Norway sits proudly near the top of the world. Like our home in New Zealand, it’s a photographer’s paradise, a country to savour, to visit slowly, and to bring a camera. Last week I featured dramatic black and white Norwegian photos from an overcast, rainy day in one fjord: Lysefjord. Mixed reactions inspired me to search for images of brighter days that highlight the deep blues and greens of Norway. Today, I share the highlights of my colourful images.
The highlight of any visit to the charming village of Flåm is often riding the Flamsbana train either to or from Voss. The train is most known for fantastic views as it climbs steeply up from sea level to 867 meters high over a distance of just 20 km.
