Norwegian Mountains, Møre og Romsdal

Rødlandstua outskirts, full moon, Dec 6 2006

Back to the Rødlandstua main page.

This was sort of an ad-hoc hike. I grabbed the camera and the tripod without knowing that were would be good photo opportunities, and drove to the western outskirts of Rødlandstua, where I had never been before.

The dog and I followed a forest road upwards, first in the northeast direction, then in the northwest direction. We ended up on a ridge half-way between Middagstua and Rødlandstua. I had left the forest road a while ago (carrying the dog), and was now walking around on this ridge, trying to find a place to take a picture of the Ålesund region.

The full moon, the moving clouds and the Aurora Borealis was a brilliant scene. Seldom have I had a nicer evening walk than this.

I stopped by Fjellstua for some Ålesund pics before calling it a day.
