Friday Photo #60 – Rorbu
Photo: Abandoned Rorbu, Vestvalen, near Reine, Moskenesøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. Feb 17, 2017. 17:19
I posted a different version of this building a few months ago. While I had been familiar with the location for many years, and had shot images from the building, I had never taken any images of the building, until this evening.
The last moments of light combined with low, heavy clouds provided the perfect atmosphere to accompany this abandoned rorbu for a scene that I waited years to come across. I like to think I have seen everything Lofoten has to offer, but I have come nowhere close! Nearly every moment of every day is different, week after week, month after month, year after year. I have rarely come across the same conditions in the same place twice. One of the reason I never get bored with the islands; they are always changing!
While I don’t often tend to shoot architecture, this evening was perfect for this building. Even to the detail of the mountain emerging from the clouds in the background. I only had a short amount of time and then the sky opened up for the remainder of the night.
