Photo: Summer afternoon over Flakstadøy, Ramberg, Flakstadøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. June 29, 2016. 19:13
After a week of mostly grey and misty weather, proper summer returned to Lofoten on Wednesday afternoon. Though the forecast called for the low clouds to clear by early afternoon, the clouds remained quite localized, even after midnight, with some peaks perfectly clear while the next range of mountains were completely hidden.
In such conditions, it is not always easy to choose where to go. As I initially though about going up Røren, I was glad to have changed my mind to Nubben, the small hill above Ramberg, as Røren quickly became lost in a sea of clouds for the remainder of the evening.
I normally don’t like roads in my images, but somehow this photo just feels like summer on Lofoten to me as it is a good summary of what the islands are at this time of year.
