    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).

                          I'd seen a photo of that waterfall you posted elsewhere, and was very impressed. But here you have extra photos of the forest
                          Curious about your reference to Jervfjellet viewpoint, I just googled it. From the height alone it looks like a more serious hike! But what these places appear to have in common is that they are really not that far away "as the crow flies" from your city. Especially as (unlike how the Seagull flies) you have wheels to get to the starting point if you can find it (...and find your way back after hiking to the destination!)

                          Oh, I nearly missed your question about why the water is so brown. Well, I don't know about your part of Norway and its geology in particular, but mineral content of the rocks is a common reason.
                          The other is that it might be runoff - rainwater carrying soil and sediment into streams and rivers. This could cause variable colour clearly correlated to rainfall and storms and the catchment area.. But I recently came across some research about reduction in acid rain in the last few decades that results in an increase of soluble organic carbon. and that is making streams and rivers generally browner. You can read a summary of this here:- https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...1121144957.htm

                            Thank you for dropping by, Lady C.

                            That particular day, I had two destinations on my map: the waterfall and then Jervfjellet. Apparently, there should be a some kind of viewpoint up there. After getting lost in the forest twice, I couldn't find the right starting point and the right route to it... I ended up in a swamp on second attempt, soaking wet and cold. Time was running and I eventually gave up and returned home.

                            Maybe some day in the future, I'll give it a second try.

                            For the water colour, I believe in your mineral content of rocks as the main reason. Because, generally, in many places in Trøndelag and northwards, the river waters and stream waters are generally very brown. I remember this from waterfalls inland from Rørvik as well - a lot of brown water, as you can also see in Storfossen-images above.

                            Could it be because of iron-content? There is a certain smell to it as well.

                              Jervfjellet seems to be quite spectacular but don’t go too near the edge!

                              Yes it could.

                                I really need to get up to Jervfjellet some day, but most likely not before next year and next summer.
