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.
Due to busy work, the website has not been updated for a while. Now then. March brought temperatures well below zero and there is a nice layer of snow. Unfortunately, that resulted in many cars in the ditch, countless according to the owners of the towing cars. Usually there are no injuries, because it's a soft landing in the snow. The fishing is in full swing. Look for new photos in Fisheries and Norway.
