Lofoten – Haukland Beach

Haukland beach in winter, Lofoten islands, Norway: Travel Landscape stock photography

Haukland Beach winter, Lofoten islands, Norway.

When the sky is clear, the light as this amazing diffuse glow to it.  Due to being so far north, the sun travel at much more of a horizontal angle than what occurs as one approaches the equator.  So due to this, the period of ‘sunset’ or ‘sunrise’ light is extended into hours, not just minutes.  In early January, the sun barely rises above the horizon so there is not really any direct sunlight, more like a 4-5 hour sunrise-sunset until the darkness of night comes by about 2:30-3:00 pm.
