Green Pastures

One of the simplest landscapes I've done, I did some light retouching of the highlights with HDR and digital blending with the Thumb Rule to get rid of the Flare. Usually I don't shoot with so much sunlight but made for some real lush, summer feelings.
This is on the Island Haramsøya and another reason that I've fallen in love with this little island, on the top it is quite flat and provides several farmlands for the farmers. and around the corner from here I saw the largest Sea Eagle Ive seen now and was about 7 meters away when it took off, and wish I could have caught a decent capture or silhouette of it to include in the landscape of the islands' cliffs.
I considered desaturating the colors in this piece since they are so strong and vibrant that they almost look fake, and I don't like making regular landscapes to look fake, but Ill let it be as a statement to the power of sunlight. On the left side if you look very closely you can see the open ocean which never cease to wonder me.
