The shortest day of the year...
Even though I live in southern Norway we are still pretty far north. At the time that this photo was shot there was propably only an hour of light left before the sun set. Can at times feel like an eternal sunset.

Lens: Sigma 10-20mm DC EX
Filter: Canon 77mm protection
Location: Hålandsmarka, Rogaland, Norway
Time and date: 21st. Dec 14:53

I've been watching your pictures for a while, and I think I begin to fall in love with your artwork =)

I've chosen this particular picture because I don't want to say anything negative, cause' most of them are almost flawless, and this one is the most flawless of all =). The only thing that causes my disgust is the frame. Please, do not spoil such an adorable pictures with this nasty white background and even more horrible shadow. There is no need in it. It looks absolutely abominably both on screen and on print. I suggest you use just simple 2-3 pixel black border, that will be enough to create visual accent and distract the picture from the background.

And the picture itself just have nothing to carp at. Composition is very rigorous, colors are very fine, contrasts between warm and cold, between dark and light are consistent. Just keep making such brilliant artwork =) You don't need these moaning critiques ;)

Thank you for viewing and for the comment.
I do like this photo myself, although I wish I could get snow a little more white... it should be possible, but when I made the attempt all the other nice colours were sort of lessened or lost alltogether.

Thank you!
Shortest day of the year so the entire day was filled with warm sunset like colours and the sun didn't really go far above the horizon so the overall cast was very special.
