37 Days in Norway
Remembering the journey in May/June 2017 ...
Day 24 (2017-06-17)

On the day before we had passed the small village Sundal. In the morning we returned to it and made a bicycle tour in the Bondhusdalen valley to lake Bondhusvatnet (on the photo). Here we left the bikes and hiked to the far end of the lake. From this trail we could see the icefall of the Bondhusbreen glacier.
Our next destination was Rosendal, about 30 km further south. We visited the park and the manor house of Barony Rosendal. It was the only estate with the status of barony in Norway, given at a time when Norway was ruled by Denmark.
When we left Rosendal at 15:00, it started to rain. A 100 km drive (incuding 2 ferry rides) brought us to Bergen, with a population of 280.000 the second-largest Norwegian city. We knew that it is difficult to find a parking lot for a camper-van there, but as it was Saturday evening and parking is free on Sundays, we decided to give it a try. Actually we were lucky and could park near the Bergen Aquarium.
Kilometer reading: 4882 km.

37 Days in Norway
Remembering the journey in May/June 2017 ...
Day 17 (2017-06-10)

We stood up early at 5 o'clock and drove to the large parking lot at the Preikestolen fjellstue lodge where the trail to the Preikestolen starts. After breakfast we began the walking-tour at 7:45, still in dense fog, but the weather got better soon. As we stopped frequently to take photos, we needed 3 hours to reach the famous Preikestolen plateau, 600 m above the Lysefjord.
At 16:00 we left the Preikestolen fjellstue and returned to the Lysefjord bridge. After exploring this region (the town Forsand and parts of the northern shore of the Høgsfjord and - finally without rain or mist - the southern shore of the Lysefjord) we continued our trip in northwards direction, having a break in the town Jørpeland and crossing the Jøsenfjord on a ferry. This way is a part of the 260 km long National Tourist Route Ryfylke.
Kilometer reading: 3543 km.

Day 26 (2017-06-19)

Driving onwards in eastern direction, we came to the Steinsdalsfossen (see photo). This waterfall is special because you can walk on a path behind the cascade without getting wet.
We now followed another segment of the National Tourist Route Hardanger which runs at the northern shores of the Hardangerfjord and the Granvinsfjord.
In the 7.5 km long Vallavik Tunnel a roundabout has been built. This was an unexpected surprise, therefore my camera unfortunately was not ready to take a photo out of the car.
At 14:30 we arrived in Ulvik at the end of the Ulvikafjord. As heavy rainfall had started, we parked near the church and spent the afternoon in the car. When the rain stopped in the evening, we went for a walk through the village.
Kilometer reading: 5035 km.

37 Days in Norway
Remembering the journey in May/June 2017 ...
Day 30 (2017-06-23)

Before we would return to Kristiansand, we wanted to see the Trollstigen mountain road and the Geirangerfjord. So we drove northwards on the 49 km long National Tourist Route Valdresflye, halting at some places like Steinplassen (where the art work "Rock on Top of Another Rock" can be viewed) and Lake Gjende in the Jotunheimen National Park.
It already had been drizzling now and then, but when we reached the Ridderspranget gorge, heavy rainfall started. Therefore we paused for some hours in the village of Vågåmo.
When the rain stopped in the evening, we continued our tour, taking a gravel road to Lesja. A detour brought us to Dombås. From here we followed the E 136 in northwestern direction through the Gudbrandsdalen and Romsdalen valleys. On the photo you see the Kylling bru, a railway bridge built between 1913 and 1921.
At 23:00, shortly before sunset, we arrived at the Visitor Center at the foot of the Trollveggen, Europe’s highest vertical mountain wall.
Kilometer reading: 6053 km.

Day 20 (2017-06-13)

We drove in northwestern direction through the Numedal valley where we visited three more stave churches in Rollag, Nore and Uvdal (the latter is now part of an open-air museum).
After crossing a mountainous region, we reached Geilo at 16:00. Here we photographed the modern Kulturkyrkje which has been built in 2010.
In Haugastøl, a few kilometers west of Geilo, the 67 km long National Tourist Route Hardangervidda begins. It crosses the biggest high mountain plateau in Northern Europe. We passed lakes with sheets of floating ice (see photo) and rivers with rapids. Last highlight of the day was the 182 m high Vøringsfossen, one of Norway's most famous waterfalls.
We then drove back a few kilometers to an old bridge where we had seen a place suitable for staying overnight.
Kilometer reading: 4233 km.

How do the PERSONAL TOPs of G+ Photos Work?

1) Any photography enthusiast can create a PERSONAL TOP consisting of his/her own Google Plus photographs. This means any existing PERSONAL top has been created by the author of the photographs that are in the TOP; there are no PERSONAL TOPs that were created automatically.

2) Only G+ photographs published by you in one of your Google+ posts should appear in your PERSONAL TOP. This means any posts you have reshared or your own posts without a G+ photo should not appear. No GIFs should be in the TOPs.

3) Contrary to the DAILY TOPs are the PERSONAL TOPs sorted solely on popularity - we use Plus PopRank to sort these. The Plus PopRank formula is: Plus PopRank(of a post) = +1s + (2 x comments) + (4 x reshares)

Example: Let's say that a particular post has 25 +1s, 10 comments and 3 reshares. This means its Plus PopRank is 57 (= 25 + 2x10 + 4*3).

The Google+ TOPs on PhotoExtract

You can find two kinds of Google Plus TOPs on PhotoExtract.com:

1) Plus Extract TOPs - DAILY sets of TOP G+ photographs, which were chosen by an algorithm that combines automatic steps and manual curation. These DAILY TOPs are NOT based solely on popularity, and users with a small number of followers have a chance to be featured in the TOP.

2) PERSONAL TOPs, which contain Google+ photos published by photographer who created a TOP. These photographs are sorted solely by their G+ popularity measured by our Plus PopRank.
