Gallery 7: The west coast, continued further south

Continued further south: even more fog, a war plane wreck and many Little auks

Even more den­se fog, but we are – again! – at the right time at the right place, the fog is lif­ting, visi­bi­li­ty comes as nee­ded, and the sea is so calm today that we can land at pla­ces today that are usual­ly dif­fi­cult to get to, expo­sed as they are on the open west coast. Unless you are fly­ing, as tho­se Ger­man air for­ce sol­di­ers who lan­ded their pla­ne, dama­ged under an attack on an allied con­voy, near Kapp Bort­hen in Sep­tem­ber 1942. Or as tho­se count­less Litt­le auks which are sit­ting on the rocks north of Horn­sund, crea­ting a con­stant specta­cle and put­ting a spell on every visi­tor lucky enough to get the­re.
