Photographer's Note

Raging sea...
I believe I once commented in a note that the winterstorms would be bad this year....well we really haven't had any visible ones yet. All the hurricane force winds have been at night.
Unlike the more known storms that hit eg. the US, the storms in Norway are not strong enough to cause the same chaos. Either that or we simply are a more hardy people!

I took this photo from atop a small hill at Oelberg just outside Sola. We have had strong gale force winds the last week and with hurricane force winds in the night. After the worst wind and rain had died away I took the chance of bringing my camera out.
Fighting through strong gales, sea spray and the search for the right wave crashing moment i was rewarded with this photo.
This place is considered the best place to witness storms, the big rock you can see just off shore is said to be just big enough to stop all but waves larger than 10 meters... so seing this wave crashing in gives a good impression.

The photo is heavily cropped and part of a much larger view, but it is only this area that i consider of any interest.
I hope you like it.
