Picture of moon over a snow covered Senja – the second largest island in Norway

Picture of moon over a snow covered Senja
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera December 27th 2007. Click image for larger view.

The moon was very beautiful today so I had to take a picture when it was about to disappear behind a mountain on the island Senja. Senja is the second largest island in Norway with its 1586,3 kmร‚ยฒ. I see the island every day in the horizon so that is why Senja often appears in my pictures.
This picture was taken midday so you can see how little light we have right now, but the days are getting longer and longer ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out my other pictures of the moon:

A late merry Christmas to everyone!

  1. What a fabulous shot! I personally can’t stand cold weather (we do get winter – but nothing like your winters!), but I have always loved cold weather photography oddly enough! Thanks for sharing your photography with us!

  2. This is really one of your better shots. Good to see that there is something about the heavy clouds covering this part of Norway.

  3. Lovely picture and how well you’ve captured the nature in its blue shine – dramaticly good ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yea, we’ve past winter solstice so the days are getting longer, day by day.

    While I’m here: Thanks for your friendship in Blogsphere – wish you a great 2008!

  4. Yowza, your eye for nature is amazing! You’ve captured a magical moment… this is the type of scene i would imagine in a dark fantasy. The kind of tale with mythical creatures and the like. Great shot, I wish I could see it in person!

  5. Your island like Indonesia languages. Indonesia languages having word “Senja”. Meaning between afternoon to night.

    Big moon and good color .. blue and white. I always see big moon (full moon) in top my home every month. it having white color, very light. It is beuatiful.

    Your place, always snow ?

  8. Very beautiful….just like my daughter Senja, Senja was named after my grandmother, Senja Maki, who was born in Finland!
