Over the years, I’ve spent a lot of time exploring Norway, on foot, by car, by boat, by plane…you name it. This collection of photos is comprised of my favourite moments through the countless trips, thoughts that they evoke and interesting facts that I’d learned. It’s an ongoing project and I hope that it won’t end any time soon.

This image made me think of this fun scientific fact - you were on Mars, the sunrise colors would have been reversed. The sky around the rising Sun would have been blue and the rest of the sky - brownish. 
The ever-present fine dust in the Martian atmosphere absorbs blue light and scatters the warmer colors, coloring the sky well away from the Sun a familiar ruddy hue. At the same time, dust particles in the Sun’s direction scatter blue light forward to create a cool, blue aureole near the setting Sun.
