Sunday 22 September2019
It had snowed a little during the night but nothing major and I went for a walk a little way up the mountain. As I mentioned yesterday, this was after all, a National Park.
The beauty of this country never ceases to inspire me and I’ve just run out of words to describe it. It seems that around every corner there is another piece of landscape that seems to be competing with the one I saw previously. This mountain forest was no exception and the weather was behaving itself for a change so I took the opportunity to make some intimate landscape images.
I’ve decided that I’ll spend a few days back on Lofoten and then head south so I made my way off the island and joined the E10 south and hoped to capture some good images on the way. I would stop when and where the opportunity arose.
I eventually found myself in a small town called Bjerkvik, a placed I’d visited on my way up to Tromsø. On that occasion I had camped on the marina but the facilities were extremely basic and they charged 150NOK for the priviledge. This time I decided to wild camp and found a rest area a couple of kilometres outside of town with a tremendous view overlooking the fjord and, to top it all, this evening’s sunset was very pleasant, as you can see.
