This is Arnt Roald.
He is litterally raised in bad weather, and has been living in it since. He is as though as the weather out here. Winterstorms and salt sea dont mind him, but has made him weary after all these years.
Surrounded by the sea of Lofoten, and what once was a inexhaustible ocean of fish, becoming a fisherman was his only choice.
An uncountable amount of fish has passed through his four walls and have fed generations. He has seen small fishing boats become bigger and bigger, and their nets wider and wider.
Some might know him as stubborn, but he only knows himself as determined. Thats also the reason he is still standing. He eyes are shut, but theres plenty of soul inside.
Care for him.
Fikk mulighet til å oppleve denne perlen takker være søstra mi og hennes bekjentskap på Røst. More to come :)
I never go out to shoot just birds, but I always found Cormorants beautiful and mysterious. So once I got the chance to creep up on a couple in Røst, I simply had to try to take some shots😊
The Norwegian Sea Eagle, the biggest eagle in Norway.
Shot this with my grandfathers 70-200mm. Way to short to shoot birds, but one cannot just stand around and not shooing these beauties. Taken in Røst, Lofoten
Did you know that they pair for life, and have the same nest for years.
Wanna know what happened to Toralfs house.?
Back in 2015 the house was still whole,and standing. Sometime after, more and more parts from the corner of the house was disappearing. Nobody knee why, but after a while one found out. Allegedly there was an artist/photographer who had been taking down boards to use them as framework for his pictures.
And shoot the Northern lights
You’ll have to look long and hard to find a more picturesque house. This house is located in Røst, Lofoten and is only acessible by boat. Maybe thats the reason it has been allowed to stay so untouched.
The story says that Toralf back in 1965 died trying to rescue one of his sheeps who got stuck near the shore. (Probably during bad weather, as Røst is located far out in the sea). He slipped and fell so hard that he passed away. Maybe thats why the cutlery, vitamins and pills where still standing on the table back in 2012. Too risk soo much for a sheep is saying something how hard life back in the days could be and how important your animals were to you.
Just updated my video page, with some old videos. Feel free to see, share and enjoy :)
I am in a slow process to update my site and pages, but for now I just updated my Barnet i meg page.
