Photographer's Note

In the august of 1999 group of tourists from Latvia made the trip through Lofoten islands by bicycles. It were 5 fantastic days on islands.
Beleave me, only traveling by foot or by bicycle is the best way to explore and savour the country ... and climate :)
The weather was changing several times per hour: 10 minutes showers, 10 minutes sunny, but with wind, 10 minutes cloudy and again showers or sometimes raining. Interesting, that due to strong wind wet after rain clouth become dry in 10-15 minutes. In some places there was so strong wind that it was not possible to move forward by bicycle even on highest (easiest) gear. The average temperature in august was between +12..+18 C, and fall to +10 C during short nights (sun got down for less than hour, it is bihind polar circle :).
