This is one of the most amazing sights I have ever seen! I hope I have managed to recreate a small percentage of natures beauty in this shot.
The time was 11:30PM in the evening and whole sky and sea was red. When you see sights like this you take way too many shots. Afterwards it is really hard to decide on which picture to show.

Will be away for some time so the blog will be not be updated so frequently in the next couple of weeks, but will try to post some photos.
Please let me know if there is anything special you would like to see on my blog 🙂

This photo was shot at 01:30 AM in the night. As you can see it is light 24 hours a day and it is very hard to go to sleep when the weather is so great.
The mountains in the background is part of the island Senja.The village silhouette is Laupstad where I grew up and where my last name origins.

The days are getting longer and longer. This picture were taken at 10 PM in evening!
The nights are also getting very light and as I’m writing this, at 2 AM, the horizon is still orange.
We are just talking about a couple of weeks before the midnight sun is showing up here. I will be capturing it so you might want to visit this site later 🙂

Seeing this in real life was very breathtaking and I have to admit that the picture does not give credit to the sight.

This is one of the moments when you look out of the window and you just have to take a picture. It had been overcast all day, but finally at the end of the day some sunlight came through the heavy clouds.
