    I know the Captain of that ship - the brother of my own navigator, and my class-mate many years back.

    Will try to pass on a link to this page so that he can see himself.

        Wonderful image of Polarsyssel from Tromsø, Sir Azimut.

        Knowing one of the key persons on board, I had a whiff of information about two weeks ago, that the ship was due to make a short stop in Trøndelag. Despite it being a night watch week, I could not let this opportunity pass.

          After putting in so much tollway money, gas, time and kilometres to get these images .... I dare myself to share the rest of the images also:

            I'm so happy I made the extra effort to get these shots of POLARSYSSEL - the Governor of Svalbard's own vessel:

            PS: I just noticed that the resolution of the images on here is actually terrible.....

              I'm so happy you made the effort Jan-Olav. Striking pictures in a lovely light and surroundings of a ship that interests me a lot.

              I'd love to see over one of these ships; in a funny way they look quite elegant, very stable (I think) and although the resolution isn't great - the ships still look inviting.
              Thanks for posting, Captain.

            Nice vessel, nice pictures!

              I agree. That was a delight to watch.

            Thank you all very much - I have some pictures from on board as well.

            They are coming to my bLOG later today.

                Comment on Blog update of 2018-Mar-18: On Board Polarsyssel
                That ubiquitous response "Thanks for sharing" just isn't anywhere near enough.
                I am actually feeling highly honoured to have been allowed to see onboard this special ship, and to have the opportunity to do that through the camera lens of a master.

                That's "master" two ways - as a Captain, the chance to cast a professional eye over that bridge must surely have sent the pulse racing, and, as the master of photography I know you to be, you have as always captured and conveyed the experience and the surroundings. May I especially mention the colours, reflections and light of #8. And look how the view of the deck in #10 parallels the curve inside. You do the architect proud…

                And as for furnishings - we could enthuse about chairs all day long!

                Indeed Cecilia - suddenly Ekornes is everywhere!

              nice images,but the vessel is to ugly to look at.
              it would be better than old style vessels, but the looks of them. yuk.

                Some of these ships may even meet with the approval of Thijs??

                Drone pictures are and will be something totally different than images taken from a random place on land.Superb photos.

                      OH, heck - that is a LONG ship... had to go online to see her length.

                      317.536 deadweight crude oil tanker with a LOA of 496 meters! That is one long ship! She is new too, built in 2013.

                      Oh, Thijs.... you read Russian too?

                      LOL

                      You got a great place to take pictures of the ships - with no disturbing background issues, just lots of nice blue seas in the background!

                      The only russian language i can read is when it stands on vessels.
                      By looking at the marine traffic ais. There stands the name.too in " normal" letters.
                      I always look at it of it's worth to wait there. If the ais is empty ,i'm gone.
                      But on the smaller vessel is surprise surprise, the name smaller.
                      By looking at the ais i can see the name of it.

                      But this is the only free angle.
                      A little more to the right and the breakwater shows up in the image.

                      Another point is that it's far away.
                      I use mostly here the 200mm lence.
                      Until a big vessel apears, for the side image i go back to the Standard lence

                    I need a load of gravel under my balcony but I guess the ship won't make it up to Risvollan(!?)

                    Great looking ships - looks like the gravel business goes well.
