‎Norway‬ and its sense of scale

If there was one concept that crept into my mind the instant I landed in Norway, it was the importance of conveying a sense of scale. In most of our cases, Colby, Joe, and I were totally surrounded by gigantic mountains with beautiful peaks but in order to truly provide an idea of their grandeur, it would be important to find […]

The changing tides of Norway

Ahhhh, Haukland Beach in Norway. ColbyJoe, and I shot sunrise and sunset here… a lot. At first, that may sound tedious or monotonous, and in a way, you’d be right. But the more I thought about it, the more I came to appreciate this rocky shore because while the physical environment around us was static, the weather was anything […]

I think it’s as good of a time as any to shift from the frigid temps of the arctic circle to the tropical climate of Hawaii.

As Colby describes it, it was “stormy with intermittent sunshine,” but that didn’t keep us from zipping around to different parts of the Lofoten Islands. It’s so cool to see how intricately and thoughtfully the Norwegian people have linked each of these islands. It really […]

Day 1 in Reine, Norway

Yesterday was my first full day in Norway. After landing in Oslo, the day prior, Colby, Joe and I drove three hours north to the storybook town of Reine, nestled within the Lofoten Islands. Because it was very dark when we first arrived, being able to see this place as the sun rose was very special. Fortunately, the weather was […]
