Lofoten Islands Snapshot

I have just returned from my very first visit to photograph the Lofoten Islands in Norway and all I can really say is what an incredible place.

The landscape is breathtaking with the snow capped peaks in such close proximity to you. The best way to describe the shapes of the peaks would be to give a 5 year old a crayon and ask them to draw some mountains!

It will take me time to work my way through the photographs taken during the trip as we visited over a dozen locations but below are some snapshots taken on my phone over the course of the week which I hope give flavour of the landscape.

Twillingate Huts

This is another series from our summer trip to Newfoundland, this time coming from fishing village of Twillingate on the northern coast.

These photographs are of the fisherman's huts that are scattered along the waters edge which you come across as you move from cove to cove.

The huts are all painted a beautiful burnt sienna colour and stuck at the end of what in most instances is a precarious wooden pier.

This is one area which I could happily return to and spend many hours photographing the huts, piers and surroundings.

Skerwink Trail

During the summer we journeyed across Newfoundland in Canada including a short stay on the Bonavista Peninsula.

Whilst there we walked the Skerwink Trail, regarded as one of the finest walks in Canada. At 4.5km long the trail should take just over an hour but when you're dashing to and from the cliff edge to photograph the stunning coastline you can expect to spend upwards of 3 hours there.

This is a small series of photographs taken from among the trees and bushes along the cliff path (but mainly off the path!) looking out at the Skerwink Rocks and the deserted coves, accessible only by boat.
