    Photo Assignment: Your best landscape photos

    Here is a place for active photographers to post their finest landscape images. It would be great if you could at the same time include some details on the settings used when doing the shot and with what kind of lens you captured the image(s).

    Outdoors today to refresh my "knowledge" about how to use a LEE Big Stopper filter on my lense.
    A Big Stopper reduses light by 10 stops into the camera, making it possible to do long exposure photography in broad daylight.
    A small waterfall in Freielven river gives a beautiful motif, which I have posted some place in here at CVF before.
    A shutter speed of 1/13th second gives a shutter of 1 minute and 20 seconds with the Big Stopper mounted.

    If some of you do long exposure, or want to try, remember that it is very important to cover up also the seeker on the back of the camera, as light can come to the sensor via that way.
    As can be seen here, I forgot.
    The closest part of the picture got very light in this 2 minutes and 40 seconds exposure due to that.

    This is along road 660 at Ytre Bogge (for you with maps) looking at Eresfjord towards the small place Syltebø and Eresfjord. This is towards Mardalsfossen near the south side of Eikesdalsvatnet lake.

    I'm smiling at the two of you because I just KNEW that pakarang would be drawn to that pier image, Svein!
    It must be years ago now since I had drawn pakarang's attention to such a motif that I'd noticed recurring in his photography in Thailand as well as Norway. (I imagined two photos from his two countries mounted together, and there was another motif pair with a low viewpoint looking along roads in his two countries.)

    Svein, I do understand how excited you are with all your new photo gear, and experimenting and learning what can be done, but the difference between us is that I would probably enjoy all the resulting variations of the exact same subject, perhaps returned to in different weather too - and not just one eventual "perfect" picture.

    I suppose that is why I let pakarang persuade me into two "365" years and you didn't! I even had to limit my pictures' subject matter to make the project more limited and me-possible!

    So true, practice makes perfect!

    It was a bit too bright when I took those pictures though.
    Should've been a bit more cloudy, a little grayer day and the sky should've been darker with my other ND grad.
    But hey, this is the second time I practice using my new filters, so... And the key word here is just that; practice-practice-practice :-)

    I like the middle one.

    It's almost like those I took from the wooden bathing pier at Ranheim when that was my home. The filters effect on the water elevates the images considerably: to the point from a snapshot to a real photograph.

    Not exactly my best landscape photos, as the thread title suggest, but anyway..., here's breathing life into an old thread again.
    I drove the other way around island Frei to go home from work today, to try out my 450mm lense and the new LEE Filters at Freistranda beach.

    Here we see the 994 meters high Reinsfjell mountain, with the communication, radio and tv antennas on top
    (Note the small hut in the lower left corner)

    A very nice summer-y view from the rest area just outside Ålesund, Sterkoder!

    There are so many, many great photos in this Photo Assignment-dept. of CVF, it's making me speachless. Thanks to all and every one who spend time posting :-)
    Here's a picture I took of the "Molde panorama" on my way home from visiting Åndalsnes and M/V FUNCHAL on the 17th October



    And actually in Åndalsnes, here's a view towards Isfjorden

    I get a summer mood with a very Scandinavian sense of the transience of that idyllic season in these tear-jerkingly sensitive images. I’m specially drawn to the dreamy watery distance in the second one.

    Taken on one of the very few days so far this year.
