        Definitely my favourite from among your recent photos - it really grabbed my attention

      Not often you see submarines any more. I think I can count the sightings on one hand in my area over the past 10 years.

        Unique sight of a sub.

        Comment


          WOW! That is a nice capture, Jack!

          At first, I didn't get it... I didn't see the submarine, but a few seconds later, there was something in the water!

          Another thing that got my attention is the typing on the side below the bridge door: it says HYBRID. Is this a hybrid propulsion vessel as in batteries and conventional engine?

            Trondheim is packed with navy vessels (Just saying ). I'm in Kristiansund and can't do anything about it
            A total of 16 war ships, including two submarines, will be in Trondheim from 19.-24. October to attend the Pre-Sail Conference for NATOs Southern Fleet, before the start of the gigantic NATO exercise Trident Juncture on the 25th.

              Yeah, you are right. Got some photos of the Dutch giants in the canal yesterday, while heading for one of my jobs.

              Will share the photo(s) of those within tonight!

              Today, the weather is really sucky! It rains like there is no tomorrow, and I don't want to drown my camera...

                Same type weather as here then. Stormy, heavy rain and thunder/lightning.
                I understand you don't want to go out with your camera..., it's enough with one drowned camera in Trondheim (mine) ;-)

              In advance of my tonight's deadline, here are some images from those massive fuel-supply ships up in the canal... seldom I see ships of this size in the canal where they docked.

              The nearest one is A833 HNLMS Karel Doorman: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HNLMS_Karel_Doorman_(A833)

              The second one behind is L801: HNLMS Johan de Witt: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HNLMS_Johan_de_Witt_(L801)

              And then, there was also a small Norwegian Navy tug responding to the name "Mjølner":

                  HSwMS Karlstad (K35) receive fuel at Vestbase Saturday.
                  This is one of five Visby-class corvettes and K35 is participating in the NATO exercise Trident Juncture 2018 going on here from 25th October until around 7th November.
                  The other corvette is HSwMS Nyköping (K34).

                    Very interesting images from Sterkoder - thank you so much for sharing. Particularly those of the KARLSTAD: that is a strange looking design, even though I understand the reason behind her design.

                    Never seen anything like it before: not with my own eyes, not even on the Internet - before now.

                    USS Iwo Jima (LHD-7) as she looks today in a fjord just east of Kristiansund. The small tug there is the Royal Norwegian Navys KNM Sleipner.

                      Tried to capture USS Iwo Jima as she arrived from Reykjavik at 0600 local time.
                      Forgot my tripod, and had to take a picture in pitch darkness with my new Pentax handheld. That called for ISO 26500. Yes, I know...., a tripod and lower ISO would have been a better solution.

                      Had a little longer lunch-break than usual today, and drove into Årsund to get a better look.
                      To the left is the tug KNM Sleipner, and behind USS Iwo Jima, appears the Norwegian corvette KNM Storm as one of the guard vessels for the LHD-7

                        USS Iwo Jima is the "mother ship" in a battle group of three large landing platform/helicopter docks (ships). The two others being USS New York and USS Gunston Hall.
                        Don't know of USS Gunston Halls whereabouts, but yesterday, USS New York sailed into Breifjorden near Aksneset light nesr Vågbø in Tingvoll municipality.
                        This is the largest ship (208,5 meters long) which has been in this fjord, due to three fjord crossing powerlines over Trongfjorden. They had to sail under these just 300 meters from shore to get under.
                        Anyway, USS New York (LPD-21), a Landing Platform Dock held two LCACs (Landing Craft Air Cushion) in its belly for transportation of soldiers and vehicles to shore in Ålvundfjord.
                        I took a short break from work and drove to Aksneset, and here are a collection of pictures from yesterday.
