I was visiting the island Senja this weekend, but the weather was really bad with blizzards hitting us all the time. In between the snowfalls I was able to go outside and have a look (and take a few pictures) at the ocean in turmoil. In this picture you can see the west coast of Senja where the island meets the Norwegian Sea and next piece of land is Greenland. The waves can be massive if the wind come from the right (wrong?) direction.
The mountain on the left is called “Teisten”.

Check out some of my other pictures of waves here and here.

The winter has come to northern Norway as you can see by the snow covered mountains in this picture. The snow comes from the north in “waves” and I was able to do some photographing in between all the snow.
I love photos of moving water so had a great time standing at the shore trying to capture the waves as they came crashing in.
Loved the splash in this picture.

I captured this great black-backed seagull taking flight back in April. Really enjoyed the color and textures of the ocean. In the horizon you can see snow clouds bringing in a blizzard that are so common here in northern Norway when we have winter.

Check out this close up photo of the great black-backed seagull if you want to see better what this cool bird looks like.

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!
