Helt fabelaktig John, og når du skriver hvordan bildene er tatt kan jeg nå faktisk lære litt av dine ferdigheter også, toppers mann!! problemet her er tid... er på jobb om dagen, og drømmer meg til mitt Nikon... helt besatt for tiden, og skulle helst prøvd ut alt på en gang!! utålmodig dame vet du, men kanskje en dag får jeg et bilnkskudd jeg også, blinkskudd som hele din blogg består av.

Ha en fin fin kveld du og L

Det finns foton där man är väldigt glad att färgfotografierna blev uppfunna. Dessa hör till dem. Härliga färger. Du har jobbat mycket med dessa. Det syns. Vi har Venus också så klar och fin med.

Ivar Ivrig said...

Kjempe. Herlig å se den duse gode overgangen mellom fargene.

Anne-Sophie said...

Alltid noe flott å se på når du legger ut bilder! Og noe å lære av. Skjønne farger, spesielt godt liker jeg det første.

Randi said...

Vakkert som alltid John...virkelig ett bra skup.;-)

Litt overrasket over at det ikke er større forskjell på 30 og 13 sekunder.

Ida said...

Det er en fryd å komme innom her, hver eneste gang.

Gorgeous shots, John!!

Mojo said...

These are exceptional! How did you manage to keep the color so true in the first one with a 30 second exposure?

Truly remarkable. And thanks for sharing the exposure data!

VALKYRIEN said...

Veldig vakre bilder! Rent malerisk!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

You're an inspiration, John. Night photography is still a mystery to me, something I want to tackle soon. These are like magic.

bowledover said...

Wonderful pictures. Great work. Thank you.

imac said...

Wonderful shots and a great post John.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Post card perfect

Tranquility said...

Very pretty. I love that lighting - dark enough to bring out the city lights, but light enough to be so colorful!

Fio said...

It's a kind of magic!!!

ASSA said...

Du har så nydelige bilder! Har beundret dem lenge.
Nå har jeg lagt deg til som favoritt på min blogg, så jeg kan kikke innom enda oftere for å hvile øynene på noe godt.
Takk skal du ha for at deler dine bilder med oss!

Denise said...

Awesome visuals, the most breathtaking scenery. Thank you also for sharing your shutter speeds, as a novice photographer I am always interested in such things and trying to learn as I go along.

Mary said...

Gorgeous shots! You have such wide open vistas and beautiful scenery. Have a great weekend, John. :)

Marka said...

Beautiful photos and excellent colors! Thanks for sharing such great photographs!

Louise said...

These are both incredible photos. I especially like the ground in the foreground.

Light and Voices said...

A camera in your hand becomes magical. I loved how the atmosphere had circles going on. I like how image has a mood and excellent tonal quality. Superior is the key word for your photographs.

Salvia said...

So wonderful!Thank you so much!

Linnea W said...

Wow! Absolutely amazing...just stunning scenes and so well photographed!

Hilda said...

John, these are both stunning! I'm speechless — and that doesn't happen often.

Happy Sky Watching!

raf said...

Marvelous time exposures, John!

Esther Garvi said...

Hej John! Försökte kommentera igår kväll men kom inte igenom. Fantastiskt vackra bilder som får tiden att stå still. Kan bara föreställa mig hur det var att stå där i verkligheten och se det i "image format"... :-)

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

Wow! The first one looks like a painting. Just beautiful.

Daryl said...

Its surreal ... as if I am looking at a planet other than this one

Heather said...

These photos are spectacular! I have a question, though. With such long exposures, how is it that the moon and that one star don't show any movement? The few times that I have taken photos of a night sky, I get star trails and a blurry moon if I leave the shutter open for more than a few seconds.

Reader Wil said...

Very impressive and great photos, John.

MaineBirder said...

Breath-taking photos! Fine work!

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Wonderful night shots with are often so difficult.

Babooshka said...

No shot is too difficult for you. More magic weaved with these beauties.
