Sunset at Solbjørnvatnet

By ColWalder
Coming back to Solbornvatnet – the Sun Bear Lake – was a joy. One of my favourite locations from my Norway trip in February, when I last visited the lake was covered in a spectacular sheet of broken ice. This time there was no ice, being too early in the season for the lake to freeze, but we were instead treated to a wonderful feast of Autumn colours in the valley and blades of sunshine cutting through the mountain peaks as the sun set. By the time we had hiked up to the top of the mountain where Solbjornvatnet dwells the sun was already creeping behind the mountain tops; I chased the dying light, racing westwards around the lake to get this shot.

Top of the top drawer. I'll wait for the site to give it an EC and if they don't I'll run naked through EPZ Head Office waving a dock leaf.

I'm just sizing one up now. Blush

16 votes is nothing short of criminal for this.
At least we know why they call it The Land of Light.

Superb image with magical light. Like Keith I am very surprised this hasn't got more votes.

Oh, of my favourite landscapes. This is a stunning photo combining all the elements that make this land so special, the mountains, the water, the light, the little remote hiding places... I love it and if I could still give a UA - this photo would definitely get it.
It just evokes so many good memories of long hikes, drinking from some clear spring in the mountains, sitting on top of a rock and just enjoying the silence...
