Best pictures of the week: Nature awakens after its long winter sleep

Easter is on its way, and the best pictures of the week gives us a mixture of sun, ocean and the snow slowly starting its silent retreat in large parts of the country.

The image at the top is from outside Hitra, Norway’s largest island south of Lofotoen, known for its good oportunities for fishing and abundant bird life.

Thanks a lot to the photographer, Marcin Szpryngiel!

Here are the other best pictures of the week, sent to us via our Facebook page:

Vega, Helgeland

In 2004, the Vega archipelago's cultural landscape was inscribed on the UNESCO List of World Natural and Cultural Heritage as representative of «the way generations of fishermen and farmers have, over the past 1,500 years, maintained a sustainable living in an inhospitable seascape near the Arctic Circle, based on the now unique practice of eider down harvesting».

Hafjell, Gudbrandsalen

The combination of superb skiing, exciting challenges, delicious food, and the nearby and well-known city Lillehammer, is probably what makes Hafjell one of Scandinavia's most popular places to go skiing. This image, shot by Frank Halberg, highlights the quiet beauty of the place.

Sørøya in the extreme north of Norway is one of Norway’s most beautiful islands, and a favoured destination for anglers looking for cod of record-breaking proportions. Thanks for the photo, Monica Hellum!
