A lot of great personal memories are shown in this autumn image from Norway.
The day before the first snow fell on the highest peaks. The clear and cold sunrise that followed the next morning was beautiful!

D810 with Nikkor 14-24, f/11, 1/13 s, ISO 64, 14 mm.

Please list any pertinent technical details or techniques:

Beautiful image; especially the lighting. It does appear to need some counterclockwise rotation?

Thank you @Jim_Gavin! Not sure about that as all the tops are ligned up in the reflections right now?

Wow. This is impressive. I don’t have much experience with focus stacking but did you really need to do that when shooting at 14mm?

Thanks Igor! When things get close enough to the lens you still have to stack for maximum sharpness. The stack is only for that rock there in the fg. I had my lens really close to it.

Haha, thank you Josh!

The word that comes to mind is exquisite, something so refined and elegant. Colors are wonderful, as are the light and comp.
