This is going to be a quick post this week. As mentioned on Monday, I’m working on some big things for my site behind the scenes, so I’m taking it easy on the blogging. Instead, I’ll leave you with just a few images from Norway.
I couldn’t quite decide on which “wow” picture to share this week, so you get two scenes.
Norway had already amazed us, but it was about to step it up a notch with this incredible discovery of the Kjenndalen glacier!
Exploring Norway is a new scenic wonder around every corner. Just when we thought we had been wow’d enough for one day, something else fell across our path that renewed the amazement. This particular day, we had already visited an adorable church and hiked a spectacular glacier (that story’s coming soon!). We were merely on our way to another beautiful campsite for the evening.
But the landscape wanted to hold us tight, to seduce us into staying out later to soak in the natural wonders. We were surrounded by eye candy; it’s a shock we ever slept. How could the inside of a familiar tent ever compare to Mother Nature’s endless artwork all around us for miles in every direction?
There’s something truly stunning about places above the 60th parallel. It’s much cooler there (usually), and frozen landscapes make for some of my favorite photography. How could you not love the perfect white beautifully contrasting the deep blues and bright oranges? Besides, I’m something of a sucker for snow; it transforms a scene into a magical wonderland.
Happy new week to you all!
I’ve been talking about it for a bit, but this week, I finally followed through on the “two-five” (TWO5) idea. This week, I posted two new photos to Instagram and five new photos to 500px. I am also trying just wildlife photos on Instagram. We’ll see how I like this new focus.
This first image was from our trip to Mesa Verde National Park. We had to take a tour to get down to the actual ruins, but it was totally worth it. These ancient Puebloans lived incredible lives carved out of these cliff faces. Clambering down death-defying drops to access these fortresses and surviving off of corn and seep springs. Wow… You can read all about our full adventures at Cliff Palace and the other ruins right here.
