Today Was a Good Day

For this week’s WordPress’ photo challenge, Cheri Lucas Rowlands asks us to “select and share a series of photographs. You can piece together what you consider an ideal day, recount a memorable day, tell a (visual) story, or show us some of your favorite things.”

Here are some photos from my trip to Sandhornøya in North of Norway this summer.

I have an insanely large amount of photos from this trip and I’ll probably share more later. Check out WordPress’ post for more “good day photos”:

Now we’re heading out for what’ll hopefully be another good day and try to capture some new shots. Enjoy your Sunday!

  1. Looked like a wonderful trip you had. Love the late evening shots – nice touch of colour amidst the grey in the sky. Quite a dramatic yet gentle feel to the last shot.

    Really liking the new header too. Gives me a ghoulish kind of feeling.

  2. Stunning photos of stunning landscape! I love it how your son is such a smiley and happy-looking little person 🙂 Looks like you two are having a great time.

    • Dhanyavad Andy-ji. My son was with me for 3 coherent weeks that we spent in Oslo and up North, so we definitely bonded and had a wonderful summer together. Cheers to more! Skål!

  3. A gorgeous selection of photos and the skies are dramatic in all the landscape shots!! … but the photo with the goggles made me laugh out loud. The caption is hilarious – good one!! 😀

  4. your son is adorable… 🙂 great captures of his happiness and those stunning landscapes… happy you are having such great time together!!

  5. These are such wonderful shots CG. What an amazing series. That last one is stunning and I love the ones with your son, it looks like a really great trip.

  6. So many beautiful images from the sea to the sky. That trip seems to have supercharged your creativity. But I am particularly attracted to the last one (tone, color, composition, content) and with the image of your son’s first boat ride. I felt like I was experiencing that moment with him. Wonderful.

    • Thanks Lisa. I worked a bit on that last photo to make it look like I wanted it to look, so I’m glad to hear that you like it too. The trip was amazing and I’ll post more photos from it later.

      • Looking forward to more!

        It is funny. I don’t know you very well, so I could be really off base here, but somehow, that trip seems to have changed you. You seem lighter and happier as a result. I love your dark side but I am really enjoying this side as well.

        • Don’t worry Lisa, my dark side will return as sure as the dark season will return.
          It’s funny how a little bit of sunlight, summer vacation and quality time with my kid can chase the depressions away 🙂
          But, the dark season has once again started and so has my meaningless job…

          • Okay, well now I’m conflicted. I love both your dark and your light sides so I’m not sure whether to send you wishes of shit or of sunshine. All kidding aside, I hope you find light in the dark season and a way to leave that meaningless job in your wake.

  7. Waiting for them, too…
    This day must have been really good to judge from the photos!
    But I wonder why I didn’t get none of your boy…. My tablet’s fault , perhaps?
    Ciao, CG , see you (soon)!

  8. I’ve really enjoyed this particular challenge but with so many people participating I can’t possibly check out everybody’s submissions. I would have missed yours if it were not for Joanne’s link to your site. Sounds like you and her husband Giles and Joanne had a nice couple of hours together. She’s right about your fantastic photos of Norway.
