Picture of rural evening scene in Northern Norway

The days are definitely getting shorter here in Northern Norway! I took this picture 4 PM in the “evening”.
I really love this scene with the combination of mountain and sea (and of course the boatsheds).

A similar scene, in a spring setting, can be seen in this photo.

    Great shot Thomas, when ever I think our winters suck I will think about you have to go thru, the light in the clouds is amazing in this as well.

    I love the clouds, I so rarely get that far north these days to see colour like that. Makes for a great background for the scene and the level of detail on the mountains is great.

    Lovely photo! Especially how the snow on the mountainside and the edges of the roof shine through the darkening skies.
