one thing struck me, I don't think that I've used mirror-lock up during the previous 5-6 years...
                Live view and remote is usually good enough.

              Very promising.... not only the camera, but especially the photographer. Really great work!!

                Thank you, Ralf.
                I drove over there prepared to drive back home without taking a single picture. I was not in the mood, I was not even close to being in a bubble og photography.
                There was no motifs to be found.
                Then I walked as far out on the quay as I could without falling into the sea, and then the first motif appeared (white sailboat with distant sailboat masts).
                When I first took one picture, there was another..., and the rest is history, as they say :-)

              Brilliant- and as Ralf states: very promising! This will be fun to see evolve further.

                A grey day in Kristiansund today. Had to bring my Pentax along anyway, and todays trip went from Flatøy (if you Google) to Sjursvika at Innlandet.You can't drive any longer on the islands of Kristiansund, without driving via the mainland Norway.

                The sundbåt company is 142 years today, the oldest public transport company in the world, in continuous operation. And the old classic sundbåt RAPP is 60 years today. Congratulation!!!

                    This evening we have the thickest fog I've seen for many years here in Kristiansund. Drove into the city, but couldn't go faster than about 40 km/h because of a forward view of about 30-50 meters.
                    Anyway, here are a few pictures from a city in fog.

                      Yes, new camera.
                      Much is the same on K-1 II as on the K-5 II, but there are still a few things to get used to.
                      As the tutors I use say; there's only one thing in photography, if one want to be better, it's practice, practice, practice :-)

                    Just to continue my fog photography series, here are some from this Sunday walking along Freistranda beachside and a short trip to the old Omsundet bridge

                      So many truly beautiful shots the past couple of days. The fog certainly gives an extra beautiful edge to the image.

                      We had a the fog up here too - last night on a round-trip tour to and from Lysøysund, the fog was so thick in parts I had to stop the car and wait for it to lift slightly. I could not see the road in front of me at all!

                      I haven't seen it that thick for MANY years!

                      I might be wrong, but is that Kranaskjæret Restaurant & Catering located on that abandoned piece of land (island?) in the sound almost beneath of the bridges?

                        OH... OK.... I was thinking about that small "island" under the bridge from Nordlandet to Gomalandet...

                        From what I can remember, there was some old building situated on that island in the past?

                        The old building on the small island between Nordlandet and Gomalandet is going to be demolished..., as it has should been for the past 30-40 years, I guess.
                        The inside can be seen in the forum 'Photo Assignments' and the thread Abandoned places, post #460/2-10 ;-)

                      After 6 visits to Kristiansund on Lofoten, I remember this town seemed to have a special "feeling" about it. Can't explain it in material terms. Gracious is one way of trying....
