Trondheimsfjorden is Norway’s third longest fjord with 130 km and is located to Central Norway, named after the city of Trondheim that is situated by the fjord.
This is one of the two ferries crossing the fjord in a continuous schedule, connecting the city with the Fosen Peninsula we can see in the background.
The bow is already lifted to save time, as the ferry approaches the dock!
The vessel we see here is M/F Trondheim (LGEF), certified for 124 cars and 315 passengers. M/F Trondheim is 96.95 m long and 15.50 m wide, and was delivered from Kaldnes Mek Verksted December 17 1992.
WS Ferry image shows the same vessel in a distance.
A couple of my distinguished critiques mention the rails as an obstacle I’d be better off without… I assume what they really want is something like the workshop image Ferry 2?
I feel bad now…
Remember the squirrel from my last posting? I’m afraid I have made the poor animal a chocolate addict, willing to do anything for a bite..!
WS Squirrel is a vidcap showing the little creature trying to figure out how to get his paws on the chocolate inside the window!

A pov very well selected and a good balalnce in teh composition with the ferry well located on the left of the image. Great prospect too.
Have a nice sunday,
JCG (35129) 2009-06-14 5:42
Beautiful catch of sight on these heavy lorries of the sea which allow with one good weather like here, to make, moment of a crossing, a beautiful cruising… A photograph which recalls me, for my part, a crossing animated to connect Brittany to Porthmous in England during the storm of 1988 !!! Well seen Pablo, and thank you still to propose us from your friend the squirrel in WS…
With all my friendships and very good Sunday,
cknara (556) 2009-06-14 6:02
Nice composition.The blue sky & the white ferry is an attractive combination.
belido (19934) 2009-06-14 6:13
very good catch of the giant. I like its placement in the frame. The horizon line in the fisrt third makes the sky also an interesting subject. Lighting and colors are natural and pleasant. Well done!
PS: love the squirrel shot too!
trekks (14348) 2009-06-14 7:34
A long time since I see your post here.
And this post makes it worthwhile to come back to your gallery. Very nice capture of the ferry landing, and you know how to give a nice composition here.
I really wish we have such a ferry in Malaysia again. We had them in 1980s and I took a ride across the South China Sea with my car but the operation lost money and the government closed it down. Not sure about the ferry but it was from Europe refurbished, maybe from Germany or Holland.
jusninasirun (17162) 2009-06-14 7:57
Amazing pov of this ferry. I looks like sitting on land with the huge size. The setting and mood of the shot are so well registered and I am sorry about your feeling of the squirrel.
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week ahead.

I love short ferry crosses, I hated only one (Bodo Lofoten) guess WHY??? ;)))))
Nice SIMPLE composition of a TYPICAL ferryscape in Norway,
Buin (42350) 2009-06-14 9:35
A wonderful photo - in each respect - especially for a landlubber like me! ;-) I like especially the impression of wideness in this photo,in this fjord. Your photo gives me the travel bug ...
Greetings from a warm and sunny Germany!
Silvio1953 (125725) 2009-06-14 10:04
Ciao Pablo, beautiful composition with lovely ship, wonderful light and colors, splendid sky, very well done, ciao Silvio
josepmarin (57833) 2009-06-14 10:39
Beautiful light and beautiful colors in this capture. I like the sharpness of the image that allows us to see all the details of the dock and of the ferry.
It is interesting to see the prow raised before coming to the dock, to save time, and you explain it perfectly in your note.
A good work.
paura (47166) 2009-06-14 17:06
Beleza de fotografia aqui, amigo, tomada com fotometria realmente eficiente e com bonita definição de elementos. Muito boa.
vasilpro (40997) 2009-06-14 17:19
Very nice composition with the ferry under a beautiful sky, vary good contrast and colors.
dareco (17134) 2009-06-14 20:14
Very nice composition and detail. I also enjoyed seeing the ws images. TFS
danos (88347) 2009-06-14 23:13
Good morning Pablo,
nice the view of the arriving ferry,with all these cars and passengers that is carrying.I cannot imagine that the people and the cars will be disembarked at this dock!It seems so narrow.
