I have always loved to photograph shipwrecks or old cars. The fading colours, rust, rotten wood; they are all fascinating to look to. You also get interested in the story of those boats: to who they have belonged? What has happend?

In Scotland only a tiny fraction of the original native forest cover remains. The history of this deforestation in the Highlands is long, complex and shrouded in mystery, but we can still gain glimpses of what has been lost.
I spotted this lonely tree on a tiny road on the Isle of Skye. Unfortunately the tree was dead...
As you probably know, the weather in Scotland can change very fast. From little rain to much rain, from wind to storm, but sometimes you have that few seconds lasting moment of a beautiful sunshine
The Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye is an amazing place. It is a collection of waterfalls and rock pools. This pool was for me the most special; the red stripes on the rock were very bright which I had never seen before.
Eilean Donan castle is probably the most photographed castle in Scotland. Situated on an island at the point where three great sea lochs meet, and surrounded by some majestic scenery in the west of the Highlands.
The Callanish stone circle is one of the most complete circles in Europe. You can find the standing stones on the Isle of Lewis in the outer Hebrides. It's a magical place where ceremonies where hold already 3000 years ago.
The first pictures was taken early in the morning when the sun came up, the other was taken in the middle of the night.
It took a long time, but finally again some update to this blog. to travel through Scotland was a wish I have had for many years. Last autumn I made my dream come true!

I really love old cars and trucks. So when I was driving through Tresfjord
and I saw this old Opel, my heart was jumping. Yes, great car on a perfect place.
Northern lights, also called Aurora Borealis. Named after the Roman goddes of dawn, Aurora; and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas.
I have become lately fascinated with big mountains and small houses. The contrast is just enormous...makes you feel small. In this part of Norway, the area of Møre & Romsdal, you have a lot of high mountains. So I will have more treasures to be discovered.
This view was just breathtaking!!! No wind, sun and still snow on the mountains... Yes, Norway is beautiful.
Nice old houses in the village of Åndalsnes. This place is surrounded by beautiful mountains in the middle of a fjord.
Saw this nice couple sitting in the forest....Suddenly I realized the difference between a male and female tree.
Handsome guy though...
