One of my all time favourite photos is from Norway that I have taken few years ago. This is magical place and the time spent there will stay in my mind forever. When looking at this photo I still feel that cold in my fingers when I was waiting for one of the birds to appear in the right place in this shot.

 

"If you're looking to retreat from the world, you can't think of a more hauntingly beautiful place. These spectacular islands lie off the northern coast, near the stunning Trollfjord. Bird-watchers and anglers will think they've found paradise. The islands are surrounded by the richest fishing waters off the coast of Norway, and fishing has formed the focus of village life. Vestvagoy Island and the beautiful town of Stamsund are a good base for hiking and biking, and the town of Svolvaer on Austvagoy Island has an artists' colony (if time permits, visit the Lofoten Island Museum in nearby Kabelvag). In the village of A (yes, that's its entire name; pronounced awwww) the Fishing Village Museum re-creates the traditional life of the region. Orca, minke and sperm whales pass near the islands in summer. A popular option for visitors is renting a rorbu, a renovated fisherman's cabin that sleeps 4-6 people. Be aware that Lofoten is hardly undiscovered - in July and August, the islands are so crowded with tourists that you may not meet any Norwegians there."

 

Timelapse movies had become my new way of capturing my travels besides regular photography. Check out how beautiful Scandinavia can be :
