So finally the summer decided to come to Norway, it only waited until May 19th - but better late than never.
The last few weeks have been a total mess, its been raining almost none stop, with heavy winds and boring grey skies. But as I drove home from work yesterday the weather suddenly cleared up and I knew that I had to go out for a walk with my camera that evening after I had put my kid to sleep.
I went to a place called "Guttormsvauen" here in Hvaler where I live, from the parking lot its about a 15 minute walk before you're out by the water and the rocks. Having been there several times before I didn't have any high hopes of capturing anything new - and to be honest I struggle to find decent or good compositions out there, but none the less, its a nice walk and I wanted to be outside for a couple of hours.
After having walked around for a bit, not finding anything particular that I felt I wanted to photograph I put my gear down and just walked around the mountain looking, thats when I came over a spot that I haven't seen before, even though I have been there hundreds of times.
The light was quickly fading, so I had to run back and get my gear, but I was to late, most of the natural light had already disappeared and I was thinking about packing up my gear. But then I remembered that I had my headlamp, so I tried to illuminate the near foreground with it, and having never used artificial light in nature before - I think it came out pretty cool.
When I had captured this I packed up and almost ran back to my car, because I remembered another scene that I wanted to capture as well, but as I got to my car it was no longer any light left - so that will be for another day.
So until next time, have a good one!
