In this picture you can see a small fishing boat that is called “sjark” in Norwegian, sailing on the fjord. These small fishing boats are very typical for the fisheries on the coast in Northern Norway and I’m hoping that some day I will be doing fishing from a sjark too. They can be quite expensive to buy especially if you want to buy the boat with a quota for commercial fishing.
The spots over the boat and in the sky are seagulls and not dust spots on the camera sensor/lens 😉

Here are a couple of other pictures of fishing boats on the sea in Northern Norway:

Yesterday we had a beautiful and cold dusk here in Northern Norway. Had to take out the good old camera to capture some pictures of the sunset so I could share it with you all 🙂 I liked how the thin birch tree created a bit of a frame for the scenery.
The mountains in the horizon is a part of an island called Grytøya. The same island can be seen in this picture of the first days of winter last year.

I was taking a walk on the beach when suddenly the sun created some nice light behind the mountains. There was also some reflections in the windy ocean so I had to get down on my knees to take a picture.
The foam and rocks in the foreground makes the composition more interesting to me.

Loved the beautiful light this evening. The harbor is surrounded by a seawall that makes the sea calm and perfect for reflecting nice sunsets. I thank my forefathers (they made the seawall in 1916) for creating good picture opportunities 🙂

Check out this photo of the harbor covered in snow and with more light available.

The sunset from a few days ago made the snow in the mountains glow in shades of red. Had to take a picture of this phenomenon when a star appeared, in the evening, over the mountain peaks.

I’m off to visit the beautiful island Senja this weekend. Hope I can show you all some nice pictures from that place next week 🙂
