Er det Valderøya?
Min mormor kom derfra, men dessverre evigheter siden jeg var på de traktene nå.
Fantastisk natur rundt Ålesund:)

Dette bildet viser Løvsøya, Vigra m/flyplass er like bak, så det er ikke så langt fra Valderøya :)

Your landscape photos are always stunning, but this one is particularly so. The multitude of greens is just so beautifully captured, as is the sea and the mountain. Just wow. This is so pretty it almost seems surreal.

What can I say..., I'm a detail-junkie, and details are especially important for this picture, so I tried to max it out to bring the sensation of height and flight as much into it as possible. I don't think there is a lot of ghosting, but maybe a tad of aliasing here and there. Maybe I will tweak it even more, but that has to be done another time, because I already used a lot of time to clean this version up from the old one.

Thanks mate.

Liking the crisp details - overall color of the photo - and the depth and distance involved. Good time of day - not a shot youd want early or late. The deep blues help a lot. I want to say either more ground or more sky.....but both are so interestig I like the balance you took. Makes me wish you had a wider FOV so you could see more of the scene.

That's a magnificent photo - you've obviously gone to great effort to get such a perfect view. The colours on the fields are wonderfully vivid and contrast well with the rugged beauty of the island. Where is the location?

bkm Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2004
Thank you. It's at the coast in the north-west part of the south half part of Norway. There's a row of islands about the same size a little north of a small city called Aalesund. I happen to live on one of them where this image was shot.
