    So that was probably one of the last shots of her at sea that I got then!

      It seems that the herrings are quite "fat" this year

      Here are an image of "Bjarne Nilsen" I took outside Sør-Arnøy yesterday. Heavy loaded with fish.

        Can you imagine the ride up there in the crows nest. The crew probably has to wear pads and a helmet when fishing in bad weather.

            The Crow's Nest is there for when they are whaling only, for better to spot the whale spouts from a distance. ("Dar she BLOOOOWS"!!!! kind of thing)
            But you are right, it must be a rough ride up there in any kind of seaway.

              Nice lines in this and most of the other fishing vessels passing by Tromsosundet. The paint job is designed to emphasize the lines even more on some of them.
              VERY different from modern Tankers, Cargo ships and Container vessels, which is designed with a straight ruler. Not to mention the Box-shaped Cruise ships and Ro/Ros.

              By the way, the Resolute is Scottish. Registered in Fraserburgh, but looks very Norwegian in design. Probably built in Norway as well.

              Here is a link to a site with pics of the other Scottish Pelagic Trawlers/Seiners: http://www.scottishpelagic.co.uk/about/vessels.htm

                As a bit of contrast to the "state of the art" fishing boats working the Norwegian coast, here is a fishing vessel of a different class trolling for Skip jack:

                In some inshore protected waters?? No, 70 n.miles off the coast of Sabah, East Malaysia.
                OK, he is out on a day trip in good weather. No, up to one week at sea in "any" weather. (Shortly before the first pics was taken we had 45 kts. wind and 3 meter seas)

                Here the weather has improved, time to get serious:




                And he is not alone:


                They works from a "Mother Ship" of some substance:

                Not much in the form of creature comfort here. (Not even a "thunder box")

                What attracts them this far offshore? An offshore Oil Field of course:

                Contrary to popular belief, Oil and Gas Field does not kill off all life in the sea, they actually attract it. Where there is hiding places for small fish, big fish will follow, as will fishermen. In addition, the bright lights attracts fish and squids during the night.
                This is Kikeh Spar with a "following" of fishing boats.

                There is supposed to be a 500 m. "no go zone" around any rig or installation, but how do you tell the fishermen that? Their answer is very simple; "we were here first"

                  Now, that is what I would categorize as a tiny vessel on a vast open sea... kind of makes me think of Sterkoder's profile motto:

                  "O'GOD..., THY SEA IS SO GREAT AND MY BOAT IS SO SMALL"

                      Ohhhh... Asimut, you are really a new master with your camera. I'm starting to really long for the Northern Capital of Tromsø!

                        I should be used to it by now but... they sure do seem to be riding low in the water.

                        Oh, and in a year or two I think we will see Sterkoder dragging around a SLR with a monster telephoto lens. Soon we will be able to tell if the captains of this ships have brushed their teeth.

                              One thing that has surprised me on my own trip to Greenland and in Lady C's images, is that the Greenlandic people appears to be very colorful in areas where the Norwegians can be quite dull in their choice of colors.

                                Don't know about the monster telephoto lens, but you might experience some change in my pictures...., maybe within a year..., in the way that they will look as if I've started from zero again.
                                By that I mean that I have plans to buy a new camera and learn that all over, but I can't decide between Canon and Nikon. Nikon I know nothing about, so the one I want right now is the Canon D500 and a lens with a wide range..., 30-300 mm perhaps, or at least not worse than the standard lens I have today, 37-370 mm.
                                But I don't know, the most important thing is money. So let's see what plans my company have when it comes to Christmas bonus this year
