    I'm not used to that, but it's a great feeling to be able to give someone a good feeling and flashback to the childhood. Thank you J-O, glad I could help... :-)
    - and as you know, the childhood memories are the absolutely best memories you can possibly get.

      Despite discussions elsewhere, I post pictures from a walk on the south side of Frei (near Bjerkestrand) purely to show the one who wants to take a look how "crowded" it was on Freifjorden 1 Anchorage as the Storm 'Hilde' raged out in the Atlantic Ocean.
      Not crowded according to Singapore or Hong Kong standards of course, but six, and now seven, vessels at anchor here is not common...
      As I understand CVF automatically scale down images larger than 960 pix, so as I make my 'panoramas' by cropping in 1000 or up to 1400, I guess that is the reason for any bluryness then.

      My AIS say CLIPPER SIRA, but anyone with a 20/20 vision can see with their own eyes that this is NORDIC SIRA


      NORDIC SIRA and a small portion of the shoreline beneath Rastarkalv and Frei church


      Then I walked down by some boathouses at Freistranda. I know, if I had the time on my hands, I would have tried a longer shutter speed and settings so that the sea had blurred and a very nice reflection of the light could appear in the wet stones. But time was expencive today...

        The first pictures of post #243 was taken from inside the trees on the top right of the church there.

        The light was incredible here today. Which I could give it more justice...

          Last two pictures from todays walk (or drive, actually...., you know me)


          Outside of the frame right side is tanker BROVIG VINDUR, and in the latest hour, WILSON GIJON anchored outside of the left frame side.

              Thanks Thijs!
              Experienceing a bit with aperture, but raindrops on my lense UV-filter became very appearant at F7.3 and above, so this one is at F4.5.
              Satisfied with it myself also.

                no raindrops to see,but what i like so much is the 2 vessels in the sunbeams (almost) and that the bridges road is following the isle in the forground.

                  So much interesting ship activity in this scenic setting.
                  Yes I can imagine what you mean about experimenting with a longer shutter speed in the scene #243/5. Nevertheless, the image as it is beautiful with the light on the water and just catching the wet stones. I liked this one a lot, and the following one too with that retreating wave on the sand, accentuating the appearance and feeling of the sea in contrast with that smooth brown foreground.

                    We had the most beautiful moon in Kristiansund this evening. Here's an image from Viken farm at Bjerkestrand

                      Very nice indeed Svein.

                    A stunning location to see the moon like that, and perfectly photographed with the dark trees on the left completing the image.

                        Very beautiful mood, Svein! You have done well in this capture - you can with all reason be proud!

                          Visited Viken farm on this last day of 2013, and brought back home a few images.

                          A christmas star in the farmhouse window




                          The door into the farms carpentery


                          The wooden south wall of the carpenter building


                          An old method of making an outer wall, not only in Norway I belive

                            Seasonal mood in the window star, and very special colour combinations in the paint colours of that door.
                            And following a photo that is so much about colour, there is a Sterkoder b&w masterpiece, that superbly photographed wall detail.

                              A 15 minutes quick walk at Viken farm today, gave the following pictures:

                              Overview of the camp area down by the farm


                              The other way, towards Tustna


                              To the south we have the 994 meters high Reinsfjell mountain


                              A buoy must've come with the wind and sea current


                              The remains of what I belive once swam around as a monkfish




                              And finally, a "figure" inbetween the trees. A familiar guy this one Cecilia, rmember..?
