Den plassen må være enorm! Jeg kan godt skjønne at det ble mange GB på brikkene herfra. Meget vellykket!

Ivar Ivrig said...

Jasså ja ja. Dratt i spakene igjen :-)

Raw-stilige bilder John. Helt rawtt :-)

Merisi said...

Drive me to the moon .... ;-)

Amazing,
how in the world did these cars end up there?

Erin said...

Laurieluc said...

Hva tror du en rust elsker som mef føler når en ser disse bildene gra denne gravplassen for gamle biler... gåsehud, og andre fysiske symptomer som ikke egner seg på trykk. Måtte vært en opplevelse å se :-))

Tranquility said...

These are really fun photos! I never would have imagined that old deceased vehicles could be so vibrant or interesting to look at, but they really are. I love the one with the cars stacked on top of each other!

VALKYRIEN said...

Jøje meg! Egentlig ille at naturen brukes på den måten - men uten denne plassen hadde jeg ikke fått sett disse stilige bildene! Glemmer jo helt å se på himmelen da! Joa - den er blå den!

bowledover said...

The colour combinations of the old cars against the wonderful blue skies are lovely.
Sad to see people's pride and joy come to such an end.
Thanks for sharing.

I really like this car cemetery, John. I feel like I want to find one here for a fun photo shoot. ;-)

Pearl Maple said...

Cool collection of photos,thanks for sharing with us, who knew old cars could be so artful.

Donna(Texas) said...

Your photography is Gorgeous!! Well done!

Jane said...

Love the blue sky, what a shame they have left these cars to rust away make for an intersting and arty subject to photograph though. Have a good weekend:)

Tarolino said...

Skulle dessa vara mina foton så skulle de se ut just för vad de är. Fula, rostiga skrothögar. Men ser man du får dem att te sig som konst. Bilderna är ju helt enkelt vackra trots motivet.

Sylvia K said...

Sad looking cars, but what happy, beautiful, blue skies! Marvelous shots, John, as always!

Arija said...

The third last shot loooks like a cow munching hay. All beautifu, the rust contrasts well with the sky.

prkl said...

whutta great old rusty cars, never mind the sky. i just love these, they make such lovely photos. with the right photographer, which was there. obviously. happy SWF!

Sandra said...

As I'm a old timer fan, I must say these are extraordinary sky photos!

Photo Cache said...

Your photos are outstanding. It's like looking at photos on a glossy travel magazine. You should do that collect all these and put out a coffee table book.

Babooshka said...

You have found beauty in the decay. I agree with Photo Cache, these could be in any magazine.

Wenche said...

Her var det i allefall nok rust:-) Flotte bilder.

Tammie Lee said...

Fantastic photos! The decaying vehicles against nature is striking.

rh-bilder said...

Fantastiske bilder - der kunne jeg godt tenkt meg vært selv en tur med kameraet!

Petunia said...

At noe så "stygt" kan bli så vakkert!

esnorway said...

fine bilder

Maalie said...

An intriguing collection of photographs!

bentonflocke said...

so many rusty cars - fabulous!

Great blue sky!!

david mcmahon said...

Impossible to pick a favourite. John, but I'm leaning towards No.3 or No.4 .....

Rune said...

Mange flotte bilder her John :) Kul SWF.Nesten for galt at så mye flotte biler står der for intet.

---

Det forkommer at det går noen bilder, men her har jeg ristet livet av sparegrisen for å ta et bilde bare, hehe.

Happy SkyWatch :)

Charlotte said...

De er bare så kule de bildene, blir så inspirert av å se disse bilene. Nå går turen dit snart :)

vincibene said...

Fantastic pictures! I love the contrast between the blue sky and the colour of the cars.

imac said...

Your skill is certainly not rusty John.
great post and pics.
Theres money in rust tho.

Just posted the last episode of Baker n Potts story

donnie said...

industrial experimental archaeology :))

Martha said...

quite a contrast, the rusty cars and clear blue sky.

PJ said...

