Picture of old boatshed against snow covered mountains in Northern Norway


Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera March 1st 2008. Click image for larger view.
In this picture you can see the family boatshed with some snow covered mountains as background.
You can tell from the battered look that the boatshed have endured countless of harsh storms. It’s tilting a bit to left because of some extreme storms a few years ago that moved the boatshed a good 40 cm (16 inch) from the foundation. I hope it wont fall down over my boat 😉
The tallest mountain in the background is called Ã…-tinden and is about 1000 meters above sea level.

Check out this photo of a decayed boathouse that is about to fall down.

  1. I love your photos and information. My father came from Ibestad in 1926 and he’s 90 now. I show him your updated photos all of the time because it’s the closest he can get to his motherland.
    Thanks for the beautiful shots!

  2. Hey! Beautiful photo! Have you studyed photography?
    Because I recently opened a photoblog about street’s arts! But I never studyed about photograpfy! I need advices! Can you help me? 🙂

  3. Just visiting from Claire’s link to your site…This photo is heart-stoppinly beautiful! It makes me wish I were there (and I’m in beautiful Florida, USA right now, so it would take a lot to make me consider visiting the frigid north)!

  4. Another beauty Jungl, I love the color of the shed.
    It looks like there a few branches pinned against it on the left side….It’s not going down is it?
