Water Quotography - Norwegian Stream

"If it weren't for the rocks in its bed, the stream would have no song"
Carl Perkins

This quote applies to our lives as well, don't you think? A few rough places makes us appreciate the good times. This isn't the greatest photo, but I couldn't resist because in one shot you have a boulder-filled stream, a waterfall, and glacier. Taken in 2011 on a rainy day hike to the Birksdal Glacier near Loen, Norway.


And, I'll sneak in a little bonus so you can see these fabulous rose-flecked and mossy boulders in the stream. For more Water Quotography be sure to stop by Kelly's place at Living Life in PA for other player links.

I'm not sure you could ask for more than what you have in this watery picture. I'm definitely glad you couldn't resist taking this photo.

Part of my family comes from Norway - one day I'll have to go look them up and see some of those streams along the way!

Perfect for a Water Photo... Wow--what a gorgeous place. I would find me a great big rock and just sit there and enjoy the sounds of that water!!!!

Have a great day, Faye.
