    Polarlys docked at Skansekaia, Ålesund, Hurtigrutens traditional berth. Note that her anchor is set due to the rusty weather. The anchor set like this works like an additional fore thruster which helps pulling her out from the quay even in strong wind.

        Seascape/skyscape with crosses. A freighter crosses Stadhavet in nice weather outside Ervik, Stadlandet, seen through the crosses on the old seaside graveyard there.

          On a warm and hazy summer morning, Richard With called at Florø....

            (See previous post): Along the coast, the weather changes suddenly. As Richard With departed Florø, the haze went away, and I could take this crystal clear seascape/landscape/skyscape (I admit I had Seagull in mind). In the background to the right, you can see the supply ship Rem Forza approaching and right ahead of RW is the famous Stabben lighthouse.

            I like pictures where there is some kind of content beyond the very imaging of a ship. This is a good example; the supply ship Rem Forza approaches Florø and then this little boat appears in the Pakarang view. And there is my picture, with a contrast between the elements.



            Same here:

              A few days ago, I visited Vestkapp with the purpose to take some evening seascapes from Norways most western point.
              But I hadn’t reckn’d with the fog.
              In the morning, the air was clear and clean, but during the day moisture evaporated from the ocean, clouds started to build and in the afternoon Vestkapp was enclosed in thick fog. Two days in a row.
              But from one of the morning pictures you can see the Norwegaian Coast Guard cutter making a wide detour of the infamous rocks Bukketjuvane (now very well known from earlier posts in this thread).



              And we can see the view towards the north (Runde to the west/left), with the rest of the nights fog over the sea



              And then the horses came.

              Seascape with horse, Vestkapp.

              Regards; Sigve.

                I know them from earlier visits.
                Two years ago, they were grazing on the top of Vestkapp.
                Now they were here again. They were very beautiful, very elegant, very aristocratic (horses always are). Their job seemed to be to check up the parking lot, searching for some kind of food as a sort of parking fee. Maybe they needed variation in their diet. They were very polite about it, patient but quite insistent. And friendly, yes.





                Checking up the photographers car:

                  The ferry Barmøy (Barmen - Barmsund, south of Selje, Stadlandet) is one of the tiniest ferries in Norway.



                  The drivers must back their cars on board.

                            Simply wonderful photos, Sigve. I am 'catching up' at the moment, and having read your post in the Serenissima thread first, I had not been expecting any photos from Flåm, so what a joy! In some respects it is good photo opportunity when a ship anchors off rather than at the quayside, at least I sometimes think that when it isn't possible for me to get out at the right time to see a ship approaching or departing. Anyway, you sure made the most of this opportunity. .

                          Beautiful photos Sigve - she looks great, especially in those surroundings.
                          Cheers,

                          Mark.

                            Thank You, Mark. It's a bit tricky to take pictures of her in Flåm. It was 2000 hrs, the light startet to go, heavy shadows, the fjord is relatively wide and Serenissima relatively small, and she anchors in the middle of the fjord. (I don't know why she doesn't use the quay), She's staying there for 24 hours each time and maybe they prefer to use tenders instead of go to and from the quay. Anyway, Idon't come closer unless I have a boat. And I haven't.
