Moose grazing

This is the moose (or elk) , and the king of the forest. Majestic animals, and quite nice to look at . Just remember to keep the distance, they are large, fast and extremely powerful.

Picture of the day : Deer me

This is one from the archive. Shot outside my parents hometown on the western part of Norway about a year ago. Unlike in my hometown where elk (moose) and venison are plentiful. There are deer that are the name of “game” on those parts of  Norway. I think they look quite stunning.

Early morning at Oslo central station (a little street photography)

I just came home from a short trip to Oslo last night, and when I was there I thought it could be a good idea to test a little street photography. So I went early to the central station, and there is a lot of nice activity to see, especially in the early “commuter hours”.

Have added a little amount of “grain” to the images, just for emphasise the context of “a busy morning”,  and not the specific people.

You see a lot of people rushing to get to there trains and destination on time.

The station it self have been refurbished, and I think it looks quite good.

People where starting to get a little anxious…..

People was getting ready to catch there trains, and other trains was arriving.

Picture of the day: A view from above

It is a quite lovely day here in Northern Norway, and I went on a short hike to get a good vantage point overlooking the my hometown of Brønnøysund, and its two most famous mountains. Torghatten on the far left, and Ramtind on the far right. Shot with a drone at about 100 meter above sea level.

Picture of the day: A little piece of middle ages history

I am still on the west coast of Norway visiting my parents, and of course I have to venture out trying to get some shots. Mybe the most spectacular pieces of history around these parts is this old wooden church (Holdhus gamle kirke), that dates all the way back to 1306. Still looks impressive after all these years.
