I can't say more but "wow"!

Pernille said...

Stunning photos from you today!

Alldeles helt nydelig, John! Du har et virkelig øye for foto! Nesten umulig å plukke ut en favoritt her. Men det første tok nesten pusten fra meg. Så tøft, fantastisk komposisjon, så perfekt, så stilig osv. Og så kom jeg til neste bilde. Himmel og hav sier jeg bare. Turte nesten ikke å titte på det siste bildet, men så måtte jeg bare. Fantastisk!

Gleder meg til de neste bildene:)

John there all beautiful but i really like that first one, the silhouette of the people against that sky shot is just amazing

T and S said...

John : This is fantastic, the first silhouette is just too good

RuneE said...

Det første bildet får meg til å tenke på folk som går på en bre Nydelige reflekser i det andre. Synd du ikke kunne sette deg litt lengre ned :-)

Dragonstar said...

These are wonderful! I love the different lines in the third one, and the beautiful reflection in the second. But that first one, with all the silhouettes - that one's special!

Sandradb said...

Beautiful and original! I really like this SkyWatch post!

Aileni said...

That first photo is, to use a possibly overused term, 'iconic'.
It really is quite brilliant.
I assume 'iconic' means, in this case. what photography is all about.

These are my favorites for this week. I always feel like I could walk right into your photos, they're so immediate and accessible. Have a great weekend.

Very nice evening atmosphere. People look so funny as they are so scattered around and doing nothing particular.

Three great perspectives on the sky! I agree with several others that the silhouettes add to the beauty of the sky.

Flotte bilder fra operabygget. Fint lys og gode komposisjoner. Fin silhuett på bilde nr 1. Må nok ta den lange veien og besøke det byggverket en dag jeg også. Flotte bilder!

Fine kontraster i det første bildet. Nydelige refleksjoner i det andre og stilig med lysstripene i det tredje..!

John you continue to produce the most fantastic works of art I have ever had the privilege to view. The first shot especially reminds me of Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
