Best pictures of the week: A magical moment on the fjord

We could stare at the image above for hours, not least because of the fantastic colour of the sea. However, more astonishing colours have been caught on camera by readers this week.


Around 500 people live permanently in Olden, located on the southern shore of Nordfjorden in Fjord Norway. Despite its small size, the place is quite well-known in the rest of the country due to its stunning location.

The small village is a major tourist destination because of the busy cruise port, while the Briksdalsbreen glacier, a popular hiking destination, is located nearby.

Rickard Larssen is the photographer who has shared this beautiful picture with us. Hopefully, he went rowing in that boat afterwards.

Here are more of this week’s best images, sent to us via Facebook.

Volandstind, Lofoten

Volandstind, Lofoten

Asbjørg Skagen captured the moment when the rainbow revealed itself on the sky above the mountain Volandstind in the Lofoten islands. The lines in this image are quite special.



Marit Schrøder Elvik writes: “We took this image in August, flying in our Cessna between Engeløy and Bodø in Northern Norway. Løvøy is in the foreground, while Steigen is in the background”.



A clear and starry night in Trondheim, perfect for seeing the Northern Lights dancing across the sky. Luckily, Grete Øiamo was awake and ready to document the whole thing.



A fantastic view from the mountain Husfjellet on Senja, Norway’s second largest island. Thanks a lot for this majestic image, Richard A. Eriksson.
