In this picture you can see a wave crashing over a small headland about 1km away from where I was standing. The small headland is called Hesteneset, directly translated “The Horse Headland”. The headland got it’s name because in older times all the horses in the Northern Norway village called Laupstad used to grass there. Today there are no farmers left in Laupstad and thus no horses either.
Sea eagles, on the other hand, is still around and love this spot as place to scout the fjord for prey. I hope I soon will be able to photograph these majestic eagles!
The wind was so strong that the air was filled with seawater so it looked like there was a little bit of fog in the air. That is why the picture might not look 100% sharp.
This photo was taken the same day as the wave and sailing seagull picture.
