    Leaving Florø, 4. August



    Comment


      Another walk from the camping site to the harbour in the night. There I found a sign expected arrival at 3 a.m. So I was more than one hour to early, but after walking 3 kilometers I thought I should wait. Some lights were too strong...

        Some great shots Eilun, thank you so very much for sharing!

            I loved your recent photos of Nordstjernen, Eilun. So nice to see her passing Munkholmen after my having been to Munkholmen so recently, but it has been over a year now since I have been aboard NX . . .
            The night shots are superb, a worthwhile night walk (and wait) indeed.

              Absolutely love that last photo of NX going under the bridge!

              Just working out where you were standing to take this, and remind me Bengt what lens would it have been you were using?

                Bengt, you are doing magic with your camera! Absolute magic!

                  Ah so you had walked out there, that explains everything! I had not been able to work out any place “on shore” so to speak that would have given that angle with unobstructed view, especially with more restricted access between the hurtigrute quay and the Rica Hotel than used to be the case. Though along that quay would be twice the distance away from the bridge when you come to look at it on a map-view, hence the added question about your lens.

                  Big thank you. I love these sort of CV adventures we have –not just admiring a stunning photo, but it leading to all sorts of virtual walks in the city and “getting out a map” and recollecting visits made and photos taken. . . AND admiring dear NX of course!

                    Thank you, Eilun and Asimut, for these pictures of Nordstjernen. What grace is there, compared to the "in your face", top heavy aspect of the modern fleet. I'm being very damning in that latter remark and it won't be popular, but it is what I feel.

                      I'm still amazed that, in Norway, we have a 54 year old passenger ship still in service.

                        Same here, Jan Olav, and delighted. The low, sleek lines of the older ships perfectly epitomise movement as compared to the modern ones - it is like comparing an arrow to a cannon ball.

                            Nice pictures talfh! Fine to see soo many passengers aboard. The 4th picture together with the HSC is impressing. How many ship generations are between these two....?

                              Superb pictures.
                              Could she be in the process of having her crane checked following the removal of Lofoten's?

                                She does look very sad with the funnel so dark: hopefully, they just forgot to turn on the funnel spot light.
