In this photography you can see the island Senja. It is the second largest island in Norway with it’s 1586,3 kmÂ².
In the horizon you can see some fata morgana. Fata morgana is an optical phenomenon which results from a temperature inversion. Objects on the horizon, such as islands, cliffs, ships or icebergs, appear elongated and elevated, like “fairy tale castles”.

We have nothing like it in Kingwood, TX
It’s a nice picture, but the mirage shown is not a Fata Morgana (which does involve inversions); it’s a “inferior mirage”, produced because the water is warmer than the cold air. See
for a general discussion of these different types.
