Purple Bay Rocks

A little bay, somewhere along to road to the island of Sommaroy, Norway. It’s more than a month since Midsommer now, and even by this time the sun still barely sets. It’s just below the horizon and illuminating the sky just nice for the course of hours.

The sky was beautifully lit and the clouds reflected the sunlight in all shades of red and purple for already more than two hours and there’s no hurry to drive along the coast. It hardly could have been called driving though as we’re stopping every few hundred meters for a new sight and a new image.

Our last stop along the coast was this bay and I spent some time exploring it from various angles. After a few images from a higher vantage point, I finally climb down the cliff to get more successful compositions from ground level. The sea was very calm and together with a long exposure I managed to get the look of image that I was aiming at.

It was worth it and I got a few good photographs down there. Afterwards the road led us back into the mountains and offered much more compositions.
