    M/S "Trollfjord" was behind the bus that was in Alta. I came across this bus when I was in Alta in September

      Popular ship for bus paintings!

      Great that she was painted with the best funnel color: the TFDS red, white and black!

          Trollfjord northbound at Agdenes lighthouse recently. Not entirely happy with these images, they are not in the category of 'super-sharp'... but in my defense, it was a very cold and windy day!

              I think I was supposed to write a bit washed out.. the white shipside beneath the funnel lacks some details in the strong sunlight.

                In a general situation it’s probably less common to have extensive very dark areas, so it’s usually white bright areas that one is more consciously trying to correctly expose for, and retain some detail. Or perhaps one is using some standard settings which are making similar assumptions.

                But with a ship like this it’s the close juxtaposition of large areas of black hull and white superstructure which is so challenging. I remember when my dad joined a photo club many years ago this situation was referred to as the “classic wedding photography problem” because it was usual in those days for the bridegroom to wear a black suit and the bride a white dress. At a club night when everyone brought along photos they’d taken at such weddings, everyone was feeling depressed with their results until a professional photographer who specialised in wedding photography was brave enough to not only show some good photos, but also his disasters!
                (Such a dynamic range problem would become worse when digital came along, although sensor technology is gradually improving.)

                The additional challenge when photographing a ship like Trollfjord when it is moving is that suddenly the flat side of the ship can catch the light and everything changes in an instant.

                  It seems the Hurtigruten white lettering idea has been around for longer than you might have thought – I came across this newsletter from late 2005 - have a look at page 6

                    Hello folks. It has been a long time since my last post now, but I will try to do it more often from now on

                    Today I went for a walk in beautiful Ålesund in a fantastic weather. Today here is about +10-11 degrees celsius That is perfect since I hate snow

                    Took some pictures of northbound Trollfjord today.

                            Very interesting newsletter, but as you also realize, that logo at page 6 is of course photoshoped onto the ship.
                            Anyway, I read it was the idea of Capt. Erntsen, and I don't agree with him.
                            Nobody along the coast has ever wondered what vessel they saw when a hurtigrute passed by.
                            Even when they build hurtigruten ships like cruiseships, nobody wonder.

                            But of course, when they send their ships all over the world to do other things than to service what they are paied to do, then there might be a reason to paint the logo on each side. To tell people who never have seen a hurtigrute what it is, and to promote the company abroad.

                            EDIT: Nice to have you back, Torbjørn! Must admit I've wondered where you were....
