A boating paradise

Recommended Posts

Just back from an 8 Day cruise of the Norwegian Fjords, not on my boat though ;):lol:

Its a bit of a boating paradise, albeit not so in the winter when it gets down to -30C. Hundreds of miles of sheltered water, set in beautiful scenery.

Apparently, around 80% of the population own a boat, and its easy to see why.

The attached photo is a hand-held panorama of the Fjord at Olden, comprising three separate pictures that I 'stitched' together.

The Fjord is about 100km long.

For the photographers among you, the camera is a Canon 30D, with a Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 DC EX lens, at 18mm.

Did you hire, Dave?

Well sort of John, but it came with a captain and full crew, as it was a 77,000 ton cruise liner, the Oceana. :lol:

Southampton, Bergen, Molde, Olden, Stavanager, and back to Southampton.

An interesting trip coming back, as we ran into a Force 8, just south of Norway, which built up a substantial swell. :Stinky:dance
