ASTAFJORDEN - LIFTING THE POLAR NIGHT
The Winter is enfolding in its full glory and the Polar Night is lifting its darkness very soon and the first sunbeams will be visible again. The top of the mountains still catch some sunlight which create beautiful atmosphere of light. Light is what is making life!
We will be exploring the light in Astafjorden. Astafjorden is a 30 km long fjord connecting Salangen in the east with Vågsfjorden in the west. The fjord is surrounded by majestic mountains spread over a variety for islands and peninsulas covered with beaches, rock formations and breathtaking view points. This coastal line is unique and part of the Norwegian Coastal Culture. The lakes and parts of the fjord will be frozen and give us unique natural elements to photograph.
During the polar night, it will not be completely dark so we will have a good window to shoot the Norwegian landscapes under gorgeous light conditions. The arctic light is something special and you do not want to miss this.. When the sky is clear and the we will definitely go out and chase the Northern Lights. This will be fun and I love to help you to capture this incredible beautiful phenomena.
The weather cannot be influenced, so we will make the best out of what is being presented during this Into the Polar Night workshop.
