Taken 5 days ago from my balcony. My dad has also posted a misty picture from our balcony, but I found this a bit different. We have a great view and on misty days it's wonderful to watch the landscape from 130 masl. This picture shows a part of the outer Hordaland region, a county with numerous islands and fjords. All the hills in the distant background are part of islands.
The winter in Bergen has been a disappointment to me so far. I have only been skiing here 3 days, and that was in the beginning of December. No snow has fallen since then, but at least it has been freezing temperatures for the last 2 weeks down to -10 and no rain for once!!!

this is really eye catching photo and I love all these layeers in the landscape which compose together beautiful mosaic. Fabulous view and very well delivered. Great perspective and depth, well managed colors and light.
Thanks for sharing!

Une magnifique vue, ce paysage valonné, mélé à la brume crée une atmosphère très agréable.
C'est très bien fait

a moody landscape thanks to the mist and the soft light.
chrislo (4155) 2013-01-25 9:35
This is a fascinating landscape and you've made a great picture of it. I love the contrast between the coloured sky and the black and white lower part of the image. The low lying mist really adds the right amount of atmosphere to this scene. Perfectly executed work.

Un gran paisaje. De algo tan cotidiano como un atardecer se pueden obtener buenas fotos, como ésta.

Magnificent shot Fredik, the scene looks unreal, so magic, so fantastic and so well taken! Thanks!
eldancer1 (27855) 2013-01-25 9:43
Wow! Awesome panoramic view of this landscape! I like the effect of the mist on the mood and the different shades of colors separating those mountains. Great lighting and dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

This is awesome picture and I like the use of a telephoto lens to get the frame you wanted.
Good use of tones too to match the mood.

Wow, view is beautiful, Fredrik. Amazing misty landscape. Very good photowork. I like it a lot.

Wow! What a fantastic landscape post! Love it! You did a great photo job here with a perfect light management and sharpness. The result is stunning. Lovely work.
Romano46 (18446) 2013-01-25 11:19
questa tua è un vero spettacolo! I piani che si susseguono creano un ambiente fantastico che la nebbia rende ancora più suggestivo ed il cielo rosso e cupo nello stesso tempo fa da degna cornice al tutto.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
emilbo (22598) 2013-01-25 13:52
Quel beau paysage brumeux de fin de journée et j'aurais cru plutôt le matin avant de lire ta note. Les îles qui émergent de la brume sont magnifiques et j'aime bien aussi la partie éclairée en avant-plan. Le beau ciel orangé ajoute de la couleur à la photo.
Toutes mes félicitations!... et bonne fin de semaine,
npecanhuk (65434) 2013-01-25 13:56
Special regards to the management of light, colors, chosen pov and compsoition! I love that! I really enjoy the details of that mist that partially covers all those hills!
TFS - congrats,

