Some from many Autumn trees in Eksingedalen
That was amazing walk through the Eksingedalen. Warm, sunny, little clouds and so many objects to take a photo. The autumn trees looks fine with the sky in background. Do you think so? I love the clean mood on this picture. Many good greetings to all of you.
Because I decide to change my Instagram account to the Gallery for Scandinavia Lovers, I want to invite you all to watch it – @everydaybergen
Everyday dose of picture taken in Scandinavia by many good photographers or only people with passion. At this moment our group including 12 persons and I still look for new. Some of the picture I present here on blog, but I cannot share this posts with link to Instagram. If I try the picture does not load. I work on it, but probably I will need help from more experienced people. Maybe some from You could help with this problem.

After short break this is our next step inside Eksingedalen
This year I decide to visit the different part of the valley. Last year we take ride from Nesheim to the Dale. This year we take ride to other part.Because the first part we traveled last year is surrounded by high mountains from the south side, is dark in afternoon. This part is much more sunny. We leave our car few hundreds meters after Gullbrå, very small village between the mountains. It was just a six or seven houses. Nice quiet place. From there we take walk to the Grøndalsvatnet. It was a small mountain lake, now when the new dam was built, it will be the big drinking water reservoir. Our next step inside Eksingedalen
Photo below was taken straight from the place where we leave the car, somewhere along the Eksingedalen valley

At the bottom of this beautiful valley presented yesterday standing the church. In the middle of green meadow, surrounded by gravestones. Is beautiful because is small and white. Around is so many autumn colors. Mountains around are gold and red. The trees are multicolored, from still green pine to gold, yellow, red birch. Close water are blue and reflect the sky with white clouds. Only the gravestones are grey. This is natural composition enough to be painted by some new Monet. I know is hard to imagine the view, but believe me is real. I walked a little between the gravestones, I like this small graveyard mood. Even in paradise people are dying. It was a little break before the next step. I think even the picture of the church is little unbelievable. This is Nesheim church.
Have a nice afternoon and evening. Enjoy the nice fall mood and good weather, if you have the same like we in Norway.

Nesheim, place lost between mountains
This is the view from the road to Nesheim. Looks like paradise, it is paradise. Small valley between the mountains. One road, but everything you need is here. Boundless silence, space, green meadows, forest, river, waterfalls and amazing beautiful lake or rather river pool. What do you need more to be happy? I like to stop on the road which leads down to the village and watch on this beauty around. The silence around is paralyzing. There is not many cars on the road, but when some coming I hear it from few kilometers. What do you think about the view I present on the picture below? Nesheim, place lost between mountains. Do you want more…?

Road to Eksingedalen
Beautiful small, narrow road between Evanger and Nesheim. The first few kilometers leads through the deep valley along small river. The second part of this road leads up through the serpentine with many dangerous curves, most of them 180 degrees, crazy drive. On the top is view point where you may stop and watch the valley and the serpentine you drive. Nice view. It was a lot of morning fall fogs in the valley, amazing view. The third part of this roads leads through the top of the mountains and this is unforgettable ride. I do not know how it looks in other seasons. In winter time the road may be closed. I saw the barriers. In early fall time like now this is dangerous for the driver. Because the head are turning around, so many nice beauty, amazing rock formations around. All of them are covered by the moss and grass which are gold now. In little cloudy day, I wish myself to sit here for few hours and watch the shadow spectacle on the gold cover. I am not sure I get another chance this season, maybe the next one. After my second visit here, I am still think this is one of the most beautiful places around me. Worth to visit more often.
The picture below shows only the small part of the road, but you may imagine how it looks in reality. Road to Eksingedalen

I am so proud to present Eksingedalen today
My last visit here was around one year ago. What I saw today it was amazing, again. Eksingedalen is an unique valley high between the mountains. It is overgrown with leafy trees, at most 70 – 80 percent with the birch. At this time of the year the colors smite. For the next few days I will present the view from every possible directions. Is it worth to watch it. This time I explore the different direction the last year. The walk finished on Grøndalsvatnet, fantastic mountain lake, unfortunately it is under reconstruction. Low level of water and work on the dam. Unfortunately, but the view along our walk to the lake and back compensate it. If you want like me, submerge in the sea of yellow, green and red colors – stay with me through the next few days and more…
On the picture below I present some play with light, rocks, water and sky, taken on some brook near the lake.

It`s time to leaving Oldedalen
It was short trip, just one and half day, with so many nice memories and pictures. Here on blog it takes a lot of time to present the most beautiful pictures. I have many more I do not forget to present it on some bored winter time. Both the valleys Lodalen and Oldedalen are friendly place and maximum beautiful. Like I wrote it before, Lodalen is probably one of the most beautiful place I saw in Norway. And now is time to leaving Oldedalen too. After a walk to the glacier through the amazing waterfall, we take some break time for dinner on the open camping close the road and the today`s picture was taken from this place. It present the end of the valley with visible the rest of some other glacier. If you zoom this picture, You may see the glacier is already in two different parts, and many small waterfalls transport down water from it. Yes, this is for today, have a nice evening everywhere you are now…

This what You see is the sad remnants from the glacier
In the last two posts I wrote about glacier disappearing and now the picture which shows the sad remnants. The beautiful waterfalls and the nice emerald lake not exult when I see it. I think even this small tongue disappear maybe in the next year. Exactly when I watch on it some big part broke off and falls down. Sad to see it. In the next few year to reach some glaciers in Norway I have to climb up to the high mountains. But I will. Norway is still beautiful and is many places to discovery by me. Five years in Norway is only beginning. I hope You all be with me in my expeditions in the future, and like always You will give me the power watching my blog. Thank You All.

The first view on glacier from the path.
After longer stop at the waterfall, is time to go up again. It was not so difficult path, everything is done for the people and to be easy. On the little bridge over the river is the first place to take a view on the glacier. Many signs and information board showing the interesting places along the path. The most sad signs inform about where the glacier was 200 and 100 years ago. Everybody have to see it. So many people discuss about climate change, about the global warming and many other fashion topics. Here in Oldedalen I saw by my eyes how big is the problem and how fast this process runs. Sad sad sad. And some picture for You. First view on glacier with lomo effect.
Now you see this place and I give you information, less than 100 years ago this place was under the glacier. Do you imagine now, how fast it runs…

The pearl of Oldedalen, Kleivafossen
It is not enough to say it is beautiful. Best time to watch it is of course summer. It rich the maximum power in summer. Is fed by the melting glacier Brikdalbreen and this is why is also known under the name Briksdalfossen. How fast the glacier melting down you may imagine yourself when you see the power waterfall transporting 10 000 liters of water in every one second. The path to the glacier leads through the small bridge so close to the waterfall, and it is so easy to feel the power. Everyone walking through the bridge is wet. Even the passengers of the special small trip cars. And yes, this is wort to walk this way. Opportunity to see it from different direction and take the picture if you find some dry place. Below I present the picture taken from three different points. I hope you will like it. The path was built by the farmers between 1927 and 1928. It was a hard work. Respect for them.
Below the picture is link to the short video taken by me. Enjoy it also…
