Out of the Jurisdiction: Train to Bergen

It's tricky taking photographs out the window of a train moving fast across Norway's forested mountains.  You have to identify, aim, pan, focus and fire in that split-second before
a nearby tree or utility pole leaps in front of you and spoils the picture.


Looks like Edward Hopper got here before I did.



 A frequent kind of scene in the first third of the trip, often blocked by the nearby trees.


The stations always seem kind of cosy.


This simple church was a favorite.



A snow field -- on June 23, just about the longest day -- above the tree line.

You've done well to get so many well-composed pictures - I'll not ask how many you had to delete! :)

Beautiful scenery.

A wonderful medley of photos that gives us a good view of the countryside. Each one is a small glimpse into that world.

Great shots Jack and such pretty scenery.

These are fabulous, Jack! Are you heading on a cruise up the coast? I know several people who have done that and they raved about it afterwards.

Lovely photographic captures from a moving train. These are not easy to shoot. They are beautiful pictures.
