SENJA - MIDSUMMER
Senja is Norway's second largest island, located far above the Arctic Circle. Join me in some of the most spectacular landscapes in Norway.
We will be situated just outside of SENJA for the duration of this MIDSUMMER photo tour / workshop.
Our location for 7 nights will at a beautiful location with amazing fjord view. We have stayed many times at this wonderful location as it gives us maximum flexibility in planning our shooting locations on Senja and surroundings. Spectacular locations are in reach to photograph stunning Mountains, Fjords, Norwegian Houses, Rivers, Lakes, Waterfalls, Beaches and the amazing Nordic Light.
As the SUN will not set during mid April until mid August (depending on the Latitude) we will spend most of our time shooting between 8pm and 3am as the light during this time is soft and spreads its glory. When the weather is gracious to us, we will climb up to Segla. Segla is the highest mountain of Senja. The hike up to Segla will take about 1.5 - 2 hours - and we will spend the night up there overlooking the Fjords and shoot the Sunset and Sunrise (The sun will not go under the Horizon, so there is no real Sunset nor Sunrise, but you will see the how the sun touches the horizon before it rises again). You do not want to miss this view (We will discuss this tour based on the vitality of the group).
The weather cannot be influenced, so we will make the best out of what is being presented during this workshop.
The quietness and unspoiled nature of SENJA and surroundings display amazing landscapes and will provide us great opportunity to capture stunning images.
Most locations can be reached easily and do not require much extensive walking.
The photo tour is suitable for all photography skill levels.
