Edge of the Ledge by stiann

Autumn colors are peaking in this damp and dramatic waterfall environment in western Norway. In this area the Hardangervidda high mountain plateau steeply drops off into the fjord areas of western Norway. For scale, the waterfall to the left is some 535 feet tall. I’m guessing there’s a ~700 feet drop from the ledge I’m standing on. Didn’t fall in though, just barely. 🙂

Moonlit Silence by stiann

A biting cold night at a glacial runoff lake in Norway. There wasn’t a breath of wind in the air and the lake laid motionless like glass. The silence was only interrupted by the crackling sound of ice forming along the shoreline. Press M for full resolution and H to view on black.

Triangular by stiann

Eggenipa is a landmark peak that rises up in between farms and glaciers in western Norway. Shot this as a long exposure to catch some interesting and uneven cloud movement. Press M for full resolution or H to view on black.

Note that I did separate exposures for the sky and the lake, so the reflections might not add up exactly due to the LE. Actually I don’t have the two in the same shot at all, chose to keep the actual exposures instead of faking a reflection.

Recent Past by stiann

What you see here is a traditional Norwegian farm with authentic wooden buildings dating back up to 500 years. As for the tech, this is a 240 degree panorama bracketed for dr, focus and sharpness with the added complication of a flare free scene with the reasonable clean sunstar.

Thanks for stopping by, any feedback appreciated.
