A special morning with a magic mountain. I added the 10 stop as the light broke through and began to creep across, then cursed myself for not having two tripods.
Thanks Claire for keeping me going. Mx

A wonderful composition. Sublime simplicity Melanie. The colour contrast between the blue water and shky and the sunlight mountain is just perfect,

A beautiful shot, the warmth of this sunlit mountain contrasting so well with the cool blues throughout the rest of the scene.
I have seen images by another member from the Lofotens but in a winter setting.

Very nice, I'm glad I'm not the only one who as thought about a second tripod when using the big stopper.

It was indeed a magic mountain. I have never seen such light before and using the Big Stopper an inspired and brave move as there was no guessing how long those colours would last.
