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!
