great capture! Favorite

Thanks for help, Not easy to rember all places where photos are taken in your beatiful country

On the easternmost edge of Norway, at about 31 degrees east, Vardø is east of Istanbul in Turkey and a little west of Alexandria in Egypt. This again means that this is where the sun rises the earliest in Norway. With the exeption, of course, that it does not rise at all during about 2 months of deep winter darkness.Vardø is situated about 300 km (200 miles) north of the Arctic circle.

Hello Rilhendr, Great contact. My family's great, great, great grandmother walked from here to Vadsø in Norway,about 600 km. Her name was Maria Kaisa Keranen, and for the church protocols she said that she had grown up at this Keranen farm. Wonderful story! Contact me on email: leinmathisen10@gmail.com

Hei Gunn Eva. Jo, du vet at vi som bare tilfeldig ser bygget, ser det vaktre i konstruksjonen, vi vet om alt livet som en gang har blitt opplevd gjennom disse veggene, vinduene og gangdøra, men vi har ikke det samme kjærlige forholdet til det som dere. Likevel vekker bygget gode minner også i oss. Kanskje mer enn for dere som gjennom forfallet også ser tiden gå og forlate oss. Men det er jo en verdi i å dele minner gjennom en slik gammel vakker bygning. Hilsen Ivar

beautiful light! Like

Pr 2013 er disse gamle, fargerike bygningene borte. Synd.

HI "Other", This was about 1 hour before midnight. It turned out this was a place where (wild) campers and people with tents would go, watch the setting sun and then the rising sun a couple of hours later. Sometimes the sea fog comes in from the north and makes for a mystique as the mountains around you and gradually all the landscape is enveloped in a soft woolen curtain of sheer nothing. Great place.

This is an everyday event in every little town in northern Norway. Reindeer are mostly free to go where they want, and unless your garden is well fenced in, there is probably not much of a garden left at all. The animals are not big enough to present any danger to people, and are completely harmless. You may get as close as 20-40 yards/ meters before they will normally run away. In the fall, the big males tend to be protective of their females, and may seem aggressive.

Hei Per o Joda, riktig slutning. Jeg snirklet meg nedover kanten av høgjæren, fra Ganddal til Ogna traktene. Veldig fin tur, masse nye interessante motiv under veis. Liker både kulturlandskap, gamle rare hus og levende miljø. Men skulle gjerne ønske at programmet hadde tillatt litt folk i bilene.
