Back when I was the happy owner of a pocket camera I liked to take pictures when I was driving hmmm… DSLR made this awkward and even more dangerous, and I don’t know what happened to my trusty little friend – I have to get another small camera again!
This is the cathedral in my hometown Trondheim as seen from the bridge crossing the river Nidelven. The red roofs near the church is the ancient castle of the Archbishop, now serving mostly as a museum.
Work on the cathedral started in 1070 and was finished sometime around 1300. From history we learn that the cathedral was badly damaged by fires in 1327, 1531 and in 1708.
The last major rebuilding and restoration of the cathedral started in 1869, initially led by architect Heinrich Ernst Schirmer and completed by Christian Christie. The cathedral was officially completed in 2001, after more than 900 years of construction…
The workshop image shows the location from an elevated point of view.
Name of the church in Norwegian: Nidarosdomen

jmdias (56955) 2010-01-22 1:04
very interesting this view. I liked the diagonals and the lamp posts making a whole mood for the cathedral anbd its shapes, even the clouds made something like a diagonal movement. well done and beautiful. I wanted to see the cathedral closer in another photo
Clementi (52514) 2010-01-22 1:16
interesting this perspective on the road, seems to be in car and to beware the panorama of the windscreen. good job
gervaso (10829) 2010-01-22 1:46
I like my big camera, but I also love my compact one, because it's easy to carry it with me during my bigger trips. It's always good to be with it by my side. About the image, is has wonderful colors and a beautiful cathedral in the background! Beautiful job with your old pocket camera!
belido (19934) 2010-01-22 3:20
a good play with the perspective of the read the the blue sky. The cathedral is a nice focal point but there are other good elements to observe. Great job!
PS: impossible to mark you note as useful in the Beta Version...
rodgerg (55767) 2010-01-22 3:52
An excellent, orginal and very efficience of this cathedral with the contrasted mixt between the old aricitectur nad the modern haigh way. Beautiful colors and esepcillay very greta depht.
Have a nice WE,

Belle perspective de la route avec un aperçu du haut de la cathédrale sur la droite, un POV qui donne l'impression d'être dans une voiture, superbe lumière
fabianoleite (9561) 2010-01-22 4:30
Great driving view of a very clean and beautiful place. Well framed and withe great sky. Congratulations!
jhm (141139) 2010-01-22 4:34
You chose a very good angle this care for perfect perspective and depth picture.
Picture make out of the hand on these manner is indeed very dangerous.
But it result is very well
Sharpness and clarity are very well.
Colour and composition are very nice for look at
Well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
pierrefonds (58241) 2010-01-22 5:10
The diagonal lines of the street and of the sidewalk are assets to the composition. The trees are framing well the buildings and the church. The point of view is taking my eyes toward the cathedral and the end of the street which is giving depth and perspective to the photo. The nice cloudy sky is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
Budapestman (82620) 2010-01-22 5:42
a very spectacular photo of this beautiful town, the composition is attractive, the cathedral in the background is amazing, we may see closer photos?
Tfs! Have a nice day, my friend!
gilou530 (34) 2010-01-22 8:22
trés trés longue perspective de cette route avec des lignes de fuites qui traversent tout le cadrage, lumiére et couleurs magnifiques
JT50 (1491) 2010-01-22 8:54
I have sen this church many
times but not with this perspective.
It does give it a different dimension.
You were blessed with a lovely day this
April afternoon. Great colours and mood.
Enjoy your weekend.
Bluejeans (64249) 2010-01-22 10:21
Ola Pablo ,
Boa diagonal conseguida com esta estrada deu bastante profundidade de foto , bom contraste de cores , gostei muito do céu , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
Bom fim de semana
UlfE (14641) 2010-01-22 11:59
I have waited for you post a photo of Nidarosdomen for such a long time. With so many churches in our galley and I have excepted it to come sooner or later. The composition is superb taking into account that it is a snabshot from a car. The same goes for the sharpness, it could not be better. Your photo is also a good illustration of the fact that you do not need an SLR to take good pictures.TFS and have nice weekend!
ciakgiak (30421) 2010-01-22 12:16
what a perfect composition, the perspective is perfect, the view of the Cathedral is very pleasant, but overall I find the colours very natural.
gildasjan (41762) 2010-01-22 12:18
Très joli contraste de couleurs pour cette superbe perspective.
