Picture of lonely straw and winter mountains in Northern Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera March 7th 2008. Click image for larger view.
In this picture you can see a lonely straw against some snow covered winter mountains in Northern Norway. I love the deep blue color on the sky in contrast to the white mountains.
I used a low f-stop, f/2.8, to get a shallow depth of field to get the mountains and the rest of the scenery a bit out of focus, while the straw is in focus.

I’ve done something similar in a scene with some grass straws and boatsheds.

    Wow that is different from anything I have seen on here.
    Your right about the blue its a great contrast and I don’t think I have ever seen sky over here with such a nice shade blue.

    I love your images…….the clarity of the light is really obvious.

    I really think there are those that look and those that really ‘see’. You really ‘see’ and most importantly RECORD it with your camera. Great find i shall surely be back. Bright moments. wendy
