The Calmest Blue by bkm The Calmest Blue by bkm
Long exposure shot, with minimal postwork (Basically only slight light/contrast and slight crop, usm) I've submitted a couple of times from this area before, but this is a little different. This is an old lighthouse area, and in the past the buildings you see in the picture were used for accommodation by the men that were stationed there.

Amazing. The bright spot of light in the center accents it well. Perfect time to shoot for the location.

Atmospheric shot...just the way I've come to expect from you!
Beautifully composed with layers of smooth water, stark coastline and a lovely gradient in the sky.
The reflection of the light on the water from the lamp that illuminates the house is just one small detail of this highly detailed photo, that I've fallen in love with.
This photo showcases you photographic talent and there is nothing here that could be improved. I'd give this a 10 out of 10!

A very beautiful shot you've taken here. Was this a base? Or just a guarded port? Either way you captured it perfectly, as usual. Great capturing of that twilight sky.

Keep it up :)

It was a civilian installation, built in 1873 and 3 men were running and doing maintenance on the lighthouse. The lighthouse was automated in 1975, and today there is no one living there, but one of the houses is available for tourists etc.

Thanks :)

Wow! It's beautiful, bkm.
Where (in Norway?) is the picture taken?
