[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last year I made a photography trip to the stunning Lofoten and the white house on the right was my HQ for those days. It is an old Sea house and was transformed to a Rorbeur (sort of guesthouse) in 2005. It was a good centrally located HQ from where I was able to quickly visit some of the stunning locations on the Lofoten. I didn’t occupy the entire house, I just had a small room with a bunk bed and kitchen.

I took this photo early evening just when the sun started to give some soft warm colors. To me this represents the typical fishing atmosphere of the Lofoten.

Visit my latest TL Travelogue and TN Travelogue for more photos of my photography trip to the Lofoten.

Jolie réflection de ce port de pêche, pris sous une belle lumière ...

Hi Niek,
A lovely harbor capture with its tranquillity. I like the diffused lighting and the splendid reflection in the water.
A lovely POV to present this skyline with beautiful mountains at the back.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hello Niek,

Nice reflections with wonderful sharpness & natural looking colour. Good pp work on the sky. I like the comparison between the brown rocky hills at left & the jagged snow-capped mountains at right. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red & blue roofs in the centre. Tfs!

Hi Niek,
A stunning postcard type photo. I can not find anything that you could have done better, may be the image could have been a bit more sharper perhaps?

It does not look real but looks like something from a film set.
