Great shot. It is heartening to see that the trees have not been taken away because of their age.

Det här var väl en viktig marin bas i Norge. Har aldrig varit på fästningen. Vackert foto i svart vitt som passar in i den gamla miljön.

Oi, så morsomt! Ser du har tatt turen til Stavern i helgen, der er det flott, ta deg en tur på sommeren også da er det virkelig liv der. Fikk dere vært innom Mølen også? Uansett var dette ett nydelig bilde som vanlig :)

Looks a very interesting place,
I love the part cobbled pathway....

RuneE said...

Der gav du meg en ide - nesten på en prikk make til inngangen til Bergenhus. Bra!

Kostas said...

Splendid monochrom photo. Impressive subject!

Sandra Rocha said...

Fantastic, p&b, a beatiful picture.
I like very much.

Ida said...

Flott perspektiv!
Skygger, slike som på bildet ditt her blir ekstra fine i sort/hvit versjon.
Veldig fint! :)

Rune said...

Flott bilde John :) Likte det godt i s/h, det kom mer til sin rett. Vært nedenfor i dag dere også eller?

Mari said...

I love all the texture in this picture. Great job as usual!

Babooshka said...

This is very clever with the walkers you can see through the opne door.

Wonderful detail, shapes and light. All the things for a great B&W.

Dot O said...

Beautiful photo. I do love black and white. There is just so much texture in this photograph.

History is good to have around.

I like the timing of this shot John especially with those shadows creeping into the image

Arija said...

There you go again John, just beautiful!

Ferreira-Pinto said...

Just seeing the pathway is enough to know it's an interesting and full of history place!

Catherine said...

The paved pathway attracted my attention immediately. Timeless.

Daryl said...

Timelessly lovely.. the mood is so very romantic

Excellent photography, John!
An ideal subject for B/W, perfectly executed.

Cheers, Klaus

Lovely textures and shadows in this picture. A very atmospheric photo. It really 'sucks' you in.

Rune said...

Ja, jeg tenkte nesten det etterhvert da jeg så bildene deres kom ut. Ustanselog med motiver der nede :) Var på Mølen på søndag til solen var nede, det ble en flott ettermiddag med herlig lys.

Rune said...

Takker :) Ja, det hadde vært artig å sett det i tåke også. Svarten kaller de den store steinen på Mølen. Må nok ned en tur igjen snart, var bart og fint der nå. Har smeltet raskt siste tiden.

Dragonstar said...

The contrasts are wonderful. I can feel myself walking into the picture - just the sort of thing I'd like on my wall!

vincibene said...

Wonderful play with light and shadow. And I like the paving stones.

Truly exceptional work on this! Magnificent tonal range.
