Hey margus-nice to see that you've landed here, great stuff as always.

Strangely enough, Norway looks like Alaska probably will after a 100 years or so of civilazation...we've just gotten started here.

It's that cool, subtle quiet beauty of the land that holds us northerners here. One day the hills are shrouded in fog and the next they might be lit up with bright sunshine..sunshine that isn't always warm. And the sky goes from blue to black without a polarizer, on those days when the air is really clear, without the vapor and haze.

Hey Gnomad!

I'm no geo-evolution specialist myself, but you could be right about the very inland of Norway, but i guess not the coast and the fjords. They're completely different and unique in the world, they've been there before the civilization and will be after. Also the oceanic currents and the landmass (Alaska is a lot bigger) have a very different setups and they draw the real lines in the evolution in a long term, so i guess the real truth what they will be resides somewhere much deeper.

PS: the sky is blue around here in north. With the polarizer, it's extra-blue ;)

Cheers!

Hmm...

Got a be the Santa Claus land, aka the Lapland then:



 
Using old massive medium-format film camera Pentax 67, doing all the b&w development my own to get the speciefic results i need. Negs and slides i do in a official lab coz there's not much to adjust, they just need a precise development. I must say the digital is much more comfty to use, but i'm still a film fart coz it delivers considerably more artistic pictures to my eyes, but it needs multiple times more work (development, scanning, dust removal etc etc) per picture. The small point-and-shoot digital i use a documentation camera (the first pics here), on the film emulsion i do mostly only art.

Cheers.
