Black and white picture from winter road trip in Northern Sweden
Taken with Olympus EPL-1 digital camera December 28th 2011. Click image for larger view.

This Christmas I visited Northern Norway for the Holiday. I usually go by plane to the north, but this time we drove from Trondheim, in the middle of Norway, to my home island of Andørja. This kind of trip can be quite challenging during the winter.

On the way south we went through Northern Sweden and there was some nice winter scenery when we passed the mountain ranges. In the picture above I have photographed a winter road in black and white. The landscape up there is very desolate and far away from everything so a black and white conversion suited the scenery.
I also like the effect that you can see in the foreground on the road that happens because I took the picture while sitting in a moving car.

Please see my other winter pictures here.
