[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After a month of windy but clear skies - everyone was looking forward to the easter holiday. In Norway that is a holiday associated with one thing: skiing! People in cities, towns and villages travel to the mountains to enjoy the spring temperature, blue skies and the endless fields of snow. And so it was going to be this year. BUT two days before easter, the weather changed (as it does...) into snow, sleet, rain and wind. Me and my wife managed to use some hours now and then to run out of the house and go skiing to a mountain behind our house, but that is about it. Most people have been stuck in their houses or cottages, many are even still stuck on the mountain after the snowstorms took them by surprise - and rescue, well, it is waiting for the weather to clear..!

I caught this shot from my house in a little pause in the snowing. It shows the Alappen Mountain covered in cluds and snow. I like the light and contrast between the clouds and the mountain.

Well, we`re waiting for better weather to morrow - the skis are already in the car :)

Hello Torbjorn,
That's some view from your house. I have a similar photo from Utah, which I may post after seeing yours. I like the composition and the almost monochromatic presentation. Well done. Regards,

Hello Torbjorn!
Another nice picture :) Nice winter ladscape with good details and light. I like also a paroramic view, but on the other hand there is a little to much sky of this picture as for me :)
Best greetings and have a nice weekend! :)
