This is a very popular beach in the summer with people coming from all the small villages on Andørja. You can see the sandy part below the white house.

I made this shot because of the dramatic clouds and light streaming through from the sun.
As you can see I’m standing in a river. The combined sound of a river and waves hitting the shore is very nice!

This is the island I come from viewed from the neighbour island Rolla. In the horizon on the left you can see Senja.
The snow is retreating fast 🙂

Hope everyone had a nice Labour Day!

I really enjoy taking photos of the small wonders in nature. Like these crowberries (Empetrum nigrum) that are remains from last summer.

Crowberries is a small evergreen shrub with edible black fruit. They are not used much here, but are getting more popular for making juice and wine.
