Old car, new building

Celebrating 17th of May in my old home town, I spotted this beautiful old Volkswagen. The building in the background is the new church, which will be opened later in 2017.

A fine day at Langedrag mountain farm

I love visiting Langedrag. Its beautiful location, the animals, the fresh mountain air, its rough but pleasant buildings all have a very special, soothing effect on me. And there are always new and exciting motives for a hobby photographer like myself. I was there yesterday, it is only about 45 minutes drive from where I live. Below, you’ll find some of the pictures i took, hope you’ll enjoy them.

The house from America

This house, now located at Hallingdal museum at Nesbyen, was built in America in the second half of the 1800s. It was built by a man from Hallingdal, one of many thousand Norwegians who left their homeland in that period to seek a better life across the ocean.
