Mountain Magic: Shooting in the Lofoten Islands

A delicate blanket of clouds caresses mount Festhæltinden, rising above the Atlantic waters. The red houses are traditional fishermen's cabins, now renovated and converted into accommodations.

The Lofoten Islands are a destination I've been dreaming of for a long time. Way up in Norway's Arctic northwest lies a small, yet incredibly beautiful and diverse archipelago, home to some of its most magical landscapes and a truly wonderful winter atmosphere. I visited the Lofoten Islands earlier this year to prepare for for my 'Northern Spirits' photography workshop, and it did not fail to excite me day after day. Pointy mountains rising above deep fjords, cracked frozen lakes, traditional red and orange fishermen's cabins, incredible beaches and much, much more - all of these can be found in this gem of the Arctic. In this article I'll survey some of the locations I visited there, and try to give you a taste of Lofoten's beauty.
