19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Frozen Sunrise at Vareid, Flakstadøya

I came across this spot very early one morning at Vareid in the Lofoten Islands, Norway. The morning was -10ºC and quiet with the exception of a few seagulls reacting to the warm sunrise. The morning was a nice opportunity as it was a brief break in heavy winter storms during a several week excursion through Lofoten in 2019
