Hi all!

My wife and I had a rest somewhere between Svelgen and Isane when we were on the way from Bergen to Alesund. There was a wonderful waterfall there, unfortunatly I don't remember its name. There are so many... That day we were lucky with the weather, and after we had had our coffee, I had a closer look at that marvellous "fossen" and the tiny rainbow it generated.

Kind regards

Bellissima immagine. Buono l'effetto dell'acqua che scende.
Anche l'arcobaleno appena accennato da un tocco di fiabesco.
Ciao emilio

Hi Markus,
A very descriptive moment of the strenght of nature!
I like so much the POV used to cath this waterfalls, and the mist created.
It's very good also the inclusion of the rainbow seen on the image.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Markus,
My special compliment towards this outstanding landscape of waterfall!
With the f/7.1, this is trully a beautiful scene with the mist and shadows in the fall!
this is a top quality photo!
well done and thanks for sharing, Markus!
greeting from NZ

You are a genius as you are gracious. Your pictures carry messages and show movement in landscapes as no other. It is a pleasing way to start my day on TN.

Hi Markus,
This shot is very good. The great light-fall gives the place something mysterious. Very well seen!
This is why one is travelling to Norway, is'nt it? Good work.
Regards, Ruud

Hello Markus,
A lovely waterfall captured with pleasant effect!
I'm surprised to see this much motion blur at 1/640, but maybe I'm tricked by the moisture in the air...
I fine composition with a hint of light refraction, that is rainbow!

Bonsoir Markus,
Les spécialistes du paysage ont su reconnaître la beauté de cette image. Encore une fois, elle gagne à être vue à plusieurs reprises et on y découvre toujours autre chose. Grande finesse de l'ensemble. Je suis étonnée par la vitesse choisie. Je dois dire que je le préfère ainsi.
Bonne soirée encore

Hi Markus
Ich habe übersehn,dass du auch deutsch sprichst wie ich und habe vorher in englisch einfach nicht die richtigen worte gefunden wie ich es finde.Ich finde dein Bild sehr gut
Vorallem der Regenbogen der noch leicht zu sehen ist macht das Bild sehr interesant
Die Schärfe ist trotz den vielen Wassertropfen noch sehr gut man kann viele details von den Felsen sehen
Grüße aus dem Allgäu

Hi Markus,
What a magnificent photo! The details and crips feel to this photo is most wonderful. I really like how you opted to freeze the motion in this waterfall since it perfectly shows the speed and power of the water. The rainbow that you captured in the mist gives this photo a very special feeling. I love the contrast between the black rock and the white water. The clarity and sharpness of this photo are awesome.

P.S. I have to add this to my favorites.

Hi Markus

How much lucky you stood!! You achieved a splendid moment!!

Big regards


Hi Markus
Very nice image. From one side we can see the power of falling water, and from the other this delicate fog with small rainbow.
The picture is very sharp, and well composed.
Thanks for sharing

Hi Markus,

I just got your comment on TE so I looked to your account on TN and I see - how similar is this photo to my post from Iguazu Falls. The difference is you were on a boat (on a riverside?) I was more upper, I love how foggy rainbow diagonal cuts this photo.

Best regards, Piotr.

now i see how to expose water..
must have been bright here to get the use of f7.1 @640
the rainbow effect is good and brightens the shot immensely
