    Drove to Trondheim to visit our daughter Friday.
    Later that evening I got a message with a bit of "inside" info about the Trident Juncture command ship USS Mount Whitney and the USS Iwo Jima.
    These two vessels would arrive in Trondheim during Saturday (today), and the first to appear, was USS Mount Whitney. They moored over at the Ila Pier.
    Then, at around noon, USS Iwo Jima appeared out in the fjord.

    What about the USS Mount Whitney, the most important ship of the exercise?
    Well, they moored over at the Ila Pier, a bit out of reach for my 105mm lense, and the quay was effectively sealed off. But here's a cropped picture taken from Brattørkaia

        Great shots... we have some similar shots; Sterkoder, but I do like the last image. Shows off the ships unusual design, as well as the blue-hour shot at the cruise- quay.

        I didn't have much time between my night watch and my restaurant job... but took an hour brake during lunchtime yesterday.

          I also posted this shot in the Hansteen-thread ( probably more appropriate), but I also think it should be here:

          It's similar to the image that Sterkoder also shot previously.

            Another picture that I tried to copy from Sterkoder, because I liked his choice of perspective: the USS Mount Whitney at Ila pier:

              It's been very busy on the fjord here in Trondheim the past few days... a handful ships has been crossing back and forth continuously. The ships are US Navy hovercrafts.

              They never come in conflict with the ferry-route across the fjord, they seem to make a real effort to stay WELL clear of us.

              Hence, I had to bring my big gun to work today so that I could capture them. Here is one of them:
