Yesterday was my first full day in Norway. After landing in Oslo, the day prior, Colby, Joe and I drove three hours north to the storybook town of Reine, nestled within the Lofoten Islands. Because it was very dark when we first arrived, being able to see this place as the sun rose was very special. Fortunately, the weather was exceptionally agreeable throughout the day and we certainly made the most of it. Colby was good enough to secure a number of locations for us to scout, including a lake that was so calm and still, you’d have a hard time determining which side was above water and which was being reflected. I’ll share images from that location down the road.

For now, here is a photo of some cabins in Reine taken during sunrise. The coolest part is that the three of us are actually staying in one of those cabins while we’re here! So, the walk from our front door to the bridge offering this view takes about 3 minutes. I’m all far working to get the shot but I’ve gotta say, being able to literally stumble out of your front door to this view ain’t too shabby either!
