    Re: Sarnia's voyage with MS Lofoten February 2013

    Waking up at 7h30 in Harstad, I can see only pink when I look through the window : the sky (the clouds, actually), the sea, everything is neon pink. Of course, by the time I put on some clothes and go out, it's almost over, only remain the clouds and a faint glow of light in the background. Yes, I know, I should wake up sooner. I really should. The rest of the morning is under a mottled sky, until the call at Finnsnes where the sky starts to clear up.

      I think I have taken a picture of almost every employee on the quay catching the mooring ropes. There were some interesting characters (and sometimes fashion statements!) along the way.

      Leaving Finnsnes, the sea is frozen in places and the boat go through thin layers of ice that makes funny noises on the hull. Close your eyes, and you are on the Fram! A while later, the sunkight is back, so delicate on the banks and the snow-covered trees. I feel like reaching out and carressing them.

            Such a great compliation of stunning pictures. Most of all # 123/3 is impressing. Such a deepness. Almost a 3D picture. Amazing!

              Thank you Ralf, I was wondering how this particular picture would come off and I'm really glad you liked it (it's Finnsnes' bridge in the background).
              The light was so crisp and delicate that day... Sorting out through the pictures it makes me almost sorry to have booked my next trip for the fall, I'm worried I will miss the snow and the winter light... But hopefully it's to discover new lights and new colors! You can't make the same trip twice anyway.

                So many special images, but I am drawn to the exact same one as Ralf. That lone tree is in any case an irresistible motif from many a voyage, but never have I seen so satisfying and well-composed a context …the bright horizontal lines, another line becoming two curves of bridge and land, and higher still the line made up of the many undulations of the mountains.

                  I like all of them, thank you!
                  But the tree is nice ... Nice detail - you don't see that many trees in the area !
                  I also like the one with the sea ice, of course (122-5 + the ones before and after - splendid!)
