With lockdown easing here in Norway it was possible to attend an exhibition of treasures loaned to a local gallery by the closed National Gallery. There were some real Norwegian treasures to look at. A great day out.

PP in Capture One (Yes. I’m trying out new Software. I’ve always missed Aperture and never felt totally at home in LR). Why did Apple give up on it? So, Tim Cooke when you read this, as I’m sure you do each week you will know my pain 😊
One of my fav shots from last summers lockdown summer holiday. It’s an art gallery not far from my home. I had to photoshop out the crowds and a large crane over the trees but overall not a bad result.
As I promised last week I’m going to try and post one shot a week to re-start my blog.
I took this shot during our brief summer holiday last year The wood to build this church was first felled in the winter of 1180 the building began in 1183. Of the approx 1000 churches built there are 28 left Borgund is the one that is least altered.

The Tour of Norway passed close to my doorstep on Wednesday this week. Being I am a big cycling fan I placed myself where I knew they would have to take a sharp lefthand turn. I lay in the grass with my camera ready and shot off a load of images. After the leaders and the main Peloton had blasted past a domestique from the Uno-X team came past, his hunched back carrying several water bottles for his thirsty team mates. He threw his empty bottle away and that was my souvenir of the day…plus this shot. So whomever you were (I didn’t get your number) thank you.
