This is the beautiful Hordaland.
Probably because I live here in Hordaland province, for me is the most beautiful place. Ha ha. I know many beautiful places in Norway, in the other provinces. All of them are nice and have some amazing, breathtaking places. Many people said, and many think, Hordaland is the best. Because it is the Gate to the Fjords. And it is true. And I love the beautiful Hordaland. For my weekend trips I have no time to explore the other provinces, Most of my trips is along Hordaland. When I start few years ago, I began from Bergen. Later I photographed the area around Bergen, close to the city. And Sotra, my big love. The last year I started exploring the distant places, even the Lofoten more than 5000 kilometres from Bergen. And I always go back with pleasure to the Hordaland. And on the picture below one more time you may see why….

Open museum in autumn mood, Damsgård
The museum is placed in bad place. Or maybe different. So close to the industrial zone in one side and the main road in other side. In the last year it was reconstructed. Few days ago, I had to be close this place, and because was so nice weather I take some walk around. Now it looks much better then year ago. Even the district around look better, I think people who lives close. like this place to walk. For other it does not exist. So far from the city, little bit covered with no place to park cars. Moreover, this is a big problem in Bergen. I think not only for Bergen. Is many nice places to visit along the city, but is no places to leave the cars.
So, this is now nice place to visit, Open museum in autumn mood. On the picture is only the part visible from the road, little bit inside is few nice reconstructed wood buildings, including the old shop and few more. In front is probably the old machine to draw out boats. Definitely worth to visit.

From Saturday on Sotra, admiring the waves.
Yes, I love Toft. Yes, I love Sotra. My special place to admiring the ocean waves. Sometimes, like in this moment everything is in the right place and moment. Even someone at the top of rocks Admiring the waves. For a moment sun gives a little colour, straight come the wave and I was on good position to shot this scene. So, I hope you will like this picture like me. More pictures is is progress. Like always when I have nothing to post I will coming back to my trips and trying to find some beautiful, but forgotten shots. Have a nice evening everywhere around the world.
Picture taken in Toft, Sotra.

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

This is obligatory place in Bergen`s autumn time.
This is Gamlehaugen park. I showed it many times, including the Gamlehaugen palace. One of the biggest accumulation of leafy trees. In the park and along the road on opposite side. On the pictures is this road with young maple trees. The spring is beautiful in whole city, but the autumn/fall is best here. The other nice place, Nygårds Park is little bit dangerous because is the place preferred by the druggy`s. In evening time I do not feel comfortably, even if I like this place. Gamlehaugen is different, placed little bit outside the city, is quiet and nice. The area around Gamlehaugen named Paradis, is the old part of the city, where lived the richest people. When I have a lot of time to spend, I try to walk along Paradis. Many nice old houses, some are like palaces. But about the park, this is obligatory place for everyone to enjoy the most colorful and nice autumn in Bergen.

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.
