Picture of grass straws and boathouses as background – Winter scenery in Northern Norway

February 23rd, 2008 · 6 Comments

Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera February 22nd 2008. Click image for larger view.
In this picture you can see some straws growing at the coast in Northern Norway. I love the texture of this kind of straws so I thought they would look great together with the old boathouses.
I wanted to get the boathouses a bit out of focus so I pushed the aperture down f/3.5 and focused on the grass straws to get the depth of field that I thought would suit the composition.

Check out my other boathouse pictures here. I’m starting to get a nice collection of boathouse photos 🙂

    Looks wonderful. There is a lot of motion in this photograph. The grass points up and to the left, while the clouds in the background direct your eye up and to the right. Very interesting contrast!

    I enjoy the picture for what it is, but also because it reminds me of home in New England.
