Wide angle picture of sunset on a beach in northern Norway

Wide angle picture of sunset on a beach in northern Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on August 8th 2007. Click image for larger view.

We had a fantastic sunset today so I had to run down on the beach to capture a picture of the moment.
Been a very hot and nice summer day so this sunset was a perfect end to it.
I’m painting the outside of a house so the warmth can get a little too much, but I’m glad I can work outside and not be stuck in an office or something 😉
Check out other sunset pictures from Northern Norway here.
