Photographer's Note

Originally built as accommodation for visiting fishermen during the fisheries of Lofoten, fishermen's cabins, or "rorbuer" as they are called in Norwegian, are today immensely popular amongst both Norwegian and foreign visitors.

Despite the humble name, these cabins are among the most charming cottages in all of Norway. Yes, there are bare-bones fishermen's cabins available, but the majority of them are modern structures with chic furnishings and million-kroner views.

Seen here are the red rorbuer by the Olden Lake. There was still a layer of fog, even though it was 10am. I love this part of Norway a lot.
