Mystic Blue Hour, Lofoten, Norway

Mystic Blue Hour, Lofoten, Norway
Photo of the Week 

Photo Information
One of the most photographed locations in Lofoten is the tiny fishing village of Hamnøy, Moskenes. In the blue hour, the chilled-lavender landscape contrasts with the warm amber rectangles of light emanating from the windows of the rorbuer. Taken with a Pentax K1 with a vintage Pentax M 20mm lens. This is one of several jaw-dropping locations we will be visiting on a future photo tour of Lofoten in 2019

Thanks, the shooting conditions were pretty though with strong wind and snow. I had intended to do a timelapse but the filter on the lens was getting too wet from the snow. Instead I managed to keep the snow off long enough to get this shot. It was also about -10c (not the coldest I have experienced in Norway which -35c in the central mountains once)

I’m honoured that this photo was selected as photo of the week. I’ve been a member for a number of years but shamefully only just started contributing.

Absolutely stunning. Great contrast between the cold blue of the landscape and the warm lighting of the buildings.

Agree with previous comments, a beauty of a landscape photograph.
