Photographer's Note

Though geographical well north of the polar circle, the Lofoten Islands of the coast of Norway profit from the gulf stream and thus have even in winter a moderate climate. The islands are of a stark beauty in an unspoiled and wild landscape with deep fjords and towering mountain peaks. The moderate winters makes it one of the world's best places for photographers wanting to chase the Aurora Borealis.

Allthough arriving a day late due to a strike by Norwegian's pilots this place is a photographers dream and thus the only tourists around at this time of the year where small groups of tripod carrying folks with huge backpacks full of fancy gear.
