    Not a problem at all when at sealevel, but on that 994 meters high Reinsfjell, the snow comes lower and lower by the days.

        Hahahaha...., thank you, Jan-Olav!!! I guess I'll do it for free just because I love my city

        The United Nations have something they call "One day on Earth", where videophotographers all over the world make a film from their home place on the 10th October.
        Here is the contribution from Kristiansund, made by a Mr. Teige.
        (I guess you will know of several places in the video, from looking at my pictures over the years)

            Now, Kristiansund Harbour Authorities just released their new web-pages.
            They are still in a construction mode, in a way..., but I belive these new pages are good on their way to better
            (They have also "stolen" a picture from me, the "Saga Rose" in the cruise-section).

            A new and great (when fully loaded and the broadband works perfect) feature is the "Harbourmovie 2010".
            Please click on the link and sit in on a nice helicopter flight over my fantastic city and region:

              You should send them a bill.... 1500 NOK for the picture and 2000 for something I would call "tort and svie"....

                Nice moon here tonight. Images taken from my home towards the island of Tustna (white mountains) east of Kristiansund.

                    I miss summer too. When I took those pictures, it was just as cold as in Molde last week, and I had to sit in my car to take them.
                    The wind in addition made it so cold that I felt numb in my fingers.

                      I have started feeling numb in my fingers every morning since the cold-periode started... maybe it's a sign that I should move to warmer climates?

                        Yes, I have that in my thoughts, so to say...
                        Have you ever sent such a bill, or anyone else?? If so, what's your experience with that??

                        For the sake of the future (if I need to co-operate with the port authority for whatever reason), can I make things "difficult" between us by sending them a bill??

                          A delicate situation... yes, I agree. But I would let them know, in a polite way, that using images without proper accreditation is not the way to do it.

                          For your future connections with the port, it would be adviasable to maybe not send them a claim, but as I mentioned, I would let them know I was disappointed.

                          I have sent claims like this before, sometimes I get paid, sometimes, they remove the images from their server, and once, I got a formal letter of apology.

                              A fantastic movie made by young Haakon Visnes and his R/C-aircraft mounted camera again!!!
                              This time low-flying over an icy Rensvik Lake just a few km's south of Kristiansund.
                              Turn up the volume for the norwegian group Röyksopp with their beautiful tune 'Poor Leno', turn to full screen and if you don't have a quick line/band, turn off the HD by clicking the blue HD letters next to the full screen and volume control in the movie lower right corner.

                              When finished, please also have a look at his movie 'Winter', filmed when he flew his model aircraft over my part of the world, south side of Frei. In this film he fly over the local model aircraft airport and shooting range four km's west of my home, where you see the highest point in Kristiansund (Freikollen 629 meters) in many of the frames. The final seconds of the movie show you the view from about 600 meters directly south towards Gjemnessundet suspension bridge and Reinsfjell.
                              Fantastic movies from Mr. Visnes:

                              http://www.vimeo.com/17093212

                              Tell me what you think, isn't Mr. Visnes a brilliant moviemaker??

                                Impressing! Does he use the camera picture also for steering or is the movie a surprise after the landing?
