I love winter in Norway, because the weather changes almost every day. In the morning it can snow, but at evening, it can rain. You see animals of different kinds, moose, eagles; there are a lot of things to shoot pics of. And I especially love the winter storms, aurora, and the sunsets.

Take a look...

Here is a map of Andøya Island. On the right side of Andøya, near the north end, I took those whale pics.
