My most popular picture on Flickr – Row of Norwegian boathouses on a winter day

August 25th, 2007 · 11 Comments

Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera February 15th 2007. Click image for larger view. I really liked the rural look on this row of boathouses. The grass roof doesn’t hurt the scene with it’s old look. Boathouses like this represent the old fishing culture here in Norway in a good way. I hope people will […]

Picture of cottongrass (Eriophorum) growing on a marsh in northern Norway

August 20th, 2007 · 2 Comments

The sunlight came seeping trough a small forest that was growing at the outskirts of the marsh. I think cottongrass is a beautiful plant with its fluffy […]
