Northern Norway; a landscape photographers playground
Posted By: Fries, 09-19-2016, 03:25 PM

I have been making my annual trip to Northern Norway this august and was exploring some new terrain in the Varangerhalv°ya. A peninsula that (partly) is in the Arctic climate zone. The trip with two hikes reinforced my love for this area that is so different from my own densely populated country although my province is allright in that regard. Hope you like these.

Cheers,

Remco

1. Evening light over a small stream



2. The Komgelv river (lots of salmon and char in it)



3. A small blue tent


4. A char temporally out of the water (not a very good photo, I know...)


5. Barren mountains


6. Big country


7. Layers


8. Reindeer

sneaky, you cloned out the other reindeer :-)
Not sneaky, just rather stubborn and hard to convince sometimes... (I posted the reindeer photo first on the Dutch Pentaxian forum with a another reindeer present and removed it after comments that the photo would look much better without it.)

Thanks! I've met people who say Scotland is a lot like Norway.

I wouldn't disagree... probably it's because we're a bit less than 400 miles apart.

Ha, Orkney used to be Norway when men like Thorfinn Skull-Splitter did the whole "Norwegian Wood" thing...


O Hamlet, what a falling off was there!

That sounds like a heavy rock bands version, of an old Beatles number...

Wonderful pictures especially the first one with the longer exposure on the river. You've captured the landscape quite nicely.

Back when the continents where adrift I think Scotland was attached to Norway... But my memory of that specific event is kind of fuzzy...

Thanks for reviving some very worthwile memories! I have my next trip planned. But with some more flyfishing and perhaps a little bit less photography.
