Winter In Lofoten, Norway.


by Mikołaj Gospodarek
Hi. I would love to share with you my pictures from one of the most wonderful place in Europe I have ever seen.
I spent one week in Lofoten, Norway.
I had sleepless nights because of auroras. I took pictures in the rain, in the snow, in the wind. I’ve been photographing landscapes for 10 years now, however Lofoten beat all the records. Mountains, beaches and sea – it’s a wonderful connection.
Just have a look at my pictures that I took during one week I spent in Lofotem. It’s really worth getting frozen, getting wet and notsleeping.

Foggy Sunrise at Snowdonia.

After a 5 am start on Saturday morning, I was hoping for sunrise, but the forecast was for fog.
I decided to try something different, using the fog to create atmosphere and tranquility from this scenic spot.
We made a short trip through a small wooded area, then to our delight the landscape opened up and we were stunned by this landscape before us.
At 7 am it was truly magnificent.

Winter at the Flatiron Building.

FlatironJonas1In the midst of a Winter Storm, photographer Michele Palazzo braved the blustery weather in hopes that he’d capture a one-of-a-kind shot.
Fortunately, he came across New York City’s Flatiron Building and that’s when something magical happened.
As tufts of snow swirled in the wind, Palazzo aimed his Ricoh GR camera and photographed the building, surrounding streets, and meteorological conditions.
After enhancing the image in VSCO Cam, the artist noticed that the snow swirls created patterns resembling swift brush strokes.
As a whole, the photograph incredibly echoes an impressionist painting.
If you look closely, you’ll notice that the Flatiron’s windows feature an origami installation by artist Chelsea Hrynick Browne.
Her hand-cut paper creations perfectly add to the otherworldly, Winter Storm moment.

Sunset paints the Sheffield Sky.

A colourful sunset follows a drab day on the rural outskirts of Sheffield.

The window of my room here looks south-west, over the rooftops of a Sheffield suburb draped over the foothills of the Pennines, and through it I watch the endless traffic of the sky all day; the fleets of clouds steaming past on their journey from coast to coast, the planes etching contrails that wobble tipsily in the winds.
Recently, the sky has seemed muted, in the way it often does when the light is at its leanest and the weather settles for grey neutrality.
But a marvel of midwinter is how even the most austere, threadbare days can give rise to the most lavish of sunsets.
At this time of year, the sun sets directly before the window, often inducing me to leave my desk and walk a few streets to where, in that typically Sheffield way, the city abruptly terminates, and clean-scrubbed streets of bungalows give way instantly to expanses of high-raised farmland.

Misty Morning – St. Marys Pass.

An early morning fog rolls through the trees in St Marys Pass State Reserve, Tasmania.
This week’s reader photo was taken by Jason L. Stephens in St Marys Pass State Reserve, Tasmania.
“A stunning foggy morning during winter.
Tasmania sure does get cold, yet is so amazingly beautiful.
It sure made up for the 400km round-trip for a clouded out sunrise on the East Coast!”
