There is a common misconception among us Norwegians that we have large, pristine expanses of nature. Areas free from, and far from, traces of human activity. But studies show that these areas are shrinking. Traces of human activity are ever more present. Cabins are built closer and closer to alpine regions putting pressure on the wildlife and the ecosystem. Power lines and roads cut through the landscape.
It has been a while since I've done any landscape photography now. But last week I drove across Haukeli along route E134. I took the opportunity to stop and take a few shots. The weather was nice. About 25°C even at 1000 meters above sea level. Just a slight breeze. It was quiet and peaceful.
