This is Dyrafjeld at the harbour in Oslo and thisa girl is one of many youngster working here!
Thise Norwegian “jakt” of 1889, among the world’s oldest wooden vessels, is still sailing. After a long period as a sailing- and motorfreighter she was lovingly rebuilt by Hans van de Vooren. Under the name "Anna Kristina" she has sailed the seas for many years, from Spitsbergen in the north to Tasmania in the south.
Her history is the history of the Norwegian yatchs and ketches, who sailed along the coast with fish and goods. Some of them even went overseas with dried, salted fish for the markets in Portugal, Spain, Brazil. The Norwegian yachts combined strength with beauty. Build for sailing in the stormy winter of the North Atlantic they could handle all sorts of weather and conditions. Still, their lines and proportions speak of craftsmen with skills and sense for perfection. Now a gem amongst the sailing ships of the world, she serves the young and the future as a training ship in Oslo.
This photo was taken at the Sollerud harbour in western Oslo. In the WS you can see a photo of the whole ship, taken from the Lysaker harbour on the other side of the Lysaker river.

I like the good sharp image here, with the bright contrasting colours.
You have made great notes about " Anna Kristina" with some history of this old, but famous yacht.
Maybe we shall see her here in Greenock sometime in future, many yachts pass this way with training school onboard.
Like the workshop.
Small observation, this young pretty girl needs her hair tied back ? could be in some mess if caught up with the varnish.

Hi Gunnar, the ship is not big, but very beautiful and very old. But on this photo I find this young blond girl in blue more attractive than the vessel.
Well done, have a nice week.

It is a pity her face is almost invisible... But set of photographs is really impressive here.
Regards my dear friend.

Hi Gunnar. A photo from the world of work. Here a ship is made fit for the season. The blond woman with the blue overalls is an ideal color point in the scene. Well done. Informative text. Regards, Wolfgang.

Good Morning Gunnar,
Interesting notes to accompany this shot.
The shot is really well exposed and with a fine diagonal composition, which leads the viewer naturally across the frame, unhurried and with plenty of time to absorb the details. The young lady, with her brightly coloured overall, makes a great focal point and she is nicely placed in the frame.
Have a good day,

What a very blonde girl. Judging from the colours of her overall and paint-brush she might be Swedish. Maybe she is. This is a nice glimpse of a kind of daily life with many fine details from this proud old ship.
Kielia (22913) 2010-04-26 5:22
one can clearly see that the girl is a descendent of the Vikings!
Very nice impression of daily life at the sea - this work is essential for the boat. I also appreciate the photo in WS which is even more to my liking!

this is a very sharp photo, with bright vivid colours, and warm sunlight refecting off of her hair,and the banister.

A scene of life very well collected and well presented in a verticla format. details of the botas well collcetd too, beuatiful contrasts and good management of light. The blue and too the beautiful hair of the young woman arise in the image.
Have a ggod evening,
UlfE (14639) 2010-04-26 11:42
A wonderful shot. I love all the details with the bucket, all the ropes and the girl's concentration of what see is doing. See is real eye catcher even if she is not dressed in red but blue. TFS and have a fine week!

Greetings from Poland.

I would help readily this charming and fair worker to do his work:) I like his female attitude which you knew to capture. The history of this worthy sailing ship is very interesting. The composition is skilful and very beautiful with the ropes. I appreciate also the useful ws and well done with a difficult light. Excel work.
Have a nice day

Interesting scene of the Viking worker who is concentrated in his job.
Good frame quality.

Hi Gunnar! A wonderful shot. A moment of life of new woman very well collected and well presented in a vertical format Colors clear and attractive style a pleasant moment of the ship in nursing Impressive WS! Bravo!
mafegan (8624) 2010-04-28 1:20
I am always expecting to see a splash of red in your photos but in this instance you have found another primary colour. Sharp detail especially along the ropes and nice composition. Tfs, Marlene

Hello Gunnar! Nice woman at work. Nice scene. Very fine delicate colours. Good capture. Original image. Well done!
fanni (14377) 2010-05-01 17:17
I find both photos equally interesting, and they make a very good set of images complementing each other :)
the "girl in blue" stands out so clearly in this shot! She was way too busy to notice you taking a shot? :)

detta får mig att tänka på att min gamla Volvo Duett behöver översyn(rosten äter glupskt på skärmar och hjulhus)Härligt Vårfoto från en intressant miljö, det är glädjande att kulturarvet vårdas.
Skarp och fint exponerad bild!
Gott Nytt År!

A young and beautiful lady doing a maintenance job on the ship.
Nice blue overall she wears, and with her blond - that's match Sweeden flag...
Nice taken the moment, good evening,
