Winter way west rock-climbing!

By spotogspindel | November 19, 2010

Bømlo is unique with it´s thousand islands scattered at the end of a big fjord, unique as in the only place in the world where this occurs. And just the other day I went on a motif-treasure-hunt with my camera on my favorite of all these islands!

Well, it doesn´t look so big, does it. Not when there is not anything to scale it against. The big rock in the middle I would guess is about 15 meters, so there is actually a bit of rock-climbing involved here! Freestyle of course. No ropes, no security lines, only my new camera dangling around my neck, and some pretty good shoes with rubber soles. If I were to get involved in anything resembling a sport, this would be it.

If I were to stand on top of that rock in the middle, I´d have 180 degrees of the Atlantic filling my horizon. To the right just outside the picture is “the Castle”, a rock that´s about 70 meters high. On the west-side it goes straight down into the ocean below. It is SO beautiful  and wild out there.

Testing my camera and zoom-lens, figuring out the adjustments, on this bright yellow moss. The white moss is the actual size you can see it, and it takes about 50-60 years to grow that long.

On our way back home, the sun was low, bright and made everything golden. There is no filter or color-adjustment on this photo, just pure natural magic!
