Fishing boats at harbour in Ballstad

From Leknes, you can take off the E-10 high way and go south some kilometres until you arrive in Ballstad. It's as far south you can come in Vestvågøy, and thus it's on the Vestfjorden side of Lofoten. The above picture is taken in the beginning of August 2006. It's raining, and a bit dark. Ballstad has approximately 740 inhabitants. It's been a fishing town for around 1000 years, and fishing is still important.

Photo details: EOS 30D with my EF-S 17-85 mm at f/5.6 with a focal length of 85 mm. With ISO at 125, the shutter time was 1/100 seconds. The picture has been slightly adjusted with Adobe Potoshop Elements.
