    My 2012 Summer Vacation to southern Norway

    Here is the "official summer holiday report" for 2012. Some of the most long-standing members may remember my last years holiday trip:

    My 2011 Summer Vacation to Sweden and beyond....

    This will - as usual - be a picture heavy thread over MANY pages... all images have been completely prepared by now, all I have to do is to narrate and share.

    With this first image, guess where the trip this year started:

        Yes, Røros was the first stop on the tour... the trip was not planned in any particular way, and was taken a lot on impulse.

        The meaning was to start on this trip earlier, but when my summer holiday started, health-issues said I had to hold for a week more...

        Let's continue with Røros then:

                      Time to return to the tiny cabin at Bergstaden camping, just two more photos before taking a rest for the night:

                            Old wood, reflections in old glass, set off delightfully by the flower baskets.

                            How beautiful the light is in #5 , full of a scene that is both familiar and fresh to me, for I have only been here in winter. This “hidden river” fascinated me then, so mysterious did it seem when there was only a hollow in the deep snow!

                            At the Apotek I love the colours, the gold, the shadow turning orange to purple. I very much admire that it’s a close in view you’ve taken, and even more strikingly in the familiar sculpture of #6. Oh and a dear cat, whose thoughts you almost seem to have captured, and whose eyes you have so well placed in the frame of your photo.

                            Pakarang, can you tell in the last few comments I’m in the realm of “I would never have thought of taking that photo that way” ?!
                            But in #9…I might, just might have taken something like that!

                            This thread has “summer” in the title, and in #10 summer is in the image in a very pakarang way …well I’m sure you know what I mean


                            As for your next destination….this is getting difficult, so probably somewhere I have never been. But I remember you went to Lillehammer during your holiday (…surely “remembering” such a thing is in itself worth “pakarang points” ?!?!? ).
                            On the left behind the roofs there’s something orange, looks more like a fun ride than anything winter-olympics related, so Hunderfossen is a nearby possibility.

                              I particularly loved how the Apotek-sign came out... that is what caught my eye initially.

                              Got the idea from a poster that I saw on my walk, advertising a theatrical play at those hills.

                              The challenge is trying to come up with something new, after so many visits to the same place. I have photographed this house a couple of times before, and had to think of something different this time.

                              Absolutely, the tiny houses might be an easy give-away... the miniature-land at Lilleputhammer, next to--- yes... Hunderfossen. PS: I didn't go into this park though, it's mostly for children anyway.
