We’ve had strong winds coming from over the mountains, creating waves (high up in the air) resulting in lenticular clouds. They were very pretty, and the colours were fantastic! I just had to get some photos 🙂 These were taken from the south tip of Tromsø island. There was a strong wind at the beach, the waves were crashing (I had to avoid the spray!) and it was COLD! I had jumped in the car a bit too quickly, and didn’t take enough layers of clothes with me – I only lasted about 10 minutes outside 😀
One of my colleagues took some photos from the roof of the institute, you can find a nice article about mountain waves and lenticular clouds here (in Norwegian).

Glad to see you’re still enjoying the winter! We’re in the middle of an unusually cold spell here in England. Here where I live we’ve seen temperatures down to about -5C, though we haven’t seen much snow yet.
I love that first picture with the sky behind the hut. It’s so beautiful! You should totally send it into http://www.yr.no. I couldn’t see where to send in pictures of specific weather phenomena, but a short way down the page on the right-hand side where it says ‘Her er dagens bilde!’ it seems you can send in pictures of weather in general. You should submit it there. I’m sure they’d publish it. 🙂
Hi Ben! Hope you had a nice Christmas, and wish you all the best for 2011! I’ve been in the Netherlands, where they also had snow and cold, didn’t feel very different 😀
I thought about sending pictures to yr, but as I kind of work for them (yr is owned by met.no and NRK) I wasn’t sure if I’d be allowed 😀 at least not for the competition they were running, of course I can send them general pictures which I do sometimes – they’ve published some of my northern lights pictures before.
Glad to hear it! You’re a great photographer and you should get more recognition. 😉
Hope you had a good time in the Netherlands and all the best for the new year! 😀
