These were captured with my D5100, please view large: A day in mid October, the sun sets over the ocean outside Nyksund in Vesterålen, Northern Norway. At this time of the year the sun does not set in the west, but more to the south. 1: (12-24mm @ 14mm f/9, 1/320s) A light drizzle of snow on the ground lights up the landscape. 2: (12-24mm @ 24mm f/9 1/40s) Nyksund is situated on two islands; panorama after sunset. 3: (A stitch of two mostly overlapping images from the 10.5mm fisheye, f/8 1/40s) A wider view of the ocean. 4: (stitch of two 10.5mm fisheye images at f/8 1/40s)
Yesterday was a stormy day in Nyksund, Northern Norway. This small place is located in Vesterålen, north of Lofoten, and has in later years grown from a ghost town to a small cultural center. First a view of the road that has to be passed to get here, we are looking back east toward Myre: #1 Rough seas (please view large): #2 This splash is probably about 5m tall. I wish a had a scale, but the cormorants had wisely left the rocks: #3 #4 Today was quieter, even with some clear sky at the end of the day: #5 Finally a post card view of Nyksund seen from the mountain peak Nyken on a nice summer day last year. The location explains the rough seas: "A place where no one would think that anyone could live". #6
