Due to unforeseen circumstances, I’ve had to cancel my personal photographic trip to Lofoten this week. But the good news is that I will be going back in December for just over a week to do my own photography. I feel that some places are an ongoing project and Lofoten has certainly captured my imagination in that respect.
Looking at The Photographer’s Ephemeris for mid December, I see that twilight begins a little before 9am (how civilised), and ends around 11am, giving me two hours to shoot in the moody light I like each morning and each night. Sunrise starts and 11am and Sunset is at 12:30pm, meaning the sun is above the horizon for an hour and a half. Twilight begins from 12:30 and ends around 3pm.
I don’t know about you – but for me – this is a perfect photography schedule. Not up too early (I’m not an early riser by habit), and all the great light happens in a condensed period of time.
I can’t wait.
