    What are these ships, Svein, particularly the last three (I can't see the others too clearly) ?.

      Mostly cargo ships, and the last three larger ones are regular cargo ships for dry cargo to and from the aluminium plant at Sunndalsøra.

      The Freifjorden 1 Anchorage is also a place use for cargo ships on hold to get to and from in example Orkanger, or other places.
      It is also used for anchoring tankers to wait out bad weather at the oil fields, before they can take loads of oil on board.

        Oh yes and of course! Our great CVF meet-up on "Stone Seagull Day"
        I’m so delighted you managed to take these beautiful scenes in the very different winter snow, despite the battery challenges.

          The two ships seen in 330/2 are rather interesting. The big red one belongs to Norilsk Nickle's Arctic Express fleet and is specially built for the Arctic. Here is a video about the ship that explains it all:

          The other one that is deep in the water but carries no cargo belongs to NYK's Project Cargo and Heavy Lift fleet: https://www.nyk.com/english/release/788/NE_101202.html
          Not sure which one of the two this is, but here is a video of Yamatai entering or leaving port somewhere: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDQWAUegj3s
          I'm pretty sure I have posted a picture of one of them from Singapore earlier.
