Anitas in Reine Norway

Reine, Norway

You can nearly smell the briny waters of the Norwegian Sea’s Vestfjord—literally “the West fjord”—in this brisk scene. I shot it in the remote fishing village of Reine in Norway’s Nordland region.

And just behind me? Anita’s Seafood (, a  restaurant and fish market serving both fresh-caught fish and dried cod. Arctic cod spawn in these waters during winter, but, by summer, they’ve moved along. So, villagers have taken to preserving their cod. At Anita’s, they re-hydrate dried cod over a seven-day period and then serve.
