Photo: Snowy summit of Hustinden on summer night, Flakstadøy, Lofoten Islands. June 12, 2015; 22:31
I’ve already posted a couple other Friday Photos of Hustinden, but here’s one more. Though today it’s a little more relevant as I just released a new hiking guide for this mountain.
When I first hiked/climbed Hustind a few months earlier in February, I imagined it would be a good place to return to and camp on a nice summer evening for some midnight sun photography – but more so, that I just like camping on mountains peaks, as I’m too lazy to get up early to hike up for sunrise. However on my June trip this year I had a few other mountains that were priorities for some new ebooks and other stuff, so I never had the time for that nice summer evening. I did have time though for a miserably cold (i.e. snowing) night with the summit in and out of the clouds, near constant snow flurries and a bitterly cold wind.
And so while I was braving the elements on the Summit, I could see the folks down in Ramberg enjoying a bit of nice evening sunlight. But even so, I’d still rather be in the mountains…
