More frosty boats


I continue my series of pictures of small pleasure crafts in the winter. These are tied up in the marina, but there is a thin layer of ice on the fjord. I suppose that isn't doing the hull much good.

BTW - the white building in the background - called Alvøen Papirfabrik (Alvøen Paper Mills) made the paper for all Norwegian paper currency until fairly recently.

It looks very cold there. A good day for picture taking maybe but definately not for boating.

It looks so clear and crisp. This is a pretty picture and I enjoyed the snippit of info about the white building.

Very beautiful photographs, with beam of afternoon sun above in the timbers of small boat it diffuses hot light in the picture and in the cold fjord.

Always enjoy your boat pictures as I spend a lot of time around the water! It looks chilly there... but nice to see the sunny blue sky.

Definitely looks cold with a little sunlight in the background to give hope for warmer days!

It looks very cold but if there is only a thin layer of ice maybe it's not?

Great picture, Runee - and I'm fascinated by the information about the paper currency.

Just caught up with your boat posts - great photos; I especially like the lighting in this one. Iced water is definitely something I don't have to contend with here. I can sail all year round.
