Lots of nice photographs. I like most of them but some are more appealing to me. All nice photography.

SandyCarlson said...

A feast! In that first one, the sky looks molten!

me ann my camera said...

The first photo is my favourite with such a dark play of power and drama. But all are beautiful and enjoyable! The last photo with the moon gives great closure.

John: What an unbelievable show. Each one better then the last.

Pernille's ting og tang said...

Fantastisk vakre alle sammen! Men det første gikk rett inn i hjertet mitt:)

luiz ramos said...

Great colors, shots and beautiful Moon.

Sandpiper said...

Outstanding pictures! It looks like the sky is falling!

Anemone said...

Flott som vanlig John.
Men du må se og komme deg tidligere til sengs, ser jo ut som om det nesten er natt jo ? :-))

Skrev til din fru at jeg trodde du hadde mye brann/flammer på dine bilder denne uka. Og sannerlig ser det da ut som om himmelsen står i brann også.

Flott helg til dere to i Drammen.

RuneE said...

Sunsets galore!

(but the last was my favourite)

marcia said...

WOW,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,that was a feast

Voz do meu Coração said...

Magnificent the sequence of beautiful pictures, with colors and landscapes expactaculares. Congratulations.

GAWO said...

Mange fine bilder her. Og du har jo utsikt også, selv om jeg ser et tre eller to. Min utsikt hjemmefra krymper drastisk ned sommerstid.

Har du sett at jeg klarte å få til å utvide bloggen min og få inn noen store bilder. Takket være deg!! Tusen takk for fin hjelp og god forklaring.

bobbie said...

Louis la Vache said...

The Norwegian Division of Daily Photobloggers consistently puts up outstanding photos - this series being a fine example! "Louis" is always glad he stops by!

Your photos are always so amazing. I love them. that first one is spectacular...

Horsoon said...

It's amazing how the sky changes its colors. I like the moon best!

Andrea said...

WOW
Double WOW
Triple WOW
These are gorgeous.

Kathiesbirds said...

Wow, that's quite a series. Sure shows the ever changing sky, doesn't it? Good job!

archiearchive said...

I love the first one but they are all great shots.

Garden Angel said...

Kjære min tid så flott den himmelen var fra deres vinkel!!!
Litt misunnelig på den utsikten deres altså...hehe
Så stod dere der da,...så vakkert og fotograferte med hvert deres kamera i morgenkåpene....litt romantisk egentlig:)
Iallefall for oss foto interesserte..

Selv stod jeg nesten i vinduskarmen på kjøkkenet og fotograferte samme kvelden....og håpet at ingen av naboene trodde jeg knipset dem...hihi
Det var jo bare skjønne farger på himmelen!!!
Takker og...neier for koselig kommentar hos meg:)

Det ÈR flott hos dere John!!!
Resten vil vel alltids være igjen uansett, ikke sant?
Man blir aldri arbeidsledig som huseier!!
Vi bor selv i et gammelt tømmerhus fra 1914.
Og de siste årene har vi byttet ut endel tømmer som var dårlig...Ikke bare bare å bytte tømmer på et stort laftet hus..
Nå for tiden går det i å skrape og male huset..og egentlig har vi planer om å pusse opp hele stua i sommer....så får vi bare se da???
For sommeren går utrolig fort;)

Trodde dere var ute med egen båt jeg. Skjønner godt at du ønsker deg en...og ja...kanskje en som går lenger enn til skutebrygga...hehe
Med den strie strømmen som har vært i elva i det siste, så sliter småbåtene endel.
Kos dere videre i helgen da!
Hilsen meg(",)

Stacey Huston said...

Wow John, you really captured every angle of the sky with this post.. nice job.

Aileni said...

Gosh, John - an overwhelming selection of super shots. Very fine indeed.

Dragonstar said...

Such a collection of incredibly beautiful photos, and so many different moods. I never tire of enjoying the sky, and you live in a lovely part of the world.

Kay said...

These are very impressive photos! I'm in awe of your spectacular skies.

Kim said...

Wow, I love the ones where the sun pokes through, and I really like the wispy cloud ones, oh and I really like the moon. Maybe I just love them all :)

Garden Angel said...

Jammen lånebåt må jo være veldig greit det også da!
Og tja.....det var det med hage da:))
Hadde ikke klart meg uten det!
Men hvis man klarer seg like godt med noen krukker på balkongen så hadde det jo vært et fint alternativ....kanskje?

naturglede said...

Ubeskrivelig vakre bilder, som man kan se om og om igjen.He en flott helg:)

BeachysCapeCodCupboard said...

You have a stunning view! Thank you for posting such gorgeous photos!

Dina said...

With a non-stop light show like that, you must spend a lot of time on the terrace. I sure would.
The first picture looks like the sky is falling.

Willard said...

A stunning series of photographs. I especially like the ones where you utilize the trees and the buildings silhouetted against the sky as compositional elements!

Max-e said...

You have an amazing view from your home. Great shots

Katarina i Kullavik said...

So many nice pictures! Before I encountered Sky Watch Friday I never realized how much the colours of the sky change. It's really fascinating...

Just the most gorgeous evening shots I've seen! :D

Fugazi said...

Amazing - you really have some great pics of the sky here. Også litt på norsk - hvordan har du fått inn musikk på profilen din, jeg får det ikke til...er veldig takknemlig om du kan gi meg ett tips...
Hilsen Ellen

CrazyCath said...

Incredible, moody, emotive skies. I have some up here which I am incredibly proud of, but your first one knocks spots off them!

I just love your skies. I think it is partly the Norwegian sky but a large part is down to your skillful photography. Well done again. It gives me such pleasure to visit here.

Sherry said...

What an incredible set of photographs, all showing such variations in light and color in a -beautiful- sky. What a breathtaking view you have from your terrace and window!

Mustang Mike said...

That is remarkable. Such very unique shots all of the same sky and not one looks like the other. Love it! Thanks for sharing. Mustang Mike
