a photography guide to
SEASONS ON LOFOTEN
The landscapes of Lofoten have been an inspiration to me since my first visit to the Islands almost 15 years ago as a young backpacker spending a summer in Scandinavia. I’m not sure why, but it took me several more years before I made my first steps into exploring the Islands in winter. It was then, that I discovered a truly magical side of Lofoten.
If only there had been a winter guide to Lofoten in those days, I would have saved myself many days of trial and error, with unrealistic expectations of what I thought winter on Lofoten to be. I had seen pictures of snow covered mountains rising from the sea and skies full of northern lights. But as returned at different times during the following winter I learned what could be expected, the light, and what was beyond my control, the weather.
And so I decided to write Seasons On Lofoten – Winter; where photographic inspiration is merged with practical travel advice in the first guide which brings understanding to the unique seasonal aspects of photographing the arctic winter.
