Thank you Henk,
I am really glad you liked the photo.
For me it was a very cold feeling as it was taken the same day as I arrived back to work from Thailand :-)

Indeed a very nice shot Geir. By looking at it, one can feel how it is to be there at the time. Marvelous feeling in a photo!

Thank you Derek,
It is only about one hours time it is possible to take photos up here at this time of year, otherwise it is to dark.

Superb photo Geir :)

Hi Peter,
Thank you for your nice comment.
I think they are waiting for spear parts that maybe are not to easy to get for an nearly 40 year old Mitsubishi engine but hopefully she will be underway again soon.

Hello geir
A very atmospheric shot indeed , and I hope they can repair the engines
I remember her as the rora head bringing coal in to Birkenhead in the early 1980s
Keep the photo coming geir
