Trollheimen

One of my favorite areas is Trollheimen. It’s a national park just south of Trondheim. The area has everything from bare mountains to dense forest.

The area beautiful the whole year. During the winter the whole area is covered in snow and the temperatures can get as low as -20oC. The trees get a nice layer of soft snow and the uneven surfaces on the ground gets flattened out. The sun is visible only a couple of hours each day and when it is its very close to the horizon. The white snow and the low sun makes long shadows and contrasts.

And then when the spring comes the snow starts to melt and the green colors become visible once again. This time of the year can be both beautiful and quite rainy. The bypassing rain clouds can make a wonderful scenery.

Slowly the summer sets in, but still there can be snow in the upper parts of the mountains. The contrasts between the clear blue water, the saturated greens and the white snow can be a fantastic combination

The finally my favorite part of the year comes. All the green leaves and heather turns into variations of yellow and red. As this happens a fantastic combination of colors shows. If you catch this on a clear day you will find an amazingly saturated landscape witch you can get lost in for hours.

Finding old pictures

Have you ever opened your photo library and started scrolling up and into the forgotten tails of your photographic history. When I established this web page I wanted to find the best pictures and I started scrolling.

Of course I had a lot of images, but not all of them are worth mentioning. Actually, there is only a handfull witch I do like enough to get some space here at my web page. So I started marking them with a star to get some overview.

So if you have nothing to do this evening I recommend you to start looking through your images, maybe the ones you took 10 years ago. There are a lot of “not so good” images, but the locations might still be of interest. So why don’t you have a look and pick a couple of them and try to make them better?

My gear

My photography has never really been about the gear. Of course if I do find my area of photography to lack some kind of equipment I do spend a long time putting up comparisons between the alternatives on the marked, but once I’ve settled I don’t really pay that much attention to new and even better cameras and so on. After all; it’s not the gear that makes the photo, it’s the person behind it.
