    Summer Skies in Norway


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Jill Thorton is a cartographer from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, who captured these images of the summer sky in Stange, Norway, during a trip in the summer of 2013.

    Thorton said, “It was a truly breath-taking place to be, and I just walked around the countryside for hours getting shots of the rolling green fields, but mostly with the clouds and skies as the main focus."

    When I went to Norway in June last year, I walked away with some of the most beautiful pictures I'd ever taken. I was staying in the countryside an hour north of Oslo, on the eastern shore of Lake Mjosa--Norway's largest lake. The ironic thing was that people were telling me, "Oh, this isn't the pretty part of Norway." So basically, the ugliest part of Norway is still one of the most beautiful places in the world!

    The pictures above were taken on various walks I went on...the third picture (a panoramic) was taken moments before a hailstorm hit--you can see it on the right.
