Photographer's Note

When passing top of the ridge I look down in this valley where the 10 km long lake Samsjøen is located, and the lake is known for its population of fine trout. Many small rivers and streams end in Samsjøen, but there is only one river leading the water out of the lake.

This area has had building restrictions since the early 1950ties, and the only cabins around are converted summer farms and very few in numbers.

In a far distance you can see a thin veil of clouds, that is the haze usually drifting in from the Atlantic Ocean on warm summer and autumn days…

This image was taken as early as September 17 but the autumn colours are already very much present. The moor is turning brownish and the trees are throwing the yellow leaves… However, pines are dominating the vegetation, but trees grow only in locations sheltered from the worst winter storms.

Have a nice weekend all!
