Nawitka on June 23, 2008

Love all of these, but this one is especially nice! Well done!

Joerg, All the world is fantastic, Norway is another planet.

This is just a modest attempt to capture the magnificent beauty of this wild and windswept land, formed over countless millions of years.

I was very fortunate to catch a little of its magic.

Even now Nawitka, the image of this particular moment in time is etched deeply into my memory.

There can be few places on earth to equal the stark contrast between the depth of the ocean and the highest snow-capped pinnacles.

I so much appreciate your visit and kind comments guys.

Jim, we must thank you for etching this image in our minds. With out your sharing (and the capture) it would be a moment in time etched in your memory alone!

Warm Regards

In the life, I believe it's always moved from the light...

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on July 1, 2008

Like all life, nothing stays the same and the light, the beautiful light, was always changing

Thankyou for your reflective thoughts lavieorange

Dear Jim, sorry to ramble on so, but your lovely photos are making my fingers tap this evening and I can't help but come out with this little poem which speaks of the scene to me....

Mighty surge and swell of ocean, Rolling,scored by icy fissures, Crashed against the soaring peaks in motion sweeping, dark and vicious!

Dark and bitter depths of seas, Born frigid from the biting cold, Strike shards of mountains such as these, Tumbled... swept.. by powers untold...

Still there above the splintered shore Each craggy ridge lies domineering, Cloaked with spangled white of snow.. A mist of golden vapour, clearing...

I wonder if that is what they mean to you, or have I got it totally wrong, having no reference to Norway, except that which you have shown me in your photos...

Must go! Time to get some beauty sleep. Time travels at warp speed once you sit at a computer, doesn't it?

cheers, Sue

Please Sue , feel free to ramble on all you want. I feel a sense of achievement having drawn your interest and then getting a response full of inspiration and appreciation. After all, that is the whole point of posting stuff here. Not every one though has the talent or desire to submit their thoughts and feelings so poetically as you have done.

Your wonderfully composed poem captures the spirit and mood of this magnificent country so well. I think you must have a little Nordic blood running through your veins

I can relate your imaginative vision to what my eyes witnessed. It proves beyond doubt that panoramio is a wonderful platform on which the foundation of friendship, knowledge, and experiences can be shared.

Ah yes, the time flies and this ever so compelling hobby will consume ever more of this precious commodity. How you find the time with 6 children beats me. Well done.

We'll chat again Sue. Best wishes.

Great wild nature-landscape with a beautiful light!

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on September 12, 2008

Forgive my inability to type the Danish characters correctly Orner for I have much to learn about the nuances of the computer. (I am a little too long in the tooth or some would say, 'one foot in the grave')

I appreciate your visit and nice comments. I must also add that Norway was, for me, a great experience.


Antonio Cristerna on January 2, 2010

Fantastic!!!, yes, you are totally right. I love the ocean since long time a go ...

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on January 2, 2010

I cant think of any where else I would rather be Antonio..Nowhere can one enjoy such a sense of freedom, a feeling of destiny and domain exactly!!

Thanks for stopping by ;>)

Kind regards
