Just blue

This is lake Mjøsa as seen from the Hedmark museum in Hamar, Norway on May 1 this year.  I almost feel as if I have to apologize for the boring postcard motif with the horizon in the middle. But the reason I value this photo is that (except for a bit of foreground) it only consists of different shades of blue. And that due to the slight fog the horizon almost looks as if it was painted and not photographed.

Shot with the 35mm Summicron on the Leica M8.2 at ISO 160. Except for the removal of some sensor dust spots and a minimal white balance adjustment the photo wasn't modified in any way and it wasn't cropped either. Posted while I'm in Norway again - Volda this time.
