Island In The Sky
Photo By Erik Bjørnøy Olsen

  • Title: Island In The Sky
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: Norway
  • Nearest Area: Aalesund
  • Nearest Town: Aalesund
  • Brief Directions: The nearest airport is Aalesund Lufthavn, Vigra (ENAL/AES), approx. 15 minutes by car from the city.
  • Notes: For more information on the the city of Aalesund and the surrounding area please refer to http://www.visitalesund-geiranger.com/en/
  • GPS Longitude: 6.19
  • GPS Latitude: 62.47
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: The city of Aalesund is located on the west coast of Norway. After a few warm summer days it is almost guaranteed that fog will come rolling in from sea, and this was the case the day this photo was made. The photo was taken from a popular viewpoint on top of the mountain "Aksla" and shows the area north of the city covered by thick fog at sunset. The area offers plenty of photographic opportunities ranging from landscape photography and bird photography (Runde island is known for its breeding colonies of Atlantic puffins, Kittiwakes and Northern Gannets among others) to architecture and street photography (the citywas rebuilt in the style of Art Nouveau after a widespread fire in 1904). The light is especially beautiful from late fall and throughout the winter as the sun is low on the horizon and storms offer up dramatic clouds. On clear nights the Northern lights can be seen if the conditions are right.

    I like the realism of your image. So many now are not realistic. The composition is great and just the right amount of post processing. Beautiful.

    Thank you kindly Laura! I'm sorry for not responding sooner, as it's hard to get to a computer right now. I always enjoy the Spring with wonderful colors. I look forward to sharing some new Spring...

    Holly Molly that is just beautiful. That needs to be on the cover of OP magazine. Probably the most awesome image I have seen on here to date.
