Long light

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.

Snow road – on the top

Snow Road is the old road between Aurdal and Lærdal. From the year 2000 when the world longest tunnel (24,5 km ) between the two cities was opened, this is only the tourist attraction. In the middle of summer the snow still exist, and I can not imagine how it looks in the middle of winter time.

The Names made from stone. Some people like to leave the signs on earth

Stegastein

This is an spectacular View Point at 650 meter above the fjord. It is situated close to the old National Tourist Road between the Lærdal and Aurland. This road name is The Snow Road. The view is of course so spectacular in every kind of weather. On the picture, like You see, is a cloudy time, but later I will present some pictures taken in sunshine.
