The Lofoten Islands, that's midnight sun and northern lights. Fish and sturdy boats. Grey/black mountains rise from the deep blue ocean high into the sky. At their feet there are small wooden fishing villages where cod dries on racks. Eagles circle above schools of herring, driven to the coast by killer whales. Otters on the rocks chew on the fish and crabs they just caught. The Norwegian archipelago the Lofoten, located above the Arctic Circle, is considered among the most beautiful archipelagos in the world. On this website photographer Eric Fokke shows why.
On June 8, I was offered a trip with an airplane over the Lofoten itslands. Not the most environmentally friendly way to view the islands from above, but a lot less tiring than climbing the mountain peaks. On this picture the village where we live, Moland, and where our holiday homes are. More aerial photographs of the Lofoten on Landscape
