Photographer's Note

"...we are now close upon the Norwegian coast... in the great province of Nordland --and in the dreary district of Lofoden. The mountain upon whose top we sit is Helseggen, the Cloudy. Now raise yourself up a little higher --hold on to the grass if you feel giddy --so --and look out beyond the belt of vapor beneath us, into the sea."

(Edgar Allan Poe, A descent into the Maelstrom, 1841)

Arriving in the middle of the night with a two hours late ferry (to Moskenes) is probably the best way to see the southern part of Lofoten islands materialize from the surreal mist... the eternal dawn of scandinavian summer nights makes for a magic atmosphere.

unfortunately the photo hasn't got much depth. Don't you think? With a better camera the shot would have been better, I think.
