I’ve uploaded the first 50 images to my archive from part 1 of my Lofoten travels this year – August/September. Click on the above link to go to the gallery. As seems to be normal for me with Lofoten, a majority of the images come from only a few different days at a couple locations. Overall, it seemed to be a cool and somewhat stormy summer this year. Lots of wind and clouds on most days, though still a few perfect calm days here and there as well. I think overall I managed a decent variety of images. And when combined with what I shot earlier in the year in February and what I got in Autumn (I’ll post in a couple more weeks), it was a pretty good year on the islands.
I was happy to finally make it to Horseid beach, which may now be my new favorite place on Lofoten. It is absolutely stunning out there, especially if you have to whole place to yourself. Another highlight of the trip was a journey up Ryten for the views back down to Kvalvika beach. Again, absolutely amazing and I’m not sure why it took me so long to get up there – though this being the first time I’ve been to Kvalvika when it actually wasn’t raining might have had something to do with it.
