Nidelva River Waterway where sun never goes down in the summer. Trondheim lies on the south shore of Trondheim Fjord at the mouth of the River Nidelva. At the end of June, the night is only about 2.5 hour long and it may never get completely dark with the sun circling just below the horizon.

beautiful use of colours, the saturation works really well

Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken in Trondheim. The city is located in the west coast of Norway and is set on the south shore of Trondheim Fjord at the mouth of the River Nidelva.
Time
The picture was taken early in the afternoon.
Lighting
In that part of Norway at the end of June, the night is only about 2.5 hour long and it may never get completely dark, with the sun circling just below the horizon. But also during the day the sun never rises very high, giving a unique horizontal sideway lighting. It was that perfect moment; the sky just cleared yet remained dark, and the new wave of clouds was coming from behind the buildings adding to the background.
Equipment
In the last two years i have switched completely to Pentax K1 Mark 2. I no longer carry a long tripod on such distant trips. My Pentax has remarkable 5-directional stabilization and I just need to rest the camera on something steady, even a top of a picket fence or press it against a wall. I am totally sold on a natural light. I often take advantage of existing artificial light, but I never, never, never use an electronic flash outdoors.
Inspiration
Nidelva flows through Trondheim, and then closer to the mouth of the river there are some old storehouses flanking both sides. In old days the fishermen painted their warehouses in different colors. That was helping to correctly navigate the boats when they were coming back with a load of fish in a fog. On the day of my visit, a combination of individual colors, the low position of the sun light and the reflections in the water were just mesmerizing. I almost saw this picture ready for publication.
Editing
Years back I was in love with the mid size cameras and the photographs they were able to capture. Todays digital cameras still lack the range of tonality and details that are so impressive to me. So in everything I do, I try to generate a high class output, permitting enlargement to a significant size with a full range of tones and color. And to achieve that, I always start with the Lightroom and then move to On1 Photo RAW for masking and finishing, and sometime use the Photoshop. Filially I use a very crude Chrome program to decrease the monstrous size of my file to be accepted by the Viewbug, which decreases a quality of the picture on website, but in the end - you got a picture.
In my camera bag
I often strive to produce images resembling a painting. That requires that the picture is sharp and soft at the same time. The Ricoh HD Pentax-D FA 24-70mm F2 does it for me. That's the only lens i carry. Other than the Pentax K1 Mark 2 loaded with two 128 GB cards, I always have with me a Graduated Filter, UV and Circular Polarizer, two sets of batteries, charger, remote timer and USB-3 card reader with a short connecting cord, and lastly the lens cleaning kit in a dust proof sealed container.
Feedback
Break with some of ordinarily accepted rules and push the outcome your unique way. I mean your color, your interpretation of scene, your original finishing. Fell the picture in your gut. You are the best and the hardest judge of your work. Good luck!
