Last shot. Says something of my nerdiness. 18:24. the train left for my hometown. One hour until the next train. Peter wessel leaves 19:00 sharp. The wind picks up. I am only wearing a t-shirt.
The train leaves. I stay. I wanted this shot so bad. Nerd? Yes. Proud of it? Yes. I take pictures of all sorts of crap, but when i get something like this, i like too take a few. One last thing! Here are the "picture" of the new vessels thats about too trade the larvik-fredrikshavn route, on whom Peter Wessel trades today.
The new... Petter.

Way to take one for the team....the worldwide shipspotter's team, that is..

Great shot. Great photography is partially about being in the right place at the right time but there is also a lot to be said for waiting in the right place for the right time.

Good evening Kent and thanx alot for your very kind words. Now i feel a little stupid, i did not mean too fish for any compliments or comments. Just described a day... At the office, sort of speak!
Because of the very limited chanses i have too shoot some picture, i will try too go the extra mile, in a way. Once again, thanx very very much for the comment.

Some people are just committed to taking photos, others are defiant, you fall in the latter catergory, lets hope you don't get a cold. thanks for sharing and putting up with the cool weather.

Tusen takk for hyggelig kommentar. Jeg har ikke så mange muligheter til å få tatt så mange kule bilder, så jeg må holde ut med det jeg har, hehe...
