Friday Photo #33 – Olstind in Clouds
Photo: Olstind hidden in Winter Clouds, Moskenesøya, Lofoten Islands, Norway. Feb 17, 2013. 17:11
Olstind, probably the most iconic peak of the Lofoten Islands, when you can see it. Taken at the same time an location as last weeks Friday Photo, another gloomy image during the fading light of a short February winter day.
For some reason I don’t imagine I’ll ever have enough images of Osltind. While often times I pass the mountain by if it’s a scene and lighting conditions I’ve previously photographed, when something new is to be found I’ll usually make the effort to hop out of the car, or walk, and see what I can come up with.
I think the calmness of the evening drew me out here on this particular day. I’ve seen the mountain hidden in clouds enough times before, but for some reason, there was something a bit more interesting this time. The sky was heavy, as indeed, rain started falling only a few minutes after this image. But at the moment, the islands were calm. The waters of the fjord sat flat and silent, hardly making a sound on the barnacle covered rocks I was standing on. And so yet another photo of Olstind was taken.
