Just breathtaking!

There is everything I like on photos - some places seen from very small distance and also a very distant horizon

i love the range of colors in this picture. Did you use a filter? Possibly a polarizer?

Anywho this shot is just stunning. The use of a border makes this picture look more professional and helps out. The fluffy clouds make it look almost dream making you imagine about the times when you used to fly in the sky when we were all little. Instead of being slammed into the reality of it all.

Anywho keep up the great work!

That's incredible. It doesnt look real, more like a painting or digital rendering. More like digital. The colors or so rich. You took an already amazing scene and made it better with such a creative angle. Very nice.

North-West coast mid-Norway, Sunnmøre, not so far from Ålesund. There's a string of islands just north-west of the city, this is shot from a location on one of these islands.

Thanks :thanks:

my oh my!!! now THISSSSSSSS is a capture! I love the composition - the way everything kinda folds together. Love the wispy clouds and the way the light and color is playing with them. Really pure blue that just oozes sex appeal (remember - landscape photographer speaking =P) Love that bright yellow - really sets off the photo. The land itself just begs for a photo to be taken - perfect scene - and perfectly taken.

I really do admire this photo.

I'll refrain from chating "I wanna go to Norway", but that is one hell of a good photo.

I think it's great how there is no sign of civilisation in most your photos, it's like it's just Nature untouched by man.

North-Vest coast mid-Norway, Sunnmøre, not so far from Ålesund. There's a string of islands just north-west of the city, this is shot on a location on one of them.

I shoot all my pictures in RAW format, that means that post pro is actually mandatory. Post pro for this image consists of dynamically equalizing the picture to enhance light on ground part of the image without losing details in the sky (Basically just light and contrast adjustments separately done for sky and ground). As you may know, digital cameras, especially, have a problem with capturing these types of pictures without either overexpose the sky, or underexpose the ground.

Thank you :)
