Norwegian Landscapes – Coastal walk in Søndre Jeløy

On a cloudy day, we walked a large donut around the Søndre Jeløy area of Moss, Norway – a city about a 45 min drive south of Oslo. It was low tide along the coast of the fjord and the exposed rocks were quite colorful with sea-grass and lichen. The clouds gave interesting content to the sky and diffuse light to this group of photos.
