Winter Wonderland

    Recommended: View Large On Black

    This photo is taken in Myrkdalen, a two hour drive from Bergen, Norway. It's becoming a popular destination for skiers, and recently they opened several ski lifts and built an entire ski resort. Each year they have an average of about three meters of snow, and as you can see, my tracks in this picture are deep, so it's pretty hard to walk through without skis or snow shoes.

      Amazing shot!
      How did you do this? I wonder if this shot is possible only with GND filter...?
      Beautifully done!

      Thanks a lot to all of you guys! I really appreciate your comments!

      @Kotemendo: Thanks. This actually an HDR of three exposures, all on f/22. I can't use filters on my Nikkor 14-24mm, so slightly edited HDR's is my option. Not the best solution, but sometimes it works. Just trying to keep them simple and not too overdramatic as most HDRs are.

      Usually we would try to avoid our own tracks in such a beautiful scene, but this tells a lovely little story. If nothing else, it tells us how much effort you put into the photograph. Thanks for sharing.

      @Andrea: Thanks.

      @Peter: It definitely was a struggle, but well worth it in my opinion. Thanks for commenting.
