Picture from somewhere in Hordaland
Saturday is the good time to posts more than one post. For whole week I was so busy and I have some arrears. On my ways through the Hordaland I took thousands of photos. Only the best I post on blog, but when I look in to the archive later, I still see some nice pictures. Of course I know where it was taken and the folders are described, but I am not always want to write again about this places. Then, the title “Somewhere” is OK. This was on the North part of Hordaland on some autumn trip. So this is, Somewhere in Hordaland.

From yesterday around Modalen short trip
I like Modalen. My trips always ended in this small village. Sometimes I drove the way to Dale, or from Dale to Mo. This time I tried to drive little bit far through the valley. And I discover many nice places to visit it again. I do not brought many pictures from that trip. The reason was weather. Of course I checked the weather report before I start, and it shows a little snow. I did not know that little snow means 10 to 20 cm of snow in some places in mountain and dark sky. It was crazy drive. Mostly in car. So, before the next trip to this valley, I have wait for better weather. Probably til spring.
Below I present one picture to show you the mood. Yesterday around Modalen, in the snow under the dark sky.

My Saturday Sotra trip.
The fantastic autumn weather is now gone. Now days are grey and wet. But not so cold. After busy and tired week, today I take the trip on my love Sotra. Today is windy and this was a good time to visit again Toft. Short reminder. Not so far from Toft still exist the rests from the Wave Power Station. I do not know why this project is finished and destroy. But it is amazing place to walk and watch the ocean waves, And to watch how nature take back the terrain. It is one of my best place on Sotra. I feel good in this place. Not so difficult to reach, not so high rocks and beautiful view around. Turøy island on the left side, Ono island and many small islands on right side. And of course the open ocean straight ahead. Like I wrote it was windy today and the waves was so big and nice. Ocean was restless.
On the picture below is the view for two rock hills taken from the road. In the place where you see the wave was situated the Power Station.

From Myrkdalen, mountain cottage
This is some most photographed motive from Norway. The cottages are everywhere. Many of the on seaside. In the mountains is lot of private cottages, the name in Norwegian is Hytta. For example driving through the Kvamskogen, it is festival of cottages. From small one room inside without water and sometimes even without electricity for the big, similar to the small palaces. Myrkdalen is famous ski place and around the ski roads is hundreds cottages. This are the place I do not like a lot. Driving far, in between the wild mountains, the cottages are placed not often. This one is at the end of this valley, straight before the road start climbing up. I think it looks nice with the autumn colors in backside. I hope you like it too… Mountain cottage

This is the beautiful autumn time
Probably everyone who used camera love autumn. There is no better season for taking beautiful landscape photography. This weekend I am little bit busy, cannot take any trip. I am angry, because I think about all this nice places around me, I think about the view high in the mountain. So, I am not the professional photographer, I do not earn money from this. I am only the passionate with camera and sometimes I have earn some additional money from my job. I hope next weekend will be nice and sunny. Today I present some wider view taken from Gamlehaugen park in Friday. This beautiful place always give me few minutes break. I like to stop here without reason when I drive close it. Like to see some people who have nothing else to do, just walking around park and enjoy the view. So, here it is… beautiful autumn

From the last trip to Myrkdalen, mountain colors.
I know you like the colors. Me too. It was a nice experience to be in the valley with short autumn light. In autumn and winter many valleys are dark. Because the sun is low and mountains high. But it gives fantastic light and shadow effect for photographers. I like it. Is already little cold in mountains. Ground in Myrkdalen valley was so cold and hard. Yes, winter is coming slowly. Enjoy my view. Mountain colors in Myrkdalen valley.

From my weekend trip, autumn color in the sun.
This weekend trip direction, Myrkdalen. This is the big center of winter sports. I visited it before, when everything is under construction. Yes it looks nice and probably it is nice place to ski. But I am looking for something different, I am looking for nice view and nature and landscape, and I am so surprised with what I found here. It looks like a place I have to visit more times. Today one of the first shot in the end of the valley, before I drive up to the mountains. Enjoy the autumn colors in the sun. Myrkdalen.

It is pleasure driving along Norway.
I may say it is pleasure and it is dangerous. Pleasure because the view and dangerous because the view. Sounds funny. In many many places the view from the road is so amazing and (even if it`s many places to stop and enjoy the view) in many other places is not possible to stop. I have saved on my map a lot of places I will want to enjoy and photograph, but it is difficult. The shot from the car is not always good enough to present. In some of that palaces I try to take a trip and find good position walking and climbing. Some other are still on my wish list. Probably the life is too short to do it everything. But driving along Norway is so nice. The most annoying is to meet on the road some driver who drive slowly and trying to enjoy the view.
Ok, this is one of the place on the road E16 I wanted to photograph. In the last five years I drove this way around hundred times. Because E16 is the road with big traffic and in this place everybody driving minimum 80 km per hour, the time for reaction is short. This is Osterøy, visible from other side of fjord. This is the wild part of Osterøy island. It looks like long rock wall vertical to the water. It is nice in every season, but like you may see on the picture balow, in autumn time is amazing.

From the trip to Masfjorden, reflection and shadow
I like to visit the same places in different time. It always shows something different. In this place, Matre, I only take some break last year. Probably I drove back from some trip around Sognefjorden. From the road it was looking like nice place. And of course I was so surprised. So, this year I visit this place again. Also was calm weather and amazing reflection on Masfjorden water. But this time I was there early in the day, and the light was different.
Here is the picture from Last year:
And here is what I saw this year. Reflection with shadow.
Have a great Friday evening, and be back tomorrow…
