[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Time for another photo from my photography vacation on the Lofoten. The landlady of the rorbuer I was staying told me that I needed to see the high peak topped with the most pristine icing. I drove by the mountain at day time and looked for a spot to capture it from. After dinner I returned to the spot waiting for the light to cast it last rays on the peak. It was a bit of a wait and the strong cold wind was making it a rather long wait. Eventually the light became good and even a little cloud started to form over the Austnesfjorden. It allowed me to balance the composition.

It was a bit of a struggle to keep the exposure correct as the clear white peak became a very bright spot compared with the shadowed landscape in front of me. I allowed for a slight over exposure so to not get a completely blackened landscape. The strong wind was also a struggle as the shutter speeds were getting slower and I was afraid that it would also move the camera during an exposure. Luckily I brought along a bungee cord and attached that to my bag and tripod.

Hi Niek, even with allowing for the brightness of the snow this is still a pretty spot and worth the wait. Looks very cold too. Fiona

Hello Niek,
The a lovely depiction of a cold atmophere in blue color on dominance. Red tone in light is interesting along with whiteness of horrizone which is visible either on high altitude shots or coloser to the poles. Excellent photograph, well done. Thanks for sharing.
