Picture of bad weather on the west coast of Senja in Northern Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera January 27th 2008. Click image for larger view.
I was visiting the island Senja this weekend, but the weather was really bad with blizzards hitting us all the time. In between the snowfalls I was able to go outside and have a look (and take a few pictures) at the ocean in turmoil. In this picture you can see the west coast of Senja where the island meets the Norwegian Sea and next piece of land is Greenland. The waves can be massive if the wind come from the right (wrong?) direction.
The mountain on the left is called “Teisten”.

Check out some of my other pictures of waves here and here.

  1. I am never disappointed when I come to see your photos. This one made me feel even more chilly than I already was. 🙂 It is only about 68 degrees in the room I am in, and the photo makes it feel about 68 below zero!

  2. Helloooooooooooooo!
    I am coming on an expedition to the Arctic in June.
    It would be great to have a cup of tea with you.

    Your photos are brilliant!
    My mummy has you on her blog.
    I have a blog now, do check it out sometime.

  3. Gorgeous photo! I love the blue cast to the entire shot — makes it seem even more cold that it may have been (but probably WAS). I’m sitting here shiverring!


  4. Yeah- Senja again, I need to find some free pictures of Senja the island for my daughter Senja’s scrapbook. Don’t worry I won’t snag yours, I think it will be very interesting for her to know that there is an island named Senja. (That is once she can talk about it.)

  5. Great shot. The colours really do portray how cold it is there. I was in there in late November, frozen half stiff, but it was worth it to get some pictures at by the lighthouse at the tip of Husøy. I’m impressed by the people living there…
