As with my last trip to Lofotens, our first photographic site was Haukland Beach. These are a mixture of wide angle (10-24) and Fish-eye (8mm) images - the more instense the colour, the longer the exposure with longest 30 secs. The upper beach was very icy so stayed clear of this after Jane's experience 3 years ago.

As there were still a couple of hours of daylight left yesterday, I took a walk out of Leknes to reacquaint myself with the wonderful colours that the Lofoten landscapes offer. Not really a sunset but the strip of yellow added another hue to the scene.

As soon as we left Oslo the cloud thinned and we had wonderful views of the Fjords and mountains below on the way to Bodo. It was cloudier from Bodo to Leknes but some great water colours as we approached the Lofoten Islands.
Phil kindly paid for a room for the night at the very close Park Inn at the airport so a few images to show the very interesting decor and the huge amount of snow that had built up on the covered access pathway. The snow ploughs were out in large numbers and our flight was only slightly delayed while the wings were stripped of the 3 - 4inches of snow by the very impressive deicing machines. Finally to show the difference a few minutes make as we flew above the snow clouds.
