Welcome to my world of photo's on flickr
The maritime collection is the most dominating collection in my photostream,
but do also visit the Photo Gallery collection for images of other things than transportation.
In the Maritime collection you will find mostly passenger, cruise and offshore traffic in all kind of angels from frogs view to birds view and from mooring to full speed. Everything is covered, even night shots. There are also boats, navy vessels, cargo/tankers, ferries and all kind of vessels as well, but there are cruise ships and offshore vessels that dominate the port of Bergen. Some photo's are also from Oslo and Stavanger.
The most popular maritime set is:
Offshore vessels pt. 1
You can also find a large aviation collection taken from OSL, BGO and SVG.
OSL is a very photographer friendly airport with multiple photo options. Spotter plattform, spotter ramparts etc.
Here is a map of the official spots (pdf. required)
You can find images from all these spots + more in my collections.
The regular aircraft's to see in these airports is the Boeing 737 and the 3 most regular airlines are:
SAS - Scandinavian Airlines
Norwegian Air Shuttle (Including a complete list of the names of their tails)
There is also a smaller collection of railways in the rails collection that in the future will be renamed the Rails & Road gallery.

"I have never had the pleasure of meeting Tom McNikon, but through the medium of Flickr, and a kindred interest in photo related subjects, I feel that I do know him quite well.
Tom has over a lengthy period, built up, uploaded and shared a remarkable gallery of transport related photographs.
By volume, he specialises in maritime, particularly Norwegian maritime photographs. His collection of Norwegian ships and ferries is phenominal, and a true historical document on the Norwegian fleets of the present day.
The other aspect of Tom's work that is inspirational to me is the quality of his photographs. Tom has mastered all available light conditions, some of his finest photos being low light and evening maritime images.
I recommend anyone exploring Flickr, with an interest in maritime, aviation and other transport related photography to spend time appreciating Tom's images and albums.
Tom also has Facebook photo galleries, links are found on his Flickr profile page.
It is my pleasure to write this testimonial to an inspirational photographer.
