Beacon of Ulla

The 15th of May I went out to Haramsøya and Flemsøya to Take a boatload of photos and camp, though there was very little of the later, it was a great occasion to practice focus-stacking and in this Panorama I tried to different ways of blending exposures to make HDRs for the panorama. the versions where I only used 2 exposures I preferred a lot more as the contrast was preserved and the colors more true.
I had been here before and taken photos of the lighthouse of Ulla before but did not find them atheistically pleasing. So This trip I also wanted to give this location a bit more justice. Though not the most beautiful of the area still shines bright and provides security to the ships out at sea. The beauty of this lighthouse is the simplicity and therefore when in close view the simplicity of it is hidden. So I explored the rock of which it stands on and found the angle and view I felt gave it the most justice.
Though not the most spectacular Lighthouse, for those on the archipelago of Haram Kommune and possibly the people of Finnøya Kommune this lighthouse brings memories, nostalgia, feeling of home, and pride.
Hope you like this one, I used a darker and moody editing style a bit different for me, but helped the colors and simple things stand out a bit more and not get lost in all the small textures.
