It was one of those ugly days when it's neither winter nor spring, the snow was thawing, rain started to pour and just getting out of the bed seemed like a hard thing to do. But I had to drive from the wonderful village of Å to the not-so-wonderful Ballstad, so I decided to drop by Nusfjord on my way there. At first it seemed overrated. I strolled around depressed by the weather, got bored, and even played a harmless prank on a guy who was changing shoes leaning against my rental car. I remotely turned on the noisy parking heater which scared the hell out of him.
I did two circles around the village without even taking my camera out and headed for the car, disappointed. But then I came across this location and suddenly it all clicked into place. I knew I had to get as high as I could to separate the rorbu houses from the cliff in the back, and I also had to make it a long exposure so that the water would look as featureless as the sky to make the rorbus and the cliff stand out as main subjects. So here it is.
I didn't like the image at first, but it grew on me and now I think it's one of the better ones from this trip. (2016-03-01 Nusfjord, Lofoten Islands, Norway)
