The extremely warm and sunny weather we’ve experienced in northern Norway this summer (the news reports saying it’s the best in living memory) have apparently made the sea go turquoise and rather murky. Presumably it’s some kind of algae, although I’ve not read anything about it yet. The hot weather has also lead to a lot of thunderstorms (and related fired, scared campers, etc).
Here are some pictures, looking south towards Søreissa and the south of Senja, with the sea and a rainbow. Oh, and the white Mercedes estate (station wagon), is NOT ours!
