Det finns en tydlig orsak varför jag alltid öppnar just denna blog först av alla. Den orsaken är bilderna i denna blog. Vackrare kan jag inte tänka mig. Den sista bilden här tar andan ur mej.

I am so glad I stopped by. Beautiful pictures but the reflection in the ball is my favourite.

Arija said...

All great photos, but that panorama takes the cake! What an incredible sky!!!

Ms. Hays said...

Very beautiful colors!

Rose said...

these are all spectacular! Not sure, but think I like the one with the reflection best. But ask me tomorrow, and I would probably choose another one.

Sue said...

Beautiful pics! I took some of a silver ball like yours on a building during a sunrise. They didn't turn out the best, but you have made me want to go back at different times of the day and take some more. (This was the first time I used my new camera, too.)

If you get a chance, here's a link to pic with the ball in it that I posted on my other blog:

starnitesky said...

Amazing colours. Beautiful!

Ferreira-Pinto said...

I like all of them, and found quite interesting the sphere.
Didn't you alreday use it (or a similar one) for other great photos?

The panorama photo is just great too.

chrome3d said...

Just when I thought that it wouldn´t get any better then there was this panorama that was really going over the top in spectacular way.

alicesg said...

Sorry for the late visit. The photo for SWF is so beautiful. I love the reflection on the shiny ball. It looked like it captured the whole scenery in it. Very lovely.
