Last week we went to a place named Månafossen, a valley formed from the glacial slides after the last Ice Age, in the mountains some 60 kilometers from Stavanger. The weather wasn’t friendly with us, but it elicited the fog and clouds, and left a mystic impression. I don’t shoot much B&W, and these kinds of images doesn’t crowd my harddisk, but I think the filters and the monochrome gives something to this image that a standard color version couldn’t do.
I used the chance to to play around with some filters which I seldom use. But I found the combination of a polarizer and a 0.8 ND filter did the trick, and underlined the erie atmosphere of this beautiful spot, Norways 7th largest waterfall.
Some may say that a Wetlands like Norway doesn’t impress much if this is the kind of waterfall we can show for, but you have to search hard to find falls of equal size many other places. I’ve tried, and I know.
By the way: I’ve tried out a new Watermark for this image. I haven’t worked much with Actions in Photoshop CS4, but fifteen minutes of testing gave the result you see in this image.