Their grills are so expressive looking, they almost look human. Great, just great!
And John, it's PJ not JC. '~)

Mari said...

Very cool pictures! The colors and textures are great!

That is the chicken said...

this is such a wonderful site for photos. I really like all the rusty colours and the way the trees have entwined with the cars. Great photos. They give each car it's own charater.

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Great shots and subjects John, I had a similar shoot last year when a drained lake revealed cars like this.

Arlene said...

Great great shots, John! The color of the sky makes the brown place alive to the site.

Kichu $ Chinnu | കിച്ചു $ ചിന്നു said...

a really different sight!! Cemetery of Cars!! Loved the third one, The composition is superb

raf said...

Great series, John! Seems as if Mother Nature is patiently waiting as she pulls these old rust buckets back into the fold. Striking contrasts of brown rusty metals and bright bold blue.

Dagrun said...

Fantastisk serie! Favorittbilde (så langt?) er nummer to her!

Elisabeth's bright side said...

Stakkars, de smiler på tross av skjebnen. De er gitt opp til og med av bilentusiastene. Jeg må si bildet av Volvo'n var skikkelig bra! Alle de andre naturligvis, men fliret kom virkelig fram her! Flott serie!

Pati said...

Next John once this beautiful old cemetery of old cars. I fell in love in them. I will have alone to seek such neighbourhood.

nice weekends
Hugs Pati

Moannie said...

There is an awesome beauty in these shots that makes me want to paint again. At the same time my mind aches at the waste and the blight on the landscape. This takes nothing from the work, which is brilliant.

Naturegirl said...

I would agree that this is an oringinal entry! Good one!

The Explorer said...

It seems you have unique theme here in your photos...but it is nice looking at them

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Fabulously clear pictures. Fascinating, I wonder how long they will stay there.

Anne-Berit said...

En flott serie du har her.Rustne vakre bilvrak,og en nydelig knallblå himmel.Dere var heldige med været på den turen.God helg!

VALKYRIEN said...

Ser man det! Det lønner seg å rusle rundt i skrothauger av biler! Du vant "Post of the day" hos David M.!

Gratulerer så masse! Virkelig velfortjent!

Daryl said...

I am in love with these .. as I scrolled down I kept thinking 'this is my fav' and then I'd see the next one ... damn these are good!

Dot O said...

I never thought "dead" cars could look so amazing! Your photos are spectacularly clear and sharp! I love these!

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

What a unique and interesting series. Just beautiful.

I love your Monday post too.

RuneE said...

Gratulerer med utmerkelse - vel fortjent på alle måter!

pts said...

it's ' rustyless' photographs!

Oz Girl said...

What an impressive series of photos... the rust contrasts nicely with the blue skies! ;)

You have many awesome photos here on your blog. I love the Youngs Market shot below, just beautiful!

Morten Pedersen said...

Flotte rustikke bilder med mye farger.

Gärdsmygen said...

Så var det en nostalgitripp igen i gamla bilmodeller. Kul och härliga foton!

Mike said...

Wow...what character they all have :)
My Skywatch

Siw Aina said...

Det er alltid en fryd å stikke inn hit. Du får alt til å se vakkert ut, du har virkelig øye for det meste :)

Rune said...

Ble en hjemmeversjon av swf denne gangen, glemte jo hele greiene i går da, helt til jeg kom inn hit og fikk se bildene.

Ha en fin helg dere også :)

Pernille said...

Himmel så mange rustne herrer sorry biler det var der:) Men hva gjør det så lenge en får så flotte bilder av det;)

Ha ei kjempekoselig helg:))

ArneA said...

I still have so big problems opening and scrolling your blog that I seldom visit you for the time being, but of course I want to congratulate with post of the day triumph.
Have a nice weekend

Lindab said...

Cars returning to the earth - it reminds me of the book 'The World Without Us', about the slow takeover of nature if all people on Earth disappeared at once.

Mojo said...

Seeing all these classics left to rust like this makes me sad. But they make great photographs.
