Picture of first sunlight shining on snow cowered mountain peak in Northern Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera January 31st 2008. Click image for larger view.
In this picture you can see the first sunlight here in Northern Norway this year, shining on a 1000 meter tall mountain peak. I loved the way the fresh snow on the top made the mountain peak look like it was made of white bricks.
If you click on the picture and look at it in large format you can see some enormous icicles hanging from the side of the mountain.

Check out this picture to see the mountain peak in full size.

    I have a number of relatives in Norway and my mom stayed there for awhile and there’s only one thing she could say about the place. Such a beauty! 🙂 I’ll be coming back for more photos. God Bless!

    I love your site and photographs which are just gorgeous and intriguing. I always wonder what other places in the world are like and your site makes me feel like I’m getting piece of Norway right here at home.
