    This is Kristiansund

    http://captainsvoyage.7.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=515

    Continuing from our old forum the thread containing pictures, info and other things about Kristiansund.

    Shot a couple of pictures in Vågen and from Varden today.
    Here's one from Varden, with Freikollen (629 m.) nearest and Reinsfjell (920 m.) covered in snow in the background


    Another one from Varden overlooking the harbour and city towards south-east


    Here's one from Vågen, with the pilot-boat in the foreground

    I feel like Kristiansund is "fotografert ihjel" (as we say in Norwegian). You guys must help me find a suitable English expression.
    Therefore I feel the need to go more into the details of the city, and try to find motifs none of the "hundreds" of photographers in Kristiansund has yet to discover.
    It's getting more and more difficult.
    My pleasure.

    Just look at the Trondheim-thread! It's dead, well, apart from my own posts. I have "photographed-to-dead" most of the threads I post to.

    You keep on sparking interest with your photographs, and your techniques are really great. Keep at it, my man, you are doing very well.

    Very nice motifs, all of them. I like the "new" style I feel you adopted here.

    These are a great catch from your day!

    Nice to see that you have found a lot of new motifs during your excursion.
    I actually liked those with the window best.

    Went for a walk in Vågen today, trying to find some inspiration in a serious search for motifs.

    The south wall of the old Jonas Eriksen company warehouse

    On the roof of that warehouse...., I couldn't help thinking of Led Zeppelin

    Old tug FLAX (ex. SEA REX) moored in Vågen. The boat has been moored here for I don't know how many years, so I guess this one has towed its last item

    Hey, wait... those are the favourite images from that flight!

    So great seeing KSU from that altitude and especially at seeing the Nordstjernen alongside her lay-up dock. Fantastic clear weather as well... thumbs up, Sterkoder.

    What a marvellous flight you had over your city, great weather too, and Nordstjernen as a wonderful bonus!

    A friend of mine has a Cirrus SR20, and today he asked me if I wanted to come along for a flight to Molde to refuel. I never say no to a flight, and today my daughter also came to join us.
    The plane owner in the left seat as captain, my daughter in the right seat as co-pilot and me in the back as a back seat passenger this time.

    Here is how Kristiansund looked today, and as we see, NORDSTJERNEN has returned from her Svolvær-Tromsø charter to prepare for the Svalbard season.

    Yes, free parking at Futura.
    What you pay in the city depends in which zone you park.
    The other day I parked at Kongens Plass (can't be more center than that) for 3 hours for NOK 62,-. I don't find that expensive.
    People always say it's too expensive to park in the city, but the thing is, they want to drive to every stores doorstep and they are lazy.
    It's a just as long walk from Kongens Plass to the Pier (as an example) as it is from the innermost store at Futura to just pass the middle of the parking space.
    But at Futura, it's FREE, and people forget about the length of the walk. Strange thing this.

    OMG! That is a massive new addition, which AGAIN will make the city itself less attractive.

    Just curious again: I guess parking at Futura is free and in town you'll have to pay around 30NOK per hour, right?

    Yes, Futura shopping mall is a killer for the city center, and now they even say that the Vinmonopolet will open their second store in Kristiansund in the new expansion of the mall.
    I guess, if the stores in the city center don't wake up, that will be one of the last nails in the coffin for more life here. Here's a picture of the Futura extension of about 6000 m2I think it is.

    So beautiful images, Sterkoder. From a city that is easy to fall in love with. I can easily imagine how that walk/drive along the quayside felt like. Loved the feeling of spring time in your images.

    And, om my goodness, the streets are so empty!!

    I guess they were all on their way to Futura.

    Old sundbåt RAPP, 60 years old. A group of friends of the boat is keeping it ship shape, they got economical support from the city and Riksantikvaren, and they are hired by the sundbåt company for charter from time to time.
