I have given the colours a tiny boost and lighten the shadows in the foreground. To the left you can barely see an old lighthouse

Obrestad lighthouse on the south/western coast of Norway. Built in 1873 and electrified in 1917. It became fully automated in 1982 and unmanned since 1991. It was electrified in 1917.

During WWII the Germans fortified this area and four 100mm canons was installed in may 1941. Today you can still see the remainings of two gun emplacement.Originally the beacon was installed on the west side of the building,but the Germans build a lager tower on the east side and the beacon was installed here after the war. The building was the command bunker for this fortress.

Storevatnet, Andrevatnet, Tredjevatnet og Fjerdevatnet. I bakgrunnen til venstre, Trollkyrkja, Blåbretinden og Skardrabben like ved midten. Råna til høyre, i bakgrunnen mellom Skardrabben og Råna ser man Brunstadhornet.. Prinsessesteinen er et stykke ovenfor Fjerdevatnet.

 

Jeg hadde aldri sett så lite snø i Riksheimdalen.

 

Etter år senere var det enda mindre, da var nesten all snø over Fjerdevatnet borte: www.flickr.com/photos/ystenes/6199456410

 

I 2013 var praktisk talt all snø borte over Fjerdevatnet, tre av de fire små dammene var fri og den fjerde nesten helt fri. Det var ingen snø i skaret, og heller ingen snø på passet over til Tranndal. All snøen mellom Storevatnet og Andrevatnet var også borte:

Utsikten fra Synnavindsnipa er en av Sykkylvens vakreste, men pass på: Turen opp har et punkt som man ikke skal prøve seg på hvis man ikke er veldig fjellvant. Stien gjennom et skar på østsiden av toppen er bratt og har løse steiner, og det ender sannsynligvis fatalt hvis man sklir utfor her. Jeg vet at mange har snudd når de har kommet til dette punktet.

 

Google-Earth-bildet fra dette området ble tatt vel 2 uker senere.

A lot of rain can sometime be a "pain", but it creates some lovely waterfalls.

En spesiell stein innenfor Storevatnet i Regndalen.

 

Steinen skiller seg ut med mange markerte striper på tvers (vises på bildet) samt ovenfra og ned (sees forfra, men ikke her fra siden). Sammen gir de steinen en firkantet form og et rutete preg.

 

Men mest spesiell er steinen fordi Huldra klatret i den.

 

Det er mange rare steiner i ura, men Huldresteinen er både den største og den mest markante. Huldresteinen ligger dessuten litt for seg selv, foran nesten alle de andre, så man legger merke til den når man går forbi her.

 

Ikke rart at det var denne steinen Huldra valgte seg ut.

Store Trolltind. Sett fra E39, øst for Molde

30 sec exposure. Located sw of Norway, Ølberg harbor is today a small fishing harbor. During WW2 the Germans fortified the harbor with an observation bunker, trenches, shelters and anti-aircraft positions. You can see the observation bunker to the left. The concrete structure to the right is the beginning of the breakwater. The orange light is caused by the numerous greenhouses in the area.

Looking at the direction to "Oslo". Another part of the abandoned railway. The weather was on an off as indicated by the skies here.

Andenes.

Winter storms and bad weather, with the sun shining through the clouds.

 

Captured with Pentax K-5 and DA10-17mm fisheye lens.

  

Buerbreen is an outlet of the large Folgefonna glacier.Folgefonna is the 3rd largest glacier in Norway. In 2006 it was 207 sqm and 375m thick. Unfortunately it's shrinking like due to higher temperatures. I will try to come bace later this year to have a look without all the snow. I couldent walk closer with all that snow, couse glaciers can be rather temperamental.

Captured right behind my house in the beautiful town of Andenes.

Looking down 408 meters below to photograph the view.

Much like her father in many ways :camera:

My 8-year old at the top of mt.Måtind, one of the most beautiful mountain hikes in Norway.

Captured late in the evening, Sunday 03.November 2013.

 

Andøy, Norway.

 

Aurora danced all over the skies, an astonishing experience.

