Greetings all,


So while scrolling through my facebook I happened upon this great picture of a group of German mortarmen with a fjord behind them. 

 

Image may contain: one or more people and outdoor

 

 

The water looked peaceful and reflective and on the left-hand side of the picture, I noticed what appeared to be half a ship wearing baltic camo!

My very first thought was that it was Nurnberg. So I went to dig up some pictures of Nurnberg in her baltic camo...

No that's not quite right... what about her 1943 camo scheme??

Not quite, but it's very close... besides, this specific camo scheme was slightly altered several times by the Germans so this could be one of the less-photographed versions.

 

 

It was at this moment that I realized that the "fjord" was actually a house.....

 

:Smile_facepalm:

 

 

They say the human brain will try to find a face in any object, apparently, mine will attempt to find a ship in any object. :Smile_teethhappy:

When I started reading this I was like "But... but that's a house. ...that /is/ a house, right?" and I was looking really close to make sure that was a house. Then I got further and was relieved that I wasn't going crazy and that was indeed a house. :Smile_teethhappy:

That's just how strong that camo is!

It was all part of a secret German plan to disguise all their ships as houses....it will be available in the premium shop shortly...

;P

That's an excellent job those crafty Germans did camouflaging that Fiord as a house.

Too bad it didn't work for the Tirpitz.

They'd be dropping tallboys onto the ragged edge of a thatch roof.

And I'm still trying to convince myself to see the fjord. Willing my brain to see what the OP saw.

 

I'll get there...

 

It reminded me of this with the ship parked right alongside the mountainside.

The rooftop being the side of the mountain and the white side of the house being the water.

 

Honestly, I saw the camo pattern on the "ship" first and I guess that forced my mind to look at the rest of the picture as a fjord.

Oh wow!!! I see it now!!! The thatching on the roof really looks like the edge of a treeline and the siding of the house looks like very VERY calm water.

 

You're a gentleman and a scholar!

 

Wish I could give you more +1s. :Smile_honoring:
