Photo of Norwegian winter landscape in January
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on January 30th 2007. Click image for larger view.

This was shot back in January when I had just got my DSLR camera and had no idea about what I was doing. I quite like the “postcard” feeling to it.

This house is placed directly below a mountain called Å-tinden. You can see the mountain here. You can not be afraid of avalanches and live there!

Aperture: f/4.1
Focal Length: 92 mm

    I am just in love with your site. The pictures are so beautiful. You’re right- that could be a postcard and a lovely one at that.

    Your pictures are amazing! I am just in awe of them. I have always had a passion for photography. I try to take as many pictures as I can on different ranches but am in need of a camera upgrade. I always say “one of these days” but that day hasn’t come yet.

    Ja, jeg skjønner godt at du har en populær side, veldig gode bilder. Jeg hadde aldri våget å bo i det huset gitt.
