Sunrise and sunset along the Norway Coast

Sunset approaching Kristiansund

Sunset approaching Kristiansund

To start a few posts from our recent trip to Norway, I’m including some sunrises and sunsets. Above is a sunset with some wonderful clouds above a snowy landscape.

Then below a couple of shots of one of the many bridges that span the fjords and channels which are high enough to allow the Hurtigruten ships to pass underneath them. The clouds have an interesting smudgy appearance which I took originally to be something on the lens, or sensor, until I saw the reflection!

Sunrise on the way to Nesna from Ørnes

Lovely sunrise, colours we normally associate with a sunset quite often.

Sunrise and it’s Nesna next.

Then a couple more sunrises (above and below), the sort of colours I more associate with a sunrise!

Sunrise – approaching the Arctic Circle

The opposite view of a sunset – Trøndelag

I met an Australian who told me to look away from the sunset and see what was happening behind me. I had the pleasant surprise (above); something I’ll look for more from now on.

Finally three “traditional” sunsets; the last two I think are rather special. The middle one I wish I could understand. How does a ships wake create smooth water? I’d appreciate an explanation.

    Lovely photographs splendint in colour. No Lightroom I assume. You have captured the serenity which no doubt left you feeling relaxed and in tune with your surroundings. A feeling of being at peace with the world.

      Thanks Len. Your assumption about Lightroom is of course incorrect! A little assistance was sought. However you’re right about serenity and peace with the world. It was very relaxing.

    Perfect panoramas David, and really delightful blue hour images. Very peaceful. You must have enjoyed yourself. Great to know that you are well and I hope it is the same in our group and further afield.

      I hope you’re keeping well too, not venturing out too far I hope – and yes I hope we’re all keeping safe. We had a wonderful trip; these posts continue through until the last Sunday in April, so you’ve got more to hopefully enjoy.
