You have done yourself a first prize here. This is just how i remember Norway. You can have such immense silences. Even the water has no ripple.
Aksel from Norway: Thanks to you and the beautiful nature in Norway, I can't take credit for that smile

Hi Aksel. I dunno what else to say, all the really nice things have already been said before I got around to my visit!! Aah, I know, nobody has mentioned the really wonderful reflections!! smile I think even if you had gone with a shorter exposure, the photo would have been excellent and maybe might have had even more mood, can't be sure though. Great piece of photography mate. Kindest regards, Neil.
Aksel from Norway: Thanks, you could be right smile I didn't try any shorter exsposures but I know I will return to this place, so who knows what I will try next time...

Wow! That's 'some' picture!

So, educate me please, I can't find any photography courses so I'm asking dumb questions here, there and everywhere. Why did you choose such a long shutterspeed? 25 seconds seems a very long time, but it's given a truly magnificent picture.
Aksel from Norway: Thanks smile I'll explain how I was thinking taking this pic.

I wanted a different light than day-light, and at 22.30 in the evening it's dark without beeing black - there is this darkt blue light. I't was no wind and I wanted to get as much as possible in focus so I went for a f-stop of 18, and automatically I needed a long shutterspeed to get enough light. There is always some smal movement in the fjord as well, so with the long shuterspeed the surface get this soft tuch...

25 seconds?!? How did you do that! When did you shot this? At night, after sunset? It's simply awesome! I am an amateur and I try to learn from everyone, so please tell me how you did that! smile
I love the title too, it is a great contrast with the calm and peace that your picture makes me feel!
Aksel from Norway: Thanks smile I'm an amateur too smile I used a tripod with a remote controll to avoid shake and blur.
