Sakrisøy, Lofoten, Norway

The Lofoten are a chain of islands north of the Artic Circle in Norway. Towards their southern end and close to the little town Reine is a mini island called Sakrisøy. It is perfectly located in front of a bay surrounded by steep spiky mountains that are characteristic of the Lofoten.

The picture was taken from another little island, Olenilsøy, which offers this beautiful view after a little hike up a hill. As there was quite some traffic on the bridges I choose a long exposure shot of 8 sec. to have it disappear and to get some calmness in the picture. I also used a graduated neutral density filter to darken the very light sky. The focal lenght of this shot is 18mm on full format.

Coast at Flakstadøy, Lofoten, Norway

Close to the little town Ramberg, is a mountain called Nubben. Hiking 250 meters up (pretty steep) is definitely worth it: the view is breathtaking! Who would think that this white sand beach is just 2’400 km south from the north pole!

On the way to Nusfjord, Lofoten, Norway

On the way to the famous old fisher village Nusfjord appears the Flakstadøy mountain massif with its impressive and unusual structures. With the clouds and the back light this was a quite dramatic scenery.
