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.
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…
Here is another reflection from the trip to Masfjorden.
It was amazingly calm day. Like I wrote it before we have so nice autumn in Norway this year. I like reflections, I like taking the pictures in calm days. Some of it requite better lenses. But because I tested my new camera, I used the standard lenses 18-55. I am so glad with the camera, and I am so impressed with the picture quality. My old one is now really old. It was Canon EOS 1000D. The new one is so easy to use and the touch screen let me change every settings in a second. It is like jump to the other century. Probably is many much better cameras on the market, much more expensive like my new, but I am still only the amateur and I do not think I need better one. This is about cameras.
Masfjorden is not the most visited area, it is not that spectacular like Geiranger fjord, but is also nice. I am so glad that is always many places like this with really wild nature and nice views. After this year vacation on Lofoten, I was little tired with hundreds tourist everywhere around. Here around Masfjorded is silent and nice. Quiet and lazy afternoon charge my batteries for whole week. Here is another reflection picture taken somewhere along Masfjorden. Enjoy the nice view and have a nice evening.
Many days ago I start mini series Bergen closer, next part Closer, Bergen colors
Because the autumn, because I like to walk through the city and because the colors. Autumn is the photographers favorite time, I think, colorful beauty time. This year instead summer we have beautiful, amazing autumn. I do not remember almost month without the rain and always blue sky. Autumn matures, colors changing, time goes by… Like someone said, I love photography because it capture the moment which never be back. Me too. Next year also be autumn, the colors also become, but I remember every one moments when I take photography and the moments will never happen again. Is only here and now, and the future which bring unknown. Closer, Bergen colors.
From yesterday trip, pure reflection.
I am so glad with this picture, I love it. It was amazing experience to be there in this moment. Pure reflection taken in Matre. Another my picture from the trip around Masfjorden. I hope you all had a good weekend, and you are so strong for the next week. I am…
I found it yesterday, incredible place named Hope
Yesterday I spend exploring Masfjorden area. North of Bergen, close the Hordaland – Sogn of Fjordane border line. Beautiful part along which I always only drive on my trips to the north. This time I tried to explore it, and now I know is beauty. I have to spend more time here. It is only 100 kilometers from Bergen. Because it was the first time here, most time I spend in car, driving and watching around. In afternoon after some dinner break I decide to take a short walk. I found the sign to Hope, only 1,2 km. OK. And this is what I discovered walking along the small valley with Hopsvatnet lake inside. The whole village Hope is only five houses and five barns. And is surrounded by high mountains, beautiful with its autumn dress. Incredible place named hope with silent.
The picture was taken from the road and including reflection in the lake. I like the specific autumn light. Is short and so intensive. But it gives amazing effect. So, this place and many other places in this area is worth to be back and spend some time to explore it. In the next few days I will show you more pictures. Because the weather was so nice, sunny and warm, the pictures are fine. Stay with me and have a good Sunday…
Between autumn and winter in Hardanger.
I love Hardanger and Hardangerfjord. Many amazing places along it. Few of them I alredy show you here on my blog, many other still waiting for my visit. Because Hardanger is the Norwegian fruit center, in autumn season along the roads is many places with stands to bay fruits, straight from the orchard. Fantastic apples and pears. It is one of many reason why I always, every year drive through Hardanger. The picture below was taken on one of that place. I thought it is nice composition. The bus stop with the trees already colored by autumn and the Folgefonna glacier on the mountains on other side Hardangerfjord. So any question, why I like it? Between autumn and winter.
