Recently I visited Stokksund in Trondelag, Mid-Norway. This is the place were I grew up, a small community at the Fosen Pensinula north of Trondheim.
Winter is a mixed joy here on the west coast of Norway, with weather conditions that can vary from hour to hour. Down at sea level there is normally the rain that dominates. In order to find snow and go on skiing trips one will have to visit higher elevations.
Winter is coming. At Revtangen bird observatory south of Stavanger that means time for action, but fortunately of a peaceful nature. Autumn is high season for bird ringing when it comes to migratory species like waders.
It’s always fun to look through old photos. I captured this scene more than ten years ago. It got me a price in a photo contest held by Trondheim’s largest newspaper. This was back in the “old” days, while film based cameras were more common than the digital wonders we use today. Most of us who shot film know the feeling; you think you have a nice shot, but will not know the result for several days, or weeks in worst case.
