Picture of barn in Northern Norway against a stormy ocean
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera February 13th 2008. Click image for larger view.
We had some extreme winds today with speeds between 55 and 60 MPH (25m/s). In this picture you can see the view from my bedroom window with the raging ocean behind the old barn. 10 minutes later I was not able to see the ocean because it was snowing small kittens.
It is nice to be inside in a warm house on such a day 🙂

Here is a photo of the same barn during a blizzard.

    The ocean and sky background imagery is amazing. I think the barn got upstaged. 🙂

    That’s one mean looking ocean. Good day to stay inside.

    What rich, saturated colors. The contrast between the red barn, the green ocean, and the blue sky is quite striking!

    Yet another lovely picture and I did not know that it rained small kittens in Norway!

    I am a huge fan of small kittens. 🙂

    Synes rødfargen på fjøset gjør bildet mere dramatisk.

    That ocean looks so angry! And the sky? Wouldn’t want to wait around for what was lurking in there!!

    This is outside your window huh? Wow that is fantastic. I love the contrast of that red barn against the aqua marine background.

    What a view!
