    Fantastic delivery there, Jan-Olav!!! Thank you!!!!

    Do you take the pictures from your home...?

    EDIT: By the way; M/F STORFJORD is 24,8 NM southwest heading Rørvik with 12,9 knots. Should be just under two hours before she's in, but then it must be too dark even for your camera...??

      Never too dark for me... I can tweak the ISO range of my EOS 50D all the way down to 12800: it'll be a dark image, but it should be possible to see the lights!.

      I think the time will be about the same time as Kong Harald leaves Rørvik tonight.

            Not sure if it's just the camera angle that makes this vessel look so low in the water? The water looks calm enough, and yet the tip of her bow still seems to be just above the water line! It looks like it would not take to much of a swell to wash completely over her foredeck. Is this usual for these vessels to sit this low in the water?

            Im not sure what we would do if we saw one of our local trawlers coming in that low in the water, i think we would either call the lifeboat out or call the fish market to tell them to bring send a bigger truck down to the harbour that evening! Lots of fish!
            Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

              To see fishing vessels this low in the water is very normal...
              When a vessel is this loaded, we call it (and here's another funny norwegian word for 'ehp') søkklastet

              'Søkk' is a local twist to the word 'synk' which means sink in english.
              'lastet' means loaded in english, so you see..., our words are also logical

              There's also a video on youtube, or a link here on CV of a fishing vessel loaded to the deckline going through an area around Ireland.
              The vessel had all the doors and hatches secured, and were partially submerged with only the superstruckture over the waterline at different times.
              Scary to watch, and I've heared that the crew were all on the bridge with survival suits....

                Norwegian words are logical, like German...and FUN!!! Very musical.....

                  Don't get me started on the Germans love of just stacking words together until they get what they want. They end up with a lot of words 20 letters long.

                    oh, but that's the fun of German!!!!!! "Geschwindigkeitsbegrenzung" is my personal favorite.
                    And, yes, Ralf and Doris- I'm being serious!! I think the German language is one of the most beautiful!! It's precise, yet flows so lyrically!

                                You have reminded me I had photographed Normand Master one very sunny day in Leith, Edinburgh - 17th August 2006.
