    It almost looks like they dipped their anchor in white sugar...

        They left at an unusual high speed, look at the Eiders paddling for their dear life!

            In the last photo, I like the gull just above the bow wave. Hungry for fish I expect.

                    Oh Eirik, those were well worth waiting for!

                    I liked seeing the views from the castle with the snow everywhere.
                    And I absolutely love the two contrasting day/night views of the jacuzzi with the castle in the background.

                    I think you make good use of a wider angle lens than I’m used to. I was about to say how much better your interior of the bar area in #297/2 is than anything I remember taking, but then realised that my compilation of TF photos was on old forum. What I like so much about your photo is the curve of the divider with the lamps and flowers, the angle of the floor lines, and the sweeping curve of the lines on the ceiling. Great view of the panorama lounge too with the emphasis on showing the double height and the ceiling.

                    Glad you had such a good day… and that welcome entrance arch made me smile!

                      The lens I use is the Zuiko Digital 12-60mm f2,8-4 SWD. If you translate that to full frame it gives you the same field of view as a 24-120mm. SWD is Olympus' fast and silent focus motor, similar to Canon's USM. For that nighttime jacuzzi shot I would have liked to bring a tripod to make me able to use a smaller aperture and longer exposure to even out those highlights.

                      Oh, and here's a shot I forgot:

                            Tragically, a woman in her 70-s died at the Trondheim hospital after having fallen on the gangway of Trollfjord.

                              Just a little report from me onboard Trollfjord in this very moment.

                              This is a continuation from my little story in the Midnatsol-thread.

                              I had a great day with my parents and my brothers family onboard Midnatsol.

                              But to use an unused ticket from last week on Trollfjord, I had to leave the rest of the family in Trondheim. And while the others are traveling southbound to Bergen on Midnatsol. I am now onboard TF on my way back to Bodø. Just to use onther unused, and re-booked plane-ticket home to Kristiansand.

                              I am staying in cabin 405. Outside cabin. But with those funny "bullets.eyes"




                              And a "lundefugl" in the carpet is welcoming me

                                It was very interesting to travel with Midnatsol one day. And then go directly over to a new day with her sister Trollfjord.

                                The two ships are VERY similar.

                                But on the other hand.........VERE different. And two different worlds.


                                I have to say.

                                Coming onboard Trollfjord is just like coming home.

                                First of all, I lilke this blue winter-ships colours much better than Midnatsol.

                                My mother was with me when I checked in. And also her oponion, was that Trollfjord lookes much newer than Midnatsol. Trollfjord lookes much cleaner. Sje even smells better.

                                And even my mother, who now is a passenger onboard Midnatsol, stayed onboard long enough to notice how much friendlier everything is on Trollfjord compare to Midnatsol. So she had told the resat of the family, that their next trip will be with TROLLFJORD. NOT Midnatsol.
