Coastal steamers Vesterålen and Trollfjord

Last night and this morning has so far been a rather windy day, with snow-, hail- and rain showers changing every hour. It was perhaps a bit windy to put on wings today, but the light was just too amazing to let it pass. On the way home from yet another long night watch, I decided to make a quick stop to get the shot of today. 

Coastal steamers (also known as Hurtigruten) Vesterålen and Trollfjord spent a few hours in town before continuing on their respective journeys along the Norwegian coast: Trollfjord has already departed southbound for Bergen, while Vesterålen is expected to depart for Kirkenes and northern Norway in a few minutes. Bon voyage to all guests - and crew on both ships.
