Lofoten In National Geographic Traveler Magazine

Cody Duncan Lofoten - National Geographic Traveler

I’m happy to have one of my images, Northern Lights over Osltind, in the current issue of National Geographic traveler magazine.

I had seen the image online in the article – about 24 hours of time around the world – my image is midnight, but hadn’t yet seen it in print until I was flying home from Spain on Sunday/Monday. Waiting for my flight back to Leknes from Bodø, I took a quick browse of the magazine section, and they had the US version, so there my image was. Good I didn’t buy a cope (105 NOK, ouch!) as just as I was walking out the door today the postman showed up with a package for me – two copies of the magazine courtesy of NG. Takk!

Northern Lights fill sky above mountains of Lofoten Islands, Norway

Lofoten Images in 2015 Geo Saison Calendar

Northern Lights fill sky above mountains of Lofoten Islands, Norway

For any of you guys in the German speaking countries, a couple of my Lofoten Islands photos are in the GEO ‘Im Licht des Nordens’ 2015 calendar.

The first image is on the cover, a photo of the northern lights I took in October 2011.  It was my last night of a two week autumn trip to Lofoten.  Thus far, the sky had been quiet, not a hind of northern lights to be found.  Though 2011 was a turbulent autumn, so there often wasn’t much night sky to be seen.  But finally with one night left the weather calmed and the sky remained clear.  I could sense that auroras would appear.  The islands’ final gift to me; making sure I didn’t leave empty handed.  They lights were somewhat late to arrive, but when they did, wow!  I stayed on shore to photograph while Roar took the others out on the boat to gaze at the sky from the calm waters of the Vestfjord.  This was the best aurora I had seen up to that point.

The second image from from the summit of Offersøykammen.  Frustrated with my efforts for the day thus far, I decided just to hike up the small mountain and wait for sunset.  With about 40-50 minutes remaining before sunset, a layer of cloud began to develop over the summit of the mountain.  The cloud thickened, but before I was lost in a total whiteout I was given about 15 minutes of beautiful light.  I never saw the sunset, and as I descended the mountain and could see again I discovered that I hiked up the only mountain covered in cloud.  Though I think it worked out for the best in the end…

Lofoten Islands in National Geographic Traveler Poland – February 2014

A couple of my Lofoten images were published in the February edition of the Polish version of National Geographic Traveler magazine in an article about the world’s most spectacular islands, in which Lofoten rightly was included.

As someone who would loosely be described as a landscape photographer; I would rather be an adventure photographer, but I don’t have enough friends to travel with, so am forced to go alone and merely take landscape photos of my travels – or stay at home, the question is often asked: ‘ Would you like to shoot for National Geographic?’

While the answer is an obvious ‘YES!’  Life is not so simple as based upon the opinions of friends and family.  But now I’m proud to announce I now have some humble beginnings within the famed yellow borders.

Hurtigruten and Geirangerfjord, Norway in Men’s Journal – June 2014

One of my Images of the Hurtigruten traveling through the Geirangerfjord in central Norway is in June’s issue of Men’s Journal magazine (US).  I took the image while on a multi-day hitchhiking trip between Bergen and Trondheim (and back) in the summer of 2006 – when I had a lot more free time than money – which is pretty much my same situation today.  I haven’t been to Geirangerfjord since that trip, but my fortune of good timing and weather has made the series of images I took there some of my best selling ones over the last years.
