    "Kaya" this morning a few minutes before she lifted her anchor and set course for Dunkerque.

    I subscribe to a daily newsletter from Maasmondmaritime, which arrives in PDF-format in my e-mail every day. They have a lot of images and some stories every day.

    But, I find these images from Tromsø way much more interesting, maybe because they are in Norwegian waters. I don't know.

    The quality of images here is also making them so interesting and I continuously try to improve my own skills to match this quality. Thank you for sharing and inspiring!

    Yeah, as an Icelandic company, it's really strange they never sail to their own country.

    Thanks for the images of EIMSKIP. I got a little curious again, and found this informative chart over their routes.

    I see them quite often up here in Trondheim too, even though we are not actually not on their map.

    What I wonder about is this: they sail along the Norwegian coast, all the way to Murmansk actually... but I don't think they have a single person with Norwegian citizenship on board. Right?

    A familiar vessel for many people along the coast of Norway, the general cargo vessel VARGØY arriving at Ila pier back in October of 2017:

    Great new additions from both of you.

    Interesting to see these images, after all I'm a seaman. As ombugge also noticed, the TONNY does indeed have a little bit strange design.

    My curiosity killed me and I had to look her up... she was actually built in 1942!

    She looks like an old whaler twice removed. (??)

    Congratulations on your new lens, Svein
    It looks like your new 450mm lens gives great pictures.

    I grew up just meters away from Sterkoder Mek. in Kristiansund, and before "everything" became dangerous for kids (before EU, I guess), the ship yard were the playground for us.
    No fences, no security, we climbed the ships in production and we were captains, engineers, deckhands and what not. Great childhood!
    Anyway, remember JOHAN RUUD, all the way back when the vessel was just a small plate of steel (haha).
Working...
