Hence the expression, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Thank you. Roz

That’s a great expression for many photos of Norway! 🙂

Moody and beautiful!

Thank you, Linda! That’s the exact way I felt about the scenery the moment I captured that image.

My husband’s people are from Norway. When I think of Norway, I think of cold. This is lovely.
Here’s my Wordless Wednesday!

I have been awol for a little while but glad to see you are the first up on my reader today.
Dark and mysterious. Lovely as per normal.

Thank you, Jane! (I’ve been away too. Darn this “real life” stuff.)

Glad to see you back up and posting. This image makes me think any minute a viking ship or a sea monster is around the bend 🙂

I like that imaginative twist to the photo, Teri! I’d prefer a viking ship, I think. 🙂

I love foggy photos.

They speak to so many of our human moods and emotions, don’t they?

I feel like I should whisper as to not disturb the peaceful beauty you set before us. I think could get lost in this deep mysterious fog.. A perfect muse.

Your words are the perfect accompaniment to this photo, Audra.

Love love foggy photos. Something equally eerie & beautiful at the same time =)

“Eerie & beautiful” — the exact way I felt when looking out on this scene on Monday!

Such a lovely image – beautiful!

Awesome. Did you switch the photo to black and white or is this untouched? Actually just watched an episode of “Vikings.” Those people are tough tough tough.
February 12, 2015 at 12:36 pm
Yes, they are certainly tough tough tough! (The current Vikings are too. 🙂 )
The only thing I did to this photo was crop it to take away the boring sky. In reality, the fog texture of that sky was fascinating and complex … but it didn’t get picked up with my simple camera. But that was the color of the day. (Evocative in photos. Blah in real life, especially when experiencing too many days in a row of the same color!)

Love this! I can really feel how it is to be there, surrounded by the fog and moist air. Beautiful:)
February 17, 2015 at 1:15 pm
Your feelings are exactly right. The moist air was a little cool, and quite invigorating!

Pining for the fjords, or just stunned by the mysterious beauty? 🙂

This is such a theatrical capture. The clouds are like a layer of dry ice. It makes me realise how when we use this on stage, the fascination is in what is underneath the mist. That is how these magical clouds make me feel. Your work always inspires me with the insights that are often unexpected and highly valuable for me. Super stunning! ;-D

Thank you, Lita!
And, what a fantastic way to express it: “… the fascination is in what is underneath …” I hadn’t thought of it specifically that way, since I *know* what’s underneath in my images, but the spookiness and change to the landscape are part of a “… is the underneath really still there?” fascination for me.

I love those ‘cliffhanger’ moments where you can suspend knowing. We had the eclipse of the sun about 10 years ago (maybe?) and I saw it on a beach in Cornwall (as far South as we could go without leaving the country!). And it was amazing to see that the whole of the land going dark at midday can happen. I think it was the most spiritual thing I experienced. The trip turned out to be super expensive due to hotels upping the price but wow I’m glad I made the decision to go. When nature pulls out surprises they just stay with you. The birds started singing when the eclipse was over. It was magical if a little scary. It was like oh heck is the sun coming back lol!!!! 😉 Thank you again for triggering powerful connections through your images. They are deeply special compositions.
