Windy weather beyond the polar circle

The wind made the clouds move so fast. The sun-rays looked like laser beams from outer space!

This is the village Laupstad. I grew up in the white house in the upper right part of the village.

    Although i visited Norway for the first time last summer, i didn’t go higher than Oslo or Bergen. 🙂
    But i’m determined to visit Norway again and go further up North!
    About this shot: I just can’t imagine growing up in a village like this!… But what a great capture!

    That is a lovely shot 🙂

    Norway is on my list (top places i want to visit) and i can get pretty cheap flights from liverpool. But beer is expensive so that puts me off 🙂

    The whole shot is beautiful, but I also like how you capture a whole village here. That helps a stranger like me get a better sense of what things look like.
