Scandinavian Summer: Re-Imagined

Sometimes I have just the idea or the plan to do one single thing and then occasionally this one little, supposedly quick thing, leads to something else, takes hours to finish and it end like this.

I was just preparing a few images for an upcoming small exhibition, when I remembered that I still should update some older posts here on the blog. One of those post actually included one of the images which was supposed to be made ready for the exhibition. So, I dive into the archive, locate the image and then there was this “hmm… let’s see what if…” moment… You get the idea.

I just love it when this happens.

A Short Trip to Kukkolankoski

Kukkolankoski, 22 o’clock. The alarm shrieks me out of my dreams and I realize that I napped at least a few hours in the front seat of my old and trusted Toyota.

In two days we’re heading out to the Lofoten islands and I used the day to get some missing items for that trip. As I’m already in Sweden I revisited this location, called Kukkolankoski. I have been here once before in bad weather on the road to Norway last year and decided to return today as I was already quite close.

I arrived a few hours ago and explored the location still hoping for the light to improve. I left home in beautiful sunlight, but the more to the north I came the worse the conditions got. It’s not an easy place to shoot, or better to compose. The main attraction, an old pier which was built for fishing purposes, is so low, that framing it in a dramatic way seems to be impossible. After some experimenting prior to my nap I think I found a decent angle though.
