Picture of rural winter scenery in northern Norway – The sun has just come back

Picture of rural winter scenery in northern Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on February 15th 2007. Click image for larger view.

In this photo you see the house where I lived my first 12 years. It looks very idyllic in this winter scenery, doesn’t it? The place where the house stands is called “Solhaug”. In English it would be called something like “Sun Hill”.

The picture was taken on 15th of February so the sun had just come back here in northern Norway. The sun was still very low in the horizon so that is why it creates this beautiful and special light.

Check out this photo of the same house, but from another angle where you can see how close it is located to the ocean.

  1. This view reveals strong similarities with New England. I did not grow up on the coast, and the coast is pretty much built up anyway, but I did grow up in wooden house in the country. And we had a great view of the local mountain from the bathroom upstairs. The trees included maples and birch, but there were a lot of pines too. I know Norwegians did not settle in New England, but I suppose the availability of wood for building has something to do with the similarity.

  2. Eu gostei muito, sempre que vejo suas fotos fico imaginando como é a vida das pessoas aí, é muito diferente daqui… e muito bonito.

  3. Great Job!
    It’s not a surprise!

    I go to put this photo in one of my blogs…
