Photo from a day out fishing on the sea in northern Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera September 22nd 2007. Click image for larger view.

What a wonderful day it was to be out on the sea here in northern Norway. The sea was completely calm and the clouds was amazing so a perfect day for a fishing trip. In this photo you can see my uncle steering my boat to the fishing grounds. Did not catch much fish, but it was a very nice trip on the fjord.

Is it just me or are the clouds and the reflection in the calm sea just down right beautiful?

    That’s a great picture. I spent most of the day fishing myself. The kiddies outfished me today though.

    Looks inviting! I would imagine the surface is not always so calm.

    Great photo, reminds me of when I was a kid. I was raised fishing and seeing this picture made me feel like I was on the water. I agree, the clouds and water really look good. Nice contrast with the boat color.

    The water looks like glass; it looks like it goes right into the sky. Awesome.

    Wow! That is a beautiful picture. I love to fish, but usually we go to the river. I absolutely love being on the water. Peaceful and comforting (even with 2 small children on the boat). ; )

    The contrast of the orange boat against the blue sea is just wonderful. So is the contrast of textures. ~~Cindy
