          Thanks folks...!

          At that time I was just out from a rather thorough eye-check at the specialist in the same building as the Harbour authority at the hurtigruten quay...., and my eyes were running in water/tears so that I had difficulty seeing anything.
          The doctor had used drops so that my pupils could be compared to f/1.1 (Unable to contract of course)

          Anyway, this was my second picture after I had my Pentax de-dusted, and in fact I'm rather happy with it myself, the image.
          Had to decide in a hurry where to stand though, as I had two alternatives......, 300 meters apart.

          As a photographer I don't know if I'm particularly happy with razor sharp sunlight, but it sure is very nice to have some light back in the afternoon.

            So good to see you have your camera back in action. And what better than to take Lofoten heading south to meet our Sarnia in Bergen today!
            That little touch of sun on the top of the mountain completes this lovely golden moment image.

              Yes, but that sunlight is at the very right position in your picture. In pictures of that kind (low sunlight at a ships hull) there are often very bright reflections spoiling all details, but giving a great effect. I like you image very much because it gives both. The composition could be a bit better, but considering you adventure at the eye specialist it's very understandable. Nice shot!

                Yesterday Lofoten was visiting Ålesund and i was onboard to take some pictures of her. This particular day it was a arrangement going on in the city about maritime education, so there was a lot of ships around the city that was open for visitors.Lofoten had stands with people from the maritime school, informing about different ways to get your maritime education.
                A lot of people was onboard, i sat down in the cafeteria with a cup of hot chocolate before i wandered around taking som pictures.

                            I was there only for a little more than a hour,due to limited time. I did not see him(and i dont know how he looks like)maybe he was ashore, walking in the beautiful winter weather we have nowadays.I wish him a great voyage, i`m sure he will be satisfied.

                              Thank you for these wonderful images of Lofoten! This is the manouver handle witch controls the pitch of the propeller directly from the bridge. The engine telegraph (not visible in this photo) is a communication tool between the bridge and the engine room and is also in use to let the engineers know when to be stand by. It can also be used for manouvering in case the manouver handle does not work. In that case, the engineers need to do the actual manouvering from the engine room based on orders from the bridge via the telegraph.
