Last week we drove to Sommarøy to take pictures of the sunset. Sommarøy is ideal for this, as it’s located on the outer side of Kvaløya with only open ocean to the west 🙂 We had a really nice evening walking on the beaches…
I had fun taking photos of the sunset with my neutral gradient filters, and Paul flew his kite for a while – there was just about enough wind. Sunset that day was at 21:18, but it rises again less than 6 hours later (at 4 in the morning). Although it doesn’t really get dark anymore, the sky turns this intense orange near the horizon – so beautiful!
We climbed Ørnfløya just after sunset to get photos of Sommarøy from above. There was a large flock of reindeer on the mountain too.
I could have stayed there all night, I was hoping the northern lights might make another appearance, but Paul was going on a skiing trip the next day and he was keen to get some sleep 😉 We made it back to Tromsø by midnight, I was tired but very happy 🙂
