        Among other things you perform very well, you could also be a top notch postcard-maker!!!
        Those images of the Star from your position 'in the bushes' are awesome!!!

          When I edited them, they did in fact remind me of postcards shot 20 years ago by To Foto in Harstad.

            Exactly!!!
            I had the same feeling with image 4/605...., but that reminded me of an illustration to a hurtigruten book from the early to mid 1960s. Wonderful!!

              I had the same impression. It reminded me of something Ralf
              said last year
              about one of my “skyscape” photos of the Forth road bridge.

              Sometimes it is not easy to pinpoint exactly what conveys such a “period” impression, but these Nordstjernen images are so of that style and it is so appropriate for the age of the ship. Wonderful images from both the days.

              I’d have loved to have spied pakarang peeping through the bushes from up there! 608/1 just makes me feel both inadequate and inspired at the same time…now if I got out of focus leaves in my photo it would just look like a mistake with zero merit and would be instantly deleted, but somehow pakarang’s looks marvellous and says so much to me…that is indeed truly art and creativity. Ummmmm -the modest master

                The pic with the out-of-focus foliage is very special. It's like she dashes forward, it's a lot of movement in that pic. Glad you posted it! Perfectionists can take a hike.

                Also, I was cringing from the sight of her rusty hull. BUT, THEN I REMEMBERED pics of the other oldships when they were in service. Man, did their hulls look beaten with rust everywhere.

                So she's no worse off regarding care/grooming than she was in "de olden days". Comforting.

                    Great image of Nordstjernen in Tromsø on May 14th.... the light is truly very special: very mystical, yet also very romantic.

                    Great captures from Ålesund as well, Joakim.

                          Awesome images indeed... absolutely awesome.

                          PS: Does anyone remember when the gangway on the shelter deck was removed? It must at least have been 25 years ago... I don't think I have ever seen any photograph where the short gangway is still there.

                              Superb shots Tom!

                              In a way, all these images are timeless. Like a view from the yesteryears of Hurtigruten.

                              The strange is that the first thing I noticed in these latest photographs, was the now RED horn in the funnel....
