    So great to hear that you used your drone and got some great pictures.

    I haven't had the problem with my batteries (drone or phone), even when flying in -12 degrees. There is a shorter time available yes, but I never take off with less than full battery.

    The stupid thing with drone- and iPhone batteries, is that they don't stand cold weather at all.
    Thought I would try my drone again today, but after three minutes, my iPhone was down to 1% battery and after taking five pictures, I got the low battery alarm on the drone.
    To fly a drone will be a summer activity, I belive.

    Anyway, the pilot lives in the yellow house there, with the red Toyota spotter-mobile outside
    Remember the coffee and ice cream on the terrace there, Cecilia? :-)
    The fjord you see there in the background is the only way in and out of Sunndalsøra for larger ships, so as you see I live close to the ship lane, and Freifjorden 1 Anchorage

    Nice image and composition of the dock houses: the image takes me back to warmer summer memories from the small-boats harbour at Sundalsøra.

    My aunt and uncle had one of those big wooden boats (not fishing, but pleasure craft). They used to spend their winters down by these docks getting the boat ready for summer, all throughout the winter.

    I have always wondered what happened to the boat, after they had to sell it onwards. It was so extremely well kept. GUNN KARIN was the name of the boat, as far as I remember.

    Great photos, Svein. Hopefully by 1620 tomorrow I will be back in Norway and on the Lofoten once more....

    It's time walking Bjerkestrand again.
    Today, I dressed for cold weather, put on my military M77 boots, but forgot my crampons...., and so I slipped on the ice. Me and the camera fell kind of hard on the path, but I'm still hole and ok.
    The Pentax is built like a Sherman tank from WW2, so even if it was first to hit ground, all the pictures here are taken with the robust Pentax. Lucky me.

    Must have been quite relaxing to be in a boat on the fjord today.

    Walked in my neighbourhood in pouring rain today. But as long as I got a weathersealed Pentax, rain is no problem.
    Just a few hundred meters from my home we have a few boathouses, and one real old one made of timber placed on rocks.

    That waterwheel once drove a farm saw. This picture is taken without a tri-pod, handheld on f/6.3, shutter 1/3 seconds and ISO100

    About those "ice scoops" or as they are, hay bale (as Google translate 'høyball'):
    When the farmers wrapped the hay in white plastic, it was only that..., plastic, costing money.
    Then the company selling it got an idea: why not colour the plastic and give some of the income to research on cancer? So now a prosentage of the sale of plastic wrapping goes to cancer research, pink indicates the farmer support research on women breast cancer and blue that they support research on mens protaste cancer.

    Oh yes, be sure I do, Sigve! :-) I'm drewling over it, but there are still too few options in lenses. Canon- and Nikon-people are blind to Richo-Pentax (of course), but one gets very good value for the money when buying a K-1.
    I worked in the oilbusiness before, and since May I've been on the unemployment list of NAV, so my finances are limited at the moment.
    Therefore a K-1 is not a first priority of what I can use money on here ;-)

    That started already last year in Sweden. Here we have them to collect money to fight some cancer type that only affects women. This year I've also seen blue ones, I guess that's for us men then...
