      Some pics of “The North Star” (copied from old forum) to get you into x-mas mood:

      Christmas -07, in Finnsnes (less snow as on this year’s Lofoten webcam-pic):


      Christmas-07 close-up of ship’s Christmas star, in Havøysund:


      Christmas -07 in Honningsvåg, in the weird blue winter light:


      Christmas -07 in Kirkenes (ah’ do looove winter lighting):


      Dunno if another Christmas trip may be possible, but if so I’ll need a camera with larger sensor!

        The image from Christmas -07 in Honningsvåg, in the weird blue winter light, is quite simply stunning. The blue light and the Christmas decoration on board is so ... how should I say it... romantic.

          A bit outdated (December 1st), but a man fell over board from Nordstjernen outside Hammerfest and a large recovery operation was undertaken.

          The article sheds no light on the outcome of the incident, whether the person was found and recovered.

                I noticed that as well. They may have switched it off for some reason because when she was alongside, it was lit.

                  Understand....

                  The books, rules and regs go for white top lanternes, red port and green starboard with white stern light.....

                  No room for a little 50 lux Christmas star there....

                      I love this one...the---mist??

                      Maybe because I just watched the original (1933) version of King Kong, but this photo reminds me of the ship in the movie...... but in COLOR!!!!

                        The 'dust' you see is actually light snow being caught in the strong wind we occasionally have here on the coast tonight. Cold breezes from the north and tons of snow the last couple of days.... it was nice getting home to a warm cup of hot chocolate and watch her pass my windows an hour or so later.

                          Very mysterious and romantic (well, I think- I miss watching through a big bay window--the snow falling and swirling around while I'm warm and toasty inside. But that was long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away..the clouds coming in to Middle-Of-Nowhere right now LOOK like snow clouds, but it's presently 74f/23c right now...no snow in the forecast....
