SPRINGTIME BY THE ROMSDALSFJORD

It was late May, and I visited my homeplace Isfjorden in Romsdal. We have some cabins there that needed some maintenance before the summer season.

It was a sunny weekend, and on saturday I went on a short photo-trip to Klungnes, one of my favourite photo-spots in the neighbourhood.
