    OT: Season greetings from Norway

    Just wanted to remind all of you what x-mas is supposed to look like
    This post is espcially for those of you that live somewhere where the temperature rarely drops below 20C (70F).

    These pictures were taken around the city of Bodö in northern Norway. Bodö is above the Artic Circle, so the sun disappeard below the horizon in November and won't reappear until February/March. If you think your winter sucks, try going without seeing the sun for 3 months
    (all pictures are copyright of the newspaper Nordland)


    Anyway, I want to wish you all a merry x-mas and a happy new year
    My x-mas wish this year? Seeing the 997 Turbo at the Frankfurt show in September 2005

    Re: OT: Season greetings from Norway

    This is the closest they get to seeing the sun.

    Re: OT: Season greetings from Norway

    This picture was taken in the middle of the day.

    I'm yet to see some Northern lights, although apparently you can see some in northern Scotland.
    Keep fingers crossed.
    Will associate that with a surf trip to Thurso.;)

    I have the "10 min. later" in 1600x1200 since I took that myself, but it's at work. I can send it to you when I'm back at work after the holidays. The others I do not have in high-res unfortunately. (I wish I did)

    Beautiful pictures Don, I wish I lived somewhere where I could watch the sun disappear into the ocean.

    Re: OT: Season greetings from Norway

    Since I'm on a roll, here are two more pictures taken a down by the ocean here in Oslo on a cold, but beautiful, winter evening.

    Re: OT: Season greetings from Norway

    Winter can be cold and bitchy, but the cold, dark and clear air makes killer sunsets

    Re: OT: Season greetings from Norway

    Speaking of sunsets, if you haven't been to the Porsche website lately, you'll have missed this. (My current wallpaper).

    Re: OT: Season greetings from Norway

    Nice shots

    Re: OT: Season greetings from Norway

    beautiful shots especially full moon and northern lights!

    Happy holidays to all on rennteam!
