WEDNESDAY WANDERLUST: THE LOFOTEN ISLANDS
By Paul Strubell of Dirt Orcas – 3/8/17
For this weeks edition of Wednesday Wanderlust we escape to the coastal islands of Norway. Blanketed in snowfall and dim light at this time of year, Nick Kontostavlakis has captured the scene beautifully.
Take a load off an enjoy.
“Μy last trip to Norway during February, 2017.
The Lofoten Archipelago is spread on the northwest side of Norway, very close to the borders of the Arctic Circle. It is a cluster of small fishing villages and is often called “the Foot of the lynx” because of its shape.
The islands are full of legends, maybe because of their natural beauty and their mysterious landscapes, or maybe because there the Sun either never rises or never sets. The only thing you can hear is the thousand voices of birds, the wind and the sound of the sea. That combination of the landscape which comes into view every morning and the sounds of nature is a priceless experience that fills you with energy and inspiration for the whole day, no matter what you have to face.”
