Lofoten Islands & Hurtigruten boats.
Thought for the day….” When you fish for love, bait with your heart, not with your brain” (Mark Twain).
“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work” (Thomas Edison).
Two photos from the Lofoten Islands in artic Norway…both with the Hurtigruten ships in them. One of these boats leaves Bergen every day of the year for the 5.5 day journey up the coast all the way to Kirkenes, near the Russian border. Lofoten Islands are about half way up Norway, at about 67 degrees north (so north of the Artic circle). Fishing has been important here for over 1000 years, now tourism is also important during the very short summer season. The islands have the midnight sun from 25th May until 17th July. In the photos, the Hurtigruten boat ms Trollfjord passes another Hurtigruten boat, ms Finnmarken. Fuji X-E1 camera again, and the 18-55mm kit lens, a great combination. As others have said, the Fuji X-E1 camera makes you want to take photos again.
