Stavanger, Norway


Norway was crisp, fresh and different.  A culture of outdoor pursuits, shorter working hours, and lots of time for family.  Instead of going out to restaurants and bars, young people hike along the rugged coastline, walk up the fjords or stay at home and cook.  Water dominates the landscape and most road journeys involve a ferry.  The harsh clear light was great for photography, as were the views.
