Åkrehamn at Karmøy – one of the finest beaches in Norway

After Stavanger, we left for Karmøy, Åkrehamn to be specific. Åkrehamn was named The Most Beautiful Beach of Norway, back in 2014. We stayed in a small house we rented on airbnb. It was very cozy & had everything we needed.

A few minutes walking takes you down to the beach.

A glance back towards the house.

And then the beach reveals itself.

And sheep, lots of sheeps, everywhere.

The sheep near our house played mind games with us, staring into our windows, even into our souls (if we had one) – for hours.

But the beach itself is fantastic; fine grained sand & clear water.

Colorful chairs like the ones below are seen several places all across the beach.

An old piece of rope. Strange what catches a photographers eye.

I also discovered an old boat lying in the grass and got to test the bokeh of the Fujinon 16mm f/2.8 lens.

And look at that sky! Man, I love those skies.

As with several other places we visited on this trip the sky was impressive and massive due to the quickly changing weather.

And more colorful chairs…

My wife had to try out that chair. It was a little too big.

And then for the main part of the beach. As the weather got better and the sun stayed out for longer periods of time, people started appearing as well.

My wife stole my X-T3 with the Fujinon 18-135mm lens (read my review of the lens here) while I played with the X-T30 and the Fujinon 16mm f/2.8 lens.

The weather changed all the time; from sunshine, to rain, to cold and windy and back to sunshine again. One evening there was this strange, glowing light on the water in front of an island. Even the sheep had to check it out.

In conclusion; our stay at Åkrehamn was great and we highly recommend a visit.
