    Sterkoder and Lady C: your words of encouragement makes a whole world of difference to me, thank you!

    Sterkoder, the truth is actually that the snow-flake image wasn't taken with a MACRO lens at all.... just at f2.8 and handheld.... 200 mm zoom!

              Two pictures from the hospital demolition:





              A new hotel is being built near the cruise ship terminal.
              Dwarfing all the buildings nearby.
              Progress ? - Not in my opinion.

                Trondheim is indeed a very nice town to visit. You might expect it to be a town at the sea, but for me it was more a town at the river.




                Everybody in Trondheim is riding a bike, even the Ambulance people. They all seem to keep up the pace, even when going uphill.


                As a Swede it felt a bit strange to walk around in Kristiansten festning. It was in fact built to protect the town from a Swedish invasion.


                At my visit, I never identified this marvellous building, but some of you might have a clue?


                Trondheim scenery at it's best.


                Any volenteers to move this lawn? Seems a bit steep if you ask me.

                  Certainly. This is the old/main building of the technical school/university (formely NTH) in Trondheim, now abreviated NTNU (Norges Teknisk-Naturvitenskaplige Universitet).

                  Nice report from a fantastic city, Tommi!! Thanks!!

                    They are all terrific photos Tommi, but the one of the fortress is absolutely perfect. Those clouds! It’s a “wish I’d taken that” photo! And I enjoyed reading your comments and impressions.

                      It must be a great honour to study at a university with such a great historical premises.

                      Thanks! I like to take real life photos and to make the best of the situation even if it happens to be a bit dull weather.


                      Some more from the banks of Nidelven.




                      Well, you all know Nidarosdomen?


                      There are really a lot of details on to look at.




                      Some of the statues are decorated with flowers.


                      On the side of the cathedral I found this plaque. A early form of sponsorship or just a grave?

                      A couple of pictures from the activities at Olavfestdagarna:

                        Let me add that the statues you have pictured here are: from the left: Mercy, Peace, Justice and Bishop Thoralk on the right.

                        The three first ones are the part of a set of four (the fourth one, Truth, is to the left of Mercy) statues called "The four divine sisters".

                        These four virtues were from earliest times seen as being connected, and are often portrayed as four sisters, each with her own personal attribute. This harks back to David's Psalm 85, verses 10-14:

                        Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet;
                        rightenousness and peace will kiss eachother.
                        Faithfullness will spring from the ground,
                        and righteousness will look down from the sky.
                        Yea, the Lord will give what is good,
                        and our Land will yield its increase.
                        Rightenousness will go before him,
                        and make his fottsteps a way."

                        In this image, from left to right, you have captured Saint Hallvard, Saint Sunniva, Saint Olav (with the flowers), and two of the three theological virtues: Love and Hope (Charity not in the image).

                        To the left in this image, you have Saint Paul The Apostle, in the middle is The Apostle Saint James The Greater and to the right is Saint Simon The Apostle.

                        If you want, I could tell you a whole lot more about these figures.

                                Two more shots of the many swans that have gathered there:





                                The weather wasn't so good at all: a sun breaking out would probably have made the images stand out a bit more, making them more dynamic... instead I had to rely on high ISO and my tripod to get these.
