Panorama of Tromsø

In late August 2001, I went on holiday to Tromsø, northern Norway, for a week. Here's a few photos. All were taken by me with a Canon Powershot S10 digital compact. Click on any for the full size 1600x1200 jpeg (the panorama above is a composite of 5 photos, and rather larger at 6000x912).
