This weekend I have been visiting a Photofestval i an little harbortown called Kristiansund in Norway!
The festval is called "Nordic Light" and have been presented every year for some time now and starts to be known over the world. http://nle.no/no/hjem
It have several famous guests, wellknown photgraphers and local ones to. It is organized by NSFF, The norwegien society for Photography http://www.nsff.no/cms/index.php?page=forside
Is a fantastic happening with a lot of great exhibitions, workshops,speakers and a lot to learn, enjoy and to be inspired of!! To hear this wellknown and great photographers and see there work is amazing!
I went there with my friend Aud, another member of our cameraclub. We went there by boat, fast catamaran, along the coast from Trondheim to Kristiansund, an amazing trip on the sea, near montains and small islands in a weather wich changed every ten mínutes!!
We stayed at the hotel where all the people who attended the fatival stayed and we get to see several of the celebrities and talk to them! That was exiting!
Kristiansund is a lttle town which is built on 4 islands with bridges and boat taxi between them!We had a great time and went from exhibition to exhibition.
Here are some pictures from our weekend!