Uhu (8481) 2010-01-22 12:19
Now, this are really ancient one! And this work also was quite long - and quite typical for such unique buildings. Churches are really quite unique, thats what I think. )
Great photo - very dynamic one!
bracasha75 (24583) 2010-01-22 23:03
Very nice scene from Trondheim in south of Norway.Lovely spring day Pablo
emka (81684) 2010-01-22 23:49
Hi Pablo very nice photo from Trondheim, with the cathedral over the red roofs and attractive view of the bridge. impressive depth. But i am disappointed that it is not the facade. The Nidarosdomen was for me the most beautiful Gothic church I have ever seen and I would like to see it. I made many photos, trying also stitching, but the photos are not good.
foozi (7101) 2010-01-23 0:15
very special perspective taken in classical style with your red coloured object on the thirds.
Very dramatic sky and lively blue. the green and the red roofs are splendid in giving an impact to the view.
well composed and i like this neat and clean scenery.
well presented shot.
Urs (14082) 2010-01-23 7:36
Interesting perspective I have to say, the road produces a very good DOF. Your light management is excellent by keeping the sun almost in your back. High saturated "golden" hue colors and fine contrast.
I guess TE has disabled my ability so send messages - Thanks for your critique.
plimrn (21344) 2010-01-23 16:26
What an amazing story!!(Both the length of construction and your drive-by capture.) Was this really another drive-by shot?? I remember your drive-by shots. The detail and framing is amazing for the situation. Good thing there wasn't too much traffic.
Vasa (16778) 2010-01-23 16:50
My first idea was January... but your witness says April. Really nice realization, Pablo. I like this palette complete.
batalay (35829) 2010-01-23 17:56
This is a lovely shot of a town I've visited, and indeed toured the Cathedral — not once but twice. Thanks for a chance to see it vicariously one more time.
barrufeto_77 (28886) 2010-01-24 7:15
I like the diagonal effect of the road with the Cathedral in the background.
carper (96) 2010-01-24 9:24
very nice one Pablo,
a fine perspective, so sharp as a knife, well composed, good contrast, fine colors, a very beautiful photo here, well seen and good job, have a good evening.
shevchenko (18728) 2010-01-24 21:12
Pocket camere is useful to shoot photos everywhere without extra effect, this photo is a good example, good perspective effect, beautiful town under the blue sky, distinct photo, good shoot.
mesutilgim (86558) 2010-01-24 23:08
Nice scenery, very well captured.
Petfect pov and very good layout. Nice geometry and perfect sharppness.
An entry enriched with perfect notes as well.
TFS and have a nice day
Longroute (19396) 2010-01-25 1:11
Fine perspective here and a great sense of depth. The green roof of the Cathedral stands out very well from the lovely blue sky and the red roofs of the surrouding houses. Really a well built and balanced composition.
(To be precise: I would have cropped that strange thing at the bottom, I guess it's your car).
Have a nice day,
papagolf21 (87324) 2010-01-25 1:50
Bonjour, cher ami Pablo,
On la voit de loin cette cathédrale aux toits de cuivre, à son clocher élancé à ses tours ornées de pinacles ! Elle se détache élégamment avec ce ciel griffé de nuages allongés.
Une prise de vue originale.
swiatopelk777 (0) 2010-01-25 1:55
Very fine long perspective. Interesting bridge, lanterns and church. Amazing brightness. Excellent colors. Good capture. Very fine white frame.
Greetings from Warszawa!
Tue (27696) 2010-01-25 2:21
When I was in secondary school, I once wrote an essay on Nidarosdomen, although I had never visited it. This is a nice view of the cathedral from the road. The sunlight and colours are attractive. Thanks for sharing.
josepmarin (57833) 2010-01-25 2:57
a good photo taken from your car.
The perspective and the depth that you have obtained from this POV on the bridge contribute a good dynamism to the scene.
The light and the shades work very well on this urban landscape, in which the Cathedral is outlined due to its slenderness over the red roofs.
The aerial sight of the city that we see in the WS is absolutely spectacular.
Good work, my friend.
Giorgio (11279) 2010-01-25 4:10
- Very pretty framing and nice perspective anyway, Pablo, this cathedral with these roofs of unconvincing colours (probably some copper or a similar metal) is superb, this must be very nice to see nearly, it must be very beautiful to look closely, thank you for sharing and congratulations!
s_lush (16134) 2010-01-25 4:32
This point of view, "from the wheels", is typical for any travel, so the scene looks very romantically. Despite the dynamic conditions of the capturing, the composition and quality are excellent, as well as the note. Perfectly good job!
jlbrthnn (76037) 2010-01-25 9:01
Good evening Pablo,
You have the taste for danger:) Nevertheless this superbly enlightened image has a good framing. The cathedral appears there clearly. The colors and clearnesses are a pleasure. cheer.
