      Oh Paks, your post# 529 images are ROCKS AND STONES!!!!!!!!! Sorted and stacked too…such terrific motifs you spotted!
      Of course I am enjoying imagining that I have inspired you to take such motifs, but I really know your keen eye would have seen them anyway.
      (…and I do like the colours of your scrap metal too )


      I was just about to post this when I got interrupted and it timed out…just came back…and saw these Blue Reflections….speechless.

        I am sorry, but have no more pictures from this site.
        Didn't notice that Korsfjord was coming, so I went for a coffee with friends at Pirbadet, and wait for Deliziosa to arrive.
        (Would have been nice with Norge and Korsfjord in the same picture, and see which one was most "shiny". )

          OK... we were only 3-4 minutes away from your view: you might actually have heard the small salute between Trollfjord and Korsfjord at that moment in time?

          Which one the most shiny... ? Politically correct, we shine a "different way" when compared to HM's ship.

            Re: This is Trondheim

            The group called VISIT TRONDHEIM wants to make Trondheim the most visited city in the whole country, according to this article:

            http://www.adressa.no/nyheter/okonom...cle1647809.ece

            They want some 1,2 million hotel nights within the near future, playing on the "cuteness" of the town, all the things you can see and do. They claim Trondheim is not flashy, real and honest.

            With all the new hotel developments in the city, this is good news.

                      Ah, I recognise that bridge! (See my Kong Olav thread). But if only the colours were not so hectic, J.O. - subtlety can be extremely effective, you know.
                      And I love the juxtoposition of the first two photos at #539, both using perspective and detail to excellent advantage yet what a contrast in subject matter. Beautiful.

                        I know, I know... I know my photos have way too much color and that they are very hectic.

                        But this looks great on my screen and has become the way I like doing them. I like a colorful world.

                        It is a nice bridge: in Norwegian called "Gamle Bybro" (which translates to something like 'old city bridge'). It's really old and made of wood. In the earlier years, the bridge could open for traffic on the river, but, that is many years ago now. This bridge is sort of a trademark for Trondheim, and in an article published in the local paper, they said it was one of the most popular bridges to photograph in Norway, by tourists. That as well as the wooden dock houses that you see from the bridge.

                          Yes, I remember the wooden dock houses, I took a photo of them, too. It is a very attractive area, J.O. In fact, from what I remember of my morning visit and also what I see here, it is a lovely city.

                            ... and I bet you will love the area beyond the dock houses even more now, because the street is filled with tiny shops, coffee places and nice atmosphere.

                                Some statues are placed in secluded corners and are undoubtedly less studied than others….
