Actually when writing this -Jan. 17 2019 -I'm on quite another trip than up north in Norway. I'm in a small hotel apartment in Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria. But we can't spend all the time on the beach, can we.. -so I still work on the many shots I took on my sept. 2018 road trip -and upload them from here as they come along....

Now the photos have reached the time when I left Reine in Lofoten (I've already added some shots from that beautiful place) -and head back the way I came actually -through the Lofoten islands -before heading back south -home..

I made a quick stop in Kabelvåg. A lovely small place in Lofoten -and took some nice photos in great light given by some dark clouds and deep blue sky in between them..

The next stop where I spendt another night is Narvik... I will write some more when photos from there is added.

These are the albums now where most of the shots from my Sept 2018 trip can be seen:

LofotenOn my roadtrip up north in Norway sept. 2018 -my albums are about to reach Henningsvær in Lofoten. I didn’t sped the night there but passed the road sign.. and stepped on the brakes -backed up and turned to follow the road there… a decision I did not regret!!

Henningsvær is a small place -actually a group of small islands. But when it comes to really experience the northern wild climate and hard work in the old fishing days -it’s a big place anyway! The light was difficult at the time -heavy clouds and strong winds too -with sun burst in between. But did I get the right atmosphere? -Yes I think so 🙂

On my trip to Northern Norway Sept. 2018 I have finally arrived Lofoten. And Svolvær is my first stop.

I spent the night in one of the old fisherman's cabins there -all those cabins are now upgraded of course for tourists and travellers! 🙂 -and equipped with every modern need. But the old walls and atmosphere are well kept.. It was a real pleasant stay!

So was Svolvær! Fantastic nature -sky high mountain tops that vanished in the clouds.. and lucky me had lot of clouds that day! I love grey weather and clouds when shooting -specially in a place like this when we should think back to the all the hard work and lost lives back in time -where 'everyone' went up here for fishing.. in boats not equipped as today of course -nor the men was!...

Northern Norway 2018

On a day late in November I went for a short drive to Torp & Sellebakk -places very close to where I live. Just to see if something useful for my camera might show up. There’s a walk path along the east side of the river Glomma there. Though walking is not too good for me these days -due to his bad back I’m struggling with -I stopped the car here and there for short visits down to the path. And since long walks are bad -I must do the most and best out of the short ones I manage -and use my eyes real well! )


I actually did find a few nice views that day -and also a couple of exciting elements. I will add those findings in the album link below the next few days:
