    I've just been on holiday to Norway and Sweden, and took the following photos while I was there:

    Nice series, I particularly like the last one it conveys a feeling of isolation and testing weather.

    Thanks. The last one is the permanent snow on top of a Norwegian mountain. I was completely unprepared for that, and had to take the photos in my shorts and t-shirt.

    No I am not. My grandparents are. ;) I was born and raised in northern MN. My mom and I hope to get over to see Norway/Sweden someday soon however. She has cousins over in Norway yet that we would like to visit

    My impression from my holiday was that Norway is Beautiful and a bit wild, but Sweden is more tamed. This make the views in Norway more breathtaking, but travelling through Sweden is much faster.
