    This photo was taken in wintertime after sunset in Norway. I was kayaking in the evening in the area where Aurlandsfjord meets Nærøyfjord. I waited until the water got completely calm at about 20 minutes after sunset. I saw through my gopro app on my phone that the gopro was using exposure of 1/30 sec due to the low light. I had to keep absolutely still while gliding slowly in the water to get a good photo without blur. The paddle back to the car took over an hour in darkness with a headlamp.
