Another beautiful sunset at Levanger. I have not adjusted the colors in this photo. This is the way they were… This is taken at 22:52.

A magic sunset last night, which I almost missed… But here it is.

Death Valley Trip – Driving to Furnace Creek

It’s not really far from BadWater to Furnace Creek, but there were just so many fascinating mountain shapes, and fantastic colors. The photos below will never be able to convey the real beauty of the mountains.

I suddenly saw this fascinating lava sculpture.

This was the only animal I saw in Death Valley. He looked really hot and out of place, and hardly bothered to get out of the roads when the cars came.

November clouds before sunrise

This video shows the view from my office in Trondheim, Norway. It was taken this morning, just before sunrise.

Sunrise from above

Yesterday morning when flying from Trondheim to Amsterdam, I suddenly looked outside, and what a view. The sun was just rising, and cutting through the clouds, and it looked like the clouds were on fire. My camera was in the overhead compartment, so I tried to take a photo using my Blackberry 9700.

I’ve done some adjustments in Adobe LR (Exposure and Contrast, as well as clarity and vibrance).
