Du har en evne til å fange Nord-Norge som bare er helt utrolig. Den stranden der er verd å vasse i...

Blir alltid litt mygletryne når jeg besøker deg. Blir skikkelig misunnelig på de fine bildene dine.
Disse feriebildene her var noe av det flotteste du har vist på bloggen din.

starnitesky said...

Outstanding skies.

piedmontperspective said...

Wonderful photos, particularly Saltfjellet. It pulls you right in. The cloud in the third photo (Bodø) looks like a monster climbing over the mountains. Thank you for sharing these!

babooshka said...

How many wows today! People always ask why do photographers look at other photographers work. Here's why.
Stunning work like this.
I don't care how impressive the scenery is, good the camera is, computer wizzardry, it's still the human that takes the shots. Without the PHOTOGRAPHER no shots with soul are made.

Marinakvalvik said...

Råfine bilder!

pts said...

3 dimensional images.excellent!

Luiz Ramos said...

Beautiful shots. All of them. Thanks for share.

alicesg said...
