        Thanks for all your sunny, rainy, snowy photographies

        In august 2008, I was on board MV Grigoriy Mikheev to sail from Spitsbergen to N-E Greenland when we met the old lady as she was sailing into Magdelenefjorden at 7:30 am

          Beautiful!! And the light and the background is amazing. The high mountains.

          Fun to see pictures from Svalbard, Linray. It seems you were onboard just after I left. I worked onboard until july.
          Wasn't Svalbard amazing? It's like a little world of it's own, far away

            I went into town today to capture one vessel which has run away from me each time I could have a chanse to take a picture.
            This was "Stril Orion", but as you might understand, I post those pictures under its right thread.
            Here is todays southbound hurtigrute arriving Kristiansund, the grand old lady "Nordstjernen".
            This might be my last daytime pictures of her?

              Stril Orion and dear NX in the same photo makes rather an effective image in this light and time of day actually.

              Aren’t you going to negotiate an hour off work to see her on her last trip as hurtigrute on 21 March?

                Oh, Wednesday 21st March, is that so...... I was not 100% sure of when her last visit would be, but thanks!
                Since I get off work at 1600, I don't think I need much negotiating. Southbound arrive 16:15 when on time, but they never are, so....

                    So great to see all the new images of the old star added to this thread.... especially those "exotic" shots from up north!

                    PS: Your Captain will join the Nordstjernen from Trondheim to Rørvik this coming Monday.... for a farewell voyage. But, keep it a secret so there won't be anyone trying to stalk me...

                      My announced trip with the Star from Molde to Kristiansund Sunday evening went down the drain today.
                      Anyway, I'm not crying...., I 'll try to make more of the last visit here in KSU 21st March.

                        You could VERY easily have tricked the stalkers, going off like that in the middle of a work fortnight!?!?!

                        And talking of work fortnights, will you be taking a photo of NX from the ferry on Wednesday 21 March, as she heads southbound for the last time as a hurtigrute?

                          Just back from a trip on MS Nordstjernen, amazing trip and amazing crew! To save a lot of copying and pasting, here is a link to my blog with 100+ photos. A special thanks to KongHarald for the fantastic information she shared between Risoyhavn and the stop.

                            Some great photos Graeme - glad you had a good time.

                            Entertained by the fact that you thought that Vardø was like a ghost town - I'm saying nothing, Mrs PoloUK would hit me if I did!!

                            By the way is KongHarald our dear HaraldJarl but promoted?

                                There she goes!
