Arctic Circle Sailing 2011 - Norway

Just back from a fantastic sailing trip up in the Arctic Circle in northern Norway. Here are a few of the photos from the trip sailing on 'Velvet Lady' (a 55' Oyster) from Bodø around the Lofoten Island area.

For video click above

At this time of year there is 24 hour sunshine, so providing the weather is right it's great for both sailing and photography.

These cod heads appeared to be hung up to dry in every little harbour we entered, sometimes on a truly commercial scale.

Peace and quiet!

Above - a slightly more traditional build in the spirit of this photo blog.

Colleen having a 'cold moment' in the arctic (which is allowed I think if you have come straight from Texas).

To me these big skies just lend themselves to b&w (above Bodø and below a Henningsvaer landscape).

Joyce and myself fly the flag.

For a short video of the trip by all means have a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxBqAMZI1zY to enjoy some more Arctic Circle sailing.
