Thought for the day….”Too many people overvalue what they are NOT, and undervalue what they ARE”
“It is not the load that breaks you down, it is the way that you carry it”.
Norway has been enjoying some fantastic summer weather…with unbelievable temperatures, even in the far north. Not only have there been many long, sunny days, but some days with wonderful clear air too. Today’s photo comes from Svolvaer, the ‘capital’ of the Lofoten Islands, about half way up the long coast of Norway. The photo was taken in the main harbour, and shows the traditional cottage that was previously used by fishermen, called a rorbu. These cabins were traditionally built out over the water, so that boats could moor directly alongside. Many of these have been converted into holiday homes, although the ones in this photo are actually part of a hotel. At this time of year, there is 24 hour sunshine in this part of Norway, so even late evening it is possible to get photos like this. Expect to pay around 200 euros a night for a typical cabin during summer. Taken with the Fuji X-T10 camera and standard 18-55mm kit lens, with almost no editing of the photo. Once again, great colours from Fuji.
and another photo from the archives…some great colours in Mindelo, Cape Verde islands….
