    Norwegian LF gathering underway!

    This year, the last weekend of September (23rd-25th), some of us LF Norwegians will gather in the fairly remote community of Stryn, Nordfjord. The location is chosen parly for it's location halfway between everything, and that it has some of the most spectacular landscapes in Norway. An example is this picture from last September.

    We hope to bring sufficient machinery and chemicals to develop B&W in any size from 6.5x9cm to 30x40cm (that's 16x12" in English), but probably not colour this time around.

    There will be cameras. There will be lenses. I will bring all of mine, and I have lost count... Most of mine are from between 1870 and 1970, so I hope someone will bring something modern too.

    Accomodation is plentiful, there are more guest beds than inhabitants there. As soon as we have an idea of how many to expect, we will select the most appropriate place and make the necessary arrangements.

    Getting there is slightly more complicated, but we can help. If not, we can at least advise...

    Anyone is welcome; contact me for more information as and when available!

    Oh by the way: It's not a workshop, but a "gathering". So participation is free.

    Sounds like excellent fun! Would love to join you but, it is a bit far...and I've already take my "once in five years" vacation this year. Have fun and let us all see some results.

    THIS September? Rather short notice for us Minnesotan's to spring loose. We will already be very busy cutting last-minute hardwood falls for winter heating.

    Will you drink beer in 35-mil shooter's skulls ?

    Will you practice on axe-throwing using Nikons as targets ?

    We would use digihead-skulls, but the capacity is too small for beer

    Oh no, not at all!
    First of all, Nikon makes LF lenses too. So we would use Canons as targets.
    Second, we don't "practice" our axe-throwing - we're born good at it!

    Hmm It sounds tempting and it could be fun to try out LF but I'm afraid its addictive.

    Here's a coupls of links to sites dealing with this area - the first one is the local tourist board: http://www.nordfjord.no/?f=08050001&...d=217&spid=105 for the English page, http://www.nordfjord.no/?f=08050001&...d=217&spid=132 for German.

    And http://www.loeninfo.com/ which is sometimes only Norwegian - I'm sure I've seen the English pages working!

    And Søren - yes, it's addictive. And very contagious - it has been known to infect through internet forums!
