[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One minute short of 10 hours later, the sky turned into this wonderful color. I was amazed to see this much color in the sky while there was still so much light present. The sun wouldn't set for an hour but the spectacle already started. If you look close enough, you can still see the spot of my previous photo.

I can't spend much time on TN today, I am going to explore a new area. Well actually I did already do some exploring of this are through Google Earth and Panoramio. Although the weather isn't super, I do hope to get some shots inbetween the showers.

Hi Niek

Wonderful shot again my friend! Indeed the spectacle of light was beginning here and i definitely want to see more of it :)
Your composition here is absolutely lovely! The positioning of the beautiful red spot and its reflection at about 1/3 of the length of the frame is very nice and i also like how you included some of the elements near you to give some FG interest, too.
Very exact exposure overall, getting excellent details from all corners and depths of the scene. Very well done, mate!


PS: the best of luck today!

the weather here is pretty bad too, hope it's good for your exploration. Great compsotion, FG rocks are perfectly placed to achor the sceme and the view itself is wonderful. The colour from the sky in the water adds a nice touch too.

Beautiful composition, Niek.
The reflection of the colourful sky on still water looks magical. The rocks in the foreground balance out the landscape admirably well.
A great shot from your visit to Norway.
Thanks alot for sharing the image.

Hello Niek,
What a wonderful early morning capture across this lovely lake. Fantastic light and I like the rippled reflections in the water. Nice heap of stones in the foreground to add some depth in this very nicely composed capture.
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Hi Niek

This view looks a little like the Lake District in Cumbria. Great composition with very good use of light.

Beautiful colours, and lovely reflection, the ripples of the water add a rather nice painterly effect.

Hi Niek

It looks like I have missed some great shots from you. The light here is of course wonderful giving that rose blush to the scene. It has that feeling of a tranquil evening. It has a well thought out composition with the well placed FG details and the horizon perfectly placed. Lovely.



Hi Niek,

When did you sneak this one in? How did I miss it!? Oh... that is when I was in Montana having a heart attack etc :P I was going through your gallery seeing which images seemed dark. This one doesn't seem dark at all. It is so baffling. It's lovely. It's better than lovely. It is quite beautiful! I love the color of course and the foreground rocks are really nice.
