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...

These photos were taken where I grew up, a little place called Nordmela, at Andøya Island in northern Norway. I had to drive one hour, to get clear of the clouds, and headed to the west side of Andøya. There were some auroras, as you can see:-)
