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.

The youngest lambs in our neighbour's stable are literally jumping to go outside. The older lambs have been outside every now and then for a few days. The weather was wonderful this week. But the last few days regularly showers come over with wet snow and it may become a bit too cold for the smallest lambs.
