detailsTaken last spring in Lofoten. Lofoten is an archipelago located at the 68th and 69th parallels north of the Arctic Circle in North Norway.

I finished shooting on the beach. Then I noticed the beautiful pink - violet light over the snow-capped mountains. Started to look for an interesting foreground but there was nothing - only a big area of very deep snow. I had no snowshoes or skis, so walked very slowly, sinking into the deep snow. Finally, when I reached the beautiful grasses on top of a small hill - became dark.
The beauty of those mountains and stunning silence acted as a narcotic, I lost sense of time. Only text message from friends brought me back to reality - "Are you OK? We are waiting in the car".

Thank you very much! Fortunately it was quite "warm" evening - only about 0 Celsius degrees :)

Dear Pblinkers,
Thanks a lot for your participation on the Dusk theme contest. Only 5 entries (I have included the Graham's one too) is not a big number compared to previous contests but I am very pleased and satisfied with quality of the posts.

All the photos have their own charm, beauty, technical vales depicting the mood of dusk. Finally, in spite of a small dilemma between Graham's and Anna's entries, I eventually give my vote to Anna Franek and her majestic winter "Dusk" taken in Lofoten village in Northern Norway. This moody picture has everything to be elected the winner as light, texture, clarity and bags of mood. So, Anna I would like to congratulate you on the win by handing you the flag for the next theme contest.
Thanks everyone again and cheers!

Thank you very much! Deeply appreciate your difficult choice and I feel very honoured.
I loved the theme - dusk is so special time in the landscape photography...
I will propose the next theme soon.
