Oh wow, what an experience! To experience a book coming alive like that will be something the children will remember their entire lives!

looks foggy but peaceful.

It does look foggy-muted — but it was actually a mix of sun and clouds. That’s the way those far mountains reflect. Interesting, isn’t it? I captured that “look” here and here also.
And yes, it’s incredibly peaceful. 🙂

Such a relaxing photo to gaze upon!

Thank you! And thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I’ll enjoy exploring yours, and find new books to explore!

I am gathering from this
that Oselva is a nearby lake, meeting the Bjørna fjord….
because I think seagulls are måker
thank you for the puzzle 🙂

Great detective work, Lauren! 🙂
“Elva” means “river” in Norwegian — but further inland it is quite wide and looks like a lake. And yes, that salmon was huge (and I’m sure was delicious)! I remember the report of that catch last August. 🙂
The photo is from the end of the little “harbor” area in Osøyro; I was standing on the docks, with all the boats tied up behind me and the apartment building and other retail/restaurant buildings cropped out to the right. Although there were a lot of people around, it was so peaceful compared to my recent Bergen harbor visits for the Tall Ship Races!

Waiting for food?

Of course they were VERY hopeful … they’re seagulls! 🙂 And as I stood there clicking away, they kept coming closer and closer, hoping and hoping …

I simply love shots like this. I grew up on a huge bay of a river, and the light reflecting on the water was always my joy. Well done, Cindi !!!

Thank you, Margaret-Rose! I didn’t grow up around water, so I envy you your memories. Thank you for sharing that one!
And, if I published every photo of reflections I’ve taken …. well, you and I would be the only one visiting the blog. 😉

Then you must love them as much as I do, Cindi. What totally superior taste !!!!! 😀
August 7, 2014 at 1:11 pm
Absolutely! 🙂 🙂

Thank you Christian!
I love your photos of the juvenile wagtail. As one of the other commenters wrote, he looked like he was reading the sign! (I left a comment on your page, but have had problems with Blogspot and my Google account not connecting and so my comments seem to be sent but aren’t … so I also left it on Google+ … sorry for the double-post if they both go through!)

Awww your seagulls!

They were a bunch of juveniles, hopeful for a handout.
I disappointed them. Ungrateful human. Took photos without giving anything back.

This is so peaceful! Looks like the kind of place you could just sit and ponder or daydream for hours. I am hosting a Wordless Wed. link up that I would love for you to participate in too. You can find it here if you are interested: http://www.my-captivating-life.com/2014/08/wordless-wednesday-2-late-sorry.html

Thanks April! It was a very peaceful moment … well, I thought so. The gulls were hoping for some food excitement. 🙂
(I’m leaving on vacation; I’ll visit your link and look at the details when we get back!)
