Another scene from Vikersund, captured the same day as my previous post. The village Vikersund has around 3100 residents and is most famous for the ski flying hill, Vikersundbakken. The ski flying hill has the ski flying world record on 253,5 meters set by Stefan Kraft (Austria) in March 2017. The ski flying hill is located a few kilometres down the road on the other side of the lake. I found the boats and the tranquil atmosphere very attractive.

Hello Erling,
What a wonderful view. There is so little motion in the water that the reflections are really gorgeous. The warm light also add to a lovely and peaceful view. The composition is excellent, I particularly like the inclusion of the boats.

Hej Erling,
Detta är en vacker vy över sjön men det som slår mig direkt är det otroligt vackra ljuset. Den varma tonen förstärker intrycket av speglingarna i det stilla vattnet, inte minst båtarna och masterna i förgrunden. Det är väl komponerat och tekniskt utmärkt.

Hello Erling,
Yet another beautiful corner on the bay, with perfect light condition and the reflection upon calm water surface.
The boat and bridge well placed and shown on right, off-center image to allow exceptional clear sight to the far side shore.
Good evening,

Hello Erling,

The mirrorlike surface of the water would certainly have attracted my attention as well. The atmosphere is tranquil and dreamy. You composed and exposed the photo perfectly.

Hello Erling,
The almost perfect reflections in the quiet water create a very calm feeling.
Excellent composition and sharpness.
Pretty natural colours.

Hi Erling
have you ever been ski jumping? haha, thats one thing I probably wouldn't do.

that water you captured is so still, it really is like a sheet of ice or glass, giving that perfect mirror image.
nothing to complain about with this one my friend. peaceful and serene from top to bottom, good to have the reflections straight across the frame. cheers

HI Erling, Bonjour,
Nice scene with a calm water and reflection on water,
Naturel colors and composition are amazing..
beautiful atmosphere too,
All my compliments..

Hi Erling,

I get a very tranquil feeling from this - the boats are nicely positioned on the right, allowing a panoramic view of the village as well. Very nicely composed !


Oi, Erling!

Bonita foto, a luz é realmente boa. A calmíssima água foi muito bem fotografada, com algumas reflexões bem interessantes. A reflexão dos mastros dos barcos me chamou a atenção.
Foto muito boa!
