    Re: This is Kristiansund

    Beautiful picture of the rusty anchor
    Hmm ... there is something special about these rusty items that you see around, and they all have a story to tell

      Re: This is Kristiansund

      Yepp, rusty stuff is interesting..., specially in different sunlight, early morning or late evening light.
      Now, yesterday a big storm passed out in the ocean, and as Tuesday and Wednesday are the usual days for change of crew on board many offshore vessels, we had our quays packed with ships these two past days.
      Yesterday I placed myself at a spotterplace at Nordlandet, waiting to top it off with the incoming hurtigrute "Polarlys" at about 4:45 PM, but she sailed straight pass Kristiansund! Anyone care to know why???
      Anyway, here are some images from Tuesday in Kristiansund

      "Fugro Symphony"




      "Skandi Inspector"


      "Siem Amethyst" and a Havila vessel (could be Borg)


      Fishing vessel "Rogne"


      Packed at Storkaia.

        At my spotterplace at Nordlandet, you could (when weather permits) actually use one of the communitys benches to sit down and watch it all


        If you ever use the sundbåt from the main dock Kirklandet, you can take this means of transportation to Innlandet, Nordlandet and then disembark at the Goma stop. Then you can walk over to the klippfish and bacalao museum at Milnbrygga on the east side of the Vågen inlet.
        (If you know of the old vessel "Borgenes" and where her remains are moored..., that's the place).
        In the summer season, the sundbåt even has a stop at this museum. You see Innlandet and Freikollen in the background, and in fact also the small platform for the sundbåt.

            Yeah, we had about 20 vessels in that day, moored all around in harbour, at Vestbase, ex. Sterkoder ship yard and fishery terminal at Goma.
            At the picture quoted above, we see from left to right:
            Skandi Skolten, Far Saga, Havila Venus, Viking Queen and Olympic Hera.

                  Yes, and after that, we can go to the Nilsen Museum in the same area.
                  Click into the link below and scroll yourselves through the pages, and in particular click into 'Bilder' in the left menu. They have a serious ammount of equipment stored!!

                    Re: This is Kristiansund

                    Drove down to the new quays at Vestbase during my lunchbreak today.
                    I knew there were nothing much to see, but as I was about to drive back to work, a red danish cargo vessel came up the fjord.
                    I will spoil you and give you all my six pictures of this one, because I'm so happy most of the danish cargo vessels I see in our region are not former flat european riverboats, but nice looking classic designs.

                    Here's "Saturn" with the mountain Stemshesten in Eide and Bremsneshatten at Averøy in the background


                    A bit closer, and at this point, I honestly thought she would turn starboard to dock at where I've seen her a few times before, Bolga in Frei


                    But then, she turned to port, and headed directly for the quay I was standing when shooting my first picture of her


                    A close-up for those who like that


                    Just before docking at Vestbase


                    And finally, they reached their destination and fastened their starboard spring rope. Notice those nice lines and her good looking classic stern!!

                      That is a perfect panorama, Sterkoder!
                      Photo 3…that sky, those elegant lines of Saturn…delightful.
                      So glad she came to meet you! Your lunch breaks are really something!

                        Yepp..., some days there are a lot to see, some days there are nothing. The latter was also the case Friday, but then, in a matter of ten minutes, "Saturn" came and made my day.
                        I'm so fortunate to have my job with Swire, as the lunch breaks are a great deal of fun itself, and if there are something special along the docks or the lunch break is quiet and ordinary for any reason, I'm just a one minute drive away from all of the Vestbase 9 docking sites, where I usually have between 15 to 20 minutes to spend after my own meal.

                          You have created a wonderful shot based on my opinion and as many as three factors!

                              Above Kristiansund at 8:30 this Wednesday morning were the most beautiful clouds I've seen for a long time.
                              Created by very strong south-easterly winds at altitude, this is what it all looked like from the window at work.
                              I have no additional comments, just posting them all...
