I really like to watch the clouds on the top of mountain. Do You also?
Mountains are dangerous in every kind of weather. Mountain are for the people with imagination. Norwegian mountains are not so high. The highest one is only 2469 m. But in combination with the specific west Norwegian weather gives unforgettable views. Mostly cloudy and wet weather with the clouds wrapped around tops shows the mountain power. Blue and clean sky is so bored, but walking through the mountains and hills and watching the always changing views is big pleasure. For me of course. I love it. I love the mountain power. The picture below was taken in Gudvangen on the last trip. It was taken from the bottom of the Gudvangen valley.
I hope you will like both of them, the color and black and white.
Have a nice Sunday…
Viking village under construction before the season.
Like I wrote it last time, here comes the next tourist attraction – Viking village replica. Now before the season it is under construction. But I love the view on the Gudvangen valley from this side. Many season signs on this one picture. Snow on the top of mountain, construction in the middle of the valley and colorful kayak rental square almost ready for the visitors. On this picture and on the one from last post I love the color element which break the view.
So, enjoy the next nice view from Gudvangen under construction before the season.
Visiting Gudvangen is always pleasure.
It was a nice, sunny and warm second day of Easter. But is still dangerous to visit some place in Norway, even here in Hordaland. Better do not try before middle of May. Fortunately Aurland is places close to the main road and is available whole year. It is one of the place I like to visit.
It is a small village, where people change the tour buses to cruise ships to enjoy the beauty of Nærøyfjorden. One of the most beautiful place on Earth. Probably the local government want to keep the people little bit longer, they decide to build some replica of Viking village. It will be nice, but now it is under construction. I am not sure when it will be available. I think it is good idea. It was so sad to watch on this village, which looks like abandoned and the biggest and living place was the big parking for the tour buses.
Another attraction is Kayak rental. I will try this summer to rent the kayak and enjoy the beauty fjord by myself. Visiting Gudvangen is always big pleasure for me.
Like you may see on the picture below, there is still lot of snow in the mountain.
In this time of the year the light is long
The sun is far away. Days are short, and the rays of the sun are long. This is specific time when You live between the mountains.
Some north mountainsides have not a light at all. On the picture is example, like looks the beautiful Flåm harbour in this time. When You compare it with relative picture from summertime, you will see the difference. The picture was taken around 2 pm. It is mean the long light.
Winter in Aurland
This is the view from Stegastein. Winter in Aurland is spectacular, same like the wide view from Stegastein. So I do not have enough lenses to show You it, You have to believe me.
This is far trip from Bergen to drive there and back in one short winter day. 180 kilometres, and the dark coming around 3 pm, but it is worth to try it. The spectacular views all around in Aurland, compensates the effort. Have a nice trip.
Image from bad tale.
Playing with my new texture software. Now when is dark and rainy outside, I have a lot of time. And because I like the bad and dark tales, I create this dark image. Some from You may know and remember the original picture, and if you want to share Your opinion please write me something. Do You like it? What do You think about it?
Because the Gudvangen Tunnel was closed, I was try to enjoy maximum from this trip. This was only one way to do it. A few kilometres ahead between the meadows and some animals walking through the road, to Bakka. Small, verey small village at the end of the road. This is Bakka. But the view – amazing. This is the Heritage Nærøfjorden. A piece of the most beautiful landscape.
