I enjoy watching clouds and I enjoy watching mountains so why not take pictures of them together. Looks like the clouds are hugging the mountain 🙂

The mountain peak is called “Drangen” and is about 1000 meters above sea level.

    Nice work. Was the picture taken from another mountain, or from aircraft?

    I was just talking about Norwegian landscapes with a friend that has travelled the world on a motorcycle, and she was telling me that they are the most astonishing landscapes she has ever seen… It has to be great being a photographer in your country.
    I think you are really talented… do you ever take pictures of people or just landscapes?
    Anyway I will definitely stop by in the future…

    This is a beautiful cloudscape. I just spent the last half hour exploring your wonderful photography of Northern Norway. I really enjoyed seeing a part of Norway that one usually does not get to see.
