The view shown in this photograph is somewhere in the mountains of Lofoten in Norway. As can be seen, it was extremely foggy. Quite challenging, but a great time to try something different and shoot more minimal and intimate with this misty mountain landscape as a result.

The two mountain peaks showed a glimpse of themselves when the fog cleared a bit. The sun managed to shed some light on them and warm them a bit. The setting with the peaks against the background of fog and clouds creates a unique minimalist and zen mood. The black and white presentation compliments that. Less is more! “A Glimpse” seemed like a suitable title for this misty mountain landscape in black & white.

Lofoten is a beautiful archipelago in the province of Nordland in Norway. Lofoten lies within the Arctic Circle and has breathtaking scenery. Its coastal mountains, sheltered bays, beaches, and untouched nature offer plenty of opportunities for hiking and photography. So, make sure to go there if you get the chance!
