That is pretty cool how the water is carving through the rock!

It must be an amazing place!

You really know how to frame the shots to make them strong. Very well done!

Sigmund Rise on July 10, 2007

Thank you Roger.. this is a difficult one, big problems with the light. A few hundred exp. The river is carving the rock with 1mm pr. year, thats about 10 meter deep since last iceage.

Roger Sandvik on July 11, 2007

Yes, I realized that you must have had a lot of work on this one due to what must have been a great difference between light and shadow, and yet manage to use fast enough shutter speed to keep the water from beeing "blurry". The fact that you can see the foam on the water that sharp gives away that you must have done several trial shots. The sharp image of the foam actually plays an important role in making this shot so interesting. Very good work.

Thank you Roger, it took me 3 days, and I am still not satified.

Roger Sandvik on July 11, 2007

I think I know how it is :) I have a few spots I keep returning to just because I never get 100% done with it. I more feel than know that a place has a greater potential, and keep trying to capture that special picture during different times of day, different weather and different seasons. I guess that is some important part of the facination :)

Hei Sigmund, fine farger og flott dybde i dette supre bildet. Det eneste jeg savner er noe å sammenligne størrelsen på kløften med. Masse hilsner fra Paul.
