    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.

          On my list of things to do before I die....that darn Cathedral and all its statues!!!!!!!!!!! I mean, if some stonemasons spent so much effort on them, the LEAST I can do is study them!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

              Cecilia, if I ever go to Trondheim again, I will seek out this one and give it a wave. In fact, I'l stare at it so long and with such exclamations of delight that everyone will rush to see it too. There!

                Don't forget to also stand there a long time, pointing with your whole hand, whilst gasping for air....

                      Hi Nichu, only just got around to saying thank you for posting such an excellent photo here. Costa Pacifica PLUS a helicopter in one great shot!
                      Now today I see that Sterkoder has followed your example and got the same ship together with a TRAIN in one photo!!!!!!!
                      Great work guys!

                        Thanks for your nice comment, Seagull !

                        Must mention how thrilled the CP affected boy in the wheelchair was at looking at this majestic ship,
                        and then seeing this helicopter land right in front of him.

                          I must say that I can be really impressed and fashinated over the joy that these persons can express when they experience things.
                          True happiness!

                              I expect Jan-Olav thought he probably had at some time or other, which was my reaction too…but looking through only found this of the street in question in scarcely favourable cycling conditions…

                              So here's a better one, taken in 2009 :

                                These ones were taken on a Hurtigruten excursion from the southbound ship back in 2003 (looking the other direction towards the old town bridge):





                                But as you see I don’t have any of the lift actually in action….photo assignment pakarang??!!
                                (…now there’s an idea…tried attaching your new motorsport camera to bicycle handlebars and cycling around somewhere??????!!!???)
