Photo: Winter blue hour overlooking Sakrisøy, Moskenesøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. February 2, 2019 Sometimes there is nothing nicer the fresh snow on a cold winter morning.

February 26, 2019. 17:48 Only a month after January’s snowmegeddon buried Lofoten under 1+ meters of snow in a single day, a week of rain in the end of February has more of less washed it all away. Winter is a narrow balance here on […]

Friday Photo #318 – Reine Dawn

The radar was just […]

Photo: Winter twilight at Storsandnes beach, Flakstadøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. January 13, 2019. 14:19 Driving home on Sunday afternoon the other week after a night of storms – the world was now quiet.

After several days of heavy snowfall now and high winds, it is snow chaos on […]
