The winter is inevitable coming closer, but before that we have autumn, here we have a handful of photos with some amazing autumn colors from our archive.
Think about a place where you can connect with nature through silence, through beauty and introspection. Think about a place and time where the very end of Autumn meets the very beginning of a long winter. Think of a time, tinted in black, white and gray, where there is just you and that companion feeling you tried to hide underneath your skin instead of indulging in it…
~ Melancholy. ~ It calls for you right here, in this collection of photographs we took in Hedmark a week ago.
Tyin is a lake at slightly above 1000 meters over sea level in Oppland county in Norway. The lake and the area is a part of Jotunheimen National Park. We where there in the middle of September as a part of our road trip.
The first couple of photos are from the road leading up to the lake.
In the middle of September this year, we revisited the Briksdal Glacier. Even we knew it has withdrawn considerably since last time, it was still a bit disappointing to see it was hardly hanging over the edge of the mountain. Anyhow, the drive up the valley was spectacular as always, even more so this time with the dramatic clouds covering the mountain sides.
As carefully suggested in the previous post about the Briksdal Galcier we strongly urges everybody to walk the 2.5 km from the parking, although they offer transport most of the way, its an easy walk.
I guess it’s about time that we make a post about our Header Image for our blog. Here are the photo itself along with more from the same area called Einunndalen in Norway. Probably not the most visited place by foreign tourist, but quite known by Norwegians who like mountainous landscape above the tree line. Now, you don’t have to be high above the sea level to be over the tree line in Norway though, just about 500 meters depending on the area and less in the north.
Briksdalsbreen is maybe the best known arm of the bigger Jostedalsbreen in Norway, the biggest glacier on continental Europe. Its not only the glacier that are spectacular, the path from the parking presents us with some breathtaking impressions as well.
