Photographer's Note

This is the little village of Bø, along the beautiful Flakstadpollen, near the town of Flakstad in the Lofoten islands.

This was our second day in the islands, and after managing to drive 35 km in 12 hours on the first day, we aimed to drive straight from Svolvaer to Å (160km), the Lofoten's southermost city, without stopping on the way (and then, we would be able to take our time going back up). We almost did it, but when we drove along Flakstadpollen, I just had to stop. This 800m-mountain, falling right into the fjord, the incredible colors of the water, the snow, the small houses, it was breathtaking. The water in the front of the picture is very shallow and that's where the color comes from (you can see it well in the Google map, if you zoom out a little).

When we drove back in the afternoon, the tide was low and instead of this turquoise water, there was only muddy sand (but it was still very beautiful).
