[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Valdresflya in Norway is one of my most favourite places. Here you find a very spectaculair landscape.
The highest point is 1.389 m. Not that high, you should think, but take in rememberance that the closer you go to the pole, the lower the mountains are and also the tree line is lower than in Middle Europe.
The flya is a small mountain plateau just east of the Jotunheimen National Park. Rough, unspoiled, poor soil with an alpine vegetation, and very often very beautiful skies.
On this summer evening I was accompanied by the silence and quietness of nature only.

oooh... this is nice. One has to love a super side angle lens! The lead lines and foreground grasses and rocks are very effective in this composition. The sharpness is wonderful. Is the vignette effect intentional?

Evelynn : )

Wonderful scenery and an excellent wide angle in terms of content, depth, compo, etc...
The only thing I'm a bit puzzled about are your darker corners. I don't think this could be intentional:-)
But otherwise very good photo through for example the colors.
Forgot to mention the latter.

Hello ruud,
an excellent graphical presentation of the nature.
Well textured and lovely solemn colours.
Great composition of rocks and mountains.
The colour od the sky is very exciting.

Hello Ruud,
Very happy to see that you post again! I just looked before to Horia's V-picture and I see that you show one too. I like the fine grey tones of this wild landscape and the open view to the sky. Very peaceful and fine picture.
Thanks a lot
