Oh, what a wonderful landscape! Here I would have expected cotton grass. Cheers, Klaus

And there was plenty of it Klaus, but I was with Adrian!! Now this is fine when I just want to shoot a landscape - but when I get down on my hands and knees, or even further, he gets impatient. My macro photos are taken when I am by myself :))

I'm so pleased you like this landscape. Unfortunately we didn't make it to the top of Bynuten, a 6 hour round trip. When the weather is a bit more settled we'll try it again :)

Cheers, Amelia

A lovely shot, Amelia, with wonderful, subtle colours and a great mix of textures on the water.

Fantastic picture greetings John.

Dear Billy, just not far from where we were, behind us, were the huge pylons supplying electricity to the nearby town of Sandnes. I thought of you and smiled at that point :))

It is peaceful, or at least it was on that day, very showery.

Greetings, Amelia

Hello John, I'm so pleased you like it. We were supposed to walk up to the top of Bynuten, not very high, but I twisted my knee not long after this. I'll try again :))

Greetings, Amelia

Hi Tonia, there are many of these lakes in the hills and mountains of Norway. I'm not a geographer, but they were probably caused by glaciation. I'm so pleased you liked this photo :)

Greetings, Amelia

Hi Keith, how right you are about the rain, it came about half an hour after this photo was taken. But when you walk in Norway, or anywhere wild as you know, you are fully prepared for any weather. We even had sun cream in the rucksack along with the space blanket :)))

I still think the Lake Disitrict and the Highlands of Scotland take some beating mind you, but I'm pleased you liked the beginning of the walk up Bynuten :)

Cheers, Amelia

Hello David, these are really only low moorland hills, but the walk is quite difficult and hard on the knees and ankles as there are so many boulders. The rain came ..... ;-)

Greetings, Amelia

It's not as spectacular as Scotland by any means here Alan, we need to get a bit further in to the heartland of Norway for that. But I'm glad you liked the photo.

The weather was very promising - it promised rain - and fulfilled its promise ;-)

Greetings, Amelia

Unseen landscape. I am wondering what the temperature was while you took this photo. Looks chilly to me because it's Norway.
