kaylapotterbaum Throwback to two weeks ago when two fine Brits, @ashjamesphotography and @englishlaw, flew across the water to come explore the fjords with us. We had so much fun chasing the endless summer light into each corner of this region. Pictured here is @ashjamesphotography. He's an extremely gifted photographer who has inspired me greatly when it comes to photography and pursuing excellence in every area of life. If you want some refreshing photo inspiration, check out his work! 4d

kaylapotterbaum Back on mainland Norway after 3 short, but sweet days in Lofoten. Here's an iPhone snap I took yesterday as we passed through the small village of Hamnøy. We've now started our 3 day drive back down to Ålesund and will be stopping for a couple days on the magical little island of Lovund before heading home. 🇳🇴🏼 #Norway #Lofoten 1w

  •   arodblan I've found your gallery right now. It's so special!!! I love your photos (and feel envy too!) ;) 3mon
  •   bigmountainb Nice! 3mon
  •   m0rken Hei. Since you are based out of ålesund, could you recommend any "must see" inn ålesund this time og year? Thank you in advance. :) @kaylapotterbaum 3mon
  •   kaylapotterbaum @m0rken yeah, there are some good spots to see for sure. Depends on how much time you have. I recommend fjellstua, and hiking up Godøyfjellet.. And other spots if you have time. :) 3mon
  •   m0rken Only have two days. But you can do much in two days ;) But is Godøyfjellet free from snow now? 3mon
  •   kaylapotterbaum @m0rken there isn't too much snow up on Godøya. But a little maybe.. I have friends that go up it pretty regularly these days. Also, visit Lyspunktet cafe in town.. And check out Alnes-- the fyr village by the beach on the backside of Godøya. Also, you could hike up Sukkertoppen which has a great view and is easily accessible from town. It's also a quick 45 min hike up to the top. :) 3mon
  •   m0rken Thank you so much @kaylapotterbaum . Lets hope the weather stays sunny. :) 3mon

kaylapotterbaum The evening light in this place is fantastic this time of year. And these days, our daylight is staying until 9 or 9:30 at night. This means my midnight fishing adventures can soon continue from where I left off last summer... #hallelujah #Norway #Alnes 3mon

kaylapotterbaum Uganda. Seriously... What a trip! It wasn't even 2 minutes after I met this little guy that I knew we'd be buddies. He quickly adopted my water bottle and grabbed my hand... from that point on my heart melted into a puddle of happy. What a treasure it was to spend some time in this country shooting for Streamsofmercy.org. I'm soon finished with my edits and excited to share more photos with you all. #uganda 4mon

kaylapotterbaum Can't. Stop. Exploring. // Happy Easter weekend everyone! I'm safely back in Norway now after 12 airport check-in's and many flights these past few weeks. 4 countries, 2 continents and several cities later, so happy to be back home for a while. Here's a photo from a recent hike here in the region. This next week I'll attempt to un-bury myself from all the thousands of photos I need to edit from Oslo, Copenhagen and Uganda. I'll post a few here once I get the chance. #Norway #Godøya 4mon

kaylapotterbaum Hiking up Godøyfjellet last week. This island is one of my favorite places to go in the area. // Today was my first day of photographing here in beautiful Uganda. We went to a school full of orphans and heard story after story of redemption, joy and life restored after such unbelievable circumstances were tossed their way. The organization I'm shooting for has invested so much in seeing these kids get a better life. So amazing to see. I can't wait to post photos when I get home to Norway. So be prepared... These won't exactly be "fjord photos" coming your way... Just the most adorable African babies. 4mon
  •   kaylapotterbaum @jenniewell ok I will! We are in Jinja all week. Have you been here? 4mon
  •   kaylapotterbaum @trinewestbrook oh my gosh I found some babies for you! I'll bring them in my hand luggage for you! can't wait to see you guys when I get back! :) 4mon
  •   kaylapotterbaum @adrianwestbrook yes! Would be great to hang out when I get back! And I told Tribe I'm bringing some babies for you guys in my hand luggage... :) 4mon
  •   jenniewell I went there for a day trip, I had been in Uganda for three weeks & went to The Source cafe & loved their cookies haha! We also took a boat ride on the Nile! 4mon
  •   kaylapotterbaum @jenniewell that's great! We haven't even had a single chance to go into town and look around or do anything. We've been non stop shooting in the villages and the area since we got on the ground so I don't even know what's in town. Haha. We leave tomorrow so I guess I'll have to see it next time! 4mon

kaylapotterbaum Amsterdam. So good to be back in this city. It's been 8 and a half years since I lived here during my photography school and today I was reminded again of the wonderful beauty within this place. Such a great day meeting up with friends and walking the city. See you tomorrow Uganda... #amsterdam #layover 4mon

kaylapotterbaum Here's to that one time that @irenelovund and I attempted to go camping in this beautiful valley... When we opened up my brand new tent (that I flew over from Canada) it was missing the entire top cover of the tent! So it was a star-gazing kind of night... Not the worst thing ever. :) #Norway 5mon
