|View uphill from the cottage, nearly 1000 meters from sea level|
|Tid for hyttetannpuss utenfor døren - ble avbrutt av en serie med regnbuebilder|
View downhill. A wonderful light Nordic summer sky scenery with a rainbow over the mountain,
while we were doing our cottage-trip-outdoor-tooth-brushing,
|Jeg løp ut på jakt - og fant begge ender av regnbuen!|
View in another direction. I hunted for the end of several rainbows - and found both ends on this one, very close in the mountain area!
går straks over til høst...
Light summer evenings already turn to dark autumn...
Above are a few of my photos after a couple of vacation weeks this summer.
We were in one of the central Norwegian mountain areas,
close to 1000 meters above sea level.
In close surroundings is one of the
olympic cross country ski tracks from -94.
There were snow on mountain tops within some distance,
local rainbows and rain showers every now and then.
During wintertime, the year 1206 a little boy was supposedly brought
across this same local mountain area, as in these pictures,
carried by a couple of brave and strong men, supporters to the political party of 'Birkebeinere'.
The little boy was Håkon Håkonsson, heir to the Norwegian throne,
who was to be saved from men belonging to other conflicting political parties
during those medieval war times,
to protect him until his position was safe and blessed at Nidaros.
I look forward to see the projected movie about this medieval circumstances.
The Norwegian author Torill Thorstad Hauger wrote a youth book about this,
'Sagaen om Håkon og Kristin' (1993), I will recomand this and her authorship.
These days another youth book is projected about this history,
although it has been presented as being made on the background of the film.
