Nice scene. Judging from the landscape the fishermen has a lot of anchor chain out.

I based my painting on this slide stein. I took the liberty of anchoring the fishing boats as on this slide
they were indistinct. I did not want them blown ashore and wrecked. Please advise stein as this is in your domain more than mine!
I would think that 1300 metres of chain is enough to sink them ?

Don't know where it is, but those fjords are generally very deep. In the photograph the boats sems closer to the shore.

The only reason people would settle in a place like this must be the fish? It doesn't look like good farmland...

Ha Ha ! Not since " The Deluge" at least. I wonder if the skippers are gritting their teeth at the " intruder"?

Beautiful. I love the 'Caronia'. I thought these Scandinavians could drop anchor in the middle of Atlantic and hold ground beautifully? What has happened to the Viking Spirit? Have they drunk it all by now? Donald.

Yes the 'CARONIA' with the 'AUREOL' were my two favourites. Yacht like in their looks. I suppose some Viking sailors must have been sober to have beaten Columbus by several centuries?
