    Re: ::: Trollfjord :::

    In case of bad weather the Hurtigruten ships can't risk being stuck at smaller ports without a major airport (their guests have to get home even if the ships can't reach Kirkenes in time).

      That is the compromise we have to face, since it is both now: a postship and a cruise liner.

        Inspired by Patrick’s great photo of Nordlys seen from Cabin 401 on Trollfjord, I’ve looked out a couple of photos that I don’t think were posted at the time when I was in the very same cabin in February 2010! As you know I normally like Deck 6, but on this occasion I was on an arrangement with a university group. I was pleased to have been allocated such an unusual cabin in the bow. Here’s my porthole view of Tromsø.



        It is also worth noting that this is a puffin carpet cabin, a much-discussed and admired design here and in Midnatsol’s thread!

          Yep - so was I! We had a 'through the round window' cabin on Finnmarken a long time ago! I remember being very disappointed when we first found we'd got that cabin - and then realising how lucky we were when lulled to sleep every night by the sound of the water lapping up on the bow.

          Whilst I was looking to see which photos I'd got that were similar to Patrick's I found two Trollfjord ones that I didn't remember I had.

          So, Trollfjord, old livery, old funnel - oh, and old camera. September 2004.

                Do they have a service station for rafts in Honningsvåg?

                    A lot of ropes.
                    I haven't noticed that light-rig in the bow before. I wonder what the main usage is for that one?

                        What a funny perspective on #436/1, I think that captain might have a new lens-toy?

                          Dear friends,

                          My second request tonight.... does anyone have some GOOD photos of the original Harald Jarl paintings that are located on board Trollfjord?

                          Good images which I could be permitted to use in the Harald Jarl story on the main page?

                            I certainly have some photos of those paintings, but whether they are any GOOD is much less certain! Anyway I will look them out tomorrow morning (I'm not at the main computer right now)

                              Sorry, no pictures on the paintings themselves. I have three pics of the room though.

                                Photographing the wonderful paintings of of Kaare Espolin Johnsen that were moved from Harald Jarl to Trollfjord is remarkably difficult. The way one perceives them seems to vary with time of day, light and season in an almost magical way which seems to transcend technical discussions of colour and white balance and such like. Reflections, and that some of them are curved into the corners of the room add to the challenge, whilst on a dark evening the effect of the strips of individual lighting above the paintings totally change their look and tone. I almost feel I don’t really know how they should look, but perhaps that is part of what makes them so special!

                                So first just a few photos to illustrate what one is up against in daring to capture these masterpieces!
