really love #2!
both #1 and the version in the rx1 thread are extremely good but i think what you really needed to make that shot is a step ladder and a 24mm (equiv) lens.
Thank you! Ha ha, yes, I have often thought about bringing a short ladder on photo trips. I can't tell you how often I have missed having one. It wasn't even possible on this trip though, since we flew up there and used a rental car.

Helena, I really think this shot is wonderful. Can you tell us about the abandoned boats? Storm victims?
Thank you very much! A few may be storm victims, but I think the most common reason is economy. It's difficult to make a living with such small boats these days.
Speaking of storms; in 1899, in a place called Titran outside of Trondheim, 140 fishermen died in a huge storm when 29 boats from little villages along the coast went under. On the sign where all names are listed you can see that many families lost all their fathers and sons. What a tragedy!
