Bland skies and generally crappy weather were frequent features of this year's trip up north.
Tranøy in Hamarøy is a favourite location of mine, as you can probably see from my photostream. The combination of mountains, shore line, islands and interesting details lets me always find something I find interesting.

The resulting color shot was bland and flat, but I've tried to bring in some interest in the skies and foreground with a LR B&W conversion, starting with a Yellow B&W filter conversion then working with linear exposure grads and some dodge and burn brushes to bring out contrast.

Canon EOS 7D, Tokina 12-24 f/4@1/100sec,+1/3EV, f/11, 12mm, ISO200D+. Polarizer.
