Picture of first snow in Åtinden - mountain in Northern Norway
Taken with Olympus EPL-1 digital camera September 8th 2012. Click image for larger view.

The autumn is getting closer and closer. Today when I woke up there was snow in on top of the highest mountains here in Northern Norway. The mountain in this picture is called Åtinden and it is 1108 meters above sea level. This summer has been pretty cold so it is no surprise that we already are seeing signs of the winter to come. But this snow fall will not last and probably melt away later in the day.

Please see my other mountain pictures here.

    A great atmospheric scene. I love how the cloud shrouds the mountain. I also enjoy photographing meteorological phenomena. Once again a great image.

    We had such a hot summer here in New York. I would not mind some snow soon 🙂
