Hi there :wave:

First off, I absolutely love the title you chose for this work of art, it immediately drew my attention and made me click on the thumbnail.
This shot is amazing, some might argue that it is a bit too dark, or that there isn't a very sharp focus, but I don't think so, the focus is very subtle, it's on the trees which adds so much power to the photo, yet the water and it's color adds a great deal of strength to the ambiance as well. The fog/mist is simply perfect but what I love the most is that we can notice the shadows of more trees behind the trees in focus, and those trees are lost in the mist and it is so freaking magical.

Great work :heart:
What do you think?

Norway is such a beautiful country. I wish I could live there, but Im stuck in the middle of Europe. Anyway, its a beautiful picture. Very expressive and gives the impression, that this forest is kind of enchanted.

Where in Europe do you live? Norway is nice, but really cold at winter time, hehe. :P A bit too cold, in my opinion. Thank you so much :heart:

I live in the Orkney islands in the north of Scotland, we were Norwegian once a long time ago, ye ive been to Norway once before and it was beautiful, We drove from Karlskrona in Sweden to Stavanger where we got the ferry back to Britain. I want to go back one day and also learn the language. Where in Norway do you live if you don't mind me asking?

There is a nice mood in this pic. The colours are also facinating. It kind of looks like an album cover you'd find on an Opeth CD.
