Nydelig nydelig..., og fikk du snakket med rådmannen i kommunen om honorar ang. Drammensreklame...

Jeg for min del hadde aldri trodd det var så vakkert der :-)

Fin helg til deg.

RuneE said...

I didn't know that the Drammen river could be that beautiful! Excellent!

En dag skal jeg til Drammen å fotografere. det kan jeg love her og nu. Men da skal det være nydelig vær med himmelsk solnedgang slik som her!

Utrolig vakre bilder fra deg i dag og. Syns nesten jeg skriver det samme hver gang. Men jeg mener hvert et ord:)

Ha en koselig SWF-kveld og natt. En riktig koselig helg også:)

pretty much the sequence of photos with magnificent colors

Petunia said...

Åh, så fine bilder. Vakkert:) Skal aldri mer si at det er bedre med en dram i timen enn en en time....
Ha en flott helg!

I like the angle of the first photo, off the path, better than the second photo. Personal preference, since both are great. The dark blue color of the sky in the 3rd photo is outstanding.

The sunsets are outstanding with my preference being the 3rd sunset. I like the colors on the bottoms of the clouds in the 3rd.

Really nice job on all of them.

It's always a pleasure to view your work.

Have a great weekend,
Troy

me and my camera said...

Oh wow, those sunsets are so amazing! I like the first one best, I've never been able to achieve a colour scheme like that.

Cheers,

Scotty Graham said...

very nice photos!!

evlahos said...

amazing views and great skies. and a contrast between the blue and relaxing river and red and dramatic sky. well done

RuneE said...

Meg igjen: Du har selvfølgelig helt rett. Antennen står på toppen av et vanntårn og er formodentlig for kommunikasjon/fjernstyring til kommunens tekniske etat (Derav tittelen - de fleste har tatt det for en UHF-antenne).

cocabixinhos said...

This is quality photografy!
Always beautiful.

babooshka said...

You never fail to deliver. Stunningly beautiful as always.

Wow! I love the sunset pictures. Especially the last one. thank you for sharing these.

Horsoon said...

Love your wide angle lens for the Drammen River shot! Beautiful.

Tyra said...

Hei, John! Fant sida di gjennom din bedre halvdel. Jeg har alltid sagt at Drammen kun er vakker by night sett når man kommer nedover Lier-bakkene en mørk kveld. Jeg tar det tilbake. Nå. Med en gang!
Jeg skjønner at for en som bare stort sett har vært på gjennomreise, på travbanen eller trålet Midtbygda i Røyken som barn, er Drammen mer enn det. Mye mer. Jeg bøyer meg i støvet for alle de vakre bildene du tar!
Håper du får en fortsatt flott helg!
Ps!Stikk gjerne innom min venns blogg, han er helt fersk i denne bloggverden og syntes bildene dine også er flotte. Han er også veldig glad i å fotografere. Link på sida mi. Hilsen fra Cathrine.

KOSTAS said...

Six very beautiful skies, each photograph and a work of art! Marvellous work!!

Max-e said...

Great shots for SWF.

archiearchive said...

As always, I am totally blown away with your skies. Great photography for SWF

Willard said...

Stunning skywatch photos! I like your post on the castle as well and will return when I have more time to look at them at length. Great photography!

CrazyCath said...

That first sunset is gorgeous - looks like the sky is on fire.

I took one of these only once - sadly it is badly out of focus :(
So I do appreciate the skill in this. It is not just a point and click... (there are so many points in the sky to focus on, I picked the wrong point and it is out of focus.) BUT - I have a better camera now.... :)

Neva said...

John, your photos are absolutely breathtaking....stunning...you certainly live in a place that the blues in the sky are amazing....The sunset is unbelievable.....nice job on getting these...I am duly impressed.

Craver Vii said...

Spectacular, vivid colors by day, and awesome fiery skies at night!

Oh, and that water looks very inviting. I'd love to kick the shoes off and go wading through that. Is it very cold?
