Just to remember

... how pretty a West Norway scenery can be in early spring. Nothing spectacular in terms of photography, but this evokes memories much needed after the prolonged periods of isolation and self-quarantines.

This is uplifting and striking on a number of levels
- Colour contrasts plus lots of fine details in the tree branches
- Great saturated colours and quite deep blacks, then a muted backdrop
- A viewpoint and perspective that had me wondering what angle you were looking up/down at

Plus it's another plus point for landscapes taken with a lens other than a wideangle

I'm glad that I'm not the only one using ancient cameras... The results prove YOU ARE RIGHT!

Me too, another +1

Here is the relevant Google Map. So you all can go out and explore the views ...

I probably was shooting from near the river in the valley floor. My GPS data from that trip are not very exact.

I know Norway is a pretty place anyway, but that's a very nice reminder.

Amazing shot.  At first glance , it appears to be looking both down and up simultaneously!
