Hennigsvær - klassisches Stockfischgestell im Abendlicht (3533)

Nowadays you rarely see them, the triangular shaped stockfish racks. Mostly they are designed in box form, with crossbars on top to hold the fish. When I was in Lofoten for two days after graduating from high school with my father on the return trip from the North Cape, the shores were still full of the racks in the classical form. However, they had already been cleared away in June and it was only in Hennigsvær that we had found any racks with stockfish.

This classic rack is now at the foot of the last bridge to Hennigsvær. In the evening of my stay I had walked over the bridge and enjoyed the view of the harbor village. Just in time for sunset I was at the foot of the rack and set it in scene in a largely symmetrical way. My Tilt-Shift lens helped me here to tilt the focal plane into the room.
