North Norway duo.
Thought for the day…” The darkest night is often the bridge to the brightest tomorrow”.
“Life leaps like a geyser for those who drill through the rock of inertia”
Up to the Lofoten Islands in Norway for the photo today, and some typical Lofoten scenery. These islands are situated at around 68 degrees north, and inside the Artic Circle. Humans have lived in the islands for over 5500 years, despite the long, cold winters. Fishing was traditionally the main industry here, mainly for cod. The mountain peaks rise to over 1100m, whilst surprisingly, the sea here has a form of coral. As Lofoten is above the Artic circle, then the sun does not set between 25th May and 17 July, meaning 24 hours of daylight. It is also the home of the Lofoten Insomnia cycle race.
The photo was taken late evening, north of Svolvaer, Fuji X-E1 with the 18-55mm kit lens.
And another photo from northern Norway, colourful houses by the sea…another triumph for the Fuji X-E1 camera.
