It was almost the end of my short and first trip through the Balestrand. This is shot from the ferry back to the other side of Sognefjord. On the other side the road again climb to the top of the mountains, again snowy time. I am so glad, I discover this places. Many times before I thought about this trip, but always was something else to do or to visit. To really explore this area I will need to take a longer trip. For few days. Will be nice to climb some mountains and photograph the view from top. From this place Sognefjord, the longest fjord, start to be really interesting and full of nice views. It is not so far to the Aurland, but we are in Balestrand again. One of the nice view I present on my picture below. Taken from ferry with wide angle lens. Enjoy it and have a nice Sunday. Here in Bergen is still rainy. Probably this is the most wet June ever….
So, at the end I bought some filters to my camera. I have read little about camera settings and I drove on Sotra to try it in practice. I am not sure it is even visible on this picture, but the camera was set on 30 seconds. Water and sky looks different, but I think I need learn a lot. It was a grey day with strong wind, without rain. Clouds moved fast and with this part of the picture, I am so glad. Not sure about water. Grey time. Bad weather in long exposure.
When I get some practice, I will try to photograph the most beautiful and the ordinary waterfalls from Hordaland. Of course in Long time exposure. And I hope you will like it.
I am busy now before vacation, and it looks like I will be busy even after the vacation. It is also the reason why I do not post for long time. In my archive is a lot of nice pictures from the trip around Balestrand and from few other places I visited in the last time. Some are very nice and I hope they soon be visible here. Thank you to all who still visiting my blog. Thank you to all my friend. I hope you all have a good time now.
So, this is June in Balestrand. Hard to believe. Two times through the road number 13 I had a chance to enjoy snow. Once in Balestrtrand, which you may see on the picture, second time after crossing Sognefjord between Vikøy and Myrkdalen. I have never been there before, and it was good time to explore this part. I think I have to try once more in the summer time, but for more than only one day. Crazy drive. Long one day trip, 460 kilometers, mostly driving, with short breaks just for to take some photo. From morning to evening. But I love it. The scene on the picture is probably very popular scene and many people stop here. This is Nystølvatnet and now in the beginning of June is still frozen.
The touristic season in Norway is already start. Through the road I met many cars from Deutschland and Netherlands. Probably most of them is driving to the North part. Campers rules on the roads to North. I would like some day to drive the same road slowly, without time limit.
Have nice time and enjoy the June view from Balestrand.
