  • Commented on photo When tomorrow comes in the Ah, The Serenity.... challenge

    Thank you ever so much, folks. Much appreciated!
    You see a tiny rocky islet called Hølbergurda, in lake Næra, Hedmark county, SE Norway. Taken just after sunrise, in-10°C and hovering frosted fog,...

  • Submitted a challenge entry Yggdrasil
    Yggdrasil - the everlasting tree in Norse mythology, encompassing the entire world, growing into the heavens... And yes, maybe it's still here, underneath the eternal stars. Also note Andromeda, our nearest neighboring galaxy, just to the right of the tree.

  • Commented on photo Hexagonal in the Natural Sculptures challenge

    Thx a lot, Ruth! :)
    Yes, this is an incredible place. You should go there sometime!
    Actually, the whole of Iceland is such a treat, that I highly recommend.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Hexagonal
    Svartifoss in Iceland. The waterfall plunges down over a spectacular basalt columnar wall. Such hexagonal columns are formed inside halted lava flows that cools extremely slowly, which again causes crystallization to appear. The waterfall resides some 20 min walk upstream from Bölti inside Skaftafell NP. The NP also embraces a great portion of the Vatnajökull glacier, and covers a total of 4807 km².

  • Submitted a challenge entry Monster on a plaque
    Hvitserkur - it's amazing, and it looks as it's peacefully grazing it's way along the coastline in Húnafjörður, NW Iceland, on the eastern side of the Vatnsnes peninsula.
This truly odd sea stack is standing some 50m offshore, towering 15m high, and it's the sole remnant of an old volcanic crater wall, where the rest is eroded and gone.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Leaves of rust
    Even condemned cars and crackled paint can still contain some beauty. Here rust speckles and traces of petroleum-based paint spreads across an old engine hood. It even resembles a midnight sky, as if the old wreck tries tro create it's own heaven, providing a poor consolation to it's bleak and desolate fate.

    For a mere minute or two, the low winter sun breaks through the dense frosted fog, that hovers to and fro above the freezing lake.

  • Submitted a challenge entry "Finnished"
    No, that title is not a typo, but an attempt at a pun :) This old building resides close to Skallelv in Varanger, Finnmark county, Norway. It was put up around 1850, by Finnish immigrants, coming to Norway and the town of Vardø, for finding work in the, at the time, prosperous fishing industry. Lots of Finns came to northern Norway some 160 years ago, leaving their imprint and their culture
all over the region till this day. But "the times they are'a changin" (to quote Bob Dylan), and this home was finally abandoned in 1947, left alone to face time, decay and destiny...

  • Submitted a challenge entry Mirage moon
    A full July moon rises over the surface on lake Mjøsa, the biggest lake in Norway. It's so fully coloured due to its proximity to the horizon, and the warm and hazy summer air. The Scandinavian midsummer nights don't get much darker than this, but stays dreamy, soft and blue... Also note the tendency of mirage along the water surface, especially at the wooded point under the moon. Picture taken one hour before midnight, free handed from a small swaying boat.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Walk the line
    A narrow string of land still allows access to the small islet Hovinsholmen in lake Mjøsa, SE Norway, before the spring flood once again will rise the water level to it's full summer volume. In the middle of the islet there's an ancient Viking offering ground, where the pagans sacrificed blood to their mythological Norse gods.

    The time is 05:58 on April 22nd 2006. We have ascended on ski for 5 hours already, to the summit of Besshø/2258m, through the deep arctic night, with millions of stars, and the aurora floating above us. So utterly beautiful, so peaceful, so right... Here the morning sun hits the Hurrungane area in Jotunheimen NP. The skyline from the left: St. Austanbotntind/2204m, St. Ringstind/2124m (the white "thumb"), Storen/2405m and Raudalstind/2157m.

    Slowly the days grow longer, and the sun rises higher by the day. Here from a sparkling February sunrise somewhere in the Norwegian mountains. The ground almost resembles a big flag, as the long shadows stretches across theglittery  ground.
