From Toffa Berg Photography

Image of the week 44 – 2013

New week and yes, a new image. Earlier I’ve presented many of my earlier images to you, by this time I thought I should bring you a newer image. This time it’s the lighthouse at Kvassheim.

The lighthouse at Kvassheim, the southern most lighthouse of Jæren, Rogaland, Norway.
Nikon D800, Nikon AF 28mm f2.8D, Kenko Polarizer, Lee 0.6 ND-Grad.
I’ve presented Kvassheim for you earlier. On my former blog when I was at Zenfolio, I had an image of Kvassheim when I showed you the first image I made with the aid of my Sekonic L-358 lightmeter. This shot here is also done with the aid of the same lightmeter as well as Lee filters. Two new changes for you this time. In the past I’ve used Formatt Hitech filters, but as I’ve discovered, they are not up to the job in connection with the use of the Nikon D800.
What made this shoot a bit special was that the conditions when I shot this image was so dramatic, and that was also the reason why I wanted to show this to you this week. Of in the direction of the North sea there where almost cloudless sky, but a dramatic set of clouds was rolling in from the highlands of Jæren in the east. This clash made for some great drama that I feel I captured in this image.
