Norway - Goodbye to the Lofotens

I flew back on Saturday and I am now in Exeter doing some club talks. My case has just been  reunited with me having taken its time on the journey!!

Norway - Rest of Thursday and Friday

I was in danger of breaking my record of seeing the northern Lights on every trip I have taken north of the UK but, on Thursday evening . they appeared over our hotel while we were waiting for supper. So a hurried first course and off the Haukland Bay for a bit of aurora photography.
We returned to this same location on Friday afternoon an lovely soft balanced light and I enjoyed the grasses and sedges. 
I had to miss Friday morning trip to Flaksted as still suffering from chest infection - final images are from a quick visit on our way back from Reine on Thursday.

Norway - Further from Reine and Hamnoy

The weather changed constantly during the rest of our time in the Reine/Hamnoy area. Here a selection to show this and the stunning scenery - bit chocolate-boxy perhaps except the fish heads drying everywhere!!

Norway - Hamnoy Sunrise (Just about!) and Reine Harbour

We left the hotel early and set up on the bridge overlooking Hamnoy. The sky was clear enough where the sun rose to give great colour to the peak and village. We then went on to Reine Bridge and watched as a snowstorm rolled in. Usually I arrange the images so they look good together but here in chronological order to show progression of the morning (very quick edits on most as only have Lightroom with me. There is no colour corrections applied). (The long exposure are 60 - 140 seconds). There were lots of Cormorants, Ravens, Divers, Eiders around and also a patrolling White-Tailed Eagle.

Norway - Trees and Fence

Some images from Wednesday morning - very beautiful soft colours

Norway- Uttakleiv Beach

We spent tuesday afternoon on Uttakliev Beach doing long exposures as the sun went down/ I also ventured over to the frozen river and took some shots. I particularly like the ice plates mirroring the two different peaks.
