[Lofoten Rock, 3 kb]In their annual 'Awards for Excellence' the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild have voted Lofoten Rock as winner in the Guidebook of the Year category.

Judges Roger Smith and Guy Proctor described the book thus:

"Infectiously enthusiastic and a smorgasbord of inspiration and information combined in the wonderful images and topos. Shaggy and inclusive rather than clinical and definitive, with a frankness that's totally winning, and in its invitation for readers' contributions totally modern and in the 'wiki spirit' too. Exciting and brilliant."

Thorbjørn wasn't keen on the 'granite' backdrop - he thought it was someone's kitchen work surface. When I explained it was from a boulder at the base of the Priest he soon warmed to it!
