First Light

A pure classic view of the famous island Hamnøy in the gorgeous Lofoten archipelago, Northern Norway.
I took this photo just as the first light struck the mountain peaks during the early morning hours. I've been here the last 4 years and it's a bit frightening to see how the numbers of visitors changes from year to year. 4 years ago I could stand on the bridge with this amazing view alone or together with a few others. During February this year I shared the bridge with at least 80 other people! It's hard to see how places become overcrowded by tourism.

I'm experiencing the same thing here in northern Canada.... What a wonderful shot, though, Mikkel.
