Photographer's Note

The M/S Lofoten is one of the oldest ship from the Hurtigruten fleet (build in 1962). Unlike more modern ships, she doesn't have lateral engines to help with the harbour moves. Arriving and leaving the quay requires a lot of careful manoeuvers, involving the ship's anchor and mooring ropes.
Here, the ship is leaving the harbour of Mehamm, and an employee from the Norcargo is helping releasing the latest mooring rope before the ship leaves.

I know the top of the picture is blown out, if you have any suggestion please feel free to propose a WS.
