Perhaps I should call this 'Fjord et lumière'?Smile
Taken down the road at our local fjord (he says in a casual, throw-away manner).
What? You mean you don't have a local fjord??
Anyway, we were parked up, having a cup of coffee from the thermos, when it started to be somewhat less light. Darkness was a-fallin'. Rather strange since it was the middle of the afternoon, but there again, the way this so-called summer has been so far...Sad
Anyway, the light went all peculiar and eerie. That sailboat on the far left horizon was in imminent danger of being dumped on by large amounts of precipitation, and the seagulls had decided to call it a day and use shanks' pony. Two minutes after I took this, the skies opened and the rain gods left us in no doubt as to their mood...

Many thanks for your recent comments. They are always appreciated.

Many thanks for bothering.

A beautifully composed low light shot, Malc, but even better than the composition is the way the light is dancing all over the ripples in the fjord, catching on the top of the posts and brightening the f/g grasses.
Exposed to perfection and capturing a wonderful atmosphere that must have been magical experience first hand.
Ronnie.

That light is quite extraordinary but reminiscent of the light we get in the northwest of Scotland. You managed to get a good composition despite the incoming storm Malc! Love those cheesed off seabirds on the old pier.

The light in this image could have only been created by one man, and captured by another.

I'm often struck by the vivid, aggressive light that a menacing storm sky can produce.
We have a local castle but sadly no local fjord. What, you mean you don't have a local castle...? Wink

How lovely, especially with the details of the grass and the sail. Beautiful.
I've got a Ford nearby; is that the same thing?

The Norse gods were renowned for the strength and simplicity of their taste - no messing with cats, dogs or frogs, just good honest thunder and rain, and plenty of both. I had not realised that the accompanying light was so stunning.
Amazing image.

Bill
