[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There is nothing dramatic in this landscape, nothing like the mountains in the western part of Norway. On the contrary, here we have slowly rolling hills with lakes and ponds scattered all over, connected by small rivers and creeks…

The little creek we see here is typical for the area, and it is populated by river trout. River trout differs from lake trout in the colour of meat; lake trout looks like salmon while the river trout is white. Lake trout is regarded as more exclusive, but the fact is they taste very much the same!


Last week-end I took advantage of the most wonderful weather to bring my camera on a trip to a nearby mountain area with lots of photo opportunities, and I will bring a few of the images in the days to come.

Hi Pablo !
Another wonderful landscape, so typical from you. I love the deep blue color of the sky. Excellent composition and POV, great details and colors, fantastic depth. Seems to be a quiet and peaceful place. Very well done !

Bonjour Pablo!

Ah, Pablo! The colours in this provide more than enough drama. Excellent POV, perfect DOF, grand composition, and attractive frame.

This is a nice simple composition with good exposure and deep depth of focus. I love the light on the pond. I think the polarizer effect is a little too strong making the sky overly saturated in the center. Turning the filter slightly off maximum can help avoid this. I have a hard time seeing it sometimes however.

Thanks for sharing

Hi Pablo,
Excellent Landscape composition my friend.
Your Hoya PL-Cir makes sky awesome.I wish they sell that for my Canon 350d(XT) here in Illinois but they don't and I had to buy their cheap version but it does not realy work.
Great photo with great pov,dof,colors,focus,sharpness,note and framing.Well Done.TFS

Hello Pablo
Look at that big blue sky.....it's wondrous, the colour is amazing. The hill flowing down to the meadow with the stream, makes for a great composition.....simple yet artistic. TFS Janice

Very simple but effective details in this lovely landscape, Pablo.
I like the angle of demarkation between the earth and the sky. The kind of sky I notice in your images makes me believe it is typical of your part of the world and it is always beautiful.
The composition exudes peace and repose.
Looking forward to many more of this area.
TFS and tske care.

Hi Pablo,
Beautiful panorama. Interesting sky and cloud formantion. Excellent pov and composition. Sharp and crystal clear picture. TFS

Hi Pablo,
excellent composition, nice view with reflections in water, great sky, beautiful landscape. I like it. Well done photo.
Rgs, Aleksander

I Pablo,
I am a sky freak, and this one is beautiful. The graduate blue color enhanced by your CP is impresive especially with the exposure of the f/g and m/g. I love the way you've composed the creek using it as a great leadline toward the Birch trees in the back. The river looks a little too small for fly fishing.

Nice colors and curves make this photo very pleasant. Wonderful sky with light clouds predict splendid weather. Rusty color of the wet stones brings some pleasant reddishnes to complete the RGB of the shot.

Hi, Pablo.
This is beautiful. Congratulations on exposure. Nice composition. Good sharpness.

Very nice color and POV. Good composition with the earth devide from the sky by the white cloud. Nice

Hi Pablo,
Wonderful landscape, typical from you. I love the deep blue color of the sky.


You, personally, may not regard this register as "dramatic".
However, if you look carefully at the "richness" of the BLUE of this capture you will surely see what I "see".
I cannot see the trout; but, I "see" the magnificient reflections of the greenery and even the "hint" of the blue
sky within that tiny pond.
You are truely humble. Good for you.
Friendly greetings from Canada from Mario.

Hi Pablo,

A good POV of the creek under a beautiful sky, the photo has a good composition, DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.
