Travelers Tips and Stories about Fjord

My problem with posing (when I do it - just like in this photo) is that I kinda get lost, looking at the horizon. What the lens did not capture (shame really because it would have made an excellent b-roll) is me rolling a cigarette and enjoying the next 15’, taking in all this beauty. Today actually, someone told me that this kind of scenery / location / weather might be depressing. I don’t take depression lightly, since I had a quick “brush” with that monster myself. Nevertheless, I like to see the diversity in experience people have when looking at my pictures. I was happy in this one btw…
I’d had a pensive couple of days with some moments of high emotion. I’d decided a day ago that I ought to take a moment for myself, one that will hopefully remind me how fortunate I am regardless of anything else going on in life. I didn’t anticipte that this sunrise to be quite so soul-stirring as it was. And I certainly didn’t expect to have it entirely to myself. It felt ethereal and magic and left me shook up in an unsettled but wondrous way for the remainder of the day.
