I was on the ferry from Flåm to Gudvangen, Norway when I passed the village Aurland. This village was just a short distance away from the village of Flam where we stayed for a few days enjoying the waterfalls, history and beer! The ferry ride takes you to the UNESCO world Heritage site of Nærøyfjord, the world’s narrowest fjord. It was a beautiful ride with awesome scenery!
To get the exposure correct on a day and landscape like this, I used graduated neutral density filter. The filter allowed me to capture the clouds and landscape and not over expose the clouds.

This is beautiful! Makes me wanna be there.
Breathtaking image. I love the sense of scale. The tiny colorful village works so well in contrast to the large looming mountains and clouds! Kudos!
The vision of the village seems surreal, as if you would be flying in on the wings of a dragon.
