The Best Camera is the Camera on You
Yesterday the whole family went to mainland for a day and two nights – the first time for all of us since we came to the island. We had an appointment with the person responsible for immigration in our area to get the permission for me to stay in Norway for a year. Dealing with the immigration bureaucracy of any country is like trying to get past a Sumo wrestler. I am all sorted now, thankfully. More about this later.
The trip is a 2.5-hour boat ride plus an 1.5-hour car ride each way. I’m neurotic about traveling light, so I didn’t take my SLR. On the boat to mainland, a double rainbow grew out of a town flanked by mountains. The most vivid rainbows I’ve ever seen. I kicked myself hard a few times and hustled to the window with my iPhone. And then on our way back, I kicked myself again looking at stunning crepuscular rays spilling out of the sky.
Here’re the photos. Rotated and cropped only. No retouching.
