Hi again,

After yesterday's sunrise, here is another fine moment for photography on my trip through the magnificent Norway - a sunset at Geirangerfjord.

The Geiranger fjord (Geirangerfjorden) is a fjord in the Sunnmøre region, located in the southernmost part of the county Møre og Romsdal in Norway. It is a 15 km long branch of the Storfjord (Great Fjord). At the head in the fjord lies the small village of Geiranger.
The fjord is one of Norway's most visited tourist sites and has been listed as a UNESCO Heritage Site, jointly with Nærøyfjord, since 2005, although this status is now threatened by the disputed plans to build power lines across the fjord. (from Wiki)

Hope you'll like it and thanks for visiting :)

Hello Horia,
So your recent trip to Norway was not your first!
A superb sunset view of Geirangerfjorden, the fiery tops of the peaks showing well in contrast to the rest of this superb view and well reflected in the fjord too.
I can see that you talent for landscapes was evident nearly five years ago!
Thanks and kind regards,

What a spectacular view and a great job of capturing it. I noted that you used Pattern Metering. I'll have to give that a try on my next landscape shot.


Hallo Horia
The sun shining on the tips of the peaked mountains is stunning and just so is the glass effect on the water. The scenery as a whole is just so relaxing to look at and I think the feeling you experienced while being so close to it must have been overwhelming. The true colours of nature is brought across so beautifully and you have brought justice to it by this gorgeous landscape. Thanks for sharing this view that has a feeling of tranquility written all over it. Best regards.

Hello Horia,

Hello Horia,

Hi Horia,
It's amazing landscape.Looks like a painting.POV,DOF and composition are wonderful.Very well done!
Thanks for posting..

Hey mate!
This could be a painting by the masters!
Simply stunning composition with beautiful colours and an amazing balance of the elements!
Very well composed, and perfectly presented.

Hi Horia,
Another nice capture of a beautiful landscape. Lovely composition and beautiful colors. Thanks a lot for sharing.

My dear friend Horia,
I am glad you saw this beautiful spot without a cruise ship!

You are obviously an early riser to register your work at 5 a.m.! Hence it was actually a sunrise and not sunset... :-)

I like ALL your photos - I like this image very much - the only suggestion I would have, is a frame in a softer colour than black to do justice to the glass-clear air and the rising sun's rays on the mountain tops...

The balanced exposure to cope with the bright colours as well as the dark depths of the fjord is masterly! Thank you for showing us your work!

Enjoy the rest of your day
Warm Greetings
