Norway, the North Cape

June, 2007

Norway! A new country for me, and the gateway to the high arctic Svalbard archipeligo aboard the National Geographic Endeavour. Departing from Bergen, we make our way north along this beautiful coastline. I hope you enjoy the images from this area, here the small fishing town of Lovund in northern Norway.
Stetind rises 1391 meters from sea level and was voted to be Norway's most beautiful mountain in 2005. It is deep within Tysfjorden

Flat-glass waters everywhere within deep fjords make for fantastic reflected images!

Late evening reflected light on the picturesque Norwegian fishing town of Reine in the Lofoton Island Group.

Cod fish cleaned and drying out in the small fishing town of Å in the Lofoton Island Group, Norway. This town has the shortest name of any town in the world!
