Winter Shadows - Friday Photo #531

Friday Photo #531 – Winter Shadows

Photo: Shadows on the wall at dawn, Hamnøy, Moskenesøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. February 20, 2023. 08:17

With a clear horizon but low clouds, the sunrise light does not always last long. On this morning with one of my workshop groups it did allow for a somewhat interesting photo: the shadows of our group of the wall of one of the cabins of Reinefjord Sjøhus Rorbuer cabins.

It was a windy morning after a few days of calm. But I could see the horizon tho the southeast was clear, so there would be a brief moment of sunlight at dawn. As the light first lit the summit of Olstind and then traveled down, I didn’t quite expect the moment that happened. There we were – our shadows at least, in the way of our sunrise image. It can often be a problem, our shadow somewhere in the foreground of our photos at sunrise/sunset. Though on Lofoten with a group, I don’t think I’ve ever captured an image quite like this. And I must say, it looks kinda cool!
