    Oh, dear, it is indeed significantly darker up there now.

    But, still you manage to take great shots.

      Suspect (and hope) there'll be lots of NN photos when our CV friends come back from their autumn trip - but here are one or two summer ones to be going on with.

      Honningsvåg, this summer.



      Also Honningsvåg but 2006. I love the way that the ships become part of the towns and villages when they visit, basically bringing a hotel / restaurant / shop into the main streets.



      Wasn't sure if this one was a Finnmarken or Nordnorge shot!! 2004, ships passing in the ... er.. day!



      And finally, one of those trendy, hi-contrast photos that seem to be everywhere at the moment - maybe a little uber-arty, but having learnt how to do these, didn't want to miss the opportunity!

      Cheers,

      Mark.

        Trying my best Mark! . But these of yours will sure take some beating. Really nice to see these while actually on board.

          I must say that sitting in front of a computer in a tin shed in a factory in the West of England, Nordnorge - and indeed Northern Norway - seem a long way away!! The last edition of the UK version '71 Degrees North' was on the TV last night, which at least gave us a glimpse of Finnmark - although they have to work very hard to keep the huge Visitors' Centre and coach park out of shot in some of the 'wilderness' views at North Cape itself!!

          Look forward to seeing the photos of the trip - I must say it was significantly easier for me, there was 24 hours of sunlight when the photos above were taken!!
          Cheers,

          Mark.

            "Nordnorge" arrives at Tromsø last night, and Seagull and Ralf is walking to the port side.

              A very impressive shot of Nordnorge during her arrival.

              It's almost as if she comes out through my computer screen.

                Have you noticed the rather nice LED-lights NN has got installed? Gives great reflections in the port side water.

                  That's exactly what I felt in my 1990 trip, Mark. The ship was not down at the docks, it was in town. Step off the quayside and you're in the high street, as your first two photos at #255 show.

                  Asimut, that photograph at #258 is one of the loveliest ship pics. that I have seen for a long time.

                        Love the atmosphere in that last shot... would love to have sat down on a bench, watching her come and then later sail away.

                          Re: ::: Nordnorge :::

                          Ralf, the photo at #262 is perfect, couldn't be bettered as a ship photo. And yet I so much love the one afterwards at #263. That has a magical atmosphere, a haunting quality to it, and is the kind of picture I could enjoy on my wall and lose myself in.

                          PS. While I was writing my post, Pakarang beat me to it with the same thoughts.

                            That's good! I actually don't have a picture from Nesna. When I got down to the reception and asked about departure they blow the horn and informed about that they actually wasn't supposed to let people ashore at Nesna that day...

                              Jan-Olav, you can do that actually. A bench is just two meters away from the place i took the picture, i just needed some railing to simulate a tripod...

                              And Tommi, this was the widest possible distance, you could go in Nesna. I had to go that far, to become the complete ship and the house on the picture.
                              Seconds after this shot they blew the horn and i had to rush back.

                                While perhaps not being the most photogenic ship in the HRG-fleet, Nordnorge definitively has a lot of atmosphere. Outside it has a well defined design style, clearly indicating it's modern heritage. Inside she really has a own identity that for the time beeing seems fall in the gap that for the moment is quite un-trendy. Nevertheless, the design is very well definied and will in a decade or two feel so retro and correct. Nordnorge is also, as many other HRG ships, a floating art exhibition. The selection of art must be one of the most successful ones, the most of the items are very tasty, viewable and understandable for most passengers.
                                The overall build and detail quality is really nice and there are very few details to be unhappy about as a passenger. Everything is of course in ship shape and well maintaned, quite impressive for a ship in such a intensive schedule.

                                First some outside details:

                                Portholes in the bow.


                                The lights of the Nordnorge sign are doubling as deck lights.




                                Deck 7 starboard.


                                Deck 7 port side.
