Best pictures of the week: Sunset in wonderland

Though the days are still long and bright, incipient autumn colours start to appear – making August a fantastic month to experience Norwegian nature.

If ever a landscape deserved to be called “trollish” or enchanting, it’s this one, submitted by Ernst Solberg.

The photo is taken at Gaustablikk in Telemark (overlooking Vestfjorddalen and Rjukan), and we’re just realising that we feel a tad of envy for those who are lucky enough to enjoy this view with their supper.

Several others have been out photographing the picturesque late summer in Norway over the past few days. Here’s our top five pick of the week.

“It’s been a nice day today. Good temperatures and zero wind,” reports Christopher Robin Jensen from Kjøllefjord. The fishing village sees daily arrivals of the Hurtigruten coastal steamer. We humbly thank you for the picture.

The view from Hamnøy to Olstinden is of the sort that can make grown men and women shed a tear of joy. It’s a popular photo op, this time captured by Rickard A. Eriksson.

Another enchanting scene – this time thanks to photographer Åshild Søderholm. “The green scarf around Earth’s neck” as the poet Rolf Jacobsen so beautifully described Mosjømarka (our translation).

The world’s third best beach is found 80 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, according to The Sunday Times. It’s a romantic place, as is obvious from Tor Yngve Andreassen’s photo. Thank you!
