The Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway are a magical location for any photographer. The jaw-dropping fjords, snow capped mountains, and quaint villages create a fairy tale like atmosphere. Because of the far north location, this incredible backdrop is draped in a soft, arctic glow for 4-5 hours during the winter, which grants photographers ideal conditions for shooting.
