The winning image in our "Colorful" photo contest
By bjolester in Photo Contests on Dec 6, 2015
First of all, I want to thank all of you that voted for my photo in the October 2015 competition. I am very proud that my photo excelled in competition with so many great photos!
On Sunday October 11 I had planned to get up very early and go for a photo hike around the Trondheim area, near where I live. The sun rose at about 0900 this morning, and when I got up at about 0530, I could see that there was mist/fog covering most of the Trondheimsfjord. In fact, the misty conditions were so severe that the airport at Værnes closed down during Sunday, and also the following Monday. After having had breakfast, I packed my photo equipment in my Saab and drove off towards Trondheim.
I initially planned to take some photos of the wharves by the Nidelven in the centre of Trondheim, and here the conditions were very misty, dark and gloomy. Afterwards I drove up to the large lake Jonsvatnet, which besides being a very beautiful lake, is the main reservoir for drinking water for the people of Trondheim. At Jonsvatnet I found a nice spot to take some photos, and I unpacked and set up my photo gear, and waited – hoping for the sun to start shining through the fog. After having waited half an hour or so, there was some movement in the fog and indeed the sunrays started to penetrate the fog. At this moment I took a series of shots including the one I submitted for this competition.
