Lofoten, Norway

Here is a picturesque evidence of why i so much love Norway!


this is just one of the most breathtaking spots on Earth ive seen...you know, its more of a tradition to have views of sandy beaches at some sea or ocean, with palms and coral reefs, to which people usually refer to as breathtaking and paradise on Earth...well, for me, this could be just one of those spots...even though its far up in the North...its just magnificent! and i got this card thanks to one of the kindest people i had come across on postcrossing, who absolutely satisfied my hunger with Norwegian cards...and its not just any kind of cards....its a pile of amazing cards...and hopefully one day i will manage to show them all! Sissel, if you are reading this, i hope you know how many times you made me grin and jump of joy and scream of pleasure when i found your surprises in my mailbox! thank you for everything! it has been a great pleasure to meet you, and i just want you to know that what i promised to send you, is still lying on my desk...*hides in shame*....yeah, im a party breaker, i know...but hopefully it will go into the mail really soon....i just dont want you to think i had forgotten you....its just....life...

and a few details about this extraordinary place....Lofoten is an archipelago (and traditional district) lying withing the Arctic Circle, and experiences one of the world's largest elevated temperature anomalies relative to its high latitude.
It is well known for its exceptional natural beauty! and you cant deny that....this card is here to prove it!

 

the stamp is also a very nice one...it is a part of a set of 5 stamps issued in 2006, portraying the Wildlife in Norway...and here you can see the Eagle in particular.

It is a beautiful shot. I could have believed it was St Lucia or somewhere like that !
