Tromso, North Norway

We fell in love with Norway from a height of 30,000 feet. Flying from Olso to Tromso, a small island city 200 miles into the Arctic circle, we couldn’t believe our eyes as volcanic plateaus, fjords and deep green ocean unfolded from our small aeroplane window.

Our seatmate giggled at our flurry of photo taking, pausing from her book to say “oh, is this your first time then?” before welcoming us her favorite city in the world.

All of these photos are SOOC (straight out of camera) and I haven’t touched a thing on them (bar a touch of judicious cropping). The quality and changibility of light in the Arctic Circle was simply incredible.
