Rain dancing

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

This week has seen some very heavy rainfall. A local town near where I live received 82mm in 90 mins. That’s a Norwegian record.

Luckily for the first week of our 4 weeks holidays I’m at home. What to do in the rain? Have fun with my weather sealed camera, and getting to know my new photo editing software have been high on my list the past few days.

Take care.

At an Exhibition

With lockdown easing here in Norway it was possible to attend an exhibition of treasures loaned to a local gallery by the closed National Gallery. There were some real Norwegian treasures to look at. A great day out.

Looks like Reindeer

I’ve traveled though an area of Norway where I know you can see wild Reindeer but, in all my 30 years here had never seen one. Today I got to see some which wandered over the road in front of my car. I got to play wildlife photographer for a few minutes before they left.

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.

Cairn

One of many thousands of cairns you can use to help find your way or note a summit while walking in the hills in Norway.

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.
