[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The road between Åndalsnes and Geiranger in Norway is called "The Golden Route". Dramatic and exciting is a short description of this road, whith the official name
This is the heart of Romsdal, a very attractive area with great mountains and a rough nature. The mountains which encircle the Trollstigen road are enormous. Names like Kongen (the King), Dronningen (the Queen) and Bispen (the Bishop) confirm their majesty in this mountain world.
A few kilometers further,on the deep mountain sides, the road does a total of 11 hairpin bends up to Stigøra. The road is closed in the winter and opens in May or June, depending on snow conditions. Walkers can enjoy the breathtaking views by following the historical Kløvstigen path.

Here, at the left, is a view on the mountain Bispen (1462m) and close behind you see the summit of Kongen (1614m). On the right side you see Stibbotthornet.

Hi Ruud,
Magnifique paysage, vraiment! Excellent composition and point of view. I like the opening on the mountains in the back. Area where I would like to walk! Thank's
Best regards

Hoi Ruud,
Ik vind het altijd weer een plezier om naar je super mooie foto's van Noorwegen te kijken. Het mooie ruige open landschap vind ik erg aantrekkelijk. Dit is ook weer een mooi voorbeeld van een onaangetast stukje Noorwegen. Je compositie en het licht zijn erg mooi in deze foto.

Hello Ruud!
Very nice landscape with an interesting note. In this composition I like especially the very good DOF which allow to see details not only on the FG but also in other "plans" of photo.
Best regards from Poland,

Nice alpine scenery Ruud. Depth of field is excellent, sharpness, exposure and natural color is really good. You did well with the polarizer for an horizontal shot... no unevenness.
