Sunset scene during the spring in Northern Norway – Picture taken from bedroom window

Sunset scene during the spring in Northern Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera May 16th 2008. Click image for larger view.
In this picture I have photographed a sunset late in the evening (at 11 PM) from my bedroom window. I love this view and I never get tired of looking at it 🙂
Notice all the snow in the mountains that you can see in the horizon (if you click on the picture to view it large it easier to see the snow). We are still a bit away from summer here in Northern Norway and spring has been pretty cold so far. It will hopefully get warmer here soon so a cold Norwegian can get a tan 😉

Exposure: 0.008 sec (1/125)
Aperture: f/6.3
Focal Length: 22 mm
ISO Speed: 100

    The sky in Norway is so gorgeous in most every photo I see, I’m just going to have to find a way to make a trip to your country just to take photos and enjoy your sky!

    This is such a dynamic picture, Thomas with very nice colors. I like it. You have still some weeks to go to get a tan…don’t worry.:-)

    Hej!

    Mycket stämmningsfulla bilder du postat på sistone. 🙂 Har du flyttat till Oslo än eller är du kvar där uppe bland de höga fjellen?

    Har du tid över får du gärna ta bort min gamla blogg ifrån din “Blogroll” och lägga dit min nya adress som finnes i adressfältet ovan.

    Ha det bra där uppe. 🙂

    / Johan

    You’ve got a very breathtaking view from your room. Amazing!

    I love sunset shots. Your’s is simply amazing. The clouds created a very nice texture to your photo.

    Wow, you are lucky to have that view of the sunset. I have too many trees where I live and can’t get a clear view of sky.

    Good for the Soul…. 🙂
