Hello, today I like to show you this spectacle of Nature you can see at the North Cape at Midsummer.

That's captured right at the stroke of midnight.
Unbeleavable that it will not be dark in these days - you even can see a part of blue sky and the sun is still shining behind the dark clouds.

North Cape is a cape on the island of Magerøya in northern Norway, in the community of Nordkapp. Its 307 m high at the northernmost point of Europe, located at 71°10′21″N, 25°47′40″E.

I hope you enjoy this view.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Special presentation Sabine with great compo and colors.

I like it a lot: composition, colors, POV, DOF, focus, sharpness, lighting, background, framing, notes.

I don't like it: nothing to argue.

Very nice portrait with perfect POV and framing.
Cheers!... Ricardo

this is trek earth stuff..what we cant see..someone will show us...its a gift to do this..

Hallo Sabine,
spektakuläre Aufnahme, geradezu dramatisch.
Ich bewundere Tiefe und Farbenreichtum.
Jetzt, recht exakt ein halbes Jahr später, geistern dort wohl die Nordlichter in kompletter Dunkelheit.
Wünsche Dir und Deiner Familie frohe Weihnachten!
Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,

Love this kind of landscape. Amazing colors. DOF is excellent. Like the composition of the sun behind the clouds but having its warm yellow reflection on the ocean. Superb details on the clouds and nice deep blue sky.
If these are usual colors over there in the Scandinavian countries, I guess I know why the official colors of Sweden are yellow and blue.
By the way, did you really had a 30 sec exposure since the clouds are not blurred?

PC :)

hi SAbine und Stephan, ths is wonderfl shot. Strong adn dark. Like in Dante´s inferno.

Hello Wishnu

This is a truly beautiful photo.
The colours are just superb.
A very unusual view, with the blue sky cracking through the dark clouds.
It must have been a stunning experience to have actually been there to take this shot.

Thanks for sharing it with us.



Great shot! Excellent view of the sky. Good composition and lighting.