I never get bored of watching these colors and patterns...

An amazing calm fjord. In the background you can barely get a glimpse of the glacier, Folgefonna.

Photographed at Andøya Air Show 2017.

It`s all about the timing, finding the right moment.

In 1894 it was decided to build a railway between Christiania(now Oslo) and Bergen strait crossing the mountains. It was to become the most challenging railroad project in Europe at that time. Before the work on the railroad itself could begin, a road to bring in materials had to be build. The transports started from Voss, Flåm and Geilo and during the summer season hundreds of horses with goods traveled daily into the mountains. Approximately 2400 men were busy building the railroad. Most of the workers were foreigner and were called Rallar. The word has swedish origin and means wheelbarrow, but in Norway it was used as a common name on freelance construction workers. The railroad (Bergensbanen) was officially opened by King Haakon on 27th of november 1909. 493 km long, with 73 km of tunnels divided on 182 tunnels. Today the construction road bear the name Rallarvegen as in "The construction workers road" and is a very popular bicycle og hiking road.

From this view you can see part of this road and with a couple of cyclists on it. We are now about 10km into the mountains with only 72km left. And the rain was on it's way.

After a photo session for a family, I noticed one of the kids playing with sand and rushed to get this capture.

 

Pentax K-5.

This capture is from Sunnylvsfjorden in Norway.

  

It's from a beautiful june morning and shot while cruising to Hellesylt and later the so famous Geiranger and Geiranger fjord.

Today we had General election in Norway.

The result was very blue indeed.

 

So it feels natural to post a picture taken this evening that symbolize the color of The Conservative Party.

 

Not to honor them. Just because mother nature decided this was tonight`s color.

 

Captured in Andenes, Norway.

What you see here is the old town of the Norwegian city Stavanger.

One our way home. And the weather is ofc getting better and better. This is shot on the drive, passing the glacier Hardangerjøkulen, witch we have seen earlier. And with this photo I hereby end this trip. Thank you for following.

This view is what I see every day from work. I don't complain

3 places in the Lærdal tunnel there are large halls with special lighting. This is done to break up the monotonous experience it is to drive through 24509 meters of tunnel and to offer a chance to turn around safly if you need to.

During our cruise to Norway we walked through the wonderful old parts of Stavanger.

Early morning and I have a bad feeling. All the clothes are now dry, but this doesn't promise something good. Luckily we are going the other way, so fingers crossed. This is a view from Finsehytta by the way.

Tandstad, Sykkylven, Sunnmøre, Norway Norge

 

From the hill Gjerdekollen on the other side of the Sykkylvsfjorden fjord.

Hallingskeid at 1110 m. The railway station is to the left, out of the picture. "Famous" for several fires. In october 1960 the buildings and 500 meters of the cover protecting the rails from snow, burned to the ground. 4 families lost their homes that day. In 2008 it happened again and the last fire occurred in June 2011 when a snow cover took fire and a train drove into the fire and burned down. Thankfully nobody was injured.

Sognefjellet is the highest mountain pass in northern Europe, with its highest point of 1434 meters above sea level. In the old days it was used for trade traffic. Salt and fish went eastwards. Butter, dirt and leather were shipped westward. Sognefjellet is a national tourist road open only during the summertime. If you travel here you can be almost certain to find some snow to play with.

Not the best composition, but it was freezing cold and the camera was packed away and with gloves it takes some time to get ready. And by then, the sledge had moved quite a bit:-)

Not as much visitet by tourit as Flåm, Aurland is stil a beautiful and peaceful place. This boat symolyses the qouet life in this little town compare to the gigant cruiseship in Flåm.Not as much visited by tourist as Flåm, Aurland is still a beautiful and peaceful place.

Geiranger seen from Flydalsjuvet on a rainy day. Norway.

The mountains on the left and right are about 1300 meters high.

 

Behind the left mountain is a lake called Skagedalsvatnet.

Captured in Andøy for the lovely couple in the pictures.

Used an external flash bounced into an umbrella on a stand on their right (obviously) and by using what was available of natural light in their background, I came up with this shot :)
