Everything about this night seemed to be about contrasts. The night was warm and calm but the thunderstorm was violent and intense. It was quiet except for the distant sounds of thunder rolling over me every 30 seconds. It was beautiful and scary. But luckily I could watch it from a distance. At 23.22 you could still see traces of the sunset as it coloured the sky orange behind the storm clouds.
That, too, was a contrast to the purple lightning colour. It rained heavily in the thunderstorm but where I stood I had a starry sky above me. It seemed all those contrasts collided right there and then. I had been waiting for this moment. I didn’t know when it would come but I was constantly ready for it.
The intense thunderstorm really delivered from a photographer’s point of view. I pointed my camera alternately to the west (like on this photo) and the north and got a lightning on most of my exposures. I loved how they reflected in the calm sea water. I headed home after an hour and felt very happy that I finally got the kind of lightning photos that I had hoped to capture.
The complete story comes only with the Deluxe version so you can learn everything about it and be able to tell the story to anyone who sees it on your wall.
WHAT DOES “STANDARD” AND “DELUXE” MEAN?
The STANDARD photos are available in two sizes (choose from the Select menu) and are printed on standard high quality photo paper (matte or glossy depending on what suites the photo best). They are signed on the back side. Standard photos are not numbered and do not come with a Certificate of Authenticity or the Full Story (see the Deluxe photo info below).
The DELUXE photos are available in two sizes (choose from the Select menu) and are printed on High Quality Fine Art Paper. They are signed on the front side and numbered as well as signed on the backside. With the Deluxe photo comes a Certificate of Authenticity which proves that the number is authentic and made by me. A signed and numbered artwork is always an investment. Deluxe photos are delivered in a tube inside a box. They should be opened very carefully to prevent the photo to be damaged.
STANDARD + POSTCARD SET is a 300x200 mm (11.8”x7.8”) photo plus a set of 6 Northern Lights postcards (3 different cards x 2).
All photos in the Nordic Landscape webshop are taken by me.
