Pictures of the week: There goes the sun

There’s a few weeks left until the midnight sun appears. Still, there's nothing quite like a beautiful sunset to create an evocative photograph.

The picture at the top is taken by Monica Hellum, and is from Sørøya - the green island - in Western Finnmark. Indeed a stunning image.

All the photographs here are sent to us through our Facebook page. Thanks a lot for all contributions, and if you have a share-worthy photograph from Norway you can send it to us here.

Here are the rest of the best pictures of the week:
