Summer in Jotunheimen - 01 by pheelfresh Summer in Jotunheimen - 01 by pheelfresh
Hi all!

Just got back from a three day trip into the Jotunheimen National Park here in Norway. Jotunheimen is Norways largest mountainous region (3500 square km). It contains the tallest peaks in Northern Europe with Galdhø;piggen (2469m) being the tallest. A fantastic hiking area no doubt.

This summer's weather has been very varying. This particular shot was taken during the best night with fantastic afterglow and sporadic rain showers. The mountains in the distance are enclosed in just one of those rain showers.

Finally, it was great being out photographing again. Having the time for it was just awesome. I love vacations :)

Anyways, this is the first on in the series, with hopefully at least 4 more coming soon.

Thanks for looking!

- Anders

I didn't realize there was really a place called Jotunheim (well, close to it). Looks much nicer than in the Thor films!

Welcome back Anders, wonderful to see new work from you.
It's always a treat to see one of your shots, there's always so much thought in your images, but at the same time they seem effortless.

Beautifully composed, a wonderful light...looking forward to seeing the other shots from the trip my friend

Howdy Andy! Thanks for commenting and it's good to be "back" hehe.

I did over 200 shots along that river that evening. Almost running up and down the banks trying to make the most of the light which was a blessing. Especially seeing as I had been camping out for two days with nothing but rain the entire time. It was actually raining quite a bit on this particular evening as well, but I was lucky to be out there during the lulls.

It was incredibly fun to be outdoors shooting again. Really was.

Take care mate!
