16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Snow covered mountains surround a secluded lake and hut in Lofoten, Norway

This photo shows the frightening scale of the Lofoten mountains in comparison to the hut located at the bottom right of the frame. I feel this image summarises the breathtaking Norwegian environment, remarkable mountain formations combined with a stunningly clear lake and a hidden hand made hut made from Norwegian wood. A team of 3 wild campers and i set up camp for the day and night right next to this lake, the look of the ice cold mountains suggests the temperature we had to endure and the hut against the mountain shows the natural landscapes spectacular dominance against us and the region.
