Lofoten Islands 2022

Last trips to Lofoten (2003 & 2004) were purely for photography. This year we went mainly for hiking. Ramberg is a great location for exploring Lofoten. Short access to mountain walks, long sandy beaches (including the Flagstad beach with its new surfing camp) and a good grociery shop, 3 cafees and a very nice restaurant at Ramberg Gjestegård. The walks started with Ryten and down to the Kvalvika beach and on day 2 we simply walked along the coast south of Napp. The weather turned against us, so we missed Moltinden (Ramberg) and Mannen (Hauklandstranda).

Luberon Mysterieux (selected photos from the book)

Places  of  magic, mystery and the supernatural.

The Luberon is full of mystery in one form or another. The aim of this book has been to show some of the mystery that still exist in the Luberon and «Luberon Mysterieux» has brought me to a number of locations around the Luberon during 2021 and 2022 in search of this mystery.

Sveits: Leukerbad (le Vallais)

Antoine and Mireille has settled high up in the Swiss Alpes with Nicolas (15) after having lived in the Geneva region all their lives. Leukerbad (Loèche-les-Bains) is 1400 meter above sea level but their hot water (51 degrees) springs has been exploited since before the Romans arrived. All major hotels in the village has their own spa and there is a large communial bath with at least 8 or 9 different pools.

French Alpes 2021: Vallee de la Claree.

We wanted to focus on Nevache (Vallee de la Claree) this time and booked a small hotel high up in the valley (near Nevache Ville Haute). We did 3 long walks:
Camping Fontcouverte: Col de Charbonniere.
Navache Ville Haute: Porte de Cristol.
Laval: Towards Col des Muandes, but cut short because of the snow in June. Returned by a long loop passed several lacs, including Lac Madelaine. Great walk, but problems crossing rivers.

Herføl, an Island formed by the Sea.

 

Herføl, at the intersection between the Outer Oslo Fjord and the open Sea (Skagerrak) you are lured by nature, the harsh and beautiful pebble beaches, glossy rocks and boulders, several wedges, the country's largest collection of spectacular potholes and a heather landscape reminiscent of Norwegian high mountains. Herføl had a customs station and pilotage, and was an important fishing center, but today, it has grown into a summer and tourist center. There are only 14 permanent residents on the island, which makes up only 3 square kilometers.

Vinteren kom til Blefjell godt før nyttårshelgen 20/21 og den første uka av januar ble eventyrlig både med hensyn til været og snøforholdene.
