The road to Glitterheim, Norway

Glitterheim is the name of a trekking cabin in the end of the valley of Veodalen and was built in 1901, and it’s owned by The Norwegian Trekking Association (DNT). The cabin is located at the foot of Norway’s second tallest mountain, Glittertind.

Because of the ongoing pandemic, we were not allowed to enter the area close to the cabin as we haven’t booked a visit in before hand. Anyway, the view along the way was amazing, enjoy.

Selected photos from our trip in Northern Spain, part I

A couple of years ago we had an astonishing round trip in Northern Spain, starting in Barcelona up to Figueres, to the birthplace of Salvador Dalí and further to the lighthouse at Cabo de Creus. From there we went up to Andorra, unfortunately it was raining most of the driving, so not many photos from this stretch.

Sognefjellet in white

We have been crossing Sognefjellet several times, but never when it has been all covered in snow. The road over the mountain pass is more than 1400 meters high and are closed during winter. The road opened the weekend before Easter this year, and we used the opportunity to take a look, and to take some photos to share with you all. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Frost in our garden

We have had a sudden drop in temperature and then the humid air makes some interesting ice crystals. All photos are taken just outside the house in our garden, and I wonder if the spider had time to hide before the cold came and made his web look like a christmas decoration?

Thanks for visiting!

 

Playa de Cueva, Asturias – Spain

We were driving along the N-634 in Valdés, western Asturias, when we noticed this pearl of a beach before the road turned inland towards Oviedo. Obviously we decided to take off and head to the beach and take some photos.

Thanks for visiting!

 

Autumn in our Garden

I was browsing through some folders here today and found some very beautiful photos taken in our garden this autumn, means you don’t need to go half around the world to take some nice photos. Scenes we see everyday gets on our blind spot, and we ignore tings we stare at every day. Like Henry David Thoreau said: “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see”.

Burgos Cathedral, Spain

Santa Iglesia Catedral Basílica Metropolitana de Santa María in Burgos, Spain, are maybe one of the most astonishing cathedrals you’ve never heard about. Details upon details wherever you turn your head, being high up on the facade, or tucked away in a corner inside. Had a huge challenge this time to choose the more interesting photos, and there are still so many more. If you like us to make a part II of this amazing cathedral so we can show you more of our photos, please tell us in the comments below.

Burgos Cathedral is the only independent cathedral in Spain (that is not a part of a larger historical center) on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list.

Picos de Europa, Spain – Part I

The Peaks of Europe are a mountain range in Spain, situated at the junction between Asturias, Cantabria and Castile and León, and are part of the larger Cantabrian Range stretching along northern part of the country from the Pyrenees in the east. If you happens to like mountainous landscape, you will be in heaven. Deep v-shaped valleys and steep mountainsides compete with each other for you attention. In between houses and villages appear, some abandoned many years or even centuries ago, in the most unexpected places.  Where there are some green patches you will see cows and sheep grassing, and if you look closer, you will see some goats in the steeper parts.
