Lofoten Islands 2006: 

We were fortunate enough to experience 2 weeks of high pressure during the last week of July and first week of August in the Lofoten Islands of Norway. The grey (but dry) start to the trip gave way to blue skies for the rest of the trip until the morning we drove to the airport, when it rained :o)

Here is a selection of pictures from the trip. Other pictures of our trip can be found here.
