Forest floor mushrooms.  I must admit I love this picture because of what it tells you about the landscape of Norway.  There is so much life.  We have just passed one of the hottest summers in 20 years in Alta and yet the ground is still so moist.  Sometimes the ground feels like a trampoline.  A lot of places in Alta has clay and so the foliage grows over on top of it rather than up threw it giving the ground a spongy affect.  Mushrooms are everywhere and most, it seems, are poisonous, but they are so beautiful and quiet.