Have a nice week,Danos
alvaraalto (6177) 2009-06-15 3:30
The POV you chose for this picture is almost suggesting that the ferry is heading for the rocks. :-)
Lovely characteristic image of the ferries in the Norwegian fjords.
Giorgio (11279) 2009-06-15 3:38
- Nice view on the ferry Pablo, you're in the desert ambience of the place, we are not too bothered by tourists, in any case, bravo, good shoot!
All the best.
jhm (141307) 2009-06-15 5:29
A totally other subject than usual, but very well with these ferry
The horizon line in the first third makes the sky also an interesting subject.
Colourfully and attractive picture, excellent captured and composed.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
clic (15436) 2009-06-15 6:18
Thanks for your last visit.
With such an open mouth, the Lady appears exhausted after crossing the bay!
Impressive giant modern work (that don't seems very polluting) welcomed by dock lamps standing to attention.
Shame on you for spoiling baby squirrels!
molla (7127) 2009-06-15 6:36
I just gave critics on Gerts Photo from A grecce ferry and saw that you had a similiar photo. but with the differnce that this has an other tone, in a way bluesier tone like the way you framed the image witht those lamp poles and in a way shrinken the boat. the snow on the fjells in the background give extra flavor to the picture.
mvdisco (17778) 2009-06-15 7:05
Belle prise de vue de ce traversier,
Excellente présentation et détails,
Beautiful sky and light.
great naturel colors too.
great composition too..as usual.
Kielia (23847) 2009-06-15 8:59
what a charming capture of this typical ferry! And a nice impression of the seascape. The gentle colors and the light are really attractive. My compliments for this wonderful impression! Photos in WS are also highly appreciated, especially the one of the hungry Squirrel! TFS!
anducina (8407) 2009-06-15 10:01
Very nice and impressive, the white ferry on that blue sea, with the mountains on the BG and the immense sky above. Believe it or not, I have never traveled with a ferry... It must be great to visit those Norwegian fjords...
UlfE (14641) 2009-06-15 10:54
A really well-composed picture and taken from an unusual POV. I like the inclusion of the lamp-posts and the fences. They might be a bit ugly but you have done skilfully. It is a bit unusual pictures in your gallery. I guess that you might run of of farm views in your surroundings. With such a lot of coast in Norway I would be surprised if this is the first one in a series. TFS and have a fine week!
wgreis (8267) 2009-06-15 14:56
very interesting this kind of ship, and you got a good photo with this POV.
The mountains at the background are interesting too.
shevchenko (18824) 2009-06-15 19:22
Good pov to show a ship moving between cloudy blue sky and calm sea, nice color at a sunny day, distinct photo, interesting composition, thanks for sharing a modern ship.
berek (40511) 2009-06-15 21:05
interesting ferryboat my friend. your timing an framing are very good. clear picture with harbour atmosphere.
serp2000 (41012) 2009-06-16 2:41
It seems like a ship begins to eat the metal constructions. Hehehe... Excellent POV! Fine shot!
Greetings from hot Ural,
jlbrthnn (76037) 2009-06-16 4:41
Clearness is obvious, the boat is well photographed under a pleasant and well managed light. Excellent colors. Cheer.
Have a nice day
yedirenk (11244) 2009-06-16 12:31
Hi dear Pablo,
an eye-catcher scene with superb clarity and sharpness.a great ferry under the wonderful sky.interesting daily life shot.nice presentation.well done.TFS
Philippe (11836) 2009-06-16 14:05
Hi, Pablo. The lamp posts frame the ferry well and create a good perspective. The upper part of the boat stands out well against the sky. But I do not like the railings in the foreground too much, I think they block the view a little. But this is only my humble opinion.
