Another photo from our recent Hurtigruten trip. This was from Bergen to Kirkenes and back. Travelling south, from Bronnoysund to Rorvik, we witnessed a lovely sunset that seemed to last for a very long time. Rorvik is south of the Arctic Circle and towards Trondheim. The Hurtigruten or 'Coastal Express' travels mostly within sheltered waters of the fjords, or between the coastal mainland and the thousands of small islands. Looking west towards the islands the sun was setting on a perfect evening.

A peaceful and serene scene with glorious light and colours. Spot on exposure with superb clarity. The twinkling light and its reflection makes an enticing focal point. A perfect way to end the day.

i colori delle regioni a cavallo del Circolo polare artico sono straordinari e li ho ancora davanti ai miei occhi a distanta di tanti anni dal mio viaggio in quella regione.
In questa il rosso e l'azzurro di incontrano e si fondono in una successione di tinte intermedie che lasciano a bocca aperta.
Bella la natura ma brava anche la fotografa che ha saputo fissare questo incanto.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

This is a very fine sunset capture so well detailed with the tiny bit of sparkling light from the lighthouse gives a great sense of huge scale and depth. Composition is just lovely, it's beautifully exposed and placed, I have no doubts that the evening lighting is enhancing the spring colours and has afforded a bright vibrant and colourful coastal scape. The water reflection and its smoothness is esp. captivating. Gorgeous shot !!!
Thks to your narratives

this is a captivating picture that draws you gently and holds you firmly inside the frame. The colours are very attractive, the composition is delightfully simple and countless tonalities blend to create this fine spectacle. I love all the graduating shades of sunset and the depth with which we can enjoy them. The definition of the mysterious landscape is superb too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

This is fantastic, the colours super the mood splendid, but what I love most of all is the small light house light.

magnifiche le sfumature di questo tramonto e splendida composizione, ben equilibrata, con molto spazio dedicato al cielo che offre il meglio dei suoi colori.
Fantastico il punto luce a sinistra, è il polo d'attrazione giusto per questa composizione.

Fine Rorvik sunset with multiple colored sky reflected dramatically on the water, and the mountainous horizon as a separating zone.
vjmite (4102) 2014-04-11 20:07
A lovely serene photo with a beautiful range of colors, perfectly exposed. Great composition with the single light on the left reflected in the water to form a point of interest.
cargus (9588) 2014-04-11 23:01
Beautiful composition, beautiful colors, well framed and rendered, image well done.!
jjcordier (78960) 2014-04-11 23:01
Le dégradé de couleurs du ciel est vraiment superbe. Très belle image!
kathryn_weir (2056) 2014-04-12 2:37
A very beautiful work of art you have captured . The softness of colour and the tranquility conveyed superbly. The little light on the lower left is a lovely focal point.
Thank for sharing , have a great weekend
kasianowak (7559) 2014-04-12 2:51
Beautiful sunset, I also noticed they seem to last forever in Norway. I like the way the water reflects the colours of the sky creating alternate layers of warm and cool colours. The lighthouse and its reflection is the cherry on the cake.
timecapturer (49288) 2014-04-12 4:59
a wonderfully simple sunset this, almost minimalist in concept, and therein lies the beauty and impact of this excellent shot. Love it!
Enjoy the weekend - B.

A very pleasant and peaceful sunset picture with very good colours. This must have been an enchanted evening.
mjw364 (2) 2014-04-12 8:11
Nicely composed shot with the horizon being placed nicely on the lower third and the light highlighted on the water in the lower left adding that point of interest. Nice colour tones overall too.
gildasjan (42456) 2014-04-12 10:05
C'est simple,bien cadré et évidemment très beau avec cette superbe association de couleurs.
Didi (59046) 2014-04-12 10:17
Magnificient sky with grad colours
Very quiet peacefull ambiance far from noisy towns
CLODO (32140) 2014-04-12 11:22
I appreciate the quietness of this moment, the sky has some superb pink hues while the sea is deep blue. The sun has disappeared under the horizon line, so the lighthouse is now "working".
npecanhuk (69936) 2014-04-12 17:04
Hi! Magnificent place and moment! Very beautiful picture! Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition are all excellent! Cheers, Neyvan
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-04-12 23:07
one can never get bored of the beautiful sunset especially captured with such a quality. I love the delicate and light composition in here which focuses more on the colors and light. The shore line however adds good element to it and contrast nicely with all the pretty tones of the sea and sky. The tiny light from the lighthouse adds more interest.
Thanks for sharing and all the best
SnapRJW (31627) 2014-04-13 2:59
Hello Ann - I love the 'painted' sky here, it looks so delicate and beautifully toned by the wispy clouds. The light and its reflection actually makes this shot work without it I think the beauty of the scene would not be nearly as apparent.
tyro (22132) 2014-04-13 4:58
An interesting and informative note and a stunning photograph to accompany it!
Such a simple and yet pleasing composition with the most glorious light and colours. It would have been easy to go "over the top" and try to oversaturate those colours but you have processed this image very sympathetically to produce a stunning photograph with fabulous natural colours and exquisite details and clarity. In fact, your sharpness here is amazing considering that it was taken from a moving ship at 1/60 second on a focal length of 85mm.
Cricri (111339) 2014-04-13 8:34
C'est tout simplement magique, un joli contraste des couleurs pastels, avec les montagnes en contre jour, un instant que l'on contemple en silence...
rychem (27999) 2014-04-13 8:53
Great! I like these contrasting colors an this little light of the lighthouse reflected in the water :),

Very nice capture of this typical Northern scenery.
Gives the viewer the feeling of endlessness.

calm and peaceful, amazing colors and a wonderful experience to see this. What more can i say about this beautiful pastel painting from Norway, well done!

Hello Ann, lovely colors and an overall simplicity to the composition and renders a most lovely photo from your trip to Norway. Very captivating.

wow! what an amazing fotojob. Very good panoramic view with wonderful pastel colors.I like the shot very much.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
willperrett (8265) 2014-04-15 3:21
Gorgeous, subtle colours and an interesting crop (did you decide to lose some of the foreground sea in order to lower the horizon and emphasize that beautiful sky?) For me, the navigational light on the promontory on the left is an important element and acts as a focal point for the photograph.
fabbs99 (16817) 2014-04-15 23:52
Good shot of the Sunset near Rorvik .Fine natural colours and good composition.Very well captured.TFS.
brianmcc (6219) 2014-04-18 10:49
the simplicity of this picture is wonderful and very striking. the beautiful colour tones are superb; i especially like the painterly quality in the sky with the wispy clouds spread across the scene as though from a paint brush. the silhouetted landscape is also excellent and helps secure the other elements of the picture.
SWEETFREEDOM (23438) 2014-05-04 10:05
Beautiful landscape and sunset. Very nice colors and sharpness.
