Default Yggdrasil - The World-Tree:

Well, it's just an attempt to find a catching title really. I couln'd just call it 'A tree' - could I...? In Norse Mythology "YGGDRASIL " has quite an important place so I borrowed it for a while. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yggdrasil

This tread is actually a continuation of http://forums.steves-digicams.com/la...ong-water.html as it was shot the very same morning, a few minutes later, before the sun rose clear of the horizon.

This photo has haunted me for some time now, because on one hand, I can still remember the feeling, mood and exitement of the early morning as the sun shone through the mist and painted the golden tree-tops even more gold! All positive vibes really - On the other hand - the exposures wern't too good, because I had to shoot almost straight against the sun and the pictures came out way underexposed with an overexposed sky (naturally)! Today, I managed a HDR-rendering with Tone Compression where all the values are there.

I hope you like it as much as I do:

Remember: This is actually a night-photo!

One of the original shots here, just to show you how dark it still was:

Curious about my photography?
You may look up my small portfolio on the Norwegian photo-forum: http://walter_s.foto.no/ - click - "LATEST" on left bottom of page.
You may then click any thumbnail to view the picture and click again on the displayed picture for an unobstructed full screen view. Enjoy!
