Part of my summer was spent in Lofoten, Norway. Lofoten is an archipelago north of the arctic circle that has aqua green waters and white sandy beaches, hence we call it the arctic Hawaii. Lofoten has some of the most beautiful and dramatic nature I have ever seen, and I always discover new places and people there. This image was taken close to a popular surfing beach where the season starts in early fall and goes through the winter time. Who would have guessed…? Lofoten is magical.
Looking back at Mœrvoll.
This is Elena and I at almost midnight he day we arrived in Lofoten. The sun never sets in summer, so you have eternal light 24 hours a day. The midnight sun had just dipped behind the mountain.
Our old fisherman’s house with a white sandy beach.
We discovered abandoned houses where things were left for decades untouched. Receipts and magazines from the 1960’s and 70’s gave us a clue for when people left the houses. Image by Elena Zhukova.
