now.. i had for me these three desires..
to be in peace.. to find a sense.. and to be turned on...
in eternity..
and to love, to be in love... for me..
was able to catch these three aspects at the same time!!..
so.. as the vestals, in the ancient Rome..
for a long time.. I supervised to this wonder..
(the fire of our love)..
forgetting what generally it’s more important..
and if for a while..
all was perfect.. all became intensity..
after... i shouldnt say.. more..

fear.. the worst thing to teach.. and to learn..

where the light shines more clearly,
the darkness, in turn, is denser..

Seventeen Evergreen

Lofoten again.. cause my lens is broken from 45 days...
nikon italy maybe could make a miracle..
to make me shot photos again! ;)

Hi Marco,
Excellent light and contrast, great POV silver water created by the light. Happy to read that your Nikon budy is fixed!
Great posting my friend.

ciao Marco, alla luce segue sempre il buio ma dopo il buio arriva di nuovo la luce. L' impermanenza delle cose...almeno spero sia così.. Paesaggio da brivido, controluce su diversi piani di grande impatto emotivo.
mi piace molto!
Ciao, cinzia

Bonjourno Marco!

Lovely mood with the low clouds above the mountains. Too bad about the electric cables. Fortunately with this wider angle, they are not too distracting. Otherwise, I would have zoomed in to get rid of the pitch black bottom part, and just cloned the electric post at the left ( without touching the cables ).

I love those contrasts !


Hi Marco,
wonderful work.Bravo.
Nicet light and contrast my friend.

Hi Marco,
Once again, it is a majestic landscape!
Excellent rendering of the backlit and the depth of field more enhanced by the low fog.
You were also on the rock like the silhouette we can see in the middle of image? There you could have thrown your three desires in the sea for the luck! :)
Between darkness and light, it is the heart of the world which beats at the rhythm of all the human emotions. And it sounds strongly or gently according to their tempo!
Bravo and thanks for this beauty!

Hello Marco!
Fantastic atmosphere and great image!
Very beautiful place, perfect time, great colours, light, perspective!
Best regards!

I like the superb sharpness, graphism & silhouettes, good contrasted lighting, & subtle pastel colours. Bellisimo!

Such a great mood you have captured again here in the mysterious Lofoten Marco.

Sorry to hear your lens has been broken, I hope they can perform a miracle and you soon can start shooting again - feels like a handicap without a camera.


Ciao Marco,

Hi Marco,

it is nice that the sun and lighted mountains can be seen dimly in the distance, and fore shore is almost in silhouette.

the dawn and the sunset are in refrain from ancient times to eternity, those are beyond our whole imaginations.

thank you,

wow that is a marvelous picture, the night lighting, and the wonderful colors and area, it is unique.

A very rewarding photo to look at Marco.
You captured an essence of this place in a single shot.
Magnificent view, well managed exposure.
Beautiful work.

Lovely light Marco and well composed. I am not sure but I think removing (or lightening) some of the foreground just may have improved the look?

hi Marco

One of my favorite subject of photography is to use a good choice of light+shadow to make the image more attractive. The mood of your capture has these elements of visual impression.
