Photo of the day – Norwegian wildflowers

Norwegian wildflowers are the subject of today’s Photo of the Day. Flickr user Tao, Ding took this snapshot of flowers against a striking mountain backdrop in Tromsø, Norway back in July.

I have a nostalgic reaction to this photo. It reminds me of images in early 1980s earth science textbooks, of one of those visions designed to capture a sense of the earth in its full glory. Fun fact: Today’s low temperature in Tromsø is 45 degrees Fahrenheit, or 7 degrees Celsius.

Submit your favorite images to Flickr’s Gadling Group Pool. One of your snaps might just get chosen as a future Photo of the Day.
