A Miracle! — Celebrating 31,000 + visitors with Stetind

Stetind - National Mountain of Norway. I share this symbolically with you to celebrate this new record in visitors to my blog.

Stetind – National Mountain of Norway. I share this symbolically with you to celebrate this new record in visitors to my blog.

January 6. there had been more than 13,000 visitors to my blog since September 30. 2010.

In just three weeks the number has expanded two and a half times –  to 31,648 visits as I write this..! Amazing! In just three weeks. I can hardly believe it. Talking about peak in the statistics!

So – symbolically – I decided to share with you a photo I took this summer of The National Mountain of Norway – Stetind (1,392 meters above sea level). This mountain has fascinated Norwegian and foreigners alike for centuries. And it is hard to climb. It was not until July 30. 1910 that Ferdinand Schjelderup, Carl Wilhelm Rubenson, and Alf Bonnevie Bryn finally summit Stetind (for more information, please read this fine Wikipedia article about the mountain).

So, with this photo taken July 30. 2012 I thank all my avid readers and please share this blog with your friends, if you enjoy it!

PS: almost at the bottom of the blog, there is a link called << Older Entries. I recommend you to flick back through the pages. There are lots more photos than what is presented on the first page. My favorite photo subject is Northern Lights and you’ll find several photos of this fantastic phenomenon there, and you can even follow how I progress in mastering this difficult discipline of photography. I hope you will enjoy these many stories back to September 30. 2010.


Golden Top

The sun is shining on the mountain tops. In not very long, it will shine on the city after a long time in the darkness. First sign of spring.
