Formerly, the beach at Myrland was a place I only visited on rare occasions.  But in the last year, perhaps because I have grown tired of some of the other beaches, I have often found myself walking on its sands.  Or perhaps it is a more fitting location for Spring and late Summer, with the location of the sun setting in the sea.  I don’t kno

Two days after my sprained ankle at Kvalvika beach, I was limited to where I could go.  The light was promising and the day had been a fine one.  I would have climbed a mountain where it possible, but I was still resorting to hobbling around and using one of my trekking poles as a makeshift crutch.

One of the reasons I like the beach at Myrland is that there are large, isolated boulders in the tide line.  This gives the beach a multitude of subjects to use for foreground elements in what would be an otherwise somewhat boring photo.  I think it is now my new favorite beach…
