Mountain in the snow

This is one from August last year. Taken while I was visiting Svalbard. I never have much success with landscapes However, I like how this one looked and have decided to share it with you. It was taken while standing on the tarmac of the airport runway. So real deep thought went into it was just a trail run so to speak.

Lærdal

One of my favourite places in Norway is the village of Lærdal in the West Country. A lot of the village burnt down a few years ago. Luckily., if you can call it that, it was mostly the modern area that suffered.

I don’t know about you, but I often take a picture that I wonder what appealed to me at the time.What caught my eye. I think I’ve seen some sort of shot before and there is this flash of recognition and I try to record the image I have seen in my head.
It maybe the lines in the shot the way the windows and the wooden doors contrast with the brickwork. Or maybe it’s a kind of symmetry my mind eye sees…I’ve no idea what it is this shot it just appeals to me.

Borgund Stavkyrje

As promised last week, here is a picture of the whole church, all wood and almost black with age. This church has survived with the least amount of alteration. Throughout Europe there where some 1000 wooden churches built this is one of the 28 left.
Fun fact: If you come from the village you can get married here.

Like Dragons in the air

Norway is known for it’s wooden churches. This one in Borgund is no exception It dates back to 1183 but the timber used was felled in 1180. My picture shows just some small details of the roof against a stormy sky. I’ll share some shots going forward of the whole building. Until next time…stay safe.

This is actually close up and personal with a copy of a diving suit designed by Leonardo Da Vinci. Rather apt for these strange days we are living in.

I saw this old oil can in the workshop at Kistefos. I just had to take a shot of it in the sunlight from the window. It was just left there ready to use.

Another favourite from our trip to Kistefos this wonderful sculpture by IIya Kabakov.
I must say that I can identify with this sculpture, more than I would like to admit.
