Cruise ships, offshore and seismic vessels Øygarden

Hjeltefjord, which is on the east side of Øygarden, is one of the main shipping routes into Bergen and of course the offshore CCB base at Ågotnes. Spectacular cruise ships sail past regularly on their way in and out of Bergen and all manner of offshore vessels head past on their way to and from work sites in the North Sea.

All these pictures were taken from my garden which overlooks Hjeltefjord. The pictures are reduced resolution images; anyone interested in using them may contact me for high resolution versions.
