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 😉

third time i’m seeing it and i still love it the best as well. it would be cool to hang that from the cieling above a bed, securely of course, and go to sleep to that picture. very nice work.
Wow. This photo is amazing! It makes me feel so homesick for my parent’s house in Wilderness where we can watch the sunset from the balcony… sigh!
Also makes me want to visit Norway – all the photos here are so full of beauty. Thanks for sharing them 🙂
What an amazing picture! You really have such a gift for capturing the beauty of nature.
Wow! This is an excellent shot. I would love to visit Norway some day. I remember studying in geography that Norway has a lot of fjords on its coastline. Any pictures?
Grace and Peace,

Great pictures. Reminds us of our trip to the Lofoten Islands in 1999 and 2006. We were right on the Norweigan Sea staying with a family of Native Norweigans and loved our stay. Loved your pictures.
I felt so blessed… thanks
