[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi again people - long time no see!
I`m back again on trek nature. I`ve been away for a while, to try to find some new pictures. Long story short - In the end I returned to landscape photos, as that is what I like best.
This particular photo was taken early in the morning this october. It has been an unusually mild october for this part of the world, no snow yet, and its already november. These last weeks have been dominated by grey, wet and mild days - which also happens to create some beautiful sunrises as this one. As you can see there is not much snow, even on the mountaintops. We all hope the white stuff comes soon, as the period of 24-hour darkness is approaching - and the snow makes everything a little brighter.

hello Torbjorn,
Nice to see pictures from you again! Very special light and majestic view on this quite high mountain. Very tourmented sky. May be the picture is a little too much centred, that's just my opinion. And probably you would put the accent on the majesty of the central mountain.
Thanks and hope to see you more again
