Lifjell and Nonsfjedlet

 

Charlie and I climbed Lifjell as the fifth of our 10 på Topp challenge. It runs until November, so we’ll have to get our walking boots on a bit more regularly if we want to complete the ten by then. The weather recently has been beautiful. Marion and I have been taking advantage of the late summer sunshine as often as possible, so lower down the page, there are also some photos of our walk up Nonsfjedlet.

This mast isn't very beautiful, but it is the reason this climb is so straightforward. It's a wide track all the way up.

I found it difficult to capture, but the further reaches of the archipelago were swathed in mist, islands rising from a sea of cloud.

So much sky

And with Marion, a few days later, I climbed Nonsfjedlet

I was fascinated by the flowing shapes of the rocks

And the fledgling clouds that streaked the sky

But my eyes (and my camera lens) kept coming back to the mountains fading into the distance
