    Oh WOW Bengt! Truly an astounding image.

    It is also almost certain to get the Seagull News Reporter Photo of the Year Award ....ok ok I didn't know there was such a thing either - but seeing this there certainly should be, and you're getting it as our photographer on the spot with camera.


      Wow Bengt, that is a super-special photo. Fantastic.



        pakarang,Seagull and PoloUK, thank you so much for the comments.
        Best wishes from Bengt Domben


          The company Brim Explorer got its new explorer boat to Tromsø on friday.
          Maritime Partner AS in Ålesund has been responsible for the construction and delivery of this boat.
          The boat has an electrically driven engine, but also has a diesel engine for longer trips.
          They will carry tourists around the fjords to see whales, northern lights, etc.

          During the summer season it will be stationed in Svolvær.
          And the winter season in Tromsø.
          The boat cost 38 million norwegian kroner.

          The boat sailed out from Tromsø this morning and made a trip up to Skjervøy and back again.

            But is it practical and suitable for the tasks it is supposed to do?
            I don't know, but it looks like the passengers will have a free view in almost all directions from anywhere. (That without being exposed to the cold)

          American salvage giant Ardent gets the job of removing the wreckage of Russian trawler "Bukhta Naezdnik" in Tromsø harbor.
          The trawler sank september 26, 2019 after a major fire onboard.

            My goodness... even though the images of BRIM are excellent, that is not a beautiful vessel design. But for it's intended purpose, I'm sure it's perfectly designed. That thing is perhaps one of the strangest designs I have seen in Norway.

            Thanks for sharing the tragic image of the capsizing Russian trawler - I was watching the LIVE feed as it happened through a local Old-based media outlet.
