[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While visiting some friends at their cabin in the Signaldalen Valley in Troms, Norway, we went down to the river one morning. The river was very still and gave us perfect reflections of the beautiful mountains in the background. This mountain is somewhat a landmark in the area, as it can be seen from far away, and because it has its special shape. It is possible to scale it without use of ropes and climbing equipment, but it is quite dangerous..!


Hope you like it!

Hello Torbjorn,
Fantastic clear colours and a wonderful reflection in the water. The contrasts are gorgeous. Excellent diagonal composition, which take the eyes from the stones in the water to the tops of the mountains. Very, very beautiful!

Hi Torbjorn

Nice to see you back here old friend :) I hope you're doing well.
This is a magical shot! Truly gorgeous condition here that you made the most of...the very calm river gave you an excellent setting and, with carefully exposure parameters, managed this superb landscape.
The composition is lovely - with both interesting FG elements and gorgeous colors and textures in the BG - the tones are all spot-on exposed and the elements are all where they should be in the frame.
A true gem in every way! A favorite!


That's amazing!!
What a colours and sharpness. And what an excellent weather!!

Hello Trobjorn,
Honestly I don't use to look much pictures of landscapes due to my main interest, by now, is to learn from other people how to take maro-pictures, but this case deserves the exception: WHAT A NICE PICTURE!. Excellent colors and sharpness, but the most important thing are the peaceful feelings that this picture transmits. Congratulations and TFS.

Esta foto es impresionante!!!! El reflejo en el lago es una belleza.

Hi Torbjorn. Stunning landscape in such tranquility. The stillness of the water with flawless reflection captured really well in the frame. Nice work in perfectly metered composition. Regards. Jusni

This is one of the best reflection photos I've seen. I like the foreground rocks and the good depth of field. The only thing that looks a bit unnatural is the hue of the reflected sky in the water. It is so different than the actual sky. It isn't just darker but a different hue altogether. Maybe it is just my eyes!

Hi Torbjorn ,
Nice scenery with great compo.
Amazing colours.

Hi Torbjorn!

Fantastic view. I almost fell the clean,fresh and cold air. Water looks like a mirror, great colours, nice composition with the rocks on first stage. Thanks a lot for sharing!

Hello Torbjorn,
Very happy to see a posting from you again. And what a wonderful sight you show here! This is really a breath-taking view , the water must have been so still to make these perfect reflections, even clearer than reality.
Best regards

Hi Torbjorn,
A beautiful capture half way between sun and shadows.
Love all the different moments and emotion displayed here.
The picture transmits so much peace and calm.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Gorgous shot! Perfect reflection, with a very nice blue in the reflection. Say... how high was that mountain? Either way, its very good. Well done! Cheers Josh Lewis.
