Another kind of light - The occurrence of a rainbow may also be a magic moment. Here the angler even looks at the arc on the sky and creates a connection to the beautiful phenomenon.

Basic waterscape - This was I had to work with: the sun setting in a very dense layer of clouds just over the horizon introducing a lot of contrast into the picture

Boat in BC in B/W - This isn\'t actually black-and-white, but the fog created the most fantastic, flat, soft light, which dimmed down all colors. I took a whole bunch of pictures in this light of both the water and banks, the boat and the other angler I was with.

Close - This is quite close and not at all as exciting as the silhouette pictures. Of course it\'s great seeing a face and a smile, but the darker profile with no details seem to work better.

Closer - Hands are always interesting and isolating the angler\\\'s hands and the reel against the sky and water had a good effect

Get more - Always shoot a row of images when you\'re exposed to glorious light. Vary the orientation, the zoom and the exposure to get as many different aspects of the magic.

Grey matter - Great light is not only experienced around sunrise and sunset. This picture was taken in the middle of a bland and grey day where the sun suddenly burst through and created quite a magic light.

Horizontal and low - Another view of the same scene, here from a low standpoint

Low sun, low stance - Going low also applies to sunset pictures like this. Getting the sun below the angler\'s head emphasizes that it really is low.

Minutes after - A few minutes after I had my glorious B/W light the fog lifted and the whole magic was turned into an ordinary sunny day.

No cheating - Promise! It really looked like this. All I had to do was point a shoot. Notice the small angler in the bottom left corner. I didn\'t plan for him to be there. He just was. This combination will not appear again in a thousand years.

Same morning, different picture - Notice the angler in the distant background on this picture. He is the same angler who occurs on the very orange image taken in the mist. This picture is taken within minutes of the other one but yet it\\\'s very different. And the whole scene was gone in less than 10 minutes.

Silhouette - Standing a little higher than usual I could isolate this fisherman against the reflections of the sunset in the water and get a good profile of him.

Slow shutter - This picture was done late at in the light Scandinavian night. Using a rock for support and a shutter speed of 10 seconds I was able to get the light and the drama of the clouds. The long shutter opening meant that the clouds moved while exposed, which is why they are blurred.

Symmetry - The symmetry of the sky and the reflection in the water can always e used to add even more drama to a rosy sky like this.

Vertical, full reflection - The same picture, just with the camera vertical to get the full reflection.

What a color! - This is the result of zooming in on a distant angler during sunrise on a very misty morning. When the sun cleared the horizon is blazed this extremely orange light through the mist and created this fantastic scene where sky and ocean blends so smoothly.
What a color!
