SkyWatch Friday


This is the sunset on Andøya, an island in northern Norway, captured exactly at 00:00 26th of july this year. A wonderful and memorable night. It was an excellent night for staying up late and to fall a sleep in a tent. This place is glued to my mind.

For more skies around the world please visit SWF Homepage, and feel free to join. Have a lovely weekend everybody.

  6. Beautiful shot! BTW, I've been to Trondheim to visit and loved it. I had a great aunt who lived there and I remember doing lots of walking up hills. I live in the US but all of my relatives on both sides are from Norway.

  7. Hi Ivar,

    So glad you are back blogging again. I missed your photos. Actually I like this heavenly and peaceful one more than the Hong Kong one on the Skywatch site. Thanks for helping them out. Hope you'll still be posting lots of gorgeous photos.
