The National Museum of Ceramic and Decorative Arts is Valencia’s wonderland of luxurious, fantastical and rare old objects. You feel in awe when you walk towards the building and see the walls made of different colored stone, plaster and metal.
The discussion about the “best” lenses is a debate that never ends and is also a personal choice. These are my recommendations based on my opinion and needs. As this is a photography blog with lots of travel pictures and some more personal photos, the recommendations reflect this.
We have been in the beautiful and cosy city of Valencia, Spain, about a year ago. It wasn’t meant to be a photo trip… But we took a lot of pictures and snapshots, which we have recently transformed into a book.
It has been quiet here at the blog/gallery the past days… That’s because we have been traveling through the fantastic parts of southern Spain. Meanwhile we sort through the new pictures, we leave you with some older shots we took from Geirangerfjorden, Unesco World Heritage site some years ago.
Sognefjellet is a mountain pass – the highest in Northern Europe – between Sognefjorden and Lom, in Norway. You can use the Tourist Route 55 and indulge in wild towering mountains of Jutunheimen Nasjonallpark and open views, where you basically go from sea level to the roof of Norway in 30 minutes driving.
We are not animal photographers, but sometimes, nature has gifted us with some fun, great opportunities to capture wildlife like this. Here you see a few shots of deer we have taken on different occasions – all of them in Hemne/Aure in Mid-Norway.
On our previous post, we have shared photos we took from Trondheim, about 10 years ago. It’s impossible not to celebrate the beautiful Nidarosdomen or Nidaros cathedral as one of the most iconic landmarks, if not the most iconic landmark in that small city.
About 10 years ago we took a day to walk through Trondheim, about one hour by car from where we live. Like many other cities, it is cut by a river, Nidelva. The third biggest city in Norway, with almost 200.000 inhabitants. Established by Olav Trygvason over a thousand year ago.
Ten years ago, on a beautiful sunny morning, we went for a walk at Neshaugen, a small place in Hemne. Our neighbour village today, it was the place where Ove grew up.
Late summer, early Autumn last year (2016), sometime around I looked by the window and saw a great opportunity on what became a beautiful sunny day. A thin layer of frost covered the landscape and marked the end of the flowers in our garden.
What better place to start than home?
May this be the first of many posts showing our photographic adventures!
