  17. Amazing photography!

    I knew threshold information about Norway prior to visiting your site. I now feel that I have a much better understanding of the political, geographical and physical nature of your beautiful country.

    We, too, collect a significant quantity of snow during the winter months, but your photos reveal a rugged northern beauty that I have not experienced in a long time.

    Well done!

    I invite you to visit my site at: garyross.ca.

    My wife and I wish you and yours a healthy, prosperous 2009.

  19. Just checked Petunias comment, hope you are in a good condition now.
    I never saw clouds like that before. Do they appear only in the wintertime. Stunning shots.

    En kong er en rød gummi ting som man kan feste et tau i.
    Dersom du kaster den, så vil den sprette ganske ulikt en ball. Ganske gøyalt for en hund da sjøh

    Det er altså en hunde-ting

  22. The 1st and the 3rd pics reminds me the "Aurora Borialis" or teh northen lights I saw when I when to Tromsö. I can imagine those clouds "dancing" like those lights.
    Great pics.
