With tough mountains that ascent significantly from perfectly clear fjords, wooden lodges concealed among antiquated forest, cascades that breeze through valleys and the opportunity to see the Aurora Borealis, Northern Norway is a scene picture taker’s fantasy.
In any case, it’s Senja and not the famous photography area Lofoten that I as of late chatted with Nikon’s D850; the nation’s second biggest island is as yet something of a mystery and albeit a changing framework could change that, it’s as yet a photography diamond.
Here are my preferred areas that can be found on and close the islan.
Truly, the community of Finnsnes isn’t on Senja, however you need to go through it to arrive at the sole extension that crosses the Gisundet waterway and connections the island with the territory. At the point when you do, it merits halting to visit the town’s marinas. Little breakwaters manage the cost of you the chance to exit onto the water for an incredible view back towards the town and some dazzling reflections.
It may appear to be odd to specify a street in a photography area direct, yet County Road 86 offers some strong photograph openings. Particularly straight in places, the thruway slices through valleys and woods before evaporating into an amazing mountain-lined skyline.
Indeed, an area of the street is so beautiful, it’s been assigned as one of the nation’s National Tourist Routes, fitting the sort of moving street symbolism you’d observer on motivation blurbs, Instagram and in movement photographs. With so little traffic, it shouldn’t take you too long to even consider finding an away from and a protected fateful opening to take the shot.
Tremendous vistas don’t come a lot simpler to photo than this. Basically leave your vehicle at the Bergsbotn perspective – got to by means of the mainstream driving course that breezes around Senja – and you’ll locate a 44m-long stage that stretches out over the valley underneath. From here, you’ll be blessed to receive a sensational perspective on Bergsfjord and its encompassing pinnacles.
Try not to be tricked by the automaton like photography however; notwithstanding the sensational appearance of the raised vantage point, Bergsfjord is one of the most open perspectives on the island. Simply ensure you pack a wide-edge focal point – fundamental when catching the genuine feeling of scale.
This 48 square mile national park has cascades, rapids, coastline and pine forest to investigate. Not exclusively is the scene shocking, yet it’s home to a portion of Senja’s most enthralling natural life – white-followed and brilliant birds, moose, reindeer, otters and seals are for the most part normal inhabitants simply asking to be captured.
Segla is probably the tallest mountain on the island of Senja, and seemingly, its generally photogenic. Remaining at around 640m, Segla takes somewhere in the range of two and three hours to move from the close by town of Fjordgård.
It’s extraordinarily steep in places (attempt a sheer drop into the ocean on one side) so on the off chance that you figure out how to mass a tripod up to the summit for a display, you’re a fitter picture taker than me! The summit gives fantastic 360-degree perspectives on the encompassing fjords and mountains, and out yonder the Norwegian Sea.
Try not to favor handling the last, generally testing, segment of the trip? A simpler to-arrive at edge, just underneath the summit, despite everything gives some stunning perspectives and the opportunity to get some decent reflection shots of the mountain itself.
Simply off the 862 street that tracks Senja’s northern coast is another effectively open perspective: Tungeneset excursion spot. A photogenic wooden walkway extends from the stopping region, over the rough and rough coastline, and completes far enough out to get an unhindered sight of the Okshornan tops.
With rock pools in the forefront, this rugged mountain line – known as the structures a perfect point of convergence for striking scene symbolism.
