Vakre bilder John, som vanlig.
Og jeg er beæret over å være den første til å kommentere.

Jeg undret over om dette var tidlig en morgen, eller sent en kveld ?

Klem herfra.

wow john, these are wonderful. I am particularly nuts about the closeup of the lighthouse, and the rusty metal ring standing up in the sky.... brilliant.

Petunia said...

Oj, dette var virelig flott:) Er dette en badeplass eller er det yttaskjærs som vi sier her? Det var virkelig nydelig der!
Et SWF innlegg du virkelig kan være stolt av!

Berit said...

Utrolig flott plass, og den fargen det var på bergene den var nydelig, er det lyset eller er de sånn?

Great shot for Sky Watch! We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made or only just happened... mine's up too hope you can drop by. Happy SWF!

Beautiful photos, everyone. My favorite is the 4th one, with the beautiful, cracked rocks, the lighthouse and one billowing cloud rising above the right edge of the rocks. Lovely!!

babooshka said...

John, "Louis" thank you for your visit Wednesday. "Louis" is always impressed with your fine photos here. Each visit is a pleasure!

For Sky Watch over at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo, we have a dance between the moon and the fog at midnight.

These are all so wonderful...each and every one is an amazing photo.

And I want to thank you once again for telling me who the music was by--even though I now have it in my music, every time I come here it gives me joy to hear it.

Some landscapes of wonder. The shines of the water are magnificent.
I love the photo of the ring against the sky.

What a beautiful series of photos!

Garden Angel said...

Ja det kan jeg nok tenke meg...hehe
Hadde nok vært litt nysgjerrig jeg også, om mannen skulle finne på å få seg en blogg:)

Du jeg er nok en smule sjenert...så den hojinga er ikke helt meg..flire
Du synes vel at du ser meg;) Komme svevende nedover trappa med ørti bæreposer og helt kokt i fjeset....hoje: " Lene og Jooohn"...Det hadde nok vært et syn:))
Spørs om ikke dere hadde hatt et merkelig bilde av meg etterpå da;)
(Litt sånn fru Pigalopp aktig)

Det var egentlig like før vi gikk på hverandre...
For egentlig hadde jeg tenkt å gå ned trappa andre veien..
Men siden jeg bar på så mye, snek jeg meg heller ned der det ikke var så mye folk:)

Tusen takk og god helg til dere også kjære "naboer"! Kos dere!

Her har du virkelig litt av en samling! Spesielt det triple HDR-bildet var imponerende. Har aldri prøvd meg på det, men kanskje en gang?

WOW! Wonderful photos! Just great catch!

Horsoon said...

Awesome HDR works, John!
I especially like the 7th pic, which the 'ring' makes it very dramatic.

CrazyCath said...

Fantastic skies again. My favourite has to be the ring stood up. (Triple exp). Very moody. Framed well. Very expressive.

Dewdrop said...

John, Once again, you have blown me away with your outstanding compsotion. I am impressed with your eye. Great shots. Beautiful.
