Det ble kjempeflotte bilder John!

Takk for en veldig hyggelig tur i går :)

bentonflocke said...

stunning pictures!! Want to see more of them!!!

Arija said...

John these are extraordinary sunset shots. The reflection in the first is so painterly and the way the light changes from one to the next is sheer poetry.

RuneE said...

Idag har du virklig polert elven - de strøk blanklakk! Enorm dybde - fint lys.

PS Støpselet bare hang der på en kai - bildet er ubeskåret og bare svakt justert.

Charlotte said...

Vakre bilder, utrolig flott lys du har fått på disse også. Du er sååå flink!!! :)

Marie said...

Fantastiske bilde!

Photo Cache said...

always stunning photos. and brilliantly composed too.

i bet that was a fun photo tour.

Carver said...

These are all fabulous shots. I like the texture of the reflection. Almost like it was painted with a palette knife.

VALKYRIEN said...

Imponerende bilder! Det siste er litt av en annen verden på et vis! Aldeles nydelig! Dybden i bildene dine er jo som alltid spesiell - det er som om en kan spasere rett inn i dem!

Guy D said...

Incredible as always John.

Have a great weekend!

Helt enkelt perfekta studier över himlen och perspektiv. Bild nummer två faller mig särskillt i smaken men vilken som hellst av dessa får en att häpna av beundran. Ser att snön är praktiskt taget borta helt nu där i Drammen.

Anemone said...

Jøssesen å min!! har dere hatt guttetreff?? Noe så utrolig koselig da... trønderen og greier... jøss så morro det hadde vært sett dere ved kaia der!!

Nydleige bilder bele det i alle fall.

God helg herfra.

Esther Garvi said...

I wouldn't be able to pick a favourite, no matter how hard I tried! But how is it possible for your pictures to become better and better, when they were already AMAZING? Your photography astounds me. And so does your wife's!

tossan said...

Lew said...

The water there doubles the pleasure of sky watching! Gorgeous colors in the sky and I'm still fasinated by that bridge.

Bim said...

It's great how the sunlight is stronger in the reflection than it is in the sky. And the painted quality of the reflections is also beautiful.
I also like the perspectives of the last photo.

Ida said...

Vakker serie dette!
Refleksjonene er nydelige. Krusningene på vannet gir det hele en ekstra "touch".
Det siste bildet er utrolig fint! :)

Takk for hyggelige kommentarer og trøstende ord hos meg.
Jeg har prøvd å trikse (redigere;) det siste bildet litt da. Har ikke avanserte redigeringsprogrammer, men man bruker det man har.
Huset i seg selv er ett flott hus.
Jeg kan kanskje ut ett uredigert bildet på Nettfoto, med en utfordring til deg. Hadde nemlig vært artig å se hva du klarer å få ut av det, med Topaz osv.

Ida said...

Tipper at dere hadde en meget hyggelig fotorunde, forresten! :)

Tranquility said...

These are all so beautiful! I especially love that pink sky!

Babooshka said...
