    Re: This is Kristiansund

    WAOW.... I don't think I have ever seen clouds like that. EVER!

    At the same time as they are really beautiful, they are also having a spooky edge to them. Like an omen of bad times to come...

      Steinar Melby from Nettstudio AS has made a fenomenal panorama picture of Kristiansund havn taken from Nordlandet and Stormvarselet.
      The panorama is made of 600 pictures of 5 gigapixel each. You can move around in it and zoom like never before and still get clear images.

      Click into the link below and move around in Kristiansund harbopur area.

        What fantastic clouds- what time was sunrise? I'm trying to think how they looked so wonderfully lit?

          Well dear Sterkoder, what can I say…you took some Skyscapes! You were ready to capture the moment...totally spectacularly stunning.
          Like pakarang I am experiencing a “spooky edge” to such beauty…and I think it is because these clouds resemble fingers reaching down….

            In Kristiansund today, we had a visit from...., well...., personally I think it looks like a french flag back there.
            The vessel had an old english classic look too me, her name is "Nirrivik" and she will not be hard to spot at sea




            When leaving the docks to go back to my car, I just spotted this log floating around near a boat. Couldn't resist to take a couple of pictures...


            Close to my home is Frei church and Freikollen at just over 600 meters in the background

                      A few Kristiansund photos from Summer 2010 to add to the collection. A beautiful place!! Have tried to put the more unusual ones in here.

                      I've never been anywhere with such attractive drain covers!!



                      Some beautiful textures on the side of one of the ships parked in the middle of town.



                      A local - she didn't say much to us.



                      And the local mass transit system. Apologies Sterkoder - I've managed to remove your 'S' - but I didn't realise the significance when I was there!!

                      Cheers,

                      Mark.

                        A few more K'sund from summer 2010 - boats this time.





                        Coming off the berth in the high street - looks like he'd run out of coins for the parking meter!



                        The bus arriving to take us to Molde.



                        Just loved the riot of colours on Ocean Endeavour.



                        On the way south.

                          This video is not exactly from Kristiansund, but it start out at the city airport.
                          New 'brushes' and pilots in our local aeroclub has mounted a camera under the port wing of our plane, a Piper PA-28-181 Cherokee Archer II, reg. LN-NPO.
                          I'm more or less out of the business now, as the cost of flying around with a PPL is rocketing sky high.
                          I miss flying around alone up there, but not at any cost.

                          Therefore it's nice to se such videos as this.
                          The trip start at Kristiansund airport, flying east via Solheimsundet to the island Smøla with Norways largest windmill park.

                            Sterkoder - forgive my ignorance, but what is the significance of the lady that appears in picture 3 and on the manhole cover photo in Post 630? I'm sure I'm the only one that doesn't know!!

                              Kristiansund is known for its trade with 'klippfisk' (cod salted and dried on different rocks around the city).
                              This is what made the wealth of the city, and the cleaning and spreading of the klippfisk on those rocks, the handling of the fish in general at that stadium, was very much the responsibility of women.
                              Therefore we say that it was these women who made our wealth, and a woman handling klippfisk were called a 'klippfiskkjerring'. (Klippfish woman).
                              The statue (also pictured on those manhole lids) was erected to honor these ladies.

                              Here you can see 'klippfiskkjerringer' in work with spreading cod to sun- and wind dry on the rocks in the city


                              In the process of finding a picture as the one above, I also stumbled over an old post card from Kristiansund

                                Fantastic - thanks for that. Nice story.

                                Being married to a Norwegian lady I can certainly believe that the girls were the ones that made everything happen!!!
