Mountain Magic: Shooting in the Lofoten Islands
Reine in sunrise. With little wind and an opening in the clouds to the south-east, we had the opportunity to shoot the village and the iconic mount Olstind bathed in golden light and beautifully reflecting on the lake below.
Perhaps the best known location is Reine, an old traditional fishermen's village. Photographers are attracted to the area primarily to shoot sunrises from famous vantage points such as those in in Reine itself and in Hamnøy, where you have magic light on the mountains and the villages, and with a bit more luck, a beautiful reflection on the lake below. But the Reine area offers much more than that: not only a beautiful variety of mountain-and-cabins sceneries, but access to many nearby secret and pristine locations.
