| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Lofoten - 2 FM guys with Leica M9 and Sony Nex |
In February I spent one week on the Lofoten together with my friend Philippe (Philber). The Lofoten islands are located in northern Norway and are in my opinion one of the most attractive places for landscape photography in Europe.
This was our second trip to the Lofoten in wintertime (not counting my failed trip in 2011 where I broke my leg just before entering the ferry to the Lofoten).
In addition to classical landscape photography we had planned to also shoot some aurora borealis. But since we were shooting all day starting 1-2 hours before sunrise and finishing 1-2 hours after sunset we just didn't have the energy for additional night shots.
There were many other photographers at the same time on the Lofoten, mostly for aurora shooting. But they were often driving around the whole night and sleeping during the day. You probably have to decide whether to shoot aurora or classical landscapes, both on the same trip is difficult.
I was using my Leica equipment (2 M9 with 18mm, 21mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm and 90mm lenses and a 1.8 ND filter), Philippe was using his Nex cameras with his Leica and Zeiss lenses.
The M9 worked perfectly on this trip and I'm quite satisfied with the result. Nevertheless is was probably my last trip with the Leica equipment, but that's another story.
I will post my images in batches of 10-15 images to give Philippe the chance to post his images of the same places in between, starting with the western end of the Lofoten: Å i Lofoten, Sørvågen and Moskenes.
