One of the biggest towns in the Lofoten archipelago (about 9,000 inhabitants), Svolvaer is located on the island of Austvagoya.
This image was taken from Svinoya island, some 50 metres from my guesthouse soon after arrival, the first "serious" image of the trip. The sunset was also very beautiful that day but it took me by surprise while I was driving from Evenes airport to Svolvaer (I just didn't expect it on a completely overcast day) so I only managed to take a few quick snapshots. Fortunately, with beautiful Lofoten landscapes and attractive light even snapshots turn out to be fairly pleasant to look at. I enclose one in WS.

Zgadzam się w stu procentach z Malgo -- widok jest fantastyczny a ten ciemny niebieski odcień totalnie wciąga! Znakomita praca, doskonała realizacja. Brawo!

Kasia, an impressively detailed and well-exposed shot. The calm night makes for very pleasing reflections on the water, even to the clouds in the foreground. This looks like a lovely place. Thanks.

Hi Kasia - you and Ann both are posting pictures from one of my dream trips, up to the far Norwegian north... this one is a stunner, and you can feel the cold air wafting off it. The lights are nice and sharp which I think actually accentuates the piercing cold feel of the rest. I love the blue hour light on those mountains too, really special. Thanks!

This is truly an outstanding blue hour shot. Not only does it capture the color from the sky itself, but the projection on the mountains and water creates an incredibly strong effect of the days last light. With the harbour lights and their reflections breaking up the dominant color, this all comes together in one pleasing visual. Very well done indeed! Enjoy the new day ahead. All the best.

Fascinante image nocturne des îles Lofoten avec d'étonnants reflets. Le coucher de soleil en WS est très beau également.

jedno ci powiem-samochodem to ja bym przy takich widokach daleko nie zajechal:)to nawiazujac do twojego zdjecia w WS.
Tutaj mamy piekny Blue hour i kolejny raz kiedy zestawienie niebieskiego ze sztucznym oswietleniem dowow daje tak znakomity efekt.
Piekna chwila,az chcialoby sie zeby trwala znacznie dluzej.

The scenery of large parts of Norway, especially up north, is really spectacular in any case, but you help it along with these enchanting reflections and the well used evening light. As always a very carefully taken photo.

Quelle belle photo de nuit. Le point de vue est parfait ainsi que le temps d'exposition. J'aime comment les couleurs ressortent bien avec de superbes reflets à la surface de l'eau.

Ciao Kasia, fascinating blue hour with fantastic reflections, great exposure, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

This brings back recent memories. The night time shot (or it could be earlier as I guess the sun was not up for long) is very impressive with the lights beautifully reflected in the water. There is nice detail in the mountains behind,
Kind Regards, Ann
