A couple of winter pictures

The images are taken right after sunset.

Lovely pristine winterscapes. John your photofaphic eye and skill never cease to amaze me. Art historians could wax lyrical about the compositions, how you have achieved the 'Golden Mean' in the second, and balaced out the central division by stark contrasts in the two halves.
Keep weaving your magic!

Nice work, John.. very, very different than where I currently live, but I always enjoy snow scenes, either in photographs or paintings.
These in particular remind me of where I grew up in New England and I love those pristine fields of snow without even a single footprint to disturb them. You can feel the cold and the peacefulness. Snow can be a difficult subject for photographers, but I suppose you get plenty of practice!

Nydelig urørt landskap! Det kan se ut som om vi ikke har vært så langt unna hverandre i motivet her i Skoger (?) :)

Det var ganske tomt i 4a på Magasinet ja, hehe.

Love how you compose your photos! I also love the fact that no footprints have marred this snow - it is perfect!

Hei John
Kameraet er nå fikset...har man en handymann så har man det...han bestilte ett swab sett over nett, etter at det var håpløst å få tak i på butikkene her i distriktet.

Leste alt vi kom over på nett ang pussing såg videoer osv. Så i går satte han igang...jeg var bare litt bekymret..:-)Tok flere test bilder og det ser bra ut. Skal ut og virkelig få testet det mot klar himmel i dag.

Takk for hjelpen enda en gang..uten din hjelp hadde jeg måtte levert det inn.

Ha en fin,fin dag der dere er.

Beautiful, as always! You make me long for my skies! Which I left in Sweden, of course...

Vilket underbart orört landskap. Känns i magen när man ser på bilden!
Tack för tips om bilder på bloggen, bussigt av dej, har dock inte hunnit testa ännu. Ha det!

Peaceful, beautiful, and pure! Fredfylt, vakkert og rent.
Men jeg flytter ikke hjem til Norge i år likevel, men bildene dine vekker minner fra den gangen du hadde skisporene bak deg....
