Virtual Paintout still in Norway

The Bridge at Tromso

Tromso is quite close to Bleiksv, one of the other locations I painted in Norway.  They’re only about 100 km apart, but between five and six hours driving time, depending on the ferry... not unlike getting from here in Victoria to Vancouver on the British Columbia mainland. Tromso is considered to be the northermost city (population over 50,000) in the world.

This Streetview of Tromso includes the Arctic Cathedral, which can be seen just to the right of the bridge.  It is called a cathedral just because it looks like it should be one, but is in reality a parish church.
