    Today I took a day off work, grabbed my Pentax and asked my daughter if she would want to come with me to Smøla and Veidholmen, as she has not been there since she was 10 or 11 years old.
    We drove on board the 8:00 AM ferry from Kristiansund, took the 8:45 ferry from Sandvika and arrived Smøla around 9:00 AM.
    Here are my pictures, or at least some of them, from the Wednesday visit.

    The forecast said sunny weather, and so it was. Except we had a heavy shower of rain and hail the first half hour

    Close to zero wind though

    Haugjegla light house, 28 meters tall, operational in 1929. Light can be seen at a distance of 15,7 nautical miles in good meteorogical conditions

    Via my 450mm lense, Skalmen light house can be seen far west of Veidholmen

    There are plans to make this old Rødvingbryggen ware house a small hotel (don't know when though)

      Every house at Veidholmen got names. Not sure why, and surely not know the meaning of all names. This yellow house is called 'Latræva', which in English would translate to something like 'Lazy ass'.

      A beautiful boat put ashore at Veidholmen. The faded registration letters suggest it once sailed out of Roan in Sør-Trøndelag county (ST-16-R)

      They call it the Eckhoffbrygga warehouse, that yellow one there

      Towards the Veidholmen harbor the opposite way than most photographers take its picture

      A grey cat followed us. To women distracted her, so that was the last we saw of her

        Old abandoned farm on a small island called Skjøttøya, near Hopen Brygge Hotel

        From Edøy ferry dock we see over towards Tustna. The small white dot there is car ferry EDØYFJORD at ferry dock Sandvika

        Close to the ferry dock, Edøy church and Gurisenteret arena there's a old boat house with a couple of broken windows. Put my Pentax into the window frame and took a shot

          Oh Svein look at those steps up to the door in the first photo! - if the rest of the building wasn't there they would look like those paint-ball targetted steps in your photo in the trees that we discussed a few days ago. Thanks to your photography, this week I have learnt a lot about such buildings in Norway

        Such a wonderful way to spend the day, out at SMØLA!

        Been there myself a couple of times, quite a few years ago by now.

        This is one fascinating place and such a wonderful spot for photography - equal to GRIP.

        I loved the "lazy ass" house. LATRÆVA.... it would be hilarious to learn why the houses are named the way they are, especially that one. I think I can imagine why... LOL

          There's one man who could tell, as he lived there and Veidholmen was his heartbeat and breathe of air, he was a colleague of yours, a captain on board EDØYFJORD
          Sadly he passed away in December last year, an old school mate and friend of mine. So now I can't find out by asking anyone out there.

        Last picture taken at the ferry dock on our way home: Old Edøy church, built in year 1190.

          That is a truly beautiful image of the church: the light is just magical, bordering surreal! Well done, Sterkoder!

            Thank you. Have added a hint of an effect called Glamour Glow, and I have lifted the shadows, reduced the highlights and applied a touch of offset vignett. Offset in the meaning that the vignette center is at the church, not the center of the picture. I feel honesty is the best ;-)
            But by all means, I belive the picture is quite nice too :-)
        Working...
