Childhood memories

July 20, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I grew up in the north of Norway.  In 1992 I moved to the Netherlands only to return back to Norway again in 2005.  One of the things I really missed while living in the Netherlands was the beautiful and wild landscapes I grew up with in Kvæfjord.  In 2003 while visiting Kvæfjord I took the picture below using a Hasselblad XPan II and a f/5.6 35mm wide angle lens.  The wide field capability of this camera enabled me to capture the beautiful landscape in Kværfjord as seen from Elde, where I grew up.  In the distance one can see the Gapøy island, the mountains at Finnseter and Kinn, and the Andøy island to the far right.  Many photos shown on my site are taken at our cottage which is located on the other side of the Kinn mountains.  Since childhood this imagery has been etched into my memories.  Whenever I have the opportunity I return back to Kvæfjord to view this scene again.
