Werner Bollmann - Storm over the colony


Syltefjordstauran on the Varanger Penninsula is one of the largest seabird colonies of Europe and the northernmost breeding habitat of the gannet. I spent a night there in June 2013. The weather was changing constantly, offering light situations that were otherworldly fantastic. I’ve seen many seabird colonies in my life, but this unique place I will never forget, for sure…
