Tysfjord is the place in Lofoten area (Norway) where last decades large groups of killer whales gather in early winter. Days then are getting shorter, but between snow showers, blizzards and clear skies there's also great light in combination with clouds.

oooooh...this is gorgeous, and cooooold! "Brrr" The composition is strong and the light is just fabulous. I wonder how it would look if one were to crop off a little bit of the top...just so that the bright OE area high in the sky didn't compete with your amazing focal point of light on the water. When I scroll the photo up a bit, I like it. It also moves the horizon line a little higher. VERY NICE

TFS and Happy New Year!

Hello Jacob!
This view will directly land in my favorites! I love it! I am not a specialist enough to criticize in detail this image... What i like in it is the colours, the sharpness and the dramatical and cold feeling in it. Great shot!
Greetings and happy new year.

Preciosa panorámica y muy detallada. Los colores son estupendos, muy nítidos. Felicidades Jacob, para tí y para los tuyos.
Saludos, JL.

Hola Jacob.
Bonito paisaje, muy buena la luz y la profundidad.
Feliz año nuevo 2007.

Un muy bello paisaje con gran estética y a pesar del frío, los colores cálidos que la componen son maravillosos, al igual que el envidiable punto de vista desde donde captaste tan excelsa composición.
Feliz Año Nuevo Jacob!

Very beautiful landscape with great aesthetics and in spite of the cold, the warm colors that compose it are wonderful, the same as the enviable point of view from where you captured so sublime composition.
Happy New Year Jacob!

WOW!!! What a landscape!! Gorgeus! This is one reason for what I've ever wanted to go and visit Norway. You have done a really excellent job.
Wonderful sharpness, colors and details.
Best wishes

Hoi Jacob,
Een gelukkig 2007. Dat het een super jaar mag worden.

Ik heb deze foto helemaal over het hoofd gezien, en da's zeker niet terecht. Echt een super mooie foto met een prachtig vergezicht en heel erg mooi licht. Je belichting is gewoon perfect, met erg mooi detail in de voorgrond. Al vind ik het wel jammer dat ik op sommige plekken de randen van de bewerking iets te duidelijk kan zien. Maar dat neemt niets weg van de schoonheid van deze foto.

:) morgen

bonjour jacob

waaaaaaaaaahooooooooo superbe photo j'aime beaucoup magnifique



The scene would be great with just the water, distant mountains and that lovely light, but some foreground interest and great texture is provided by the snow covered foliage, so even better!
