My Rainbow Fairytale by da-phil My Rainbow Fairytale by da-phil
Ok, I continue posting pictures from Northern Norway...
This panorama (6 single shots) was captured at Moskenes on the Lofoten Island Moskenesøy in Norway. It was the perfect reward for a very shaky 5h ride from Bodø to Moskenes with the night-ferry. Normally I'm not very prone to seasickness but this ride was just sick, I was really close to vomiting. I also struggled to not make a mess while having a very shaky pee.... the most shaky pee in my life :P
After I arrived @ 5:30am, I needed some additional sleep, I didn't sleep very well at the ferry...
At 10am I started exploring the area and finally went on a hike to the Munkebu hut. This picture was captured shortly before I wanted to start the hike. I'd say that I was really lucky with this rainbow, I saw plenty of rainbows in Norway (due to change of weather all the time) but this was the most intense rainbow I ever saw. I was not beliving my eyes after taking the first panorama from this location as there was suddenly a hint of a rainbow, only 5 minutes later there was this mighty double-rainbow... I was shocked by the beauty of it...
To visualize it to you guys, check out this video: [link]
This was pretty much how I felt :P

What an amazing view! "Fairytale" is really the best way to describe this picturesque landscape. My Rainbow Fairytale by *da-phil ( Suggested by GraphiteColours and Featured by trevg )
:iconwickedsenses:
Wow, this is simply wonderous, to say the least! The lighting definitely adds to the imagery, due to the fact parts of those rolling hills are shaded, and the rest are brightened by the sunlight. I love the fact that all those houses are visible in the shot, aiding the beauty to this. To top it off, those rainbows certainly claim most of the attention. I'm simply amazed that you captured the full ark of the rainbow, which left me trying to find which buildings the ends landed on! For vision, you earned five stars from me, because of the simply gorgeous views and the blur-less setting. The originality is also five stars, because of the place you chose to photograph. For technique, you get another five stars, for the unique way the picture is taken. Finally, the impact is another five stars, because I was close to being speechless at this! Great job!
What do you think?

Even though I've never been to Lofoten before, I recognized the scene instantly. The image has that typical feel to it that shots from that place usually have. Only a lot stronger. It's a stunning photo, and the way you captured the beautiful scenery and atmosphere of the place together with a full rainbow is really amazing. If I didn't already want to visit Lofoten, this would've made me want it in an instant.
