Yeah, i admit it without a hesitation. Perhaps i aint the sharpest knife in the drawer. Saw that the ALA was due in tønsberg today, looked her up and found this sweet oldtimer. What else to do?
Except for the heavy wind, the fog and the rain? It would have been nice to stay at home, eat a nice breakfast and...
No. Go to Tønsberg! Shoot some pictures in the storm!
Ah mein gott.

Don't bother! There can't be too many good photos even of the same ship... ALL THE SOAKING WET SHALL NOT BE IN VAIN says the Lord.:-D
You got a mac? I should have been wiser when I bought my pc. Windows sucks!
And thanks, have a nice week, too!

Hello my friend, had some headache adding ram and more hd to my mac tonight...
Now i am back!
I went for a walk earlier today, shot the color viking again, maybe i will upload. Have uploaded to much of her, hehe! It blew storm, and i got soaking wet. No big deal! Wish you a good week!

Well, SUNday here began quite promising, but then... My fingers were nearly stiff when I was going home though we got at least 8-10°C today.
I like this one very much. Spotted her by pure accident. I kind of like the thought that she's just 2 months younger than me :-D

Was just about to reply to you, hehe! Well, she is a sweet little ship, i kind of like ships made before 1980, and this one is cool. She loaded cable on drums, and went away again 14:00. I got soaking wet, but thats just a tool of the trade, hehe! THanx for the nice comment!

I should take a look at the photo section before asking silly questions :-) ...
A very atmospheric photo... Like it very much...
