Viking Dreams
Sapna Reddy, MD

A beautiful rainbow frames this picturesque fishing village in Lofoten, Norway.  The fishermen use cod liver oil mixed with ochre to paint their cabins a bright red.

Dr Reddy is a Radiologist at the Walnut Creek Medical Center in CA and is pursuing  a dual career as a landscape/nature photographer. More of her work can be seen at, and in this and other issues of The Permanente Journal.