Have a nice evening,
gunbud (34066) 2009-06-16 18:30
There is something very compelling about a ferry arriving or departing from a remote local and this shot is no exception.
The giant transport stands out brilliantly agains this lovely blue sky and dramatic clouds.
PS Looks like you own a red squirrel.
John_F_Kennedy (43181) 2009-06-17 2:46
Nicely composed. Nice colours and sharp details. A good POV on that ship with the quai in the FG. You have captured it very well with excellent details.
AiresSantos (56155) 2009-06-17 5:15
Fine view of the FERRY arriving. Beautiful natural colours and details
Well framed and done
Have a nice day
aadilj (18102) 2009-06-17 6:09
Hi pablo, this is nice! I love the scene and love the way you have compsoed it with such a keen eye
jafadabret (56501) 2009-06-17 6:25
J'aime la lumière sur le ferry, le ciel et la mer au plus calme. Les couleurs sont superbes. Beau travail et excellents WS !
pierrefonds (58337) 2009-06-17 7:05
The lamposts have a graphical effect, they are also framing well the ferry boat. The point of view leads our eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the photo. The light has a good effect on the colors of the scenery. Have a nice day from Yellowknife.
besnard (53997) 2009-06-17 9:17
Un très bon cliché avec le bâteau qui semble capter toute la lumière.
Merci pour cette belle image et bonne soirée.
stego (24030) 2009-06-17 17:22
It's a bit of a surprise that you produced such an attractive photo with a relatively banal subject. I guess it is because the compo is very accomplished and the clarity is superb.
jwmunro (286) 2009-06-17 19:10
Hello Pablo -
I am not sure where I stand on this image. All of the technical stuff is right on the money, but the composition leaves me a bit flat. I think what I am really reacting to is the multiple railings between the viewer and the subject. They don't seem to have any impact on the scene other than to block details of the subject. Now with that said ... How would I fix it? Haven't got a clue! Technically it is excellent; compositionally it is questionable IMHO. With the composition in the back of my mind I am leaning toward a middle smiley, but then again I am the only dissenter so how can everyone be wrong.
Thank you for sharing.
Graal (98670) 2009-06-17 23:31
an interesting informations and well done photo. Good presentation of ferry near by harbor. I like it.
foozi (7101) 2009-06-18 1:59
the colours are very rich and dense. really stands out on the cavas. the posts and rails actually give a good framing to te main subject. The sky in soft blue make it standout more.
well composed with elements always mentioned in the photographic books.
Tue (27696) 2009-06-18 6:52
Good capture of the arrival of the ferry, which is well placed on the left hand side of the composition. The sunlight and colours are very attractive too here and created a fine, peaceful atmosphere.
Nicou (125220) 2009-06-18 7:17
Merveilleuse vue su ce bâteau, dans un splendide ciel avec le graphisme des barrière, une toute belle image.
Merci et amitié
Cricri (108775) 2009-06-18 10:34
Belle prise de l'arriver du Ferry, plus impressionnante que celle en WS plue éloigné mais j'aime les rochers en cadrage, un grand sourire pour celle avec le petit et adorable écureuil:-)
jmdias (57061) 2009-06-18 16:06
interesting the 2 workshops created by you. The animal was really thinking about the problem. I liked the pov of the landscapoe in the WS, with that orange lichens in the stones. Here we can see better the ferry, the place looks so empty. I liked the light and this pov here, perfect framing too
batalay (35875) 2009-06-18 22:00
Blue and black complement each other, and the ship's yellow smoke stoke serves as a color highlight. Lovely shot from 2006.
ellelloo (6572) 2009-06-18 23:59
A well composed photo of this ferry landing with the fjord as the background, The sky is very beautiful. Good natural colours and excellent sharpness. TFS!
