It has been a while since I've done any landscape photography now. But last week I drove across Haukeli along route E134. I took the opportunity to stop and take a few shots. The weather was nice. About 25°C even at 1000 meters above sea level. Just a slight breeze. It was quiet and peaceful.
Outside the office where I work we have a magnolia tree. I've always found it a bit difficult to get a good shot of it. Over the past few years I have tried several times, but that image always seems to elude me. Hence a single flower yet again.
Some skills are like riding a bike. Once you have mastered it, you will be able to pick it up again even after a long break. Other skills require that you practice them on a regular basis to be able to perform at a certain level, like playing an instrument or speak a foreign language. For me photography is in the latter category; it takes some practice to get back into the grove again.
