    Out tonight, to take pictures of the nicest moonraise I've ever seen. It's a pitty I didn't have time to adjust camera settings, as I would like to take pictures of the Moon touching the mountains. Did not work. (Note-to-self: take a class in night photography, moron!)
    Anyway, the moonraise looks more like a sunset, and from Viken farm it all looked like this

    Freistranda towards west and the harbour for private leisure crafts and other smaller boats

    Walking Bjerkestrand has turned into a "Walking south side of Frei"-thread.
    Tonight, I drove to the grosery store, and on my way home, I desided to stop by the former ferry quay at Kvitnes, and the shore over at Freistranda beach.
    The reason was of ourse clear skies, almost full Moon and expectation of some Aurora Borealis.
    I was not suited up for cold, windy photography, but had only sneakers, a jeans and my jacket...., so after a short hour out, I had no feeling in my fingers. IT WAS COLD! :-D

    Anyway, here's the view toward Gjemnessundet suspention bridge, and the remains of the old ferry quay can be seen in the foreground. (Difficult to pinpoint focus in manual)


    Reinsfjell (992 meters) to the left and Gjemnessundet bridge


    The Aurora Borealis was not expected until midnight, but two hours early...., here it appears on the north-eastern sky


    The "photographymobil" parked at Freistranda. Freikollen (629 meters) in the background


    Had to get the Big Dipper in the frame :-)

    One more red extraction exersice...., not entirely a success, as some green came along in the shadow area...

    Freifjorden in hazy condition and strong headlight


    The nearest operational farm to Viken has cows


    A faded dandelion. Remember we picked them up as childs, said 'Bye, bye grandpa'...., and blew them all away :-)




    Do you spot the otter? Looks like a small log...


    Tried to extract the red of the boat passing by, leaving all the rest in b/w

    Inside the lavvo, tent, teepee or what you call it...


    Family dog, a golden retriever. Camilla is her name...., or Stella Nautica as is her real name from her pedigree


    Nice area this




    On our walk down to the area, we passed many rowan berries


    And, Cecilia, the old milk barrel :-)

    Springtime May has passed long time ago, I guess all went well in Stuttgart and here we're back to autumn again. Time for yet another walk down to Viken farm at Bjerkestrand :-)

    The road called Bjerkestrandveien, with my home to the left on that next hilltop


    We are in the middle of September, but it looks like summer...., and I like it


    This area down by the sea belongs to Kristiansund community and is open for free use for the citizens.






    On the area there are benches and grills, provided by the community (hope that is the word for 'kommunen')

    Funny story,
    but the great part is that they actually created something rather personal together.

    Thanks Cecilia and Ralf!

    You'd better prepair for a pretty great day down there in Stuttgart Ralf. And a daughter grown into an adult just over night. Though in my speach (because, you've also written one?) I pointed out her many good years as a youngster before even thinking about being something as dull as adult :-) Wish you all the best!

    Congratulations to Vilde (and you all) from sunny Wiltshire too!!

    As I think I've mentioned elsewhere on CVF, Mrs PoloUK and Mamma PoloUK made Mrs PoloUK's bunad. That didn't make it a lot cheaper, but it kept them both quiet for months!!
