[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After studying the map driving around over small roads I ended up at the most stunning beach I have ever seen. The pristine white sand the clear blue water were amazing. If the temperature wasn't that low I would've certainly went for a swim and get a tan. Instead I was wearing water and wind proof clothing and a thermo-shirt.

I made several photos during the day with the promise to myself that I would return around sunset. I made sure that each location I visited I took a reading on my compass to estimate what it would look like at sunset. But in the meantime I was enjoying my daytime stay on this great beach.

To add some technical information; on a tripod, hotshoe spirit level, cable release, 0.6 ND grad filter.

Hi Niek,

Hi Niek,

Wow what a splendid wide angle image you have here today my good friend Niek, fabulous exposure and colour tones, very well balanced picture with good use of thirds, superb detailed sharpness, and let me say that the use of your equipment (Tripod etc) has payed dividends, great shot and very well done,

Hello Niek,
I've never been to the north of Norway so it's lovely to see your posts and to read your notes! A pity that it's so cold but hence it leaves a wonderful tranquil landscape unspoilt by man. Excellent DOF and wonderful colours. A fine composition too with fine diagonals although I would personally have included a bit more of the sea.
If I recall it correctly we can include the co-ordinates on our posts? This would be particularly useful to see as regards landscapes, don't you think?
TFS and all the best wishes, Ulla

Hello Niek,
I have read all the above critiques and I keenly endorse them all, in particular the last one before mine. Well done and best wishes.

Hello Niek.
I like your landscape collection. The atmosphere at this beach is well captured with natural tone that is so pleasing. Fine low angle with well managed light and shadow.
Thanks and have a nice day.
