      These kinds of shots are fascinating for some reason.

      I think it might be because of a brochure I remember from my childhood... it was a two fold brochure with an image of Midnatsol (1982) almost coming out of the cover in a head-on shot.

      Till this day, I still love these shots - and even though they are all shot from the same angle, there is so many different ships.

          Let me guess the airline of the closest aircraft... Ryan Air?

            Yes it is,
            and I believe - without beeing 100% - that the second one is also a Ryan Air. So two 737-800 in one picture.

          The Amorella, doing her 29th year on the Stockholm - Turku route. I wonder if she actually will be retired before her 30th anniversary. Nice ship though.

              Nice head on image, Patrick!

              This class of NCL ships are actually quite charming ships, despite the fact that there are many identical ships in the same series.

                The "pakarang ship view" I guess is something really exclusive to all of us, and only CVF-family knows what and why....

                    That would have been an amazing shot while she is making full ahead. Such a beautiful vessel - I would love to have been a Captain of that one some day!

                      I have the same thoughts from time to time, and I also think; why don't I have a small boat with an outboard engine? Getting pretty...., something, of taking skip- and boats pictures of them being moored. But anyway

                        My option is using a drone, but then, the port authority don't like them. Life is not impossible, it's just a challenge taking a little more time.

                          Belive I've said it before some place, but do like Mr. Per Kvalvik here in Kristiansund (he's on FB).
                          He is a licensed drone pilot from Luftfartstilsynet (CAA) and is in contact with the port authorities whenever he's flying over the city.
                          Should mention though, that he and the port authorities has made something positive out of it all, as they buy pictures from him to use in their promotion and projects.
                          He also bought a mobile phone to which only a few know the phone number: ATC-controllers at Kristiansund airport. It's like having adirect line between himself and ATC, should there be any conflict in the air. ("If you can't beat them, join them) ;-)

                          I will try to contact the boys and girls at the port, nothing wrong in trying. Either I get a "no" or I get a "yes".

                          I like that design. Very outstanding and elegant for such a big liner. Thank you for sharing, Patrick.
