|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|It has been a while since I posted my last photo from my photography trip to the Lofoten. A trip that showed me the beauty of these islands and the many photo opportunities they bring.|
This photo of Hov mountain was taken on an early morning while on one of my last scouting trips across the islands. The day before I experienced rain and snow but this day brought some relief in the weather. Although the cloud cover was still thick and the forecast wasn't bringing any relief.
I stopped at a spot I visited previously to see if I could make some photo with incoming waves on a pristine white beach. The tide was low and there weren't that many waves to make anything worthwhile to keep. So I decided to move a little further and find a spot to capture Hov mountain positioned in between Vestvågøy and Austvågøy. There were just enough gaps in the could cover to bring in some light, but I would've liked a few strong shafts of sunlight on the mountain tops. Hey, you cannot control the light and sometimes you have to move on instead of waiting for the light.
A few technical details: tripod, 0.6 grad ND filter, cable release, hotshoe spirit level

beautiful capture Niek, subtle and simple! The water edge in the horizon, placed in approximately 1/3 of the frame brings balance in this composition. Lovely colors and depth ...bravo! A classical execution!

Nice to see a picture from you again! Lovely shades of blue for this classical and simple landscape picture. Love the cloudy sky with patches of blue. Very peaceful area which I would like to visit too.
Beautiful perspective, nice light and water reflections, amazing scenery.
