Last expedition to Lofoten was memoriable. To make a long story short, its not very common to get a permission to enter the country from Norwegian border police. Do not need to mention a mandatory quarantine for arrivers. On the other side, it was completely different Lofoten we used to – and we will hardly something experience it ever again – no tourists, few locals. For reward, there were beautiful autumn colours. Very similar to what we experienced in legendary 2017. Panorama compiled from total of 90 frames (3-level exposure bracketing of 26 frames in two rows, 12 antireflex frames).
