Lofoten Islands Autumn and Winter

What a difference a few months make to the mood of a landscape. This scene is at and the end of the cliffs past the village of Å. It is pretty much the furthest west/south one can easily get on the islands. To proceed further means traversing those mountains in the background, something I’d like to do one day, but better suited for summer.
I’ve found this to be a good photo location recently as there are various places to get down among the cliffs where one can be sheltered from the winds. And in the winter months it’s also a decent location for sunset as the sun will be low in the sky over Væerøy (such as the photo HERE) and finally disappear behind the ends of Lofoten. Lots of other little place to explore out there as well.
