    Let me say it this way:
    I don't know a lot about one thing, I know a little bit about a lot.
    (At least I try to).

    This might not answer any question, but I love to dig into things and find out things for myself, either by internet or books.
    You never know what you'll need of info about this and that, so I put such info in a special drawer in the back of my head for future use.
    I don't know how to put it, but if you're interested in something, it's easy to get info about it and to find answers about the area of your interest.

      I have never seen so good, bright, clear and sharp pictures from your hands!!!
      I'm very, VERY, impressed!!
      First of all, thank you Sterkoder for your comment.

      I'm constantly trying to improve my photo technique, and it looks like it has been better when we talk about light, clarity and sharpness. I hope I can maintain the images on this level. Right now I am happy with my photos.

      My photo equipment is the same as usual.
      (Olympus E-510, lenses: 28-84mm, 80-300mm, and 140-600mm) .


      "Leik" on her way south this afternoon.

          "Vestviking" departs Kristiansund this Sunday afternoon.





          I'm not sure what the N on the funnel stands for, but I would guess it's for the managing owner Hans Einar Njåstad. The owner is P/R Johrema ANS, and this is a purse seiner/trawler built at Th. Hellesøy Ship Yard in 1986.
          It's 206,5 feet long and 39,3 feet wide, has Wichmann main engine of 3.260 bhp giving the vessel a top speed of 14 knots consuming 8.000 ltr. fuel pr. day at that speed.

                This fellow don't need any ice, she is a factory trawler.
                More like they are delivering frozen or salted Cod, Ling or even Alaskan Cod, which will be processed in KSU and exported as Bacalao Norvege to the Portuguese and Brazilian to eat during NEXT Easter. God Paaske!!!

                  I'm sure you're right, and I should've understood that myself. But thank you anyway, and the same to you: GOD PÅSKE!!!

                      Finally a new picture from me here in Alta. To even more it will be, since I got me an apartment overlooking the harbor. Here are some pictures of some fishing boats that are docked here in Alta.

                        What is the tall concrete structure in the background?

                          Looks like it says NORCEM on the top, and from that I think it could have something to do with cement... maybe a cement storage tank?

                                Can not the Russian trawlers stay on their side of the Barents Sea. They are so ugly that I almost vomited! They could have used some of the money they earn on the fish to boat paint....
