Artist's Description

Larvikite occurs only in the Oslo-rift. It originally crystallised at a depth of 3 to 4 km below the earth’s surface. The rock is typically pale or dark grey in colour and is composed mainly of feldspar. The characteristic blue sheen seen in reflected light, is caused by slight difference in composition and layering of the feldspar crystals. Larvikite is an exclusive building stone used all over the world. In London the ground floor of Harrods is laid with larvikite also used as a facing stone on numerous other buildings.

The rock on this island was carved by the heavy glaciers during the ice age and created a magnificent landscape. You will find many of my seascape captures from this place.

This is a photo very similar to one I posted last year. As you might discover I have used a different processing this time and that together with the slightly different angle and composition made me post this view again. I can not quite make up my mind which version I like most but I believe I like the composition better on this one.
