Picture of golden reflections in water and a snowy stone
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera February 5th 2007. Click image for larger view.

Another picture I took back in February. At this time of the year the sun is only shining for a hour or two and in this photo the sun has disappeared below the horizon. The golden reflections are coming from sunshine higher up in the snow filled mountains. It was a very beautiful sight.

Look closely at the picture. Doesn’t the stone look like a crocodile head?

    Merkelig den brune fargen, var nede i fjæra da sola gikk ned da var alt brunt.

    it’s weird that picture almost looks fake the way the sun reflects from off the water

    What an amazing photo! The water looks like liquid gold. It’s both abstract and natural at the same time. Great work! Cindy

    I love your blog. I think I need to plan a trip to Norway. After all I am a quarter Norwegian. Maybe it’s time to check out my heritage. Thanks for the stunning photos.
