Hi folks!
Heres another picture from my mountain series. I didnt plan to do a series of mountain pictures, but the weather and surroundings has been so perfect for mtn photos - so you can say, its nature`s own fault.. hehe.
This is an image of the Mauken mountain in Troms. The mountain itself is 1249 meters high and it has a secondary peak which is almost as high.

History tells us that in 1941 a german bomber, probably based at Bardufoss, crashed 150 feet below the top of this mountain. The weather had been terrible and the pilot didn`t see the mountainside until they were to close to react - Some locals later found a service gun from one of the pilots, and brought it home. The german troops found it - and sent them to prisoner camps in Europe. (Source: Wikipedia)

Hi Torbjorn,

No need to apologise for mountain shots like this, keep them coming! Beautiful photo, I like the simple composition and panoramic crop - and the bright colours and detail is superb. The clouds behind the mountain really add to the effect too.

And people don't believe shadows are actually blue - only need look at this shot for proof!

Nice work as always :-)

Hello Torbjorn,
Wonderful mountain capture,looks like a painting.POV,large DOF and framing are excellent.
TFS...:-)

Hi Torbjorn,
Great control over the exposure. The snow looks perfectly, and so does the sky and woods. I would have liked to see a LP version, because the scenery is really stunning.

Wow, what a stunning view! This is a wonderful snowcapped mountain. The blue sky is excellent and the polarizer worked very well. My guess is that you shot this picture in the later afternoon, am I correct? Very well done & TFS!

Regards,
Pieter

I really like the series on mountains. it is where my heart lies and when i'm at home, I pine for the mountains, so seeing your pictures is great. Another one very nicely done and well balanced.

This is a nice sharp image, Torbjorn. The exposure looks good to me as does the control of the polarizer. That is an odd double peak. Looks almost like a volcano from this angle.
