  • Norwegian coast Bergen - Kirkenes

    I have a bunch of photographs from the coast of Norway since my travels with Hurtigruten. Many of the places are quite small and others hard to identify. Most of them don't really have a own thread before, so I thought that it could be a good idea to start a general thread for this part of the coast. I believe that we could have some more members here that could contribute!

      Kind of blue.


      Some snow in the air.

        I like the "dreamy" look of this one: as if it was straight out of a dream or something.

          It was like a dream!
          Well eh, to be honest, it's more a combination of a wet window, motion blur, lens slightly out of focus. When I realized that this image would never be sharp, I then decided to edit it as a unsharp and a bit overexposed. Turned out quite ok.

            Really look forward to the development of this thread, Tommi!
            I guess this thread will give us the details of the norwegian coast like no other thread...?
            It certainly is a nice atmosphere to the images posted!!

              Steinsundet is well known for every seafarer north of Bergen.

                The coast looks a bit different a bit further south. And of course, the direction of the light is also affecting how the pictures turn out.

                      Steinsundet, was it here the Erling Jarl grounded so badly?

                        Yes it was on Brattholmen that happend, and my brother was on board as a sailor back then.

                          Do we or anyone have a picture of the approximate area where she grounded?

                            Look at Seagull's 366 - Day 190 and you have a VERY good picture of Yttre Steinsundet, with Brattholmen in the middle of the picture.

                            Picture #7-2 in this thread is a closer look at Brattholmen.
