Picture of sunset within a winter forest in Northern Norway

Picture of sunset within a winter forest in Northern Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera March 14th 2008. Click image for larger view.
I was walking in the forest the other day when the reflection of the sunset started to glow on the snow around me. I had to take a picture of the beautiful scene with the trees covering the sun making a natural filter for my camera.
If you look at the photo in large size you can see some spots where the snow has melted and some old grass is peaking through. Spring is right around the corner here in Northern Norway 🙂

Check out this picture of snow covered trees in a scene looking a bit like The Chronicles of Narnia.

  1. Breath taking – thanks for sharing Thomas. The view is wonderful – so nice, collarful and quiet with golden or fire full sun!

    Good to know spring is in the air in Northern Norway too 🙂

  2. I like the feeling of the sun in the middle and surrounded by snow. It’s a fusion of cold and warm feeling.

    Excellent shot!
