a photography guide to
SEASONS ON LOFOTEN
The landscapes of Lofoten have been an inspiration to me since my first visit to the Islands almost 15 years ago as a young backpacker spending a summer in Scandinavia. I’m not sure why, but it took me several more years before I made my first steps into exploring the Islands in winter. It was then, that I discovered a truly magical side of Lofoten.
If only there had been a winter guide to Lofoten in those days, I would have saved myself many days of trial and error, with unrealistic expectations of what I thought winter on Lofoten to be. I had seen pictures of snow covered mountains rising from the sea and skies full of northern lights. But as returned at different times during the following winter I learned what could be expected, the light, and what was beyond my control, the weather.
And so I decided to write Seasons On Lofoten – Winter; where photographic inspiration is merged with practical travel advice in the first guide which brings understanding to the unique seasonal aspects of photographing the arctic winter.
Nine years after the release of the 1st edition of this ebook in January 2015, the 5th edition is now available, featuring an updated destination guide to 40 of Lofoten’s most photographic locations and easy navigation via a custom Google map. With over 50 new pages and images added, the 5th edition is a 342 page guide to everything about Lofoten winter photography and travel.
