    We've moved a bit away from Bjerkestrand..., but we're still on the beautiful south side of the island Frei in Kristiansund.
    And what do you know..., it's almost 15 years since our daughter Vilde was born and babtised. Today it was time for her confirmation to the babtism, and together with family and friends
    she (and of course we as proud parents) celebrated it all. I cot her permission to post this picture to friends at CVF, so here's the proud fathers daughter :-)

    The most beautiful sunset here earlier this evening. This is the colours in the opposite direction...., from Viken farm towards Tustna in north-east

    Thank you!
    And you know what...., Venus is left there by intention...., as I could not get myself to cut it away.
    The moon is very hard to take a picture of, but as dean Martin say; -"When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie..., it's amore" :-D

    In that first one of #265 you have captured the moon as few people manage to do - splendid, Svein. While in the other three you have also caught Venus in each image, a small speck in a vast scene, and something that no-one seems to have noticed! I think that of those three I love the second one most. The view through to the snowy mountains in the background gives such depth, while the foreground detail is clear without dominating the scene, even though the moonbeam on the rocks immediately draws the eye. You also caught the small boat as if in a spotlight!
    Going a little further back, #259 is, for me, superb, an adjective I have always used sparingly, but find it necessary in many of your photos, Svein.

    To me the light on the foreshore in #265/3 is what is special.

    That's the hard part....

    Thanks for comments and tips folks!! :-)
    Yes, I'm fairly satisfied...., but I would like the moon to be a bit less bright in the blue hour images.
    But then it would destroy the landskape exposure....., at least at the level of knowledge I have at this point.
    I discovered that my tripod top was loose, but sinse I had nothing in my pockets to tighten the screw with...., I prayed for the light wind to keep away from me.
    Also broke my tripod..., so I was lucky to get pictures at all :-)
    (But the experience of being out in the nature in such conditions are worth a smile anyway).

    A good try, Sterkoder! The moon is one of the most difficult motives you can think of. After 50 years in the game, I still have not taken a satisfactory picture of the moon! So keep trying! (There is an app, that can tell you when and where it will rise, based on Google Maps, so you can plan your shot).

    Not bad at all. I guess you're correct regarding the timing with the end of the blue hour, it would probably have been easier to get "richer" exposures some 15-30 minutes earlier.
    1 & 2 are my favorites in this series.

    After my one hour training session today, I drove back home and suddenly saw this moon over Viken farm again. Had to stop....


    I guess I was in the latest part of the blue hour, so I struggled a bit to get the moon right. I was not particularly lucky, but anyway....




    The lights in Kvisvik are visible across the fjord. This was the place for the ferry connection northbound from Kristiansund before Krifast mainland connection opened in 1992.
    The car ferry stretch Kvalvåg - Kvisvik were operated by ferry TINGVOLL, among others

    Thanks my friend! You know, when I stopped at Viken that day, I was really on my way to a carpenters meeting due to the renovation we do on our house.
    The meeting also had to include my better half, who was delayed by 15 minutes.
    I thought, why not do something meaningful in those 15 minutes, so I grabbed my camera and run around at Viken farm, which is only a 10 minutes walk from my house anyway.
    The monkfish jaw was almost left unseen in the vegetation, but you know...., my eyesight and motif scanning capacity is ok for my use, so....

    And as I linked to him in another thread, I must say I've learned A LOT from the photography videos of Mike Browne at Photographycourses.biz.
    There are a short video for any thing you could ever need to know about in photography.

    Mr. Sterkoder - I must say, you keep on impressing with your details, your images and the overall selection of viewpoints.

    You have a great talent, not only with pencils but also with your camera!

    Loved in particular the close up of the tooth/jaw on the grass - don't really know why, but it stopped me dead in the tracks.
