Goregous Christmas scenes in the night light! Adore the first reflections in the water. Seems to add a special extra touch of magic!

Hallo John,
I just stopped on Rune`s blog and now I found the second shot with wonderful lights and reflections from Drammen.
I think Drammen is a special place for this "stemninger". I have to stop next time to see Drammenselva.

Nice shots, John. I noticed your ISO is pretty high on these two shots. I'm still learning about this, but I always seem to get a little grainy when I take the ISO higher. How did you get your shots so clear? If you get a chance, I'd love for you to check out some of my night shots. I set my ISO to 1600, but I don't like the quality. Would love your feedback on this. Happy Holidays!!

Merry Christmas!!!

Så flotte julekort!!! Virkelig stemningsfullt!
Ikke mange av oss norske med på sky watch denne gangen. Vi er vel alt for opptatt med ribbe og pinnekjøtt.
Ha fortsatt en fin julehelg!

Hi John,

These are great photos, as always! Don't the cities look beautiful at night time? And the water improves the view even more.

I wish you a very blessed Christmas and a happy & safe New Year from Australia! Keep up the good work with your photography!
