Colours of Lofoten! - Henningsvær, Lofoten

Do you know why people in the arctic region paint their buildings in bright colours? Many believe that it is to add colour to their towns/villages as most of the year the landscape is completely white these are the only colours they get to see outside. Not just that, but the buildings are easier to spot in a blizzard making it easier to find your way home. Henningsvær is a beautiful little fishing village located in the Lofoten Archipelago. This is a drone shot of the picturesque village just after a snow storm passed through. Minutes before this shot, it was completely overcast with heavy snowfall.
