Photo: Winter Sunrise over Reine, Moskenesøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. January 18, 2015. 12:16
Whoever advised against shooting landscape photos at high-noon had obviously never been near the arctic winter, where in the first weeks of the year, midday will provide some of the most spectacular light there is to photograph anywhere.
This image is from another one of my days guiding for Muench Photography Workshops Lofoten tour. We had already photographed Olstind on a couple different occasions and locations, but as we were on our way to StatOil for some much needed nourishment after a morning along the coast, this light was too good not to stop.
So we popped out of the vans and spread out across the viewing platform above Reine. I keep telling myself I have enough images of this view after nearly 20 trips to Lofoten, but then I get light light this and have to take just one more. Perhaps it’s time I start a website dedicated only to Reine and Olstind.
