Photo: Aerial view over Steine, Vestvågøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. September 24, 2014. 11:44
This autumn I finally had the opportunity to fly in a small cesna and capture some aerial photos of Lofoten.
While it looks like a nice and calm day in this photo, it was actually quite windy and turbulent. I had originally planned to fly over the western tip of the islands, but as I reached the airport and met with the pilot, Moskenesøy was still completely covered in cloud. The east, however, was mostly blue sky.
This was my first, and only, experience shooting from a small plane, so I did my best just to keep my camera level and hopefully get something interesting in the frame as we bounced up and down in the turbulence created from Lofoten’s mountains. Even the pilot commented that it was a rough day to be in the air!
