Photographing Norway: Arctic Sunsets in the Lofoten Islands
Icy sunset on Haukland Beach
The phrase “sunset on the beach” usually conjures up images of tropical destinations and cocktails decorated with with paper umbrellas. The beaches in Norway’s Lofoten Islands might not fit the stereotype, but the sunset scenery is no less stunning.

One of my favorite stops during my Arctic Photography Workshop was Haukland Beach, also known as Hauklandstranda.

The colorful sunset I witnessed (and photographed) had colors so unreal, some of the images I took looked overly photoshopped despite being #nofilter.

Haukland Beach is considered one of the best beaches in the Lofoten Islands. Don’t let winter weather keep you from checking it out for yourself.
