For Cee this week – New Delhi Annonser
Paula, at Lost in Translation, asks us again to find traces of the past. In Lofoten this summer, we experienced what is said to be the oldest and most authentic fishing village (fiskevær) there is – Nusfjord. Dating back to the 19th century… the village is still alive with rorbuer and everything. We spent some […]Read Post ›
For Cee today – these colours lead me to the sea…but also to a Bhutanese farmer’s kitchen! Mountain lakes almost always have these hues of blue green. There are many minerals co-operating to make it work. A fascinating colour.

This is a U-shaped valley in Lapland in northern Sweden, and one of the most familiar and famous natural sights of the mountains there. Driving towards the Norwegian border, we left lake Torne Träsk behind us heading for the […]Read Post ›
