    This is Kristiansund

    http://captainsvoyage.7.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=515

    Continuing from our old forum the thread containing pictures, info and other things about Kristiansund.

    Shot a couple of pictures in Vågen and from Varden today.
    Here's one from Varden, with Freikollen (629 m.) nearest and Reinsfjell (920 m.) covered in snow in the background


    Another one from Varden overlooking the harbour and city towards south-east


    Here's one from Vågen, with the pilot-boat in the foreground

    Anywho, live webcams or not...., today we saw a very high tide here in Kristiansund. Well, not only here, but along the very coast of Norway.

    At normal high tide, the surface is over one meter lower

    At Mellemværftet old ship yard, the sea came several meters up on shore and over the path where one walks from let's say Atlanten Camping to town

    The wooden quay was under the sea surface

    There's also a new camera mounted at the City Hall now, viewing the Pier, City Hall Square, harbor and the beautiful scooner IDEAL (when she's in town)

    Kulturfabrikken (Factory for culture) and the city scene, opened this fall, so it's a brand new arena for concerts and music of all sorts. And other things that might need a large scene and public area.

    Anyway, a team of three (NEAS (our local electricity provider), StreamBird (video/camera) and Quality Grand Hotel, have made it possible for live stream from Kristiansund harbor in HD quality.
    Don't know it the camera change angle, but when I checked in, it was pointing toward Markussundet inlet and the area where all the cruise ships come and go, and from time to time, the hurtigrutes go out, mostly on their southbound sailing.

    Wonderful pictures. And even if it is dark, i could follow your steps in my mind. The Kulturfabrikken is new to me and i think, they have found a great place for it!

    Even though CVF (and I don't know why) make my pictures out of focus (guess we've discussed this before), I'll post a few more.

    After a long time since deliberately going out to take photos, yesterday evening came with an opportunity I could not resist.

    I started down by the sundbåt docking at Nordlandet, for you familiar with the city, it's beneath the "Hollywood-sign" saying KRISTIANSUND right now.

    For just a couple of years ago, this was a stinking fishfarm foodpellets factory. Today, it's a factory for culture, opened this summer with many concerts and other arrangements since then

    Beautiful Sterkoder, beautiful --- both the city, the morning and the two ships, one of which I have served on both as a Captain and a Chief Officer.

    Oh i like #1649/1, how often do we have the opportunity to see three ships with round sterns on a harbour picture today. This is really nostagic.

    The old ferries have been a saviour many a time... they don't build ferries like that anymore. She is not a beauty in the right sense of the word, but she is ..... ehhh... charming(?).

    ohhh.... my helicopters have arrived! Not!

    You have a beautiful city, Sterkoder, it will always have a special place in our hearts.

    I must say, Hjelm Waage is a beauty. Such a classical and well proportioned shape. The perfect rescue vessel and private yacht, or whatever you wish to use it as.
