Photo: Olstind winter sunrise, Toppøy, Moskenesøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. January 22, 2015
I’m not sure if I will ever have enough images of Olstind, and when I think I might, I’ll drive by and see light like this. There is a good reason that this is Lofoten’s, and perhaps one of Norway’s as a whole, most iconic mountain peaks. Rising like an Egyptian pyramid directly from the fjord, mountains don’t get much better in my opinion. Although someone had do go put a salmon farm at the bottom of the mountain a year or so back, which is a bit annoying!
With the southern oriented January sun, Olstind catches the first morning light, making the Reine area a good location to photograph in the mornings. And for Olstind specifically, there is no shortage of locations from which to aim your camera at the mountain.
