The magic of the Lofoten Islands. 

Lofoten Islands. How much has already been written about them. How much more will there be? In my life I have met people who were disappointed in the cities of Europe, but I have not met people who would not want to return to Norway in the Lofoten Islands. Do people call these places by different names? "A fairy tale beyond the Arctic Circle, The magic of Lofoten, The most beautiful islands in the world, World's end."

Each season has its own special state and magic.


Lofoten is made for photography. The magic of light and color, the magical patterns of clouds never repeat. Great reliefs of mountain ranges and fjords

In winter, Norway gives the traveler-photographer the Northern Lights. The overflows of the sky, painted in different colors, against the background of snow-capped peaks.

The amazing island of Senja in Norway.

Lofoten and Senja are the most photographic places in Norway. Therefore, during this photo tour, we use to the maximum every spectacular point of these fantastic places.

These islands are especially great for lovers of mountain scenery. There are about 50 pointed peaks on the island of Senja.

Three of the bottom - Hesten, Segla, Kvanan. These peaks of power and are magnificent, and the view of these mountains in the summertime is reminiscent of New Zealand and the Dolomites. These peaks cannot be reached by car, and you have to walk. The routes are not difficult. Climbing some mountains does not take much time, this allows you to quickly get to the top point you need for photography.

 

Summer and winter are different beauties and of course different opportunities for photography.

The Lofoten Islands and Senja are good locations for both horizontal and vertical panoramas, an excellent opportunity to use a drone for both video and photography.

Daylight hours in summer in Norway are 24 hours. I took pictures at 1am in Norway even without a tripod. The sun does not go below the horizon at night, and the whole space becomes like a soft softbox. We can say that all night in the summer in Norway is a regime time. You come back after an evening photoset, have a bite to eat, and again for a photo hunt. Well, no expanse for a landscape photographer!

 

Important: We will not rush anywhere. Our goal is good photos! But there is another important feature - this is the weather, it is always unpredictable for polar Norway. Clouds rush across the sky like crazy. Using the ND-1000 filter will allow you to get the most incredible sky pattern, and emphasize the magic of nature.

Tre Cime di Lavaredo or Segla.

 

 

For me Tre Cime di Lavaredo in Italy and Segla in Norway are the most beautiful mountain peaks to photograph. Moreover, Segla is so seductive that it attracts every tourist of the island of Senja.

 

It must be said that Norway has the largest number of tunnels in the world, including the longest - more than 20 km. So, to get to Segla, you need to drive through several tunnels, where the last one on the way resembles a fantastic quest - a winding road, shabby walls along which water flows, and strange sounds ... The hiking route to Segla is not difficult, where views of all 4 side of the world.
