It's almost too perfect !

zzzzzzzzzz.png

Looks like a trail camera that shoots video has been used to me then frames downloaded  and stiched together and Photoshop or other editing software used to complete the picture. Its just to perfect. Perfectly framed, ( I know that can be cropped )  Flat calm lake, blue sky. Fluffy clouds  Sun burst over right wing,   But what do i know ,

Thanks Russell.  Only on my mobile so couldn't get all the information.  Would love to have the picture details and story behind it.

Had a search for info about the pic and found this brief description in a press release put out by the organisers of the competition...

This year’s Grand Prize image, titled “Black Grouse Showing Off” by photographer Audun Rikardsen of Tromsø, Norway, provides a glimpse at the showy display of a black grouse looking to impress female birds from atop his coastal lookout. Rikardsen spent three years preparing for the shot, and while his original goal was to photograph majestic golden eagles, it was a happy coincidence that this charismatic grouse frequently returned and became comfortable in front of the camera. Rikardsen, who grew up in a small Norwegian fishing community, draws inspiration from his lifelong fascination with the Artic’s rugged landscape and wildlife.

It's a bit like looking into another world? Beautifully surreal. The colours, light, texture, movement.  It's better than eyesight, and that's a difficult concept to grasp. You think that the human eye captures the raw essence of everything it sees, but when you look at those photos...it's a whole new dimension isn't it.  Clever, clever guy.  So glad to have had the opportunity to see them.

Wow, fantastic photos 👍 As a coincidence, we have been looking at going to Norway, the Loften Isles, as we know a few people who have been. Might have to look a bit harder now 👍

My brother went to the Lofoten islands some years back and loved the scenery and mountain climbing there. I’m sure you’d really enjoy it.

Thanks. It only needed me to shuffle about a little bit - a couple of metres to the left - to get it how you see it. Otherwise it was almost perfectly framed as soon as I saw it. 

The only challenge was in balancing an open brolly between my left arm and shoulder while trying to get the pic with my trusty iPhone 5! 🤣
