Winter has come to northern Norway - Photo of waves on the coast
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera October 11th 2007. Click image for larger view.

The winter has come to northern Norway as you can see by the snow covered mountains in this picture. The snow comes from the north in “waves” and I was able to do some photographing in between all the snow.
I love photos of moving water so had a great time standing at the shore trying to capture the waves as they came crashing in.
Loved the splash in this picture.

Focal Length: 11 mm

    The blues and whites mix well in this great action shot of the water.

    I really like the action of the spashing water and the crispness of color. I can almost feel the chill in the air.

    I like the splash, too. I can almost hear it. Looks like it’s still nice and sunny — ‘day’ sun, not midnight sun yet.

    Winter is finally arriving in Salzburg too :-). Good photo, but I would like to see the sky a little but more.

    Hi – this is a perfect picture for a concept I’m trying to convey on my photo tribute blog. May I use this, fully credited and linked? Please contact me via email if you have any questions or concerns.

    As someone has already said, I can almost feel the ice in the air. It’s a very effective photo. Lovely.

    I like the ‘caught in the act’ look of the crashing waves, and the sky is great behind the ocean.