Have a good evening
Silvio1953 (125483) 2010-01-25 9:09
Ciao Pablo, splendid composition with beautiful perspective on fantastic cathedral, wonderful light and colors, very well done, ciao Silvio
subhendu_bagchi (25907) 2010-01-25 10:14
great capture of this beautiful cathedral from the nice POV. Great colours and sharpness. The building looks great and contrasting well with the rest. Very fine presentation. Tfs.
Have a nice week.
JCG (35129) 2010-01-25 10:35
Never easy photographs taken of car… especially when it is the driver of the car !!! A beautiful prospect on this linear road and a good framing which gives a good balance to the image where one notice the splendid roof of this cathedral. Good condition of light too. Thank you for the additional image in WS which enables us to locate you.
With all my friendships and a very good week,
TopGeo (38204) 2010-01-25 12:03
Great perspective and amazing scene, Pablo! thanks for sharing Very nice picture with beautiful colors. The composition impresses also the background a interesting scene and frame
emjleclercq (15780) 2010-01-25 13:54
A great perpective, and a very nice blue sky. I think I visit the cathedral in Trondheimm in 1990, but clearly I paid no attention to the bridge nearby!
All the best,
Angshu (56182) 2010-01-25 21:00
Not an usual picture from you, I must say...obviously taken from the car, though I do remember some pictures you posted quite a while back, taken from your car! The perspective is well created, and I like the view of the church, quite majestic on the right. Well done!
anducina (8407) 2010-01-25 23:03
Excellent POV and colors. That red houses and green cathedral looks great under the blue sky. Well framed.
wolf38 (31282) 2010-01-25 23:22
Hello Pablo. The composition pleases me very well. Although the cathedral is the real center, but the environment is well integrated. Good lighting and colors. Informative text. Regards, Wolfgang.
paura (47166) 2010-01-26 1:16
As cores estão uma beleza aqui. O enquadramento também é outro ponto de destaque. Muito boa.
Nicou (124994) 2010-01-26 3:19
fantastique captage, quelle perspective, avec le graphisme de la barrière, tu t'es couché sur le sole pour capter ce pont, avec les lampadaires, le clocher vert, ce ciel de flanelles, grandiose.
Bravo et amitié
leonorkuhn (16235) 2010-01-26 4:56
Beautiful image of this friendly city. I visited this cathedral on a rainy day. Excellent perspective created by the bridge. Stunning colors, magnificent light and great sharpness.
AiresSantos (56155) 2010-01-26 5:27
Hi dear Pablo
Fine picture of the road and Cathedral of Trondheim
I like a lot your POV and diagonal
Regards my friend

belle photo de cette superbe vue sur cette cathédrale avec son vert de gris sur le toit.
Jolies couleurs, bonne netteté, merci de ce partage.
Graal (98628) 2010-01-26 23:26
nice picture from Your archive. I like the perspective, colours and architecture of church in BG. View in WS is great. Fuji F.Pix is ok. also.
mauro61 (52623) 2010-01-27 0:09
bella immagine dalla lunga prospettiva con una buona definizione e un bellissimo cielo azzurro
pajaran (53285) 2010-01-27 1:25
Dobar dan, kod nas pada sneg i hladno je.
Ograda mosta dala je odlicnu perspektivu, dobre boje i lepa fotografija, cestitam, odlican rad.
Prijatan dan i lepo vreme, Paja.
Good day, our snow and cold.
Railing of the bridge gave a great perspective, good colors and beautiful photos, congratulations, excellent work.
Have a nice day and good weather, Paja.
gunbud (34066) 2010-01-27 6:00
You show a very intresting prespective front the bridge which adds a wonderful bit of depth to this lovely urban scene.
The lovely blue sky with its wispy sky really compliments the orange roofs.
This not your usual wooden fare but its 900 years of troubled history is quite compelling.
Philippe (11836) 2010-01-27 12:55
Hi, Pablo. You've created a good perspective using the lines of the pavement on the right. There is a good balance between the road on the left and the church on the right. Maybe too many lamp-posts. Apart from that, the red roofs and the green spire are good eye-catchers.
Have a nice evening,
jafadabret (56501) 2010-01-27 13:23
J'admire la composition de cette photo avec la perspective et l'église. Le ciel et la lumière font beaucoup pour la beauté de l'ensemble.
edal (6804) 2010-01-27 13:42
Good evening, Pablo!
