Knowing that we might hit another "tourist spot", we went on a hike to Trulltunga, Norway(Troll's Tongue) thinking that this bad weather wouldn't give us a great view.

I love the sun hits the water and let us see the mist rising. It gives dynamism to the photograph which is not at all obvious. Excellent catture!

lacks sharpness, be carefll.

Behind The Lens

Location
The picture was taken on top of Trolltunga in Norway.
Time
It was about 4 to 5 p.m. in the afternoon.
Lighting
We had only about 5 minutes to take the shot before the heavy clouds from behind the mountain rolled in and covered the whole area making it almost impossible to see our own feet.
Equipment
Sony A900 and a Zeiss 16-35 f/2.8 . No tripod, no Flash.
Inspiration
It was actuallz just a spontanous idea once we have reached the Top.
Editing
Yes, I shot the picture in RAW mode and developed it in Photoshop
In my camera bag
Sony A900 Sony A99 Zeiss 16-35 f/2.8 Sony 70-200 SSMII Sony HVL-58
Feedback
Start the tour to Trolltunga bevore noon since it is a very hard tour especially in the first part and after rain. Bring good, high-top shoes.
