Henningsvær at night

Henningsvær at night, originally uploaded by KrWe.

Evening in Henningsvær is beautiful - especially when the weather is calm and the sun is leting its golden strays of light shine down in low angle on the moutains.

The weather isn't always this beautiful in Henningsvær, its location north of the polar circle and far out in the North Atlantic ocean, without shelter, makes the place exposed to hard weather.

The place is the center of the famous "Lofotfiske" (Lofot-fishing). It starts in mars and gathers a whole lot of fishermen and their boats with only one goal: To catch as much Atlantic cod as they are alowed to. Then the harbour on the picture is filled up with boats and people.
