Photo of the Month July 2016 – Lofoten Winter Wonderland

In March this year I led a new winter landscape workshop to the Lofoten Islands in Norway (Read the Trip Report) with long time good friend and fellow landscape photographer Martyn Lucas. If you are unfamiliar with Lofoten let me assure you that the landscapes of these northern islands of Norway are really quite something to behold. Precipitous and ominous peaks that rise straight out of the ocean loom over small fishing villages that comprise of small bright red houses lining the shorelines. With a dusting of fresh snow and arctic winter light the entire scene is akin to a fairy tail location and subsequently the photographic opportunities can be truly superb.

This particular photograph is in no-way unique (It has been shot countless times ) but it is for me ‘iconic’ and captures the splendid beauty of this fairy tale like location. I plan to return to Lofoten early 2018 and will have more to say about this trip at a future date.Lofoten-4779-Edit
