Gorgeous place.

Oh dear a veritable breeding ground for Trolls I fear ~ an awe inspiring ravine ~ Do I sense that your time in Norway is shortly coming to an end dearest LGM ?? If so you must be very sad, but perhaps very glad to get back to your garden too ~ hey ho

Can't see very much here Amelia.

You should have stepped a little bit closer to the edge ;-))

Like it anyway. :-)

Many thanks RainoL. It's such a pity that it was snowing heavily. The views of the waterfall in this ravine and the mountains are magnificent!

Ian Stehbens on November 15, 2012

It seems that the heavy snowing is just right for this landscape, Amelia. Great mood in tune with the terrain. Inhospitable perhaps but grand nevertheless. And Nick has got it right in his excellent comment.

You will be finding a glacier soon if you keep going into the mountains in heavy snow.

All the best,


PS: I posted a photo of the eclipse for you on FB.

A foggy perfection, Amelia! Favorite! River

One of the trolls grabbed my foot in fact dear Nick. I almost stumbled but was helped by my trusty companion. He thought I had just slipped a bit. They can be such a trial for the uninitiated. ;-)

It's the family and friends that we'll be happy to get back to. The garden is going to be a big problem! But I will miss Norway so much.


Amelia Royan on November 15, 2012

What do you mean - you can't see much here Per. Surely you didn't miss all the trolls under Dorge Bru, grabbing at my hiking boots and nipping my fingers. Maybe you were too busy taking photos of Dorgefoss! Possibly you have managed inadvertently to get at least one of them in your photos. I do hope so! ;-)

I'm so pleased that you like it 'anyway'. ;-)

Amelia Royan on November 15, 2012

I think that some of the mountain areas are rapidly becoming somewhat inhospitable dear Ian, so I'll miss my glacier! Nevertheless, I have had a wonderful time in Norway, made even more special in the last 2 years by having a patient friend, hiking companion and driver who was so willing to take me almost anywhere - within reason of course. I think he just likes it when I have a sharp intake of breath at each corner, and utter the familiar words, "Oh, this is just so beautiful!"

So who took the photo of the eclipse? I thought you stayed in bed for the duration. ;-)

Warm wishes to summertime in the southern continent, Amelia

Amelia Royan on November 15, 2012

It's so lovely to see you here again dear River, and thank you so much for saving this in your gallery of favourites.

The 'foggy' look you have noticed is because it is snowing heavily and obliterating all the surrounding scenery. I had a wonderful time here. :))

Warm wishes, Amelia

This is another super picture from your snowy day out! Looking at Per's link, you wouldn't want to loose your footing near there would you :-/ I love to see pictures and weather like this...from my living room! Like. Cheers, Rosa.

Great image you can almost count the drops of rain and snow Like

Al Sanin on November 18, 2012

Splendid picture, Amelia! Great! Perfect! YSL! With a best regards AL

Amelia Royan on November 19, 2012

You would have really enjoyed the experience dear Rosa - I promise you! And there were railings to hold on to. One thing I can say about walking in Norway is, "Don't even think about wasting your money going to the hairdressers!" ;-)

Cheers, Amelia

Amelia Royan on November 19, 2012

Hi there Haggs, in fact it was all snow - of different size flakes. I have already counted all the flakes, so I'll give you a couple of weeks to come up with the answer to the nearest 100. ;-)

Best wishes to Scotland from Norway, Amelia

Amelia Royan on November 19, 2012

Many thanks again dear Al. You really are far too generous, as someone has already said, there isn't a lot to see except rocky crags and lots of pouring snow!

Friendly wishes from Norway, Amelia

Al Sanin on November 19, 2012

Hi, dear Amelia! I think the most important skill - the ability to see it!

With a warm wishes, Al
