“A free man can live on fish. Independence is better than meat.” ― Halldór Laxness, Independent People I once asked a National Geographic photographer if he had a favorite shooting location. “The place I’ve haven’t been to yet,” he said, is always his favorite. I feel the same way, except for a few places. Iceland is one of them. Sometimes it’s as satisfying to find a foreign … Continue reading Culture Outpost: That first taste of sky

Experience of a Lifetime: Sea Eagles in Lofoten Archipelago!

Experience of a Lifetime: Sea Eagles in Lofoten Archipelago!

Gunnar Skjeseth deftly maneuvers his 11-meter high performance RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) through the rough swells out of the harbor at Svolvær, Norway and slows at a series of rock outcroppings just offshore across the bay. He looks up towards the rocky ledges and whistles. Nothing. He whistles again, then throws a herring to the gulls. When the gulls start screaming, he said, the eagles … Continue reading Experience of a Lifetime: Sea Eagles in Lofoten Archipelago!
