    Re: This is Norway - all places without their own thread.

    The first time on Farstadstrand in wintertime was during this Easter. Here are a few images from Saturday 30. March.

    Popular place to recreate, and the parkinglot was filled with cars.
    If we say each car just had two people on board, there shoulod be almost 100 people out there, but the nature is so enormous, that the other people almost disappeared, and it felt like we were alone.


    A scene I've photographed before, page two I think, but this time with naked trees


    Farstadstrand is an area protected by law to be as is, and everyone visiting should take care in using the recreational area


    That farm had some nice colours. Cropped a bit too much off the sky, but I decided to let it pass...


    Distant mountains with a communication antenna. Like the antennas shadow...

      Never get tired of that mountain. Love this scenery...


      On top, as described somewhere before, NATO has placed some sort of "secret" antennaes

      Oh, there's that mountain again (Stemshesten)

        Concludes my images from this beautiful place for now, hope you all enjoyed...

          That seems to be a wonderful place to pay a visit.

            Oh, it could be done..., if you let's say was on board a hurtigrute southbound, left the ship in Kristiansund and embarked again in the evening in Molde.
            That way I could be at the quay in Kristiansund with my car, we could drive to Fartstadstrand (some 40-45 minutes from the city), take a photography walk out to the lighthouse and back (approx. 1 to 1,5 hours), and drive to Molde (an hour) to arrive the hurtigrute quay with time to spare.
            In the summertime, this would be quite a tour..., 3.5 hours in total.
            (The hurtigruten depart Kristiansund 17:00 and Molde 21:30, so that mean 4.5 hours to spare).

              Sounds like a great idea!

                Beautiful images from a place I drove past (... my bad...)... I saw the sign, and thought "perhaps next time?".... Bud was the destination that day.

                I obviously missed out on something... so, based on your superb images, next time, I won't drive past... !

                  Wednesday 19. June, I went on a roadtrip around in Møre and Romsdal county.
                  The main reason was to photograph the 3 large cruiseships arriving Ålesund at the same time in the morning.
                  To be at the right spot early enough, I had to get out of bed at 03:30AM to take the 05:00AM ferry from Molde to Vestnes.

                  My trip went to Ålesund, Tresfjord, Innfjorden,Åndalsnes and Eresfjord/Eikesdalsvannet, and as the easiest way...., I post all images in this thread.

                  Tresfjord church from 1828. It can seat 220 people


                  As you come driveing around a right turn at Farkvam along road E-139, mountain Trollstolen goes 1233 meters straight up

                  Innfjorden....


                  ...with its majestic mountains


                  At Åndalsnes, MSC MAGNIFICA arrived Wednesday 19. June making it possible for me to get four large ones in one stroke...

                      At Åndalsnes train station was one of NSBs five Di.4 locomotives making ready for departure. NSB got five of these from Heinschel in 1980, numbered 4651 to 4655.

                        The harbour authorities had a boat to pick up the ropes from MSC MAGNIFICA




                        And since last year, they also got a new office...., on wheels...

                          Yes, I thought so too; where are the people?? But the ship had just arrived and as for the locals, it was a working day, so...


                          Time to say goodbye for now to Åndalsnes and set course Eresfjord.
                          I drove via Åfarnes and Vistdal, and as I came down from the 500 meters high Vistdalsheia, mountain Goksøyra stood 1337 meters tall, and we see Eikesdalsvannet to the right.


                          Goksøyra mountain (looks far, far more impressive in real life! )


                          The road to Øverås, where ferry MARDØLA left for Eikesdal in the old times went alongside river Eira.

                            The water in Eira was so crystal clear I could not belive it...


                            An old stone fence in the Eikesdalsvannet


                            Near the old wooden bridge at Osen over to Øverås was this forest with the most fantastic light inside


                            At Øverås were the old ferry quay. There might be a ferry/boat sailing in the tourist season, but I don't know that)


                            Goksøyra mountain seen from the ferry quay at Øverås


                            Today there are a 2 mile road with tunnels alongside the water to Eikesdal, but I have to find time another day to go there

                              Driving back home via Eresfjord, I could not stop to be amazed by how crystal clear the water of river Eira were. I mean, there was NOTHING in it, not a single grain of dust...., only pure clear water!
                              (The depth over those stones in the lower part of the image is 30-40 centimeters, belive it or not)






                              I'm going back there, for sure


                              This concludes my pictures from my 19. June roundtrip of 448 kilometers starting 03:30AM ending 08:30PM.
                              I'm sorry it took 10 days before any images appeared on CVF, but with loads like that, editing takes time.

                              Hope you enjoyed

                                On my way to Røros, I passed through Oppdal


                                After a short drive north on road E-6, I turned onto road 3 at Ulsberg to go to Tynset. Before Tynset was a place called Kvikne.
                                Here's an old melting oven for melting copper, and this particular one was in use from 1659 and a few years onward. Think about it... 1659.


                                Inside the melting oven


                                Close to the oven is river Orkla


                                After Kvikne I drove into Tynset, to look at the worlds largest 'spark', a norwegian device used on icy roads during winter


                                And before Røros, I drove through Tolga. here's the 'famous' old Tolga bridge, said to be from 1859
