Dramatic Bridge to Sommarøy

Mike Zawadzki

The small archipelago of Sommarøy is a popular summer destination for residents of Tromsø. Though I found it to be quite charming in the winter too. The small islands and winding roads pass through scenic mountains and small villages. The bridge itself is only one lane, and both sides take turns based on a red light system. Though seemingly remote, Sommarøy has one of the few active restaurants/hotels. Most of the surrounding area an hour or more in each direction is strictly residential. I had this shot framed up before getting back in the car to continue sightseeing. A lucky black bird swooped into the frame and I was able to capture it in a striking position at the top of the image.
