    Why not call your new one Igor (as the "inventor" of modern helicopter) or Chuck (after a great pilot) ?
    Anyway, I'm not totally impressed up to 100% of the technical result of that video. I'm just as pleased, or perhaps more, about your videos...., at a cost a lot less :-)

    Anyway, these airborne "things" has a great potential, and I can't at this stage, think of much negative.

    My little "dream" of a short video would be if one could fly with, and around, a hurtigrute from..., let's say Stavneset lighthouse, and under Sørsundet bridge and into Kristiansund harbour.
    Nice weather, good relaxing music and viewed in HD...., mmmmmm, nice, I would think.

      Putting a link to a Norwegian video on an English forum might not be the smartest thing to do, nor do I believe links have the same effect shared here than coming across it yourself.

      BUT.

      There is always a "BUT".

      This story about Nidarosdomen - the largest medieval cathedral in Northern Europe - is something I had never heard about. There are a couple of "secret" rooms that haven't been opened for many years - right in front of your eyes, which you may never have seen or noticed.

      I know Lady C might be able to follow the story, and understand the excitement, but I also think that all of you might understand and see what I'm talking about.

      That was a really interesting thing to learn about I think.

        Additionally, we have also gotten a new set of wooden stairs down to "bryggerekka" - the row of dock-houses. The sad thing is that it's only a temporary initiative and will be removed again within this autumn.

          I truly hope you enjoyed the two previous articles (posts), and the following "impressions" from the beautiful city of Trondheim:







          - and not as old as the famous dock-houses, but still a well known place along the riverbanks:

            I certainly was very interested in those closed up spaces in the cathedral. Things like that have always fascinated me.

            I liked the link to the wooden steps article too, and although actually just a temporary "exhibit", I started thinking what about if several generations of design students had the opportunity to present their ideas as part of their coursework, and maybe other winning designs got constructed. And perhaps former ones sold to be reconstructed more permanently elsewhere with appropriate modifications for other locations, and the money used to fund construction of subsequent projects.

            And thanks for also posting those latest photo ...sunshine city!

              In regards to those wooden stairs in Kjøpmannsgata, a lot of people - especially those that are challenged in their walking -, these stairs are a true blessing.

              In the winter, that slope is terribly slippery and very hard to navigate for even young and agile pedestrians.

              If only the local politicians could get out of their nice comfy office chairs and see what great benefit stairs would have here....

                Dear readers.... I hope you don't mind me bringing in some new images from Trondheim taken earlier this year.

                I guess you don't have a choice.... well, choice you have: head for the next thread.

                This is Ranheim - my area of town (before):

                  Thinking it is OK for me to share more, here are some more from about the same time.

                  The light changed rapidly on these days.... early summer can be such a blessing when we emerge out from a cold, long and dark winter.

                    And here are the two final shots before I returned back home:

                      Naturally I am struggling a bit ...lot ...to keep up on a slow connection from somewhere in Sicily, but it was SO worth the effort to see these images. (...and thank YOU for keeping up with my travels my dear Captain)

                        Nice pictures from a great city. I enjoy Trondheim very much.
                        Now that we saw you point your lense towards Ranheim, I must admit I sort of expected to see an image where the lense would point in the direction of the new home. Maybe just so we could get an idea, not the exact adress ;-)

                            Thank you so very much for the kind comments and curiosity....

                            When these images were taken, I had no idea where I would eventually buy and to be honest, I had no idea I would buy a home this year either.

                            Here is a satellite view of my new home from GE.....

                                Not really closer to your work, isn't it? But balcony to direction South? And no cars directly around the house. Supermarket 500m, shopping centre 700m, Looks like a comfortable place.

                              And the price for "Ultimate Stalkers" is this year awarded to....
