New travel-album; Tenerife 2019

As being retired me and my wife have now more leisure time on our hands. That means mostly sun and beaches -but for me it's also important to check and look for other interesting subjects for my camera!

In September 2019 we went to Tenerife -stayed in Los Christianos and visited Los Gigantes. Both nice places that also offered some of what I seek. In Los Gigantes there was a real fascinating coastline! And Los Christianos had this fine ferry-harbor -and also some interesting eye catchers in the streets.

So -a new travel-album is just started: Tenerife 2019

Los Gigantes

Crete in May 2019

Just as I began writing this a few days ago I discovered a serious problem with my web-site -the WordPress Theme I used. Not the first time I experienced such with a Theme -but I had no choice but to figure things out again! Had to install another older Theme and design it the way I want to to look... So now I'm back 😉

In May this year I went to Crete for holidays again -and the areas of Platanias and Agia Marina never seems to fail me when it comes to interesting subjects for my camera -event though I've been there some times now.. Check my album:

Oldies: Luxembourg & Metz

Oldies -but goodies! ) Added an album today that I simply 'discovered' all over again when browsing my archive. A trip back in 2002 -to Luxembourg -and Metz in France. Shot with my first Canon -that I really loved those days! -Powershot S100.

 

Not the best technical work I've done -almost 20 years go now ) -but a great memory -so I picked the shots I think deserve a place here anyway:

Leaving Lofoten

Actually when writing this -Jan. 17 2019 -I'm on quite another trip than up north in Norway. I'm in a small hotel apartment in Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria. But we can't spend all the time on the beach, can we.. -so I still work on the many shots I took on my sept. 2018 road trip -and upload them from here as they come along....

Now the photos have reached the time when I left Reine in Lofoten (I've already added some shots from that beautiful place) -and head back the way I came actually -through the Lofoten islands -before heading back south -home..

I made a quick stop in Kabelvåg. A lovely small place in Lofoten -and took some nice photos in great light given by some dark clouds and deep blue sky in between them..

The next stop where I spendt another night is Narvik... I will write some more when photos from there is added.

These are the albums now where most of the shots from my Sept 2018 trip can be seen:

Approaching Henningsvær

LofotenOn my roadtrip up north in Norway sept. 2018 -my albums are about to reach Henningsvær in Lofoten. I didn’t sped the night there but passed the road sign.. and stepped on the brakes -backed up and turned to follow the road there… a decision I did not regret!!

Henningsvær is a small place -actually a group of small islands. But when it comes to really experience the northern wild climate and hard work in the old fishing days -it’s a big place anyway! The light was difficult at the time -heavy clouds and strong winds too -with sun burst in between. But did I get the right atmosphere? -Yes I think so 🙂

These are the albums now where any shot from my Sept trip can be seen:

European Majorette Championships 2018

European Majorette Championships 2018

In October 11 – 14 two of my granddaughters were participating in the

European Majorette Championships 2018 -in Porec, Kroatia. Amalie in the team ‘Krystallen Drill’ from Norway -and Marlene as couch for the very team. The show and arrangement was lovely. And I had a great visit in the beautiful area.

The album covering the shows is to be found HERE

Kroatia 2018

In Oct 2018 I had a nice trip to Kroatia. 2 of my granddaughters were participating in European majonette championship 2018 in Porec.

We enjoyed the shows of course -but I also had interesting visits in the small city of Porec -plus a lovely ferry trip to Rovinj! Both cities were obviously very old -and had fine old parts from way back in time -close to the middle age. I love such parts! 🙂

Also check the slides on my front page as some photos might be put in other albums. 

Svolvær

On my trip to Northern Norway Sept. 2018 I have finally arrived Lofoten. And Svolvær is my first stop.

I spent the night in one of the old fisherman's cabins there -all those cabins are now upgraded of course for tourists and travellers! 🙂 -and equipped with every modern need. But the old walls and atmosphere are well kept.. It was a real pleasant stay!

So was Svolvær! Fantastic nature -sky high mountain tops that vanished in the clouds.. and lucky me had lot of clouds that day! I love grey weather and clouds when shooting -specially in a place like this when we should think back to the all the hard work and lost lives back in time -where 'everyone' went up here for fishing.. in boats not equipped as today of course -nor the men was!...

Northern Norway 2018

First shots from Northen Norway 2018


 

In september 2018 I grabbed an opportunity to a great road drive from Alta -Finnmark county -far north in Norway -and south to my home.. I've just started the album where I will post photos from this trip -and these first few shots show the area just south of Alta. Landscapes and old mountain huts used by the Sami people up there..

As usual I have not noted exact location for each and every shot, but I will do my best to write more info as the album is updated:

Landscapes Northern Norway 2018

I september 2018 fikk jeg igjen sjansen til en herlig og interessant kjøretur fra Alta i NordNorge og sørover, hjem til Fredrikstad. Det ble en god del bilder fra de nordligste deler. Følg med på albumet: linken over!
