Award Shortlist   

Stokksnes

By Nick_w      
Well where do I start - I'm over the moon with my last upload, all the user awards, Thank you, Smile the Editors choice, but to cap it off the POTW. It's been such a long time.

This Icelandic series have been successful for me. A dose of "pure" photography was in order after a rather difficult time for me. It has allowed me to refocus (pun intended Wink) on what things are important.

This was from a great evening, with a close friend Coltrane Koh, who some of you may remember from a few years back (shh don't tell him, as he doesn't frequent these parts these days). The Northern Lights have been on my bucket list for years (with or without camera) - we were pleasantly surprised to witness them, as the forecasts weren't great. This is a true pano image - made up of two shots, my usual pano workflow didn't work (Photoshop) so had to revert to PTGUi which worked a treat.

I still have a few to process, but my next couple of uploads will be of a more creative bent, that has been where my photography has taken me over recent years, and in all honesty will be what I concentrate on going forward.

That said, I will not leave it as long for my next landscape "outing" (besides I need one "classic" location for one project Idea I have - so some straight landscape images may too find there way into portfolio once again.

We have occasionally seen a glimpse of the borealis as far south as where we live near Oslo, but never anything this spectacular - we are far to south. hat a great sight this might have been, Nick, and extra pleasing if you were forecast poor odds.
