Photo: Winter coastal twilight, Moskenesøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. February 5, 2014. 15:48
A weird series of clouds had hung over the islands the entire day. While some interesting texture formed from time to time, I spent most of the day doing my best to fight of boredom. In this effort I took to wandering around the rocks on the inner coast of Moskenesøy; sometimes taking photos and sometimes just jumping around and climbing up stuff.
With the arrival of late afternoon a bit of color finally began to appear in the sky. I had wandered down to this part of the coast earlier in the day and so returned once again as the light began to fade and I could open up the shutter for a couple minutes to smooth out the otherwise choppy water of the Vestfjord.
While I like the image well enough, it lacks a sense of place for me. There is nothing here that says ‘Lofoten,’ or even ‘Winter’ for that matter. I would generally like to give a better sense of place to an individual image. But when I view it with the whole of my work from February, it helps tell a little more of the story about the islands.
