  4. Beautiful scenery in my home country, there’s no doubt about that. This summer I’ll be heading up to the North of the country with my son, then a long weekend in Belfast before I go on a road trip to the West coast of Norway. ๐Ÿ˜€
    I’m looking forward to it.

  28. Stunning shots all round, Jane. Love the Sunset Celebration and Power ones. Very majestic sights. Really like the Norwegian proverb. So much truth to that. Nature shares its beauty with all of us, and so many of us find peace and calm just by looking at it. Also, I have a block of chocolate beside me that I’m eating. I’m sure someone will be happy if I choose to share it with them ๐Ÿ˜€ Wonderful work as always in both colour and BW, Jane.
