Lofoten is a group of islands in the northern part of Norway. With its postcard-looking small fishing villages nestled in fjords, dotting a very rugged coast with abrupt peaks rising directly from the ocean, the archipelago is often described as one of the most scenic parts of Norway. The Lofoten, before becoming a popular tourist retreat, is a very important fishing center, especially for the cod (skrei in Norwegian), attracted by the rich food brought by the Gulf Stream. At the end of the spring, thousands of tons of cod are hung to dry on wooden racks.
The light varies very much over the seasons. From 24 hr daylight from May to early August to just a bluish twilight lasting three hours around noon in December and January. In March and September, there is normal daylight hours - 12h day and 12h night.

A beautiful graphical picture of the typical houses of the Lofoten, nicely provided with a floral foreground.
Best regards, Paul

Hello my friend,
well chosen the tight frame with the red houses with their black roofs to create a superb contrast in the scene.The flowers decorate perfect the whole scenery.

Beautiful composition with a contrast between building and the nature, with an amazing cloudy sky. Excellent colours on the facade and excellent focus, POV and composition.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. La répétition des formes dans l'image, la couleur rouge très forte mais surtout le ciel presque noir en font une réussite.

The graphical effect is great here. The richness in the red colour strikes a perfect contrast with the white, while the flowering shrubs serves to soften the composition. Very nicely composed !

mi accorgo solo ora che avevo un vicino d'eccezione con una foto d'eccezione.
Bella, mi piace molto, forme geometriche e colori ripetitivi in un bel taglio verticale, sopra e sotto, cielo nero e fiori che si contrastano.

Bellissima composizione di forme e di colori!
Ricordo la luce limpida delle isole Lofoten, e quelle case colorate.

I've seen your Antelope Canyon shots, but it's this one that attracted my attention. I love the compressed perspective you've achieved with your long lens. And the other added bonus is the frame-filling geometries of these old wooden buildings. The sky looks curiously noisy, however.
