Nice skywatch photos. Hubby and I love trains so this was a double for me.

Rune said...

Dette var et flott knippe bilder John. God dybde i de tre siste :)
Happy skywatch! Og fortsatt god påske der nede :)

Nå er tåken så tykk her opp at vi ser snaut over til naboen.
Ang bildet mitt så var det litt mer "påskefrukt", hehe.

Ida said...

En ny vri... ;)
Stilig!
Det siste bildet er spesielt flott! :)

Jane said...

Nice blue sky, I like the infinite perspective you have with the train tracks. Thanks for sharing:)

Arija said...

Looks like your trains have been upgraded since we were last im Norway. Nice shots, I reallly like railway tracks.

Sier meg enig med Ida, det siste bildet er spesielt flott.

I'm fascinated by trains and railways. I live fairly near to tracks that run from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific here in Canada.

Your trains look very, very different from the ones we have here. The tracks looks similar though. I like your photos very much!

Very nice shots dear John! Have a great day!

Tarolino said...

Det var mej ett stiligt tåg. Sedan måste jag riktigt rulla upp och ner för att bestämma mig vilken av tågskensbilderna jag gillar mest. Det blev nog den aldra sista bilden som blev favoriten den här gången. Låg du på magen? LOL.

Sandra Rocha said...

Fantastic work my friend.

ChrisC and JonJ said...

Great sense of perspective!

Babooshka said...

Even your train tracks are powerful images. It is the prespective that is so eye catching.

I like the low perspective on the train tracks - it makes for a very dramatic picture

Beautiful shots. I especially love that last one.

Evita said...

Wonderful collection of shots John.

I just love the trains in Europe - they do not compare to what we have here...

Lew said...

Love the perspective on these last ones with the tracks disappearing into the sky!

Dot O said...

Great photos! Love the train tracks!! You still have lots of snow laying around....

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Nice shots John, I have a railtrack like this closeby and keep meaning to do something similar.

evlahos said...

fantastic compositions between white clouds and snow and blue sky. excellent choice. Happy Easter

Gennasus said...

Such BIG blue skies! Makes me feel kind of dizzy when I look at them, not sure why, maybe I'm being drawn into the photo?

Anne-Berit said...

Kjempefine bilder igjen fra deg.
Ha en fortsatt fin påske!

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

Great series. I especially like the last photo.

Ebie (The Main-Ingredient) said...

Your series of photos are so crisp and clear as if I am just standing on your grounds. Love the tracts.

Mary Sharpe said...

I do very much like these railroad photos - and the rusty cars too!

I would visit more often only I find the page takes terribly long to load on my computer.

Du er god på skywatching!! Bruker dere polfilter på sånne bilder? Fantastisk sug inn, særlig i nr. 2 og 4, synes jeg.

ms toast burner said...

That is one immaculate looking train!

You have some fine photos on your blog... I must get myself to Norway one day.

RuneE said...

Dette er bilder som gleder sønnen av en gammel jernbanemann. Spesielt det første - du skulle lagt ved en fullstendig oversettelse for amerikanerne :-)

PS takk for kommentarene - kommer via HSDPA. gir redusert aktivitet.

Ithil said...

Jeg liker motivet :) Togskinner er kule saker. Fargene i alle bildene ser så friske ut :)

Rune said...

Det var ved Landfalløya det skjedde :o)

SandyCarlson said...

There is movement in these. Wonderful stuff here, John.

Rune said...

Hehehe...ja ser det for meg, da hadde nok enhver nabo falt ut av vinduet :o) Kanskje greit hun ikke liker snø...

tossan said...

Boníssimas perspectivas. Abraço

Aline C. said...

Hello from Brazil! I loved the sky and all the pictures. One day, I will visit your country.

Have a great weekend :)

Ash said...

Fantastic images!

Happy Easter to you and your loved ones!

Ivar said...

Great series again.. Train coming when light is off is a bit weird though. Nice perspectives too. Happy easter

GAWO said...

Mange fine bilder. Klarer nesten ikke plukke ut det beste. Men det trenger jeg vel ikke heller. :-)

...hvordan var det nå...kan jeg krysse når lampen lyser... hummmm, ble veldig usikker her ...

Charlotte said...

Hehe, så bra skilting. Hva da, stopp sveiv opp ruta og lytt etter tog... hehe.

Flotte bilder!!! :)

Ha en fin påskeaften!

Cath said...

Stunning shots as always. Especially the 3rd and the last one. I love the perspective. Did you get right down on the tracks for these ones? It feels like you did.

imac said...

Nice train John.
Hope you didnt get railroaded getting those fantastic shots.

Aline C. said...

Hello from Brazil, friend.!I chose your blog to join the international community bloggers.
The award is there on my blog.
Have a wonderful week :)

Peter Korkala said...

Nice photos of the railroad crossing. You still have a lot of snow...

T and S said...

Lovely images John. The cool blue skies are a bonus. You have composed these images beautifully.

Mojo said...

Thanks for clearing that up for me... I had no idea what those signs said!

I astonished at the color you're able to pull out of an ordinary rail bed. Truly remarkable.

Excellent work as always!
