Lofoten Lights is a short film from William Copestake that features the sunrise from the summit of Hermannsdalstinden, the tallest peak on Moskenesøya Island at the end of the Lofoten archipelago in northern Norway. Copestake reached the summit after paddling from the nearest town of Reine and completing the climb in the night. As he said of the experience: “Nestled on a perch bathed in the golden glow of the midnight sun, we watched beyond the snow as a bank of clouds rolled over the northern peaks.” You can follow Copestake on Facebook here and on Instagram here.
