Life Close To The Arctic

At the request of Dina I create this post.
Most images are shown earlier.
The images are from many parts of Norway,
in different seasons.
Maybe they will entice you to a visit?
It’s unusual for me to to make a post with so many photos.
Please, be indulgent with me!

Twelve p.m. «Mont Reka»


This picture was taken at midnight. The midnightsun gives a sense of daylight. Reka (607 meter) is a mountain in Sortland, Vesterålen, Norway. Rock climbers  love this mountain. Photo taken at the last day of midnightsun in 2012.   –  (Klick on image to enlarge) –

A Pink Hill…


You will find this hill «Strandheia» close to Sortland, Vesterålen. The sun gives the landscape a great colour!

A Common Shag – Phalacrocorax aristotelis


«Common Shag» what a name! It makes me laugh! It must be the best place to see this bird, on top of a pole… In norvegian, «toppskarv» or «småskarv»! My contribution to: «The BIRD D’pot» – «Wild Bird Wednesday» and «BlueMonday» – «RubyTuesday2»

The Pyramid


In a clear day, when the sun disappears, the blue gets fresher and contrast becomes clearer. This pyramid-like mountain appear in Vesterålen, Grytting by Sortland, «The Blue City».

The Weekend in B&W – «Icecoffee»

What do you do when the weather is bad? My nephew invited me to icecoffee at «Miscela Kaffebar» in Sortland.  He really likes icecoffee! This summer I think he has been drinking a lot of this kind of soft-drink!  And, it was good, – like a dessert. But still, I like my double espresso best!

«Himmelsk» – Nyksund

Bilde fra Nyksund tatt den eneste godværsdagen vi hadde nordpå. Motlys og solstrålene som reflekteres i vannet gjorde det litt utfordrende å ta bildet! HER er kan du lese litt reklame om stedet. På finner du mere info. Einige Informationen in deutscher Sprache HIER.