With all those diagonals radiating from the "end" of the street the composition looks bi-focused - the first focus is the cathedral, of course.
This photo is a proof that the photographer, and not the camera makes the good photo.
jaywalker (16101) 2010-01-27 16:53
Hi Pablo, What a great view over the bridge & the church to the right is a stunning piece of architecture, very good light casting great long shadows, a wonderfully composed picture, kind regards Wilson.
fanni (14381) 2010-01-28 0:54
in combination with the WS aerial photo which is an impressive set of shots showing the place :) One is a bird's view, and the other is a human view ;)
Dynamism in the photo is created by the road going far ahead towards the horizon... I like it!
Oh yes, those nice words in your Note: "... when I was the happy owner of a pocket camera"..! :-))
and "DSLR made this awkward"..! Oh yes!!
I think I should get myself a new pocket camera again. It can take such nice shots in an instant!
Wishing you all the best,
skippy007 (12510) 2010-01-28 22:47
Hello Pablo, fantastic the colour & perspective in this scene, well balanced with all elements in their correct place, the converging lines work well to lead the eye along the road & well into the scene. Is that the front of your vehicle I can see on the bottom of the frame? naughty boy.
I bet you were not driving when you took the WS version or were you? Beautiful capture, nice work, compliments.
danos (88205) 2010-01-29 0:27
Good morning Pablo,
nice the part of the Cathedral of your home town with the empty road to creates depth in the scene.But even with your pocket camera, the driving is dangerous too.I like the best,the aerial shot from your home town.
Have a nice day,Danos
Didi (57652) 2010-01-29 23:51
With my heavy Canon it's imposible to take a picture while driving and it's possible to get 4 points less from the driving license.
Nice lateral perspective indeed.
denisn72 (8300) 2010-01-30 9:59
Interesting cathedral against the blue sky. The red roofs add more colours and fit perfectly with the blue and green. A closer view of the cathedral would be very great. It seems to be a masterpiece! Good job!
serp2000 (40934) 2010-01-31 6:59
So good quality for pocket camera! Nice colours and fine POV! What I see in the low central part of this shot? Is it special idea to add some strange?
Have a good week!
mvdisco (17778) 2010-02-01 6:26
Hi Pablo ,Bonjour,
Excellent point of view of this perpective and the view to the Cathedrale of Nidarosdomen, Excellent details and caught of view in your car,
picture very well taken and done..
all my compliments and nice note too..
jusninasirun (17160) 2010-02-01 7:27
This is such a wonderful shot with the road alongside the cathedral. The curb and the fence make leading perspective with bright roofing of the cathedral looking stunning against the beautiful sky.
Nice shot and thanks for sharing.
Juntas (7960) 2010-02-02 7:13
Hi Pablo. Hehe, that was an habbit that I had too with my first digital camera, a little Benq. This perspective is very nice and provides a great depth. The beautiful cathedral looks nice against the nice blue sky. Colors are nice and sharpness is very good. Well done. BEst regards.
delkoo (68) 2010-02-04 1:01
Well composed shot, excellent perspective but for me it is the colour & light that make this really stand out.
sanjibandey (386) 2010-02-06 13:47
very Impressive capture of the Cathedral.
Very good color and exposer.
good composition with road.
Very well done
yedirenk (11244) 2010-02-16 11:29
Hi dear friend Pablo,

Grande prospettiva ........e via di fuga che sembra non finire.
Foto che ha avuto i giusti e meritati consensi degli amici ...
AKITA (15125) 2010-04-15 20:59
very simple perspective is very effective to show us beautiful cathedral so vividly,
its green and orange roofs are splendidly contrasted with back pure blue sky on fore gray road,
clear air and bright light are wonderful to make whole view shining,
thank you for your excellent shot,
alvaraalto (6177) 2010-06-09 8:01
I can remember how dark it was inside if the Nidaros cathedral, but also the impressive west front. I must have some slides of it, but the camera I used then was not too good.
ikeharel (59435) 2010-11-04 7:43
The long fence on picture creats wonderful depth , Pablo.
A fine colors and contrast, well collected, on good prespective.
clic (15358) 2010-12-12 13:21
Many thanks for your kind words, dear Pablo.
I see you were still driving with a single hand to enter this colourful Trondheim area that features the lovely historic church rooftop that reigns over city.
Joyeux Noel et bonne année 2010....see you when you're through laughinf at my last poster!
