Here the Hardangervidda high mountain plateau steeply drops off into the fjord regions of western Norway. For scale, the waterfall to the left is some 535 feet tall. I’m guessing there’s a ~700 feet drop from the ledge I’m standing on. Didn’t fall in though, just barely. :-)
This is my illo for the LGAL's “In Place” exhibition (opening August 23th) and I chose Norway’s Hardangervidda. I was there with my family several times when I was young and loved the landscape and the calmness. I felt very free when we wandered through fjords and moss-covered places without any people. I do like spending my vacation in a city but hiking in Norway is the more relaxing and fullfilling thing for me. (And I adore the language!)

Peak autumn colors in this damp and dramatic waterfall environment in western Norway. The autumn air was cool and the waterfalls kept roaring at full power. Here the Hardangervidda high mountain plateau steeply drops off into the fjord regions of western Norway. For scale, the waterfall to the left is some 535 feet tall.

Thanks for stopping by, any feedback appreciated.
With our Lee “Big Stopper” we shifted the perspective of the spectacular intact vast landscapes of Norway, here a detail of the Hardangervidda River. At first the water seems like clouds or silk, this is induced by the filter, it reduces exposure by 10 f-stops, meaning the normal exposure time is increased by 1000.
Every run has that excited moment of preparation and planning. The morning coffee surrounded by maps and full of unlimited potential. Where to go, how far to run and which trail to take are all questions that are mulled over, between sips of coffee.