Waylim (25368) 2009-06-19 0:15
Very nice one, even though the fence is kind of blocking the view of the overall of the ferris. I kind of wish you could get closer to avoid them and have a better view of it, but the a lamps work well in the composition and the path lead to it also is nice, the back ground of snowy mountain give the essence of the place and the temperature. Good sharpness and excellent clarity.
bakes888 (18499) 2009-06-19 1:01
Hi Pablo. Nice series of photos. I took a couple of ferry rides myself recently down to our South Island and Stewart Island, one larger and one smaller that this. Nice photo, good sharpness and colours and though the rails do impose a little they don’t really distract unduly. Thanks for sharing.
Have a good weekend, Paul.
PS You’ll have to send your little friend of to rehab. ;-)
delkoo (68) 2009-06-19 2:13
Well composed in wonderful light. Your POV is well chosen and there is good quality all over the photo.
dip (23640) 2009-06-19 12:58
beautiful image with interesting details,
good POV and sharpness,
very well done,
hay_kes (30448) 2009-06-19 13:17
Very beautiful photo vith excellent POV, colours and light.TFS.
AKITA (15125) 2009-06-19 23:51
dear Pablo Minto,
a calm and beautiful arrival in fine day,
peaceful atmosphere is wonderful.
this open head of ferry boat looks like big black shell,
maybe there is a pearl in it.
plimrn (21344) 2009-06-20 7:52
As Way notes, the light poles and walkway do a nice job of framing the ferry in this post, and as Paul notes, the three together make a great series. My favorite is the open mouth approaching the dock for its sense of movement.
And your poor squirrel buddy, looks like he's sitting on your bike; very charming.
Emile (20350) 2009-06-21 15:37
A good photo of the ferry arriving to port, your POV is very good as well as the sharpness of detail, good colors and focus. I like your two WS very much. Good work.
scroller (3407) 2009-06-22 13:12
This photo makes me thinking about the trip that was planned in next week. I was suppose to kayaking the Sogner fjord, but my friend got some problems. Hopefully next summer... I know its a bit south from this place but still..Norway ..and water ;). A very informative note together with excellens and clearity!
fanni (14381) 2009-06-23 4:45
my very first impression: the photo is full of strange "metallic" colours! a bit "dry", crisp, clear... maybe these are often the colours of the North?
Interesting composition; very good photo, a bit nostalgic (to me).
Best greetings from Moscow!
PS. I don't mind the railings in front of the ferry, by the way...
PPS. about the chocolate-addicted squirrel: VERY cute photo in the Workshop ;) But if the squirrel really eats chocolate, don't make it too addicted to it: sweet things are very bad for animals' health!
Angshu (56190) 2009-06-23 20:58
Honestly I like the WS picture where the rails do not create an obstruction to the view & not that the rails are nice looking ;-). The distance in this post (between you & the ferry) is better though....tough choice, but as a package I like it. Technicals impeccable as always!
skippy007 (12510) 2009-06-29 16:31
Hello Pablo, Even for a squirrel I think it is not very difficult to become a Chocolate addict. A very clear and pin sharp image with excellent natural colours of this ferry and it's surroundings. All WS photos are very nice and worthy of posting on their own, in the end it depends on what you like & the message you wanted to convey, I think,
The squirrel, don't worry too much when you are gone and there is no more chocolate is addiction will also go & he can get back to his normal healthy diet. ;-)).

Interesting capture with nice colours!!!
Excelenet note, indeed!!
Very well done!!!
All the best,
Urs (14082) 2009-09-03 1:46
WS no I do not think that should be done. Your picture is o.k., just there are different views how to take a picture. I personally would go to the pier, where the ferry will arrive and take the same picture but with the crowd waiting for the ferry or even better leaving the ferry. I have no idea if that is technically possible. Moreover I have never cared about rails or what so ever, it is there so let it be there. Sometimes there is no way around it.
Returning to your picture your light and color management is fine, as is the sharpness. The sky is nice.
ikeharel (59615) 2010-09-21 9:28
Since we don't see such ferries in Israel - it is always very impressive to watch the giant ship anchors and people, cars and trucks disembark, Pablo.
Fine scene and clear details with clouds in BG as well.
