Photographer's Note

Yesterday I got the opportunity to visit Forollhogna National Park in central Norway. The weather was gorgeous, with great light and temperatures near 25C.

From the north side three different valleys lead into the park, and the one I travelled is called Synnerdalen that means the South Valley, a typical V-shaped valley with surprisingly lush vegetation, considering latitude and altitude! Spring comes late in the NP...

This is a northward view from the parking lot at the end of the road, from here you have to trust your feet for further progress toward the summit of Mt Forollhogna! The trip can be done in one day, but it is recommended to spend at least one night out there.

The foliage of the mountain birch is fresh green, but the rest of the vegetation is still marked by the rather harsh winter this year.

What was quite amazing is that from this very spot I could observe three seagulls, about as far from their natural habitat as they could get.

However the snow is not far away, as shown in the workshop image…
