Any Pentaxians in Norway?

Hello,

I have been using this forum for roughly 2 years now since I've started photography. Now it seems I will be moving to Norway for a while, job related stuff. I will be based in Stavanger... was wondering if there are any Pentaxians fellows around? I'm very excited about this Norway assignment and I look forward to take a lot of photos there!

Best regards,
hatti

There is a few around the Stavanger area, but i dont know if they are in this forum. But join the norwegian Pentax site on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/Pentaxianere/

And welcome to Norway!

Welcome to the forum, there are to my knowledge several Norwegian members, they will no doubt be along soon to introduce themselves.

Norway sounds pretty awesome. I am excited for you!

I would probably freeze my Texan 70-degrees-in-winter butt off there though.

We have a simlar group of people, here in Australia: they're called Queenslanders.

Seriously, there's no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing.

To the OP, I imagine the opportunities for shooting Auroras will be fabulous in Norway, so I hope your job allows you enough time off to travel to the far North for the best shots.

I lived in Sydney for quite a while (3 years) I liked that too....but OMG you are in Tazzy!!! I so want to hit up Tazzy. It's on my short list... Next time I'm down that way...

There are so many places that I want to go. I am checking out pics of Norway on the internet and I would really like that I think (provided I go in summer).

Welcome to Norway!
Now, I have to agree: that is seriously cold weather!

I have an aunt and cousins in Texas - should you get back to Oz and venture South, let me know. I'm sure we would have a lot to share!

Yes! Lots! dunno about Stavanger specifically, but the facebook group is certainly very active and friendly. Although the far north is clearly much better.
