A trip to Lofoten islands – Heningsvær

Henningsvær is a little fishing village about half an hours car drive from Svolvær. A lot of tourists visit this little village to watch the typical fishing village architecture.

A trip to Lofoten islands – Svolvær

As a part of our summer holiday we spent a few days in the Lofoten islands. We rented a boat house in Svolvær (Svinøya). Svolvær is a beautiful town situated just below the famous rock formation “Svolværgeita” (the Svolvær goat). Svolvær is a popular place to visit for tourists from all over the world and a lot of them arrive with a Norwegian cruise ship called “Hurtigruta”. “Hurtigruta travels the Norwegian coastline from Bergen and all the way up to Tromsø.

We visited a few more places too, which I will write about in later posts. Meanwhile please enjoy the photos from Svolvær.

By the sea (Stavern, southern Norway)

The last week I spent in Stavern, together with my family. This is a beautiful little town by the Oslofjord. In the summer the little town are packed with tourists, some of them arrives by sailboat from Denmark, Germany and Holland. Mostly the town are packed with Norwegians who has their summer houses in the area.

I decided to try to photograph my surroundings on this trip. I also decided I should try some long exposure shots.

I hope you enjoy my experiments.

Something different

I love macro photography but today I found out I had to post something different on the blog. Can´t keep you bored with my macro mania every week. Well, that doesn´t actually mean I didn’t´t take any close ups today, because I couldn’t let any chance of frosty leaves and little droplets pass by when walking the shore of the Oslo fjord 😉

When taking a walk at the Vollen beach there are boats and som maritime details which can be inspiring too. And today was a very foggy day so the colors popped as I passed by different maritime objects. I like colors almost as much as I like macro photography so todays theme are colors.

Have a nice and colorful week!
