At the end of narrow Nærøyfjord, in small but nice town Gudvangen. The scenery around is like from dark ages. I was there few times, but of course I prefer the cloudy and dark days. In the sunny days it looks like another popular tourist place. When is cloudy and dark it looks like scenery to imagine the feelings and life of Vikings. The long boat is placed close to the haven and it is a part of small museum.
In the top of summer heat, it is a noisy place. Lot of tourists from whole world. In fall it became quiet place with restaurant open only when the ship arrive. In this time I like to sit dawn here and think about how hard was life in this place before civilization with dynamite came here.
Like You see on the picture, it was my best weather. Vikings Long Boat. Greetings from Gudvangen
Every time when I plan new trip to Odda Valley, I am excited. This is an amazing place. The other name is The Valley Of 7 Waterfalls. Special time is of course in autumn, after few rainy days. The waterfalls are big and look little bit dangerous. The Power.
But there is not only the waterfalls. High mountains around and lazy water in between. Perfect combination to take a really nice pictures. Because the water in this place is not so deep, it is calm on the top. Sun, water, mountains and the reflection. Probably this winter time I will try to take a next trip. I have never been there in winter. Over the city Odda is, on the glacier is the Winter Sport centre. I have to visit it.
Weather was bit better today, but now comes the cold. Frosty.
This picture shows how complicated is sometimes the Norwegian terrain. To visit each other, they have to walk approximately 6 to 10 kilometres. Or just swim 50 meters. Funny. This is Fjord thumbnails on Sotra, Golta.
From Here to the horizon. Kingdom of Stones, Sotra.
I love the kilometres of stones and puddles, because I like to stay lonely for some moments. Sotra is an ideal place to find myself. To be connected with my mind. To be separate from all media, social media, from everything. Just me, the wind, the rocks, the puddles and freedom. I like the stones, I like to watch on stones I know they are here for thousands years, always washed by the rain and ocean waves. Some sort of plant trying to live here, but at all it is the kingdom of stones. Lovely place for me.
Many of You knows, I love Sotra, and I trying to be there every time I can.
It looks like the weather will change for the next few days, even the snow may come. I will try to take some new pictures for You. Have nice evening.
Summer in Norway is beautiful, at all. I love the dark green colours, I love all the clouds, and the friendly temperature. Just few kilometres away from the city is silent and amazingly nice. Even the few kilometres. Andvik, the small city far, far away. When I am inn, I think the time stopped. Lazy time spent on watching the small ferry runs through the fjord. This picture was taken from small bar terrace, ideal for lazy cap of coffee.
