Photo: Vågakallen winter reflection, Nedredal, Vestvågøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. February 9, 2014. 08:22
I set out in the morning from Stamsund headed east along the south coast of Vesvågøy. Sunrises in winter occur in a very southernly direction, making the Vestfjord side of Lofoten the best area to be. Though on this particular morning, the day was slow to arrive and the sky was nearly colorless.
With February of 2014 having little to no snow across Lofoten, I was often left searching along the coast for something to use in the foreground. A few days previous to this image I had found some really cool ice frozen into the coastal tide pools around Nedredal. Returning again on this I was hoping for a bit of better light. But as you can see, that didn’t happen.
I still spent most of my time photographing the ice, but in the calmness of the morning, there were also some nice reflections be be found.
