  1. Oh my… these are absolutely beautiful pictures and make me want to visit Norway like never before. What an eye for natural beauty. I will definitely keep coming back for more.

  2. What a beautiful shell with lovely gradation!

    Once I lived in Scandinavia (Sweden). There was really exciting place to take pictures. Please keep good work!!

  4. We have several kinds of limpets here in Hawaii, too. The Hawaiian name for limpets is “opihi,” and in some areas whole families go regularly to rocky areas along the coast to pick opihi at low tide (to eat). They are very hard to pry from the rocks while they are still alive.
