Lofoten in February? Sounds like a masochist plan. But when I woke up in Svolvaer, I knew I made the right decision. It was the last day before returning home. Having been rewarded with exceptional photographic conditions over the last week I was hoping for an ultimate gift from nature, and there [...]
