  • On the road

    Well, pictures taken through a windshield or from a vehicle along the road makes some interesting and rather special photos. Here are some of mine :

    E10: Lofoten



    A friend of my dad driving my dads Chevy....and since this guy is shorter than my dad, he put the gps waaaay up on the windshield



    E10: Tjeldsundbrua(between the mainland and Hinnøya)



    E10: Approaching Bogen



    E6: Dunderdalen, just south of Saltfjellet



    E6: further North, at Saltfjellet

    E6: Hamarøya(I shouldn't be walking in the middle of the road, but it was around 11:57 pm)

        The next to the last in post 1 (#1/7) with the distant car on the road ahead – and that cloud in the otherwise clear sky – really makes me feel I’m sitting there in the car. It conveys such a sense of making a winter journey.

          We have a Chevy Starcraft Legacy 1999, and a Ford Mondeo(TDCI) 2003. And the pictures from Saltfjellet was from when we bought the Ford in Trondheim and drove it home.

            Oh, ok. Not that it mattered, but I understood a van were used in some pictures, due to the hight of the side windows relative to the railing on the bridge, and why I knew a For was involved..., well, a tiny Ford logo on the arm of the windshield whipers....

              It's interesting to someone in the south to see marker poles along the side of the road.

                I guess you don't have much snow in North Carolina?

                Here are some more pictures, two more from E10 in Lofoten:



                Gimsøystraumen



                Further east on E10 , right before Raftsundet :





                Still on E10, just south of Tjeldsundbrua heading south towards Lødingen and Lofoten:



                This is somewhere along Rv17(or Kystriksveien). I can't remeber exactly where this is, but I think it is a few miles north of Jektvik(Which is where the Ferry that cross the Arctic Circle docks)

                  Rv848 : Rolløya. This is actually one of the worst roads in Troms. If you drive it, you'll figure out why. But you'll spare some time driving across Rolløya and Andørja when going from Harstad to Tromsø.



                  11%...a challenge with a bike...but I made it :P







                  The road is in a bad condition, but I still recommend it. The landscape is beautiful

                    Holly cow! An 11% grade. I've only seen roads like that in the mountains of Central America.

                    Beautiful pictures.

                    We do get a fair amount of snow in North Carolina but it usually does not stay for very long and certainly is not enough to loose the road. Yesterday morning everything was white and covered with snow but it was sunny and got up to 50f (+10). Quite often they do not even try to plow the snow because so often it quickly melts the next day.

                          Today we drove to Kabelvåg just for fun

                          The almost brand new Lofast tunell.



                          Ingelsfjorden and the E10



                          Hanøy. And if you are very lucky, you could take the ferry from Hanøy to Kaldjord 2-3 times a day.



                          E10



                          Vatterfjord





                          This is Vatterfjordpollen or Husvågen



                          Tørrfesk in Svolvær



                          I have some more pictures from this trip that will come sometime soon
