Picture of lighthouse on a snow covered headland in Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera February 8th 2009. Click image for larger view.
Here I have photographed a lighthouse on a snow covered headland. This lighthouse is placed in Oslofjorden in southeastern part of Norway and help with keeping the ship traffic in the fjord safe.
I liked the lonely location of the lighthouse and the other buildings on the headland. Doesn’t it look like a great place to live?
The photo was taken with at 300mm (about 600mm in 35mm terms) with a telephoto lens so it was pretty far away from my location.

Check out my other picture of a wave crashing over a small headland in Northern Norway.

  1. Oh, how idyllic…yes, I would love to live there. I imagine the only sounds would be the sea, wind and birds. And of course the occasional ship horn. Beautiful photo!

  2. Hi Thomas! I love lighthouse pictures. The snow white color is nice. Be sure to stop by my Montauk blog this summer. Im going to take at least 100 more pictures and video. This time on a clear sunny day.

  3. Thats just simply a beautifull photograph. I love how it seems so isolated from everythig else, this is due to the long telephoto lense.

    Cheaky question but could you add my photo blog to your blogroll. Its called Photo Fingers and I update it weekly. I will of course link back to you. Thanks

  4. muito bonita esta composição. Para mim que vivo em uma região tropical, só vejo isto em fotos. Parabens.

  5. Wow! what a great photograph. I would like to be there ever. It’s seems like the dream place.
    Great work.
    I can feel the sound of the sea and the sea birds, the wind whispering in my ears, when I see the picture.

    Beautiful gift of nature.
    Nature, I respect you, love you.
