    Wonderful pictures. You are right. Kristiansund is a wonderful scenery to take ship pictures. Such a huge variety of angles and perspectives

      It came as a bit of a surprise to me to realise that AIDA ships had not visited your city before now!
      Love your photos, and I really do think that the cloudy rainy weather is more of a factor in my enthusiasm than a Kristiansund-blue sky might have been (even though the cruise guests may have preferred the latter! )

      It adds perspective, mood and subtlety to ship and background city in that 'pakarang view'. Another favourite of mine is #226/2 where the muted colours of this lighting actually emphasise similarities. I can't help smiling as I see that serpent eye looking oh so appreciatively at the yellow of the foreground buildings. It’s almost as though those lips might murmur "so nice here ...I'll be back"! Of course it goes without saying that you clicked at exactly the right instant in capturing that moment.

      Finally the attention-grabbing drama of skyscape, ship, and city, in that great goodbye, #226/3. Marvellous

        Thank you for your comment
        I take it you ment #225, but other than that, you're correct. She will be back...., three more times in 2018

          Sterkoder! - This is weird - I read your comment and yes, the post I referred to was #225 which was on the previous page - your last two photos in fact.
          So I logged on to say oops silly me, only to find that the post with the final photos is now at the top of the current page and is #226!
          Anyone else notice this?

            Beautiful pictures - especially those taken at Markussundet on her departure. I also liked the colourful one of the funnel with the buildings in the foreground.

            Kristiansund is a great place to get up-close-and-personal with the ships, and all the islands lets you get different vies of the ship. Trondheim is as you know, very limited when it comes to angles, unless you drag along a super-telezoom off course.

              Finally..., finally, the day came, 28th May 2018.
              I've been waiting for this day since three years ago, when I first heard rumours that Kristiansund was on the schedule for Cunards QM2 to visit.
              Anyway, the ship changed to Queen Victoria along the way, and today she arrived from Bergen.
              I stole a couple of hours from work, as ten wild horses wouldn't be able to hold me down at work today.
              My first picture was taken from the west side of Innlandet, then from the Vågen inlet at Israelsneset on the Gomalandet island. Then over to Innlandet again as she moored around 9 AM local time.
              After work and dinner, my daughter and I drove to town again to watch the departure for Geiranger at 6 PM.
              It was too much headlight from the "Hollywood"-sign, so we ended up on top of the Hauggata street near the firestation.
              Hope you all enjoy :-)

                  Ah..., much better. Light source on the correct side, at least for tonight. From the fire station area

                  Pretty! I'm sure you know the story, but QV has a 4 meters shorter "sister", as M/S Arcadia was ment to be the new Queen Victoria. At the end, the ship ended up in P&O Cruises as Arcadia, with the same main mast as all of the Cunard queens. The funny thing is, ARCADIA will visit Kristiansund 10th August this year.

                    Great images.
                    glad you could stole some hours from work for it.

                      The thing is, I'm the boss at this base here in Kristiansund now, so I only have to synchronize with my customer ;-)
                      We were two at this office, but my colleague got a new job, so now I'm in charge...., to a certain extent.

                      Even better than.
                      Keep it like this

                    A great collection of images from the long-anticipated day, Sterkoder, and that view from the Sørsundet bridge is a delight to see. Such opportunities too with a vessel of this size to find exciting viewpoints which combine town and ship - love the funnel over the rooftops #233/2 with colourful red and yellow buildings, and the peep from behind the library makes me smile

                    Comment


                      Wonderful captures from so many different places around town.

                      I think I may know why you like to include parts of your city in your images of the ship: the city part represents perhaps something you know well, both in size and design, and the ship represents what you do not well. Together they might give you an impression of the ship's massive size.

                      I was really planning to go to KSU that day, but despite all efforts, there was no way I could have made it. No matter what, I'm glad you had a ball of a time that day doing what you like and what you are good at.

                        Thank you so much for your comments. Always nice that others like your work, after spending hours in the field and in front of the MAC trying to make some story :-)
                        Anyway, today we were visited by OCEAN MAJESTY...., and I got the flu. Had to go home and into bed, but first I had to take a few pictures of the old cruise ship with nice lines.

                        And, friends of veteran ships, isn't it nice to see a classic stern without the terrible duck-tail construction? I think so. Thon Hotel Kristiansund can be seen on the other side of the harbour

                          A beautiful ship with a style and grace you will never get to see constructed ever again. Sad, but true.

                          Loved the images of Ocean Majesty, especially the second image. She is such a gem in a world of generic and gigantic, modern ships.

                          Oh, and GET WELL SOON!

                            About the Ocean Majesty and her lines; I'm very happy she sail without the horrible duck-tail, and if they only had put a more classic looking funnel on top, she would be a 6 on the dize ;-)

                            Have to get well, because tomorrow after work, we drive to Trondheim to look at a flat or appartement for my daughter, who will start her two year study at Norsk Fotofagskole to be a professional photographer. This is the first flat we look at, but if you know of a place..., please let me know.
                            Her only criteria is a fair distance to school and her own bathroom. The one for tomorrow is in Sandgata 11c, with Noba Eiendom AS (or Noba AS) as land lords. You know of them?

                          Today saw MARELLA DISCOVERY calling Kristiansund for the first time. She arrived at 8 AM and left around 3 PM, and with me being at work, I only found time for three pictures this time

                            Oh, So Marella Discovery also came to Kristiansund too?

                            She suddenly popped up in Trondheim as well, to my great surprise. I thought she came to Trondheim because of the low-pressure which was moving in from the south.
