We found the frozen lake of Solbjornvannet (sun bear lake) after trekking up into the mountains near Reine on the Lofoten Islands. The air was still and, with only myself and my friends in this huge area, it was so peaceful. It was an epic location I often found myself humming the Skyrim theme as I wandered around...which I guess made it a little less peaceful but at least I wasn't disturbing anyone....

Spectacular view, I like the ice and the small rock sticking through to help fill in the foreground. Super light and great cloud, all in all a smashing shot.
