Den snøen på bildene dine gav av en eller annen grunn en "Syden"-fornemmelse. Kanskje det var de "palmene"? Hvilke trær er det? Uansett passet de veldig godt inn.

Bravo!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Again another beautiful set of photos, that palm definitely shows that the wind is blowing.

Rose said...

Oh, my, all are wonderful, but that last one is sure dramatic! I haven't posted my sky watch yet...it will be up later this afternoon.

Cath said...

Oh wow!I say to my son "This man KNOWS how to take photographs!" :)


If you know how to link posts in the back links John, can you tell me how? I notice you link to mine (you are there when I click "links to this post" on my blog) but when I try to link to others, it only publishes a post on my blog.
If you know how, I would be grateful if you could tell me! Thanks.

Jane said...

Wonderful and dramatic skies, interesting to see Palm trees growing out of the snow thanks for sharing.

I could live there. After all, you don't feel that cold wind through the pictures, so of course I could live there! It's beautiful, it has a sunshine opening and it even has palm trees. Yey, if I ever leave Africa, I must come here. Simple as that!

I like all the different views of the lighthouse. I'm surprised by the palm tree in the snow, though!

Fernando Pagán said...

Thans you four worrying about my blog. Nice shot. Congratulations.

Randi said...

Jøss...det fyret der er bare så utrolig flott..og den palmen er prikken over i en!
Favoritten er...hmm...ALLE!
Ha en strålende fin helg.

Klem til begge to...må vel innom din fru å klemme litt der også...hihihi

Gärdsmygen said...

Väldigt speciell känsla vid den där fyren. Sista bilden...vad ska komma?

Ivar Ivrig said...

Bra. Selve fyrhuset er ikke av de flotteste synes jeg, men omgivelsene og stemningen været gir. Tøft :-)

Sylvia K said...

Lindab said...

That last shot is tremendously powerful. And what a strange combination - a palm tree and snow.

Anne-Berit said...

Flotte bilder,gøy å se i flere værtyper.

Maalie said...

What dramatic photos of cumulus! Beautiful!

naturglede said...

Wow! Flotte bilder. De skyene var utrolige, og palmer? Stilig.

Tranquility said...

That last one is my absolute favorite! So beautiful!

bowledover said...

Its a first for me to see Palm Trees surrounded by snow. Makes you look twice.I love all your pictures the last is wonderful.

Mojo said...

I never tire of this lighthouse, no matter how many angles you (and others) shoot it from. I'm still having trouble getting my head around palm trees in this climate, but they're obviously thriving so I guess they know what they're doing.

Gorgeous as always!

PJ said...

The last photo is fantastic, I can feel the wind from here. It always cracks me up to see those palm trees! Happy SWF!

Gärdsmygen said...

John! Tack för tips om bloggen! Har testat och det funkar, får de om jag lägger om ngn av sidorna sedan.
Kan jag få ännu ett råd? Jag vill skaffa ett makroobjektiv. Vilket har man bäst nytta av: 60 eller 105?

Rune said...

Herlige fyr-bilder igjen John. Men en ting lurer jeg fremdeles på, hva i alle dager gjør den palmen der? :o) Det ble prikken over i'en med skylaget som ligger helt nedtil vannet der ute. Happy Skywatch til dere :o)

Michele said...

Outstanding... you have a knack with presenting such amazing photography!

mononeil said...

The last image is the best. Wonderful light and composition. Nice one, well done.

Babooshka said...

You and Lene make my day each week, with images that are just oustanding.

Lori said...

That snow with the palm tree is almost like an oxymoron...
Very beautiful and like nowhere I've ever been before.

Mari said...

More beautiful pictures!

Barbara said...

Carletta said...

Hi John,
These are as always magnificent images! I love the blowing fronds of the palm and the dramatic changing skies in the last.
Always a treat for the eyes here.

My Sky Watch is on my photoblog: Carletta’s Captures

Lew said...

Great shots! A beautiful place and changing clouds. I am also amazed to see the palm trees in snow.

Mariz said...

Awesome shots! You are a very talented photographer. Happy SWF!

magiceye said...

magnificent!!!!!

chrome3d said...

The wind is everywhere and it blows here on my screen too. Give the palm something to wear before it´s too late!

vincibene said...

Fantastic gorgeous series! I was very irritated from the palm trees!

fotoboksen said...

Disse bildene dine fra Filtvedt er bare helt lekre!!
Jeg må virkelig ta turen dit en vakker dag... eller kanskje heller en delvis skyet dag. ;)

Tarolino said...

En ypperlig serie. Lika vackra som Lenes bilder om det är möjligt. De där palmerna ser nog dock litet malplaserade ut i det snöiga landskapet. Hur i världen klarar de sig?

T and S said...

Beautiful series as always John. The first image is the best for me in this series. The best thing I like about your photography is the perspective.

Nancy said...

Every time I look at your photos I wonder why you don't do this for a living. You and your wife are so talented!

Evita said...

John these shots are so great and I was with you on it all until I saw the palm trees?!?!?

Wow they are surviving in the winter, amidst all that snow? That is incredible!

Su Chua Phin 徐蔡斌 said...

What are those palm trees doing in the snow ?

Strange sight ... I thought they two do not mix !

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Such dramatic pictures John, wonderful!

Ida said...

Fabelaktig flott serie! :) Det tredje bildet er veldig, veldig fint og spesielt.
Blinkskudd!

Sharon said...

Your photos capture the beautiful country you live in. They are all breathtaking!!

Mary said...

These are so beautiful and dramatic!

raf said...

John, how in the world do you do it?! These shots are all so incredibly sharp and life-like!

Mary said...

Wow...these are so dramatic! Palm trees??
