Not Just Crinkly Bits and Green Stuff

Adam Pierzchala

Semi-retired, I now have more time to pursue my various interests including travel and photography. I enjoy being in the outdoors with my camera, whether close to home in local woodlands or in exotic places further afield. My preference is for landscape in all its guises, which I now shoot predominantly digitally with occasional outings to shoot retro on MF film.


Am I really here in this wonderful, beautiful setting? A classic calm fjord with crystal blue water lit by soft sun and stunning autumn colour all around? Yes I am, at Ersfjorden on the island of Kvaloya near Tromso in Norway, with a small group of old friends and some new faces. We’ve just arrived on a photo tour with Tony Spencer and David Ward and we were settling into our self-catering accommodation, beautifully located on the edge of and just above the fjord.

    Looks a fabulous trip, Adam and you have certainly come back with a very decent haul of images …….lots of variety on this trip for sure. The colours in particular are rich and eye catching. There ‘s always next time for assimilation although I am coming to the conclusion that only DW sees the world as he does!!

    Thanks David. I suppose I can have a brownie point as long as my work has at least some photographic merit. Now where did I hear that phrase before…

    I can’t think of a more apt word than “magical” to describe the time spent in the misty woodland at Storvatnet and I concur entirely with the on-going dilemma you express at the very end.
