Easter Eggs by lolloriva

While waiting for a couple of other photographers that where shooting the famous Uttakleiv Eye spot, I started to have a look around.
So I found those beautiful round rocks that were looking like eggs left in this pond with very nice and interesting sandy patterns on bottom. Since I was waiting for my turn at the Eye I said to myself “why not take a shot of this?”. And here it is … Hope you like it!

PS: this is the same picture I posted yesterday and then took down after an hour or so. I don’t usually do this but in this case a good friend of mine made me aware of what I considered a major problem with the sky darkness that was not matching the rest of the exposure making it looking unnatural. Sometimes you just don’t see an issue until someone tells you that there is something wrong and it was the case for this picture. Thanks again for the much appreciated help! 🙂

A panorama of three horizontal shots taken from Uttakleiv beach in Lofoten islands. The rocky beach was full of interesting textures but I was struggling with the light as there were absolutely no low clouds to block the direct sunlight. So I had to wait until very last moment to capture the sunset or use some obstacles like I did here. In the end it turned out fine with the sharp sunburst behind the rock with zero flares and nice golden light at the edges of the frame.

The Northern Light by ZacRobinson

A late spring sunset at Uttakleiv Beach in Lofoten, Norway. This shot was captured a couple of days prior to the start of the Arctic Day, or Midnight Sun, where the sun stops setting for 7 weeks. It is facing nearly directly North from the beach.

This beach is located just outside of Leknes, one of the major towns in the Southern Lofoten. The wind was whipping small sandstorms up from the beach and this was occasionally mixed with sea spray. The gear held up well despite the weather, and I was able to snap a few frames from this position where a snowmelt stream joins the ocean.

The light was simply incredible – the best from our week of rain and sleet in the Lofoten.
