Deep Freeze on Håkøya

Since we returned returning to Norway after Christmas, we have been in a deep freeze of sorts.  The average temperatures in Northern Norway are much higher than we ever would have expected.  January is typically the coldest month with normal temperatures of -4.4ºC, but that is really not that cold.  But following a very cold spell here (-10 to -13ºC) the ocean water started to freeze on shore.  Which made for some beautiful scenery on the small nearby island of Håkøya.

Jack loved running around on the ice and sliding around.  The sun has not been rising yet, but we still have some beautiful sunset and twilight, which made for some gorgeous photos of Kvaløya with mountain reflections.

Here are just a few photos from today:
