That's the local name of the mountain ridge in the background.
From Norway's second largest island Senja, around midnight in June.

Oh, these are really nice.... There's supposed to be quite a good scrambling route up Breidtinden (the highest peak on Senja), which I was planning to investigate at some point.

Really beautiful, Bjorn. I won't be joining the scrambling party, however.

These shots are taken just outside a parking lot ..... Still, doesn't matter for the enjoyment of the captures.

Scrambling would almost certainly not be for the benefit of photography - parking lot wins on that front, I'm fairly sure...!

Be careful in the mountains on Senja.
In my youth I got stuck near the top of this mountain over Mefjordvær, and needed help to get down.....

It's a beautiful place.

My grandmother grew up on the other side of the fjord, in a house outside the left edge of this picture.

Really? Was that the place called Strandby, or do you mean the village Steinfjorden?

Strandby. She later moved to Kaldfarnes, a few fjords further south.

I like the expression "a few fjords further south". That's how distances are measured on Senja. :D

Fantastic - I particularly like the first one with the golden water.