An amazing point of view from your balcony.
A splendid landscape of this part of hordaland region,
a superb sunset with great contrast and light with a lovely misty atmosphere too,
Sorry for you for the temperature with no skiing and the cold winter too..it is the same think in Quebec canada too,
the ski center is closed because it'is to cold..-28 celcius and more...
A great shot Fredrik..congradulations and very well done..Michel
chrisvek (7001) 2013-01-25 17:27
Wow!What happened here?Excellent composition and so amazing atmosphere.Great colors and lightning.Well done.
Have a nice day
PaulVDV (22099) 2013-01-25 21:42
You really have a fantastic view from your balcony. I'm also curious to see the views in other seasons.
I really like the alternation of the darker parts of the trees with the light coloured parts of the fog or the snow.
I've only very rarely seen pictures with so many different layers behind each other. This is really an amazing landscape.
I hope you will be able to ski in the near future. Winter isn't over yet :)
Best regards, Paul
Zolive (5935) 2013-01-25 22:53
wonderful picture with an unbelievable atmosphere. Hot colors in the sky contrast very well with cold color of the mist. Congratulations.
jjcordier (76322) 2013-01-25 23:47
Superbe photo de ce paysage envahi par la brume. La lumière est belle et il se dégage une intéressante atmosphère de cette belle image.
janneman (2566) 2013-01-26 3:20
I jealous about your balcony view!!
The shadows on the white snow, the soft focus light on the mist, the sharp and black elements in the landscape, the layers that make a beautiful perspective and the touch of orange light in the sky:marvelous!
And all this was een by you and perfect depicted in this magical landscape!
timecapturer (48668) 2013-01-26 3:35
can see why this is popular, the light and atmosphere here are stunning! It is a compelling combination of shapes and tantalising elements but it is the transition from almost B&W up into a glorious colourful sky that gives it power and imapct. Superb!
Enjoy the weekend - Brian.
Curious_Eye (1000) 2013-01-26 3:37
I shall join in and compliment you on this shot. The mist weaving in and out of the mountains looks spectacular. Great depth of field and I like how only the sky has colour, the rest looks almost monochrome, creating an interesting effect. TFS!
knips (172) 2013-01-26 6:36
beautiful and mystic. That is really a picture with a very special mood. Excellent composition.
Thanks for sharing
gildasjan (41582) 2013-01-26 6:41
Très belle image de ce paysage sous ce voile de brume avec un ciel bien cadré aux couleurs délicieuses.
CLODO (30236) 2013-01-26 7:37
you're lucky to live here, and the mist in the valleys reinforces the darkness of the hills. superb colored sky.
holmertz (40983) 2013-01-26 10:34
This is almost like one of those famous photos from Burma, minus pagodas. You certainly have a fabulous view from your house and this picture is terrific. The mist creates a fantastic atmosphere and the sky looks great.
jcpix (13658) 2013-01-26 11:18
Simply stunning, what an incredibly beautiful vista! So many interesting layers and amazing color to this image. You've captured, composed and presented an impressive image. Bravo!
vladic (4421) 2013-01-26 12:43
Magnifique paysage fortement vallonné et à une grande diversité. Une très belle atmosphère brumeuse et de jolies teintes de couleurs, cela créé une atmosphère particulière.
GiovanniG (2582) 2013-01-26 21:50
Very fine composition with wonderful light management. They layers of contrast and light skies with snow in the foreground are remarkable well captured. Bravo Fredrik!
GREGG (7888) 2013-01-27 12:06
A splendid shot,
the mist and the soft light,
the scene looks unreal, so magic
saxo042 (37558) 2013-01-29 2:32
En helt fantastisk stämningsbild, en otroligt vacker utsikt. Dimlagren förstärker konturerna av de skogklädda åsarna. Färgerna av solnedgången är perfekta mot den mörkgröna skogen.
Rehman_cp (218) 2013-01-29 9:54
wow this is an amazing picture. beautiful view....
kim_gwan (418) 2013-01-31 5:57
You have just turned a misty scenery into a magnificent landscape shot.
Layers of trees and greyish foreground really sinks the mood, you illustrated it well with it.
adores (37025) 2013-02-03 16:15
You have this view from your balcony:)? Magical moment, with the golden tonalities of the sky and and the top of the trees that seem to be rising from the mist. A great pov to capture such a beautiful landscape! Good work!
claudeD (32695) 2013-03-07 10:34
wow! what an amazing picture of this wonderful landscape. A great piece of art. I like the shot very much.TFS.
WIth regards from Luxembourg
ACL1978 (7467) 2013-03-19 12:48
Frederik, this is a really beautiful shot - the mist adds and reveals many wonderful layers across the landscape, and the transition into the fiery sky is beautiful. Sorry to hear it's been a disappointing winter, but if it results in shots like this one it can't be too bad!
rigoletto (34255) 2013-05-01 12:09
So, your balcony has such a view!!
I am really jealous.
You made a great job photographing this mist. Wonderful!
Hansaphotos (6771) 2013-06-10 14:29
Dette er et fantastisk bilde med et utrolig bra lys. Du har oppnådd en fantastisk effekt av lyset i kombinasjon med disen. Jeg må si at jeg liker nesten dette bedre enn mitt eget bilde som du skriver om i teksten under her; alt stemmer liksom. Et helt perfekt bilde som fortjener hvert poeng det får - gratulerer:)
