In the land of snow and mountains

I’m off to Norway again for a film shoot. (Lucky me, I do have a fun job!)

If you remember, I was in Roros – up in the mountains in northern Norway – in April as well.

It snowed a lot.

And the icicles were like perfect crystals against old wood.

We will be staying in the same hotel as last time – a fabulous renovated old wool factory.

It doesn’t look much on the outside, but the rooms are wonderful.

(So is the food.)

The picturesque streets are dotted with deliciously bright buildings – most are about 300 years old –

And antique stores.

You can just about see my reflection in the corner of this shot.

It will probably be snowing again this week.

But don’t worry about me – I’ll be in heaven!

For more cool worlds, please visit: Our World.

As I’ll be away for most of the week, I won’t be able to get around to all of your blogs. But thank you so much for your visit!

    Oh Røros is a place where I could live . During the few days I stayed there, I took many photos and like you, I was absolutely overwhelmed by the wonderful wooden houses with roofs consisting of seven layers of turf. You probably saw the miners’museum. I was fascinated by the way these people worked. Have a great time!

    June 12, 2012 at 11:04

  48. What fun! Have a great time , and tell us all about it!

    June 12, 2012 at 11:52

  49. Sounds wonderful and no doubt you will take more fantastic photos to share!

    June 12, 2012 at 12:09

  50. Both a fun and beautiful tour!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

    June 12, 2012 at 12:35

  51. These are beautiful photos, Fiona. The first two look like I can touch them and feel the grain of the wood. They move me physically, and for me that is the sign of an excellent photo. 😀 Enjoy your trip!

    June 12, 2012 at 13:01

  52. Cool shots for the summer here.:)
    Those icicles look like teeth.

    June 12, 2012 at 13:26

  53. it is so hot and sticky here, these shots are like an elixir to me
    I love cold weather
    and in such a wonderful setting!!

    June 12, 2012 at 14:27

    What a fun job you have.
    Enjoy your stay at Røros.

    Love that last shot…not exactly sure what I’m looking at. You seem to be in there and then there’s a bird cage that appears to be suspended in air…very cool! It must be a reflection.

    June 13, 2012 at 14:45

    • It’s me reflected in an antique shop window that has a birdcage in it.

      June 14, 2012 at 05:54

  71. I don’t think I would get any work done…out with the camera all day..

    Stunning shots.

  72. What a great opportunity. I can’t wait to see your next set of pictures. I think a documentary about how you go about your art would be fascinating. Your world is gorgeous.

    June 14, 2012 at 03:18

  73. oh, everything there looks cold, cold. but you picture the scenes lovely, as always… i hope they have plenty of hot chocolate and coffee and muffins and soups, haha, so you won’t shiver too much… btw, is the climate (and temperature) in Norway more or less the same as Sweden’s? both Sweden and Norway a lot colder than your London, Ms. Lady Fi? bother to answer my senseless prattles when you’re less busy.:)

    kick ass in your project and enjoy your stay. warm regards.😉

    June 14, 2012 at 03:59

  74. Härliga bilder! Lucky to go there and get nice views. Norway is beautiful too. I will go there Oct/Nov for drevprov with Tyra.

    June 14, 2012 at 09:30

  75. It’s just so hard to imagine snow anywhere in the world when it’s in the 90’s here… hope you take lots of falling snow shots, I love to watch snow fall! =)

    June 14, 2012 at 15:28

  76. How did I not know what your job is…?:) And I would love to visit Norway – in fact I’m hoping to have chance to get there this summer!

    June 14, 2012 at 23:02

  77. It’s interesting to see that you are having snow there Fi. I would have thought that it was summer now? I enjoyed your pictures – Dave

    June 15, 2012 at 10:39

    • This was snow in Norway in April – I took the pics when I was visiting there.

      June 15, 2012 at 10:52

  78. WONDERFUL pictures ♥

    June 15, 2012 at 16:21

  79. Glad your reflection adds a bit of youth to that antique shop photo Fi! Hope you’re having fun and some adventures too.

    June 16, 2012 at 07:22
