Sunday, July 6

Sunday Gallery visits and something more.

Yesterday the weather changed dramatically within minutes. From 30 C sunshine and almost no clothes to fleece jacket, tropical storm, thunder, lightening and heavy rain making troubles to communication and fires in the city.
The backside of our cottage was almost covered with Flammentanz roses prior to the storm, so I was lucky to catch this photo when the clouds started to gather and became darker. Today the temperature is down to 12 C and we have to make some changes in daily activities. No sun-bathing possible.
Visiting Hadeland Glassverk and Kistefos museum are put on the agenda and we look forward to meet Thore Herambs colorful paintings again.This is called "the Wincdow"Will return with other photos later.
However, I have for some time now promised my wife to present one of Norway´s most spectacular "Landhandleri" (shop) in my blog. I have done it earlier, but when we midsummer this year once more visited Eidsdal on the other side of the Eagle Road from Geiranger, I took the time and shot some photos of this "Brustadbu".From my blog in Norwegian I copy
Her drives ekspeditering på gamlemåten, og regningen settes sammen manuelt av den nå ca. 90 år gamle innehaveren. Butikken har vært i virksomhet fra før 1885 da hans bestefar drev stedet. Deretter var onkelen ansvarlig før han selv tok over. Fortidsminneforeningens avdeling på Sunnmøre i 2002 ga Godt vern-prisen til Tore og Mary Ytterdal for deres arbeid med å holde vedlike landhandelen i Eidsdal. Ekteparet får ros for godt vern av både eksteriør og interiør.
