Photo: Ågvatnet cloaked in winter snow. Jan 2010
In my last post I wrote about returning to Ågvatnet to try and make a ‘better’ version of a photo that I like very much, and was good for a 20 year having only ever taken a high school photo class, but by today’s standards is a bit lacking. Ågvatnet is the small lake behind the village of Å I Lofoten, which is the westernmost village, and end of the road, in the Lofoten islands. It can be a gnarly tourist trap in summer – the road ends in a parking lot after a 1.5 lane tunnel and it can be stuffed to the brim with motorhomes on a nice July afternoon. So I usually avoid the area at this time of year. Though that being said, I’m not usually on the islands in the summer anyways.
Anyhow, here’s a few images of the lake during other parts of the year: winter, spring, and autumn. The autumn image is the closest I’ve come to my first photo, yet as you can see the boat is not exactly in top form. The Rainbow towards the left of the image is from the rain that would soak me in another minute.
