Friday Photo #236 – Kirkefjord Light
Photo: Rays of light over Kirkefjord, Moskenesøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. July 4, 2017. 22:22
Up to this moment, the light on this day had been somewhat flat and average, and I hadn’t even pulled out my camera so far. That was until I was parked a little ways down the road where I saw a bit of color begin to form deep in the fjord. There wasn’t much time to move, but I knew the place that would probably be best, and so I headed there as quickly as is possible among all the slow driving motor homes and traffic that is summer in Reine.
I knew the light wouldn’t last long, and so I more or less ran to the edge of the fjord. The sun was low, but just over the distant peaks which separate Vindstad and Kirkefjord. Every second the light was changing as the clouds moved and the rain began to approach. Luckily, this light lasted about 10 minutes before the color faded and the first drops began to fall on my camera.
