Nature Hot Spot:
Hardangervidda National Park
Hardangervidda National Park represents Northern Europe's largest high mountain plateau. During our Noway trip, we stayed in Dyranut Fjellstua situated along the E7, an extremely beautiful and scenic highway. On the hill up right next to the motel, I could photograph the golden as well as the common ringed plover. I like the plovers, as they are usually not very shy birds and get very close to the photographer, and often even stand on small knolls to get a better view, for the luck of the photographer. A rock ptarmigan surprised me as it suddenly appeared just in front of me - probably I saw it late due to its great camouflage.
