This August I was able to visit Coastal Norway by way of Iceland and Stockholm (why travel in a straight line?) and wanted to follow up on my previous Icelandic essay with one with some photos from the second half of our trip. I have been to Stockholm enough times at this point that it feels familiar and that changes what catches my attention while on photo walks. Being in such a vibrant city was a drastic change from the roads of Iceland but I was still able to find some space by the Baltic waterfront, especially on the water taxis between islands in the archipelago.
We then traveled to Kirkenes to join a coastal ferry up, around and down the Norwegian coast, spending several days in the Arctic. The weather was very temperate even for August and I spent time each day walking as we stopped. I was struck by the rock formations of the fjords and the clarity of the water. Our ferry stopped at many towns and cities along the way, including Hammerfest, Trondheim, Tromsø and parts of the Lofoten Islands. In the pictures selected below, I want to share some of the interfaces between the coastal mountains and fjords.
Bergen and Oslo
We finished our trip by visiting Bergen and Oslo. So, I can share a few urban landscapes and still life of street art and random features that caught my eye.
And one more, a Cormorant in Bergen, posing proudly. Image stabilization worked quite well even at 360mm with the adapted Leica-R 180mm lens and 2x teleconverter for a quick hand held portrait.
More photos from this trip can be found at innercapture.com. Thank you Pascal for the chance to share some of these memories with the Dear Susan community.
