Getting Wet at Uttakleiv Beach

An image from my Norway Fine Art Gallery

Shot during my trip to Lofoten, Norway, the sun was just rising over Uttakleiv Beach. I felt the icy spray of wave after wave coming in from the Arctic Sea and splashing across a large set of stones. I was watching for the perfect wave to create this temporary waterfall effect, but the wait was a little unnerving! 

Uttakleiv is one of Lofoten, Norway’s most scenic beaches.

An unexpectedly large wave could easily drench me and my equipment or, worse, it could knock me right off my feet, sending me and my gear into the nearby rocks. Fortunately, the Goldilocks of waves—just right!—eventually came along, and I was able to capture “Waiting at Uttakleiv Beach” to share with you.
