New gallery with pictures from Norway
For a landscape photographer, Norway is probably one of the most desirable destinations in the world. Situated on the western part of Scandinavia in Northern Europe, Norway has rugged coastline, broken by huge fjords, thousands of islands, and high mountain peaks that all together offer countless opportunities for photography.
Norway has been on my bucket list for a long time, and this summer, dream finally became truth, as me and my family, went to Norway on a two-week vacation. We spent first week on Storhaugen Gard near Lom in Jotunheimen National Park. Jotunheimen covers an area of roughly 3,500 km² and it’s home to Galdhøpiggen, Norway’s highest mountain peak, and over 80 other peaks above 2000m. It is impossible to exploring such a vast area in such a short time, but I did prepare myself with the list of places that I wanted to photograph and I got most of them.
Second week of our vacation was in Smådalen near Vang in Valdres. Smådalen is almost uninhabited area, very little known even for Norwegians, where we stayed in a beautiful cabin and opportunity to relax in incredible surroundings. The weather in Smådalen was actually too good for landscape photography, as the sky was most of the time completely blue without a single cloud. However, we had couple colorful sunsets, and most of the pictures I took in Smådalen, where taken those two evenings.
The gallery with the pictures form Jotunheimen and Smådalen is now (almost) completed, and can be seen from Landscape menu or simply by clicking on here
