Old fishing boat on a calm sea

Old fishing boat on a calm sea
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on June 1st 2007. Click image for larger view.

I find these old fishing boats made of tree very beautiful. Hope to own one myself some day..

Maybe you wont believe me, but I’m standing on a pier with the pretty large town Harstad right behind me. This scenery doesn’t look very urban, does it?
I was staying in Harstad for 3 weeks attending a course and had a real hard time finding things to take photos of. I’m glad to be back home where there are more nature to walk around in 🙂

The mountains in the back are from the islands Rolløya and Andørja (where I live).
