I did some more scanning of older slides and converted these in Lightroom. Still not the sharpest scans, but they look fine to me for the purpose on showing on my blog. The weather hasn’t been really helpfull either this week to go out and take photographs.
These slides were taken with my Ricoh GR1 on Fujifilm Sensia 100 and I actually used my digital camera to capture. They were made in 2000 in Norway when I traveled from Olso to Bergen for a week.
My intention was to do some extensive hiking in the Geilo area, just north of Hardangervidda.
During the winterseason it is a popular ski destination, but in June it is very quiet.
But the landscape is stunning with nicely curved mountains and beautiful lakes, like the Ustedalsfjorden.
After a couple of days I took the train to the city of Bergen on the west coast of Norway.
At the trainstation I already saw more people then I had seen in Geilo in four days.
Bergen is a fantastic city with a beautifully located harbour.
Some young sailors let there shoes been polished before leaving the town.
While a woman photographs a moose head in Bryggen, the old center of Bergen.
Unfortunately Bergen is just like the west coast of Canada. Most of the time it rains and when I visited the city it was no exception.
