Photographer's Note

Lofoten | Vestvågøy | Stamsund

The weather is still great, if you look at WS1 you can see the temperature on the Lofoten at that moment... At least 4 °C more than at home in Tholen, the Netherlands. 2 °C more than in south of France, Anjou, where I grew up and where my family lives. Even Tromsø, all in the north of Norway, very much northern than the Arctic Circle got lovely warm weather in the first week of June 2017.

Stamsund: This charming fishing village is located on the south side of the island of Vestvågøy in the Lofoten archipelago, along the Vestfjord. With a population of 1,000, Stamsund is an important fishing port and the largest base for Lofoten trawl fishing. Gradually, more and more tourists discover Lofoten, with its marvelous scenery, enhanced by the midnight sun in the summer and the northern lights in the winter. Lofoten’s legendary seasonal fishery takes place from January to April, with bustling activity on land and sea.
