Photographer's Note

After 9 days aboard the M/S Lofoten (one of the Hurtigruten boat) along the coasts of Norway, my friend and I left the ship in the town of Svolvaer, in the Lofoten Islands. We stayed there for 3 days and rented a car to travel within the Lofoten.

We were lucky enough to have three days of incredible weather, and discover the Lofoten in perfect conditions: sunlight, snow on the mountains (fast melting) that gave beautiful sceneries, very very few tourists... It was just magical.

Here is the town of Henningsvaer, with a typical feel of what we have seen during 3 days: mountains with snow, colorful houses, fishing boats, great blue sky, water reflections, wonderful light...

We were staying in Svolvaer and Henningsvaer was the goal of our first day of travel. We almost didn't make it! :^) It's only 35 km away from Svolvaer, but we stopped so many times on the way to look at other landscapes and take scores of picture, that we arrived in Henningsvaer only in the evening... Lucky for us that the days are long in this season.
