The view shown in this Nordic coastal landscape with snow is in Reine on the Lofoten Archipelago. As can be seen, it was a day with a lot of fog. Additionally, there was with barely any wind. As a result, the landscape was quite mystical. A longer exposure time smoothened the water of the Kirkefjorden (Kjerkfjorden) a bit, and it enhanced the reflection of the mountain. The combination of smooth water of the fjord and the fog creates a lovely minimalist and soothing look and feel.
The Lofoten Archipelago lies within the Arctic Circle on the Norwegian west coast. The coastal mountains there are stunning, especially in winter, like this Nordic coastal landscape with snow illustrates. The snow makes the coastal mountains of Lofoten stand out against the silvery water there. Besides that, Lofoten has beautiful secluded sandy beaches and a landscape that is still untouched in a most of the archipelago. Lofoten is worth a visit, so make to go there when you get the chance!
