Lofoten islands (2)

More images from my recent trip to Lofoten (see previous post here)…. Without a shadow of doubt, one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I’ll be back on the Lofoten islands (and elsewhere in Arctic Norway) next year, hopefully late winter as well as summer.
Cloudy morning at Sakrisoy, near Reine, Moskenesoya, Lofoten islands

Rorbuer (traditional fishermen’s cottages) at Olenilsoy near Reine, with the mountains of Moskenesoya beyond, Lofoten islands

Sunset over the beach at Utakleiv, Vestvagoya, Lofoten islands

The ‘fort’ at Eggum, site of a German radar station during the Second World War, Vestvagoya, Lofoten islands

‘Head’, a sculpture by Swiss artist Markus Raetz (1992) on the coast near Eggum, Vestvagoya, Lofoten islands

Handstand on the beach at Ramberg, Lofoten islands

Runners on the road near the village of A (or more correctly Å, pronounced ‘O’), the end of the E10 road which winds the length of the Lofoten archipelago (and is also, appropriately enough, the last letter of the Norwegian alphabet), Moskenesoya, Lofoten islands

The village of Reine and the mountains of Moskenesoya, Lofoten islands (the postcard shot)

    1. Thank you Mark. One of those images which just happened – I was standing by the road in the pouring rain, trying to get a decent shot of the sign for the village called A , when they all just went running past, laughing.
