Gisundet

The island of Senja is separated from the mainland by a stretch of sea known as Gisundet, which means ‘the crooked strait’ (if that’s not a contradiction in terms!). We spend a reasonable chunk of time driving beside it, both on Senja and the mainland, as these roads are the main routes to the majority of the church buildings outside of Finnsnes.

So it was that on Sunday morning I drove out to Lenvik kirke in Bjorelvnes, north of Finnsnes, on the mainland side. We’ve had quite calm, cold weather recently which has led to the formation of slow moving sea fog in coastal areas – very picturesque, unless you’re under it, when it’s dank and dreary. Here are some pictures:
