    Re: ::: Lofoten :::

    I’ve been following Lofoten on the webcams these last few days.
    Here’s a view I saved last Tuesday:





    …and right now, here in Havřysund.
    I wonder if our CVF member Sarnia is one of those people who have gone ashore!

        Actually, I didn't go ashore in Havřysund!

        It was so nice to be back on board this old lady. I had a great trip, which ended rather hastily when, instead of coming off in Svolvaer, we had to leave the ship in Sortland. Because of upcoming bad weather in the Vestford on the 11th , the Captain decided to go directly from Sortland to Bodř to avoid the worst of the wind (and I noticed on MarineTraffic that they skipped Bodř as well, I'm not sure why). I will sort out my many pictures and post some more here shortly!

                A very relaxed atmosphere.

                Look, it is possible to see a normal situation, without all this farewell or sunset stuff.



                I love this photos. Thank you for climbing on the hill to please us!

                  I just love those few colors stands out in your pictures. Grey weather is definetely understated.

                    Ah that amazing view from the top of the hill again! The thing is that you have captured it so – what shall I say – eloquently. Only in such weather and against the grey would one be so aware of the colours of the vegetation, and how they are matching the reds and ochre yellows of the buildings.

                    A like how the soft line of the horizon is visible… goodness I so admire you getting the exposure right to see that gradation of sea and sky. I doubt I’d have managed that after the exertions on the climb! I am wondering if I would have considered cropping the top of the frame later though… perhaps leaving 2cm of sky? …to emphasise that horizon, and also the sinuous line of the rocks and breakwater across the width of the picture.

                        Here are some pictures taken in Stamsund on March 6th.













                        I have also updated my blog on this trip but sorting through all the pictures is a slow process (I hope it's not inappropriate to refer to my blog, would it be better to post some of the story here?).

                          How can something in a snowfall come out so crisp and clear? Great work Bengt!

                              Thank you for you appreciation Yves!
                              Yes I mentioned on this thread (message #583) that the text was available in English as well.
                              I have added more days but I still have pictures to sort so the story is not yet finished!

                                "Lofoten" heading north this evening in snow showers.
                                I know it's May 1st today, but this it spring in these parts of the country right now.
                                Amazing picture! Is that in Tromso? Such a wintery atmosphere, is it usual for that time of year? My first trip on board MS Lofoten was on late April (2006) and it felt very much like spring. But I think winter has been slow to come this year, so maybe spring is a bit delayed as well?
