    Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

    Seems to have been a lovely day in Reine.
    A lot of RIB-boats on foredeck.

      Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

      I am so sad that I will not be able to sail with this delightful old lady... I heard rumors last year that both her and the Lofoten would be pulled out of the Hurtigruten line, so we booked a trip on the Lofoten for March 2012, and it turned out that these rumors were only true for Nordstjernen... I looked into the return voyage from Spitzbergen in August, but it is not possible (not enough time, not enough money, don't we all have the same problems!

      I'd like to share some pictures of her, which were taken on December 24th 2010, in Trondheim (I was on board the Polarlys). The weather was very cold (-13°C) and the sea was smoking. The morning lights were so delicate, it was a beautiful moment.

                Hi Sarnia - those are all fantastic, but there's something really special about #828/4.

                Put those with Carina's photos in #822 and you've got a stunning record of Nordstjernen in the summer and the winter.
                Cheers,

                Mark.

                  Great additions Henrik & Sarnia,
                  really nice mood you've captured there.

                  Henrik, there should almost certainly have been more foum people around during 7-13th?

                    Henrik - someone's stolen the mountains!! Think the weather was less than perfect for you that day!
                    Cheers,

                      Tommi, Don't know - I wasn't wearing the Captains Voyage hat...

                      PoloUK, Intense snowfall only 30 seconds later. To be honest, I prefer shooting in "bad" weather. I like a bit of drama in the images.

                        That is so beautiful! One of the best shots of this ship, that I have ever seen!

                          Now that's a moody one. I also find less good weather quite inspiring, it often brings in so much more feeling into the pictures. Or to be honest, I prefer bad weather as long as I don't need to be freezing...

                            Henrik - this pic of NX in a snowstorm is exactly what i've been yearning for re the oldships at that place. But alas, never had a chance!

                            Your pic is unique -about the right ship in the right weather conditions, which don't occur more than I'd say once (or max twice) every year. And I tell you, even living in Honningsvåg I would have waite for this very shot for years!!! Lucky you, thanks ever so much!!!

                              During my trip from Bergen to Svolvær on board MS Nordstjernen in march 2008 :

                              1 Ålesund just after a shower

                                Thanks! To me, this is the essence of Hurtigruten. Hard working ships that serve the coast in all weather conditions.
