The endless variations of patchiness and reflections on the fjord and in the sky keeps one in tune!
A change in the weather from summer temperatures with dirty air from the south and Saharan dust has been replaced by fresh Arctic air and snow showers and very different fjord views!
Evening sun reflections from across the fjord at Stjørdal about 13kms away and the mountains beyond!
This is the best time of year for getting up at the crack of dawn, lots of birdsong too! The sunrise at the moment is about 6 am…..but, in a few weeks, it will be 3 am which is a bit early! The long-term forecast is for clear-blue skies for the whole of Easter week here….with over 10C during the days…cold at nights to start with (it was -5C when the picture was taken) but frosts disappearing in a few days! Should be a great Easter week working in my gardens!
Today the position of the sunrise on the horizon passed the point at Malvikodden on the other side of the bay (81 deg., just north of west). Only 10-11 weeks ago the sun was rising in the south, so it changes by some 10 degs per week on average!
Sunrise over Malvikodden at 06:45
The first rainbow of the year in the northern sky! The position of rainbows is highly seasonal here, but at this time when the sun is low over the southern horizon, rainbows are in the north.
As the moon re-emerged from the eclipse this morning in the west, this was the view in the opposite direction!
