Late September……. Norway


No reason to post this image other then to remind me of a early morning, in late September.  Arriving at  Haholmen Island, following a short drive along the Atlantic Road, Northern Norway.

Nice to recall happier days

Evening late September…..


Kristiansund, Norway

The tourist season was over, the town was quiet, and in the evening light it was so tranquil.  Best time of the day.

A day that was not over yet for one lone fisherman…


Remember to keep your distance…

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Clouds


Norwegian Sunset.

Seems rather a strange subject to choose for this weeks nominated topic for Cees B&W Photo Challenge on Clouds.  But this last October we had a fabulous cruise to Northern Norway and with the exception of one afternoon the skies were as they say ‘Gin Clear’ Blue skies.  The bonus was that every day were blessed with some fabulous sunsets and sunrises as clouds moved in for the night and vanished in the mornings. So here is a selection which might or might not work in mono…



Then of course on one sparkling clear night we had a wonderful display of the Aurora Borealis…. not strictly clouds but rather special Solar Powered Clouds…


So have fun and join in Cees Challenge.  The link to here blog is:-
