    But funny anyway.
    I too thought I knew all the statues but it was harder than I thought!

      Wonderful collection from a summery city full of colour and light - the way we (especially me) love to see the city.

      Why that seagull was alone with that fish?

      All the others were at the city square looking for discarded hamburgers and kebab's.... LOL

        Since my daughter now has an apartment in Trondheim, due to her starting the studies to be a professional photographer this fall, I must say Trondheim is my second home. I love the city!
        We (she) got the key and took over the apartment this week-end, and what a week-end to be in Trondheim! The nicest weather and happy people all over, and then there is Bakklandet. You just have to experience.

          Bakklandet, you just have to be there to experience the mood of the city

          Baklandet Skydsstation, a café and restaurant said to have the best food in the area. We've just had a meal, so we didn't try. Next time though...

            What a splendid weather!

              Surreal? Bizarre? Disconcerting? I'm lost for words even more than recently /usually
              But I can definitely say that as well as all those first reactions it is also interesting/ /intriguing/fascinating/ and a great pleasure to suddenly click on this post and find myself in a Trondheim looking like so many images of Kristiansund I'd seen through your eyes and lens!

              Of course you've posted in this thread before, but it is those bright sharp blue-sky views that are like so many of your own city, and a familiar aspect of your distinctive style.

              As it happens I walked through some of those very streets en route to Kristiansten fortress quite recently in my brief time in Trondheim early May ...and even had some lunch in Baklandet Skydsstation!
              I haven't posted those photos yet, but slow isn't always a bad thing. Just to remind you, my Trondheim photos are in an own thread here in CVF, and, entirely due to my slowness in cancelling a Photobucket account, the links will continue to work! The earliest images there are from winter months when some of those cafés feel so cosy inside and welcoming in a different way. Anyway, it won't be long before you'll be able to enjoy Trondheim in another different way through the fresh eyes of a professional photographer-to-be!

                Yeah! Trondheim is indeed a beautiful city - when it's sunny and summer! LOL

                Glad that you are enjoying my town, but you really need to send me a text or something next time. Would love to invite you to a cup of coffee in town! I know most of the coffee shops and know exactly where to go for the best coffee and cakes and .... ehh... cinnamon rolls! I have become a local expert at coffee shops, having visited nearly all of them at some point over the past 6 months.

                And I agree, Bakklandet is our jewel. Imagine that this area could actually have been replaced with a four lane MOTORWAY back some 40 years ago. Local government wanted to tear the entire area down, because of it's decaying building and streets.... and replace the area with a four-lane motorway!

                Thank heavens for those who protested and protested and opposed the plans.... without them, Trondheim would have been a LOT less interesting!.

                Each time I'm at Bakklandet, I keep on thinking about the fact that we are so extremely fortunate to still have this area. As you say, IT HAS TO BE EXPERIENCED!

                  Absolutely. Every time I am in this city I think it could be a nice place to live . And Bakklandet, wow, I love it.

                          Sorry to say this, but I'm not looking forward to the colder period that starts pretty soon... summer has been generally nice, but I've been so busy I don't feel I got to enjoy it like I could have.

                            Spring, summer, autumn and winter - time flies so fast. Year by year.

                            Here is from a mile to Storfossen in Malvik earlier this summer, on a warm and beautiful day:

                              Here are some additional images taken with the camera mounted seagull: anyone know why the water here in Trøndelag and mid-Norway is so brown all the time?

                                From the second hike the same day, when trying to find a special viewpoint south-east of the city drinking water JONSVANNET, called JERVFJELLET (didn't find it though).
