Time for a landscape picture showing off how nice the summer in Northern Norway can be. The seagull flying over me is a great black-backed seagull. You can see a close up photo of this type of seagull here.
I really liked the fluffy clouds and the morning fog that is about to disappear from the mountains. Looking forward to next years summer 🙂

I took this picture of the beautiful sunset back in July when the weather was warmer here in northern Norway. Been very chilly here lately so I wanted to see a reminder of warmer times 🙂
Notice the tern that is about to land on the rowboat. It was a bit stressing to capture the tern exactly when it was landing.

Here is a sunset photo from the same evening.

As you can see in this photo, summer has not completely left northern Norway.

These rocks are part of an old seawall that protects our boats against the wild storms that can hit northern Norway in the autumn and winter.
You can see the seawall with waves beating against (and over) it in this photo and in this photo with more calm weather.

These flowers are called Yellow Loosestrife (Lysimachia punctata) and they flower late in the summer. I photographed the flowers in my grand mothers garden where I find lots of interesting stuff to take photos of.

Picture of cottongrass (Eriophorum) growing on a marsh in northern Norway

I liked the light on this marsh so had to photograph the cottongrass (Eriophorum). The sunlight came seeping trough a small forest that was growing at the outskirts of the marsh. I think cottongrass is a beautiful plant with its fluffy appearance.

This photo was taken at 9PM in the evening so the sun was pretty low. 2 hours later the sun had gone behind the mountains and mist started to appear on the marshes. Check out this photo of the mist. One of my personal favorites 🙂
