Photo from the beach at midnight in northern Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on July 11th, 2007. Click image for larger view.

I love walking the beach at midnight when it is summer. Everything is calm and all you can hear is the sound of the nature; sea gulls crying, waves rolling the beach and the sound of your feet walking the sand. Walks on the beach are soothing for my mind, body and spirit. I recommend it!

This photo was taken with my new sweet wide angle lens. So far this lens is threating me very good ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I envy you. Do you mind if I just spend the day staring at this photo? What a tranquil place with a special magic. You really did capture the beauty.

  2. Thanks for the compliment of asking me to examine your blog. I took a quick look through Photos from northern Norway (

    Initial impression: very good. The panoramic scene at the top is spectacular. Black text on white ground is a good choice – particularly as a neutral background for your photos.

    Nit-picking detail: Your English syntax is about as good as many native speakers (“Walks on the beach is” where “walks on the beach are” would be correct usage). This is a minor point. Your blog is very readable.

    In your “Recent readers” section: I would have made the avatars smaller, if possible, to reduce the size of the section as a whole – but that’s my style. It may not be yours. * Internal links, like “Feel free to check out my other insect photos.”: a very good feature. That makes your blog much more useful for visitors.

    Technical information about the camera and settings: That’s a standard used by many serious photographers. I appreciate the way you put the text of this information in a smaller font: That makes it easier for a casual reader to skip over it, and draws the serious photographer’s attention to it by contrast with the rest of the text.

  3. Norski: Thanks a lot for taking the time ๐Ÿ™‚
    I can’t believe I used is instead of are. Silly me!
    Gonna look into how you get the MBL widget smaller. I’m not very tech savvy so it might take a while.

  4. Fred: Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
    Nope, I haven’t got into stock photography. Might consider it, but it’s hard to get accepted at the big agencies.
    Got any tips on what photo house I should try?
