This ship is also a ship i have been "chasing" for a while. But each time she had gone, i was to late, to early, something.
And in Stavanger, what do you know. I have planned a LONG walking trip, and it really was to dark to take a picture, but i thought i could do it anyway. An hour later, on the way back, she was gone. I dont think i ever will get a decent picture of her.

Thanx sir, it was a very very pleasant place to photograph, open spaces, not to much stuff in the way, etcetra. And yes, the lights was pretty nice!

The lights inset at the edge of the quay are something I've not seen before - and wouldn't have except for some worthwhile Norwegian night photography. You live and learn, as we say. Nice one Gaz,

So I'll accept my fate and will be waiting patiently... dad! :-D
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Jan 15, 2008 22:43 (11 years ago)
Wait and see young man, hehe..

Sick light?
Please explain...
(Ruby-red sunrises and jet-black skies? :-D )
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Jan 15, 2008 22:28 (11 years ago)
Sure is. Wait untill the summertime, then we are talking about sick light.
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Jan 15, 2008 22:26 (11 years ago)
Yeah, the blue lights actually was along the whole dock. I am very pleased with the camera. Especially in early morning, it takes some pretty cool shots. A lot to learn, though!
Jens Boldt on Jan 15, 2008 22:25 (11 years ago)
I agree!
Nothing undecent here, on the contrary.
Scandinavian nights got something for spotting ships. :-D

But it´s a super nightview, EOS cameras really do work nicely in the dark. Hehe. Cool looking lights on the quayside btw. :-)
