Nusfjord in Flakstad

When travelling west in Lofoten, after crossing the Nappstraumen in a short underwater tunnel, you arrive at the Flakstad island. After some kilometers, in the inner part of Flakstadpollen, you may take off the E-10 and go south some kilometres to Nusfjord. It is a qute little fishing village next to Vestfjorden. In the European Architectural Heritage Year of 1975, Nusfjord was declared worthy of conservation. Situated in Flakstad in Lofoten, it is the best preserved fishing village in Norway. This picture was taken August 6th in 2006, and as you can see, unfortunately it was cloudy and raining. If you would like to stay overnight, visit this link.

Photo details: EOS 30D with my EF-S 17-85 mm at f/5.6 with a focal length of 33 mm. With ISO at 400, the shutter time was 1/20 seconds. Yes, it was handheld without tripod, but with IS on.

This picture is part of my Lofoten set at flickr.
