Catching an Oystercatcher


I caught an oystercatcher - or maybe it caught me. We found each other in Tysfjord in Nordland in the northern part of Norway.

Hi Rune, hvordan står det til? Takk for besøk. Jeg har aldri vaert i Tysfjord, men jeg synes at det er meget vakkert.
English now: In 1953 we had the flood in Zeeland, but also in Belgium and parts of England. I was called to help cleaning houses in Zierikzee. There were students from all over the world. Some of them became lifelong friends. One of them celebrated her 80th birthday a few weeks ago. Next week I shall send a post about her.
She is an artist.
Well Rune, ha det bra!

Nice ... and you got the reflection too. It's small scale adds to the grandiose nature of the scenery.

James said...

This really is a beautiful shot. The scenery and the reflections are wonderful.

being caught can be especially "good" sometimes and this is one of those times!

That's just about perfect composition, isn't it? The bird and his reflection get the foreground and left half, the dramatic mountains the right half and distance. And interesting light, especially at top and bottom. That's a VERY fine photo, Rune.

Fantastisk lys og farger. Jeg liker spesielt perspektivet med den relativ lille tjelden i det mektige landskapet. Vedlig bra!

You are so lucky to live in such sublime surroundings and we are lucky that you can capture its beauty for us !
