    Yves, oh yes I so agree –I know that poem, or to be more accurate the musical settings of it by Gabriel Dupont, Delius and Benjamin Britten.

    Pakarang - of the latest images since I last commented here, I am haunted by that clearing amongst the trees, like a path to nowhere, (#873/1) , and in the next #873/2 that moss-covered stone, leaves scattered on it almost like an altar.
    I also like the subtle painterly processing of #873/4.

      Thank you so very much, both of you, thank you again.

      873/4 was supposed to be the final autumn image from me: tying everything up like a tiny gift for Christmas.

        Plans for a new walking bridge in Trondheim, from Ravnkloa towards the fjord...

        I think it is a great idea, BUT, I think this should be paid for by private investors, and not by city budget.

        42 million kroner should be used for more important things in the town.

          I’ve been looking at the newspaper article as best as I can understand it. It appears to talk of making Ravnkloa more attractive. I’ve always found it to already be very attractive, and always go there at some point in any visit to Trondheim. I love sitting on the steps down to the water by the sculpture of “The last Viking”, watching the boats to Munkholmen during the summer, and have patronised a number of restaurant and café places in the immediate vicinity.

          But across on Fosenkaia (or maybe further along Vestre Kanalkai –I’m missing all my Gowalla check-ins so can’t be sure) there were some rather empty looking establishments that I felt might have been “trendy” once, and I attributed their change of fortune as perhaps due to the success of Solsiden.

          It’s always fascinating how neighbourhoods change in a city, but what is not always clear is the extent to which change can be influenced by planning decisions, and infrastructure such as a bridge in this case. In some ways the piecemeal development of Brattøra might have benefited from some overall plan or vision for the area (you once lamented the lack of a “landmark building” there).

          It will be interesting to see what happens and how such a footbridge might be seen as attractive to private investors.

                  Visit Trondheim, a lot of wonderful footage in that movie.

                  A new bridge for 11 billion kroner? That's a lot of bucks.
