Friday I took the train from Stavanger to Kristiansand. It rained hard, downpour-hard, almost all of the way. The trains are clean, cozy and efficient; the countryside is beautiful and yes, most beautiful of all, it rained—snakes and snails and puppy dog tails or, as my Norwegian dad always said, it’s raining pitchforks and ax handles!
Of course I took pictures the entire three hours. Because when will I ever see this much rain again? I’m sharing these in three separate posts, one for the rain-dimmed landscape, one for the abstract art that emerges, and one for simply the rain in all its own glory. If you need your images clear and scenic you might not like these—but then again you might?
