PHOTO OF THE DAY

We drove from Oslo to Bergen through the fjords spending a night in Vossevangen or Voss. Our accommodation, Store Ringheim Hotell was situated above Lake Vansvagnet and had beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Caught this light hitting a farm across the lake just before the sun dipped below the mountains

We’ve moved into the southern hemisphere with a few images coming from New Zealand. This is a Maori rock carving on Lake Taupo accessible only by watercraft. It is relatively new, carved in the 1970s by master carver Matahi Whakataka-Brightwell after finishing his 10-year training with Maori elders.

I used a mini-tripod set up on an ancient stone wall to get this long-exposure shot of La Baia del Silenzio (The Bay of Silence) at sunset.
