Arctic Lofoten, what’s up with the weather?

We just wrapped up our January 26-Feb 2 photography workshop in Lofoten with a group of photographers from Indonesia, Singapore and United States. The reason behind the title of this blog post is simple, the weather in Lofoten was gorgeous! Where was the winter storms, hail, sleet and flying cows ? What a group of lucky clients. We got for every sunrise and stayed out till well after sunset to catch the twilight/blue hour, and even got auroras 4 out of 7 days (video to be published at a later stage). The fishingseason for “skrei” just started when we were in Svolvær, and we could see them hanging several tons of fish on the racks. It stinks, but the locals say it smells like money.

A fisherman’s commute in Lofoten. Not too shabby eh?

Blue hour in the Ballstad area.

Widagdo and Dharmali (from Indonesia) working the angle to get the perfect shot.

Rebecca from Seattle, US soaking in the moment. Her first time travelling to the Arctic and we think she liked it – even though we taught some her Norwegian, and just the bad words ….whoops!

Rise and shine! Early rays of light at Hamnøy.

What a view the fishermen up here get to experience every day. Mainland Norway far far away.

Joannes from Indonesia wins the award for funniest and most colorful hats!

What a beauty! Wonder how tons of fish this boat has seen throughout the years.

That’s a wrap! Sunset is over and everyone’s happy. Skagsanden always delivers.

Good night folks! Cormorants enjoying the late sunset glow in Austnesfjorden.
