#1: The confluence 68N 15E

(visited by Markus Rumpsfeld and Assami Rösner)

03-Jul-2006 -- June and July 2006 were one of the wettest and windiest summers we had during the last years in North Norway. Anyhow there were still a couple of confluences left all located some miles away from land. The plan was to visit the last remaining spots during our boat summer holidays where we plan to travel from Tromsø to southern Nordland along the coastline. On July 3rd we travelled from Lødingen to Bodø crossing Vestfjorden and passing confluence point 68N 15 E at 3.45 pm. It was a wet and foggy day, but nearly no winds at all. The visibility was reduced due to low clouds. Pressure 1025hPa, air temperature 14 °C and sea temperature at 12 °C.

The sea was very calm this day which is a rarity here even in summer. Due to the weather conditions the pictures are not so impressing. On the picture taken towards south you can imagine the mountaintop Mjeldtinden at 427 m on the island “Engeløya” , on the picture toward east the coastline of Lundøya emergeces out od the fog. On a clear day you would be able to see the island archipelago of Lofoten in the west, but today all disappeared in fog. Maybe we will visit the place on our way back if the weather is fine.
