Arctic Through My Eyes.


by Vicki Mar

At 68 degree north just above the Arctic Circle lies the archipelago of Lofoten, Norway. The Arctic Ocean and the jet streams bring relatively temperate winter climate for such a northerly location, making Lofoten a great aurora borealis hunting spot.

But you don't navigate via Oslo to Bodo and weather the 3-hour ferry ride for just the northern lights alone. Toblerone-shaped jagged peaks make up the skyline, while the fishing villages tucked in the foothills give it its charm. Rorbuers (fisherman's huts) are all painted with village-specific shades of red, with fishing boats bobbing in front and snow-capped peaks emerging in the back.

Truly a photographer's paradise.
