Friday Photo #545 – Twilight Ferry

The beginning of June sees the ferries switch from their winter timetable of 2 crossings per day to the summer schedule, of 8 crossings per day and ferries running round the clock between Bodø and Moskenes. If you are driving to Lofoten from further south, it is likely that you’ll arrive on one of these ferries. And if you’re lucky, it will be a calm sailing like this. If you’re unlucky, well…

Here I was actually returning to Moskenes after a few days out of Værøy, a wonderful small island itself. I would like to travel out there more often, but unfortunately, the winter ferry schedule does not have good connections between Moskenes and Værøy, so its really only possible in the summer.

I always enjoy the challenge of trying to identify the peaks from sea, as it’s not a direction I see them from very often. Here, the highest peak is Skottind, decending to Nonstind/Ballstadheia, the high point at the front of the boat. While the area further in the distance are the mountains around Justadtind.
