One more from this summer's mountain trip to the Jotunheimen National Park area. This is near Gjende, looking towards the fabulous Leirungsdalen. Which was my destination for this trip btw.

Afterglow from the clouds reflecting upon the landscape.

Conditions were not optimal (as they seldom are), but I liked these yellow flowers and the way they stood out against the somewhat dark, and dramatic backdrop of the snow-clad mountains and clouds.

Thanks for looking. Much appreciated. I just wish I had more time to reply to everyone's comments and give my proper thank-yous. I still care what you guys say!

It's getting more and more difficult to remain active here at dA. Mostly due to other activities away from the internet. I guess life has gotten to me. At last.

I don't really need to see your name above a shot to be able to recognize your work immediately. There's always such a feeling of calmness to your images, whether they are waterscapes, mountains or fields, and the technical aspects from composition to exposure are always wonderfully done.

This is a lovely image Anders, the exposure is perfectly timed and my eye moves effortlessly through it. Wonderful
