Kálfshamars Lighthouse View Number 2!

Hello everyone,

as the year 2012 draws to a close, here's one more image I would like to share with all of you.

I've written about this location and lighthouse before, just scroll down a few posts and you'll see the first image I posted that was photographed here.

This is another view of Kálfshamars Lighthouse:

This image was photographed with my Nikon D800 and 17-35mm lens. Exposure time was relatively short, at only 30 seconds. This allowed me to keep some detail in the fast moving clouds. With the lighthouse so small in the frame, I really wanted to preserve some texture in the clouds. What drew me in to make this composition were the strong tire marks in the foreground. They made for a natural leading line.

The image was processed in NIK Color Efex 4. The color in the grass is actually pretty true to original, but I used the software to introduce a similar coloration into the clouds and sky.

I also want to use this opportunity to THANK EVERYONE for your support this year. It really makes a difference to hear your thoughts and feedback so please keep those comments and emails coming! I have big plans for 2013, so if you like this blog already I hope to inspire you even more with additional content and other goodies.

Wishing everyone all the very best for a safe and happy holiday season.

See you in 2013!
