The picture was taken in the last half of June by Hallingskeid station on the Bergen Line, 3641 feet above sea level.
In the old days, this was used as a market place, where people from east and west met to trade goods and livestock with each other
In the foreground we can see the flower Dandelion who fights his way, even if the snow has barely melted.
Norwegian Trekking Association has a cottage here, and it is widely used in both summer and winter.

+il n'y a pas assez de photos qui nous arrivent de cette belle région du sud de ce pays, c'est pourtant une si belle région où la nature trône encore en maitre.
Jolie photo de la base au sommet, des teintes et des lumières très
Bien vu et cadré.

Good morning Trond, this is a beautiful impression of Norway, where I have found that dandelions grow everywhere. They truly are a wonderful contrast to the snowy peaks in the background, and shine so bravely. I like the way that they, as well as the other elements in the photo are in focus. The overall scene is delightful to look at.
Vennlig hilsen, Amelia
