The Norwegian countryside is something truly amazing to experience. Towering mountains, beautiful fjords and over 450,000 lakes to enjoy make the landscape a photographers dream. On top of this, the golden hours of light are much longer than in many other places due to the longitude of the country.

It is funny that, regardless of how hard landscape photographers struggle to keep everything in focus, sometimes a lack of focus can add so much drama and impact to an image.
This gentle wildflower in Zion Canyon is a great case in point. With careful composition, an in focus background camera may have caused the image to look cluttered, thus reducing it’s uniqueness. Instead, by using a shallow depth of field, we have an elegant and simple photo that exhibits a fragile beauty among the mighty canyons.
