My World Tuesday





These photos are shot in a small fishing village in Lofoten, northern Norway. The name of the village is Å. This is a beautiful and relaxing place on earth. Although I had some rain, which is normal, this place is worth a visit. The whole Lofoten area is wonderful.

  3. What an amazing place, and such beautiful atmospheric shots. I'm sure I've heard of Å before and seen photos, perhaps in a Noregian cruise brochure. I would love to visit one day!

  9. You captured this little village perfectly Ivar. The vastness of what surrounds it completely enhances all the wonderful little buildings and the red buildings puncuate the landscape perfectly.

    I do believe the rain enhances the shots. The images make me wonder what it's like to live there.

  14. That place is so beautiful but unfortunately probably too cold and windy for me!:-) The red colour really shined here. The first photo was so magical with that grey sky.

  15. Great shots! And a beautiful spot. I can imagine that the fishermen do not find it as relaxing as we do.

  22. Så nydelege bilder!! Kjenner jo nesten sjølukta:-)Ein tur til Lofoten står høgt på ønskelista mi. Hadde sjansen for nokre år sidan, men sidan det var veldig laaang ferjekø så ombestemte vi oss. Det har eg angra på mange gongar sidan. Gjer nok ikkje det neste gong:-)
