Picture Story

During a hiking trip in the Lyngen Alps of Northern Norway I hiked through this beautiful valley on the southern part of the Lyngen Peninsula. Although it was early August the fall colours already started to appear. The lower parts of the valley were covered with field of cloudberries which can be harvested in this time of the year. A very good reason for a lunch and photograph break.

From the bottom of the vally I had already spotted some intersting looking solitude trees higher up the slopes of the mountain, and decided to walk uphill to see if I could find a nice composition of these trees in their natural environment.

What I found most interesting and what I realy wanted to capture in the picture was the story these trees had to tell: their perculiar shaped trunks. Most of the trees up the hill had similar looking shapes, and they seem to indicate that these threes survived avelances during earlier years.
