Thanks, that's nice :-)
Seeing your photo I just noticed that it's been quite some time since I saw icicles around here! The climate change... :-(
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Mar 24, 2008 21:54 (10 years ago)
Check you mailbox for iceicle-shots
Jens Boldt on Mar 24, 2008 21:46 (10 years ago)
Ice-topped, and maybe some icicles here and there...even better!! :-)
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Mar 24, 2008 21:42 (10 years ago)
One iced aurora (perhaps) coming up, hehe!
Jens Boldt on Mar 24, 2008 21:31 (10 years ago)
We'll have the results here tomorrow evening, I suppose!
Blue Aurora, topped with snow, sounds nice! :-D
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Mar 24, 2008 21:14 (10 years ago)
The first time i got inside Larvik port, i was so stunned that i could not belive it. I guess its just smart to be polite?
The aurora is at anchor, not sure how the angle to shoot her might become. and it snows ALOT...
Lets find out!
Jens Boldt on Mar 24, 2008 21:12 (10 years ago)
My experience shows that you'll get inside! I'de be damned, if you don't! :-D
You really have an exciting life nowadays: star photographer, new luxury yacht, new mcbook, tricking out guards at the harbour... sounds like the ingredients of a new James Bond movie, he,he! :lol: :lol:
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Mar 24, 2008 20:41 (10 years ago)
Or puke, hehe! She lays at anchor and will start to load tomorrow. I have to try to get inside dock-area again. Exiting.
Jens Boldt on Mar 24, 2008 20:33 (10 years ago)
Hey, pal, you know how to make women happy!!! :-D
(I thought of a special person from Switzerland with an unhealthy addiction to blue feeders!) :lol:
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Mar 24, 2008 20:24 (10 years ago)
No, no, free-day today as well. Tomorrow i am picking up my new mac in oslo, and planning to shoot the aurora as well(yes, THAT blue one). Hihihi!
Jens Boldt on Mar 24, 2008 20:17 (10 years ago)
Hey, sounds like Christmas AND Easter on one day! :lol:
In Germany we have a red-letter day today (Easter Monday), so in Norway it was a working day?
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Mar 24, 2008 20:11 (10 years ago)
Hehe... I bow my head in honour. I just do what i like. Take shots and write crap, hehe! I bought my first macbook pro today as well. Oh happy days, yes
Jens Boldt on Mar 24, 2008 20:07 (10 years ago)
Aaaaah, have to get your other photo quickly!!!!
But first, yes, you're right, with the snow it turned out to be one of those special and unique "Tomas from Sandefjord"-photos. No flattery here, in my opinion a simple fact.
And yes once again for uploading the other photo. As long as you only sold them the right to publish it and not your right of ownership, then, as I see it, you can still do with the photo whatever you want!
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Mar 24, 2008 19:58 (10 years ago)
Ah, it was strange to see her come. I hoped for sun, but hey, the snow added some flare, i think! No, i uploaded it here as well. Perhaps i should not?
Jens Boldt on Mar 24, 2008 19:49 (10 years ago)
Hm, maybe you should have tried and gone for a trip on Pelorus instead of getting paid. So you sold the photo completely? Good for you, too bad for us! :-D
As I said yesterday, now is the first time I see her completely on a photo from a fellow shipspotter. She's gorgeous!
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Mar 24, 2008 19:34 (10 years ago)
Well, i think she is on some kind of trials, she is here to refuel, and since she been on the yard in hamburg, i suspect some seatrials? It was FANTASTIC to see her. Oh my god, the luxury.
Got paid from dagbladet as well!
Jens Boldt on Mar 24, 2008 19:29 (10 years ago)
Hope the photo from the Dagbladet will show up here, too!! :-D
Excellent photos, I was really looking forward to them since yesterday!!! :-)
A yacht of that class in the snow, a rare view!
Here it was snowing today, too...

Since my Norwegian is non-existent, what is Pelorus up to in Norway?
