Edgy Summer

I’ve been on the edge several times this summer, so WordPress’ Photo Challenge this week had the perfect theme.

Here’s a small gallery from my hikes to Preikestolen, Kjeragbolten, Trolltunga and Besseggen.

Lysebotn

During winter there’s only 11 residents in this small village on the West Coast of Norway, but it’s annually visited by 100.000 tourists.

Lysebotn

Lysebotn is a village in Forsand municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. The village is located at the eastern end of the Lysefjorden in a very isolated valley that is only accessible by one road or by boat. The name itself means the “bottom [end] of the Lysefjorden”. It’s a destination for over 100,000 tourists annually, and it is an access point for the Kjerag mountain, a popular Base Jumping spot. There are cruises and an express boat to Lysebotn from Skagenkaien in the city of Stavanger, Lauvvik in Sandnes and the village of Forsand. All of which pass beneath the famous Preikestolen cliff on the way to Lysebotn. Lyse Chapel, built in 1961, is found at Lysebotn. Lysebotn at one time had its own school, but that is now closed. – Wikipedia

Norway: Growing up I heard so much about this country. At school we learned about its history, traditions and language. We even ate Norwegian food at home. Finally I got to visit this beautiful country…

Summer Portraits

Here’s a small update from my adventurous summer:

As you already know from my previous post, I went to the North of Norway with my son. After that I spent one day at home, getting ready for my next journey: a trip to Belfast with a friend to check out Titanic International Tattoo Convention. Immediately after returning from Belfast I left on a road trip to the West coast of Norway with 4 strangers – 3 from France and one from Italy. We went hiking & trekking in the Norwegian mountains – just in time before a storm hit the area and several of the roads and tourist attractions were closed.

I have tons of photos from this summer, but I haven’t processed any of them yet. Here’s a few from the last two trips, some shot with camera(s), some with phone. Some landscapes, some portraits:
