Sunset

The sunset this evening was so beautiful… We walked over to Telegrafbukta, and watched the sunset reflected in the calm fjord. There were lots of people enjoying the beautiful evening, both on the shore and on the water :)

Paul watching the sunset from the jetty at Telegrafbukta We weren't the only ones enjoying this beautiful evening...

We’ve had another couple of days beginning with morning fog, followed by sunshine and a crispy clear evening… this autumn has been so nice! It’s coming to an end though, most leaves have fallen off the trees and there is a chill in the air announcing that winter is near. Not for us though – our bags are packed and the taxi is booked, Crete here we come! Back in a week, with lots of photos I am sure :D

    I wish you’d send some of that beautiful clear weather this way. It’s been grey and wet for days here in England. And the leaves are just starting to fall!

    I hope you have a great time in Crete. Can’t wait to see the photos! :-)

    Hanneke- came across your ‘blog’ by accident as looking to find best time to visit the fjords and Tromso area for autumn colours. I am very impressed with the blog and your photo’s are fantastic. Hope you have had a good holiday. We are looking for the best time to visit to see the autumn colours and hopefully witness the northern lights. Judging by your experiences it could be anytime from August onwards providing sky’s are clear. Regards Dave nr Salisbury UK

      Hello Dave,
      Thanks so much for your kind comment! Autumn is a beautiful time to visit Tromsø, but the weather is very unreliable. This was the first time (in 3 years of living here) that the weather was so nice for quite a long time. So make sure you stay here long enough that you have a good chance of a sunny day! The northern lights are visible from about the end of August, but then they have to be strong enough to be visible in the twilight as it doesn’t get completely dark yet. I’d say around the middle of September would be your best bet. The autumn colours were past their peak in the last week of September. Guess what, we had our first snow yesterday… about 10 cm! Autumn is such a short season!

    Hanneke- Glad you had a good holiday. Is it unusual to get snow this early? We have had a spell of nice weather in the UK-23 degrees last Sunday!
    Hope you don’t mind me ‘picking your brains’. Our priority is to see the Northern Lights so our options are to;- 1, go on a cruise in early March from London (crossing the Artic Circle) and taking in Tromso and Cape North etc. or 2, travel to Tromso area ourselves (by air) and stay in self catering accommodation in September,hire a car,travel around the area, seeing the autumn(and hopefully the northern lights). The cruise appeals as a relaxing holiday to see everything but are the Fjords still impressive to see in March-or are they a bit dull with no green trees? Unfortunately we can’t find a cruise in Sept. Your pictures make staying in Tromso very appealing!Thanks Dave
