What a wonderful picture showing the stunning beauty of Norway! Just last night I was looking through pictures of Norway, dreaming about when I can go back and visit again- it's the most beautiful place on earth!

Just out of curiosity, do you happen to know the name of this fjord? Congratulations on a marvelous photo! #2587175

Nicely done! Glad your shot was given attention, I can see why!

Where in Norway is this? I have been to Norway myself (western shores of the Oslo Fjord) and am always glad to see other photographers who have been there. Great lighting and it definitely captures a bit of Norway. Good job! #2588132

Bob Chance 3/29/2006 12:37:32 PM

The kind of scene most photographers only get to dream about.
Absolutely gourgeous!
The subject, the composition. The stormy sky in the background really adds to the depth as well as the brightly lit gunwale on the foreground boat. As close to perfect as it gets.
Congratulations! #2588175

Mike F. Anderson 3/29/2006 4:36:35 PM

Incredible capture Adam! This image looks like something that we can only dream about stumbling upon. It's the kind of scene that for lack of ever really finding one like it, painters create one of their own with everything in it that would create the perfect scene and then here you've found for real. Not only is the scene beautiful, but you have done an excellent job with your composition, lighting, exposure, mood and just about everything else that makes a perfect landscape. Congratulations on the POTD and I agree with others above that this should be reentered into the contest. It's breathtaking! #2588906

Wendy Stevenson 3/29/2006 5:38:53 PM

Hello Adam,
This is a beautiful photograph. I just wanted to add to shoot even if the weather doesn't look great at that time. You never know how the shot turns out and most of the times the first shot is the best. Congrats on this beautiful win! Best wishes from holland, Corné #4784026

Joyce D.Z. 12/13/2007 12:23:02 PM

I love how this is lit! Amazing!! #5204503

Laura E. Swan 1/26/2008 3:35:16 PM

What a special photograph, Adam. The colors are rich and deep...the boat look very cozy there, just hanging out.

I have a "Boat & Scenery " photo that you might like that I took in Banff, Alberta. Canada. It's just titled "Canoe".

I don't like the sky in my photo but I love the rest of the picture. I'd love your profesional feedback. I am just starting out. 5 day member!

I think maybe I need a good photo program (or like you said -To be able to return to a place for the best conditions for a great shot-)

Anyway love yours and congratulations.

Taken in the Norwegian Fjords this September. I passed these boats a few times throughout the week. Each time the weather was rainy and windy and so as a result they were simply not worth photographing. On the final day, everything came together and I got the shot I had been hoping for. A good reminder to me of the importance of returning to a location!
