    Some more from that same night at Grilstad... it was amazing out there, like a whole different world.

    I had visited a very, very good friend of mine which is a Captain at Emirates Airlines, we had eaten dinner and walked all the way out on the reclaimed land afterwards.

    It's so quite out there... it's almost like standing in the middle of the fjord, with the waves on one side, and all the lights from Ranheim, city and Charlottenlund on the other side... to be honest, it's a very surreal feeling standing there. Living so close to the fjord is nothing but superb.

        I will finish off for now with three of my favorite shots and say thank you to my dear friend for a wonderful dinner, evening and walk!

            Excellent images of your autumn impressions and all the other images that you have shown us in this thread.
            Beautiful picture of Sponhuset

            I somehow gets dragged into the picture of the blue sky, cloud stripes, light and Sponhuset with gorgeous color mood with autumn leaves on the ground. Beautifully
            Autumn is a lovely time of year.

              Thank you very, very much Grindøya and yvneac.... your appreciation makes it all worth it.

              I do love autumn (and summer), much because I feel more "alive" (I know you know what I mean) and because there is more light and color too.

              Winter has always, since I returned back to Norway after having spent a significant amount of years in South East Asia, been very difficult for me. But, not to worry, I learn each day new ways to work around the "winter depressions".

                It's very easy to understand why that place is like a dream. It's not the land, it's not the sea, it's not the sky either - it's the combination of them being present at the same place.

                  I agree. I was literally blown away out there. It was bordering surreal. At one side, you had the silent fjord, and on the other side you had the noisier suburban town with all the lights and sounds.... and the feeling of almost being in the middle of the fjord was something different. (Even though "middle of the fjord" is far from the truth geographically.)

                    THIS IS SOMETHING TO BOOKMARK!

                    The local paper Adressa, also known by its full name Adresseravisen, has built a new media-house across the Nidelven river from Royal Garden Hotel.

                    The sun shades at the windows contains pictures from their archives....

                    In this link, you are able to click on each picture and see them on your computer, with a short narration (in Norwegian).

                    For the clever of you, can you spot the TWO Hurtigruten - related incident-images?

                    Which two "happenings" are they?

                          I guess you mean the Sanct Svithun wrecking in 1962.
