Slowly Catching Up……..


Storm Clouds Reine

Reine, Lofoten Islands, Northern Norway

It is nearly two months since we returned from our cruise to Northern Norway.  The weather was un-believably fabulous….so lots of pics of great scenery.  Two months seems a long time, but it is taking a time to sort all the images, I was trigger happy.  Very slowly I am getting there.  Trouble is it does take much long when you pause to recall a particular day or special location.  Many great memories.

As we left our last port of call the weather changed and storm clouds gathered.  But our Captain did make a slight detour to let us have a glimpse of Reine (population 350) that lies beneath the Reinebringen range of mountains.

Out of reach on this day and with the change in the weather perhaps just as well….. BUT there is a another name entered in to a go to list of locations.

  1. Looks so other worldly with the tall mountain peaks, clouds and the town clinging to the edge of the land. Nothing like it in Australia 🙂 May make it in 2022!!


    • Above the Arctic Circle and Northern Norway with the Lofoten Islands was really something special. Most of the images of Reine that you see are in better conditions than my image, some great drone footage….. but what ever the weather it is a location distinctly different. We plan to get back to the Lofoten Islands, fly and drive. The cruise was great, it allowed us to get our bearings and see so much in a relatively short space of time…. we can now be more selective. Hope you make it 🙂
