Norway July 2011


Norway For a long while it has been a dream of mine to visit and photograph the Norwegian fjords. So in the summer of 2011, with my good friend Alberto, and taking my beautiful convertible “Amelié”, we visited and photographed tthe various fjords and valleys in the Norwegian Western Fjord region. It was quite a trip; ten days travelling across, around and even over the different fjords. At times, taking some of the “off the beaten paths” to discover yet another stunning waterfall or glacier…or getting up close and personal on a kayak... The scenery and the nature is really breathtaking and it felt like a privilege to have been able to go there, experience it first hand and now to be able to re-live it through the images captured on ‘film’. So here they are...
