My thoughts went as following:
#1: Beautiful, nice and gentle. But I miss that spice, the specific "John-contrast" that makes me go all oooos and aaaaahs in my mind.
#2: Aaaaah, now we're talking!! Wild, deep, cold and moving... I think to myself that this one is probably going to my favourite tonight.

...and then I scroll down (the Niger internet leaves room for anticipation as it takes time to load!)...

#3: !!! BEAUTIFUL! Glowing sunshine on icecold water! All that contrast... All that width...

I find myself still smiling!

Dot O said...

Love, love, love these, but mostly the last one with the sunset on the water.

Again, there is so much texture in your work. I think if I lived anywhere near you, I'd have to tag along and watch how you capture these photos!

Flott flott flott. På det første bildet innbyr fargene og treverket til litt bruk av Topaz/Lucis. Bra komposisjon.

De to siste er bare sååå beroligende. Litt kaldt men dog :-)

Guy D said...

Brilliant photos once again John, the first one is my favourite.

Have a great weekend!

Noen sier at solnedgang er klisjé, men jeg syns ikke det gjør noe. Når du skaper med lys på det viset du gjør på disse bildene dine, kan det vondt kalles annet en kunst. Liker måten du bruker linjene på i det første bildet - og detaljene i vann og på himmel i det to andre. Utrolig vakkert og fredfullt.

KOSTAS said...

One of most beautiful post that I saw this week!
Very clean, balanced and beautiful photographs with marvellous subject!

the daily said...

OMG....all gorgeous shots

My entry for SWF post this week: in HERE. I hope that you can stop by as well. Thanks

Louise said...

The skies are so vast. I love the perspectives in all of these photos!

Rob Ripma said...

Awesome shots. I really like the low angle on the first one!

Rune said...

Flotte komposisjoner John! Brygga i Nevlunghavn kom fram på en eksemplarisk måte :)

Pussig det med skygger ja,hehe,de kommer med overalt, så hvorfor ikke ta den helt ut som på Mølen. :) Happy SkyWatch.

Carletta said...

Awesome! I really need to find another word to use when I come here. :)
Your shots always make my Sky Watch trip around the world all the more worthwhile!

My post is here: Carletta’s Captures.

bowledover said...

You have the eye for perspective. The nature may be there but you brought it to us. Thanks.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

All three photos charmed me, John! I LOVE the way you and Lene get down low to take some of your photos. I'm going to try that! (But I might wait till the ground is a bit warmer.) The boards in your first photo look so lo-o-ong. I like that.

The reflections in your next two photos are outstanding.

RuneE said...

Her har du noen nydelige perspektiver, men det første bildet med treverket tar "kaka". Slike vinkler liker jeg.

Erin said...

a beautiful trio of shots.like the depth and texture in the first and the second draws one in through the clouds and the last of course is beautiful with the reflection.

have a great weekend.

Monika said...

Å kor fint - og kor eg gleda meg til sommeren
God helg og smil fra monika

Rune said...

Hehe, ja det er som regel etterpå man ser sin egen skygge :)

Ja, droppet det i dag, blir jo ikke klok på når det starter lenger... Lotto spiller vi på lørdag :)

VALKYRIEN said...

Vakre bilder som alltid! Det er jo slike landskap, farger og lys som gjør at vi nordboere gidder overleve her oppe på bjerget! Men det er ikke alle som greier å formidle på like eminente måte som du!

Og den brygga falt jeg helt for - stilig vinkel!

(Jøss - kanskje jeg er sammen med en slektning av deg.....siden du har masse slekt i Våler....)

Photo Cache said...

Oh my gosh! You take my breath away! I am simply pleasantly stunned. You are very talented.

esnorway said...

ja fine bilder selv om du må stå på kne eller ligge på brygga på det ene bildet.

Mojo said...

I thought the first one was a show stopper, love the lines and angles that make it up. But then I saw the second and the third... you just blow my mind with these.

Ida said...

Nydelig serie - igjen! :)
Det første bildet er utrolig fint.
Flott perspektiv, vinkel og dybde. :)

Sylvia K said...

Truly beautiful shots, John, as always! Love the colors! Thanks for sharing! Have a great weekend!

imac said...

Hi John, these photos are wonderful, crisp n sharp as usual.
Love the way how you get down to shoot from the ground, so magnifico.
