Det siste var utrolig flott! (de andre to også selvsagt) Speiling, dybde, lys...

Sylvia K said...

Breathtaking colors and such terrific shots! Always look forward to your post for Sky Watch! Have a great weekend!

Anne-Sophie said...

Ah! Sier jeg bare og sukker tungt. ;-)
Jeg så de to øverste bildene dine i sort/hvitt også, men jeg tror jeg foretrekker disse. Perspektivet i det nederste er helt utsøkt!
ha en fin fredagskveld, John!

Anne-Sophie said...

Jepp. Torsdag tenker jeg vi sier. Ler!

Shey said...

Awesome, breathtaking captures. My favorite is the 3rd photo with the scene reflected in the water.

Happy SWF!

Fantastic photos, I am glad I did not miss them.

CTG Ponies said...

Beautiful! Must be wonderful to see that view every day.

bowledover said...

As eye catching in colour as in mono chrome.
Wonderful job here.
Thanks for sharing.

Tarolino said...

Stiligt inslag även denna gången. Tyckte bättre om färgbilderna för deras fina färger men den sista är ett av dina mästerverk. Du använder säkerligen ett stativ med så långa expanderingstider.

Pati said...

So beautifull, I love this colorssss PERFECT

Det är just en sån veranda man vill sitta på och äta färska räkor en härlig sommarkväll!!

Brill Post for Skywatch John.

Yvon said...

The last one is a great photo.
Bravo.
Yvon.

Anne said...

Utrolig til skarphet. Vakkert John.

...igjen...

Ha en flott langhelg der nede, og hils til frua.

Børge's Blogg said...

Veldig mye stilige bilder her John !

SandyCarlson said...

Such gorgeous light in these!

Rune said...

Her ble det blink igjen John, lekkert! God laaaang helg der nede :)

Mojo said...

I can't decide whether I like the first two better in color or Black & White. And usually I don't have a problem deciding on that. But the lighting in these gives such a great warmth that you don't get in B&W that I can't make up my mind.

As for the last one, it's just fantastic as is. Nothing else needed!

RuneE said...

Artig å se med de s/h i minne. Alle har sine fremragende sider, men føler at nummer to gjorde seg best i s/h. Dette er noe jeg aldri får til - bøyer meg i støvet.

Photo Cache said...

Unbelievable images. You are one talented shooter.

Babooshka said...

Always wonderful images. The second one is very creative an unusual angle looking down through the image.

Anne-Berit said...

Vakkert som alltid,det siste bildet her var helt fenomenalt.Syns de to første var veldig fine i farger jeg da.
God helg!

VALKYRIEN said...

Glad jeg ikke la ut bilde av den broa nå! Har noen skjønner du - men ikke som dette! :) Aldeles nydelig! Alle 3!

bentonflocke said...

stunning shots!

prkl said...

My fav is the one in the middle. Nothing wrong with the another two either. Great photos, as allways. Noted that you have ton of lenses to work with, you must be in GOOD shape to carry them around. :) Wondering also about your phototreatment software, why that much? Thought that PhotoShop does everything..
Happy SWF!

mi-rachel said...

takk for kommentar.
jeg er helt nybegynner og har masse å lære fototeknisk.
derfor kjekt å følge med på bra fotoblogger som din :)

Tranquility said...

This is such an interesting location - coming right up from the water. What a gorgeous setting!

Clueless in Boston said...

They are beautiful in color, but I think I like them better in monochrome.

Ferreira-Pinto said...

Well, I certainly enjoyed them in monochrome and I certainly like them in colour too!
Hard choice it would be.
John I also would like to wish you a great weekend and also a good Workers Day.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

These are incredible shots. I especially like the last picture with the sun, the water, the bridge, and the lighted building and all the reflections.

Colin Campbell said...

Lew said...

Great photos, beautiful scene in either color or monochrome! And the views of that bridge and Drammen are exquisite!

The Explorer said...

I finally see the version of the second photo with its color. so cool.

postcardsfromwildwood said...

Thanks for the information about slow shutter speeds last week, John. I've been experimenting since then. Your third image here is absolutely stunning, and thanks for the info. 15 seconds exposure came as a surprise - I hadn't realised 'slow' means THAT slow for a sunset. But the results are beautiful.

hip chick said...

So beautiful!

Ivar said...

Marvelous sunset pictures, think I prefer the colored one before the B/W... Nice work

Daryl said...

Awesome ... as always!

martie said...

Beautiful images! I especially like second one and can imagine living in that sort of location. Having said that, the last photo is stunning as well with the lighting in the buildings. Wonderful work!

Evita said...

Glennis said...

Beautiful photos but I do believe I prefer the coloured versions. i like the way the sun is just peeping over the hills.

raf said...

Thanks for posting the color version of the former monochrome post. In this case, think I like the color best.

Lindab said...

Everything about Norwegian sunsets seems beautiful - even some quite ordinary buildings. I think I'll come back to these in moments of stress!

Hege said...

Utrolige bilder - og jeg likte spesielt det siste bilde!

Ivon said...

Great series of photos for SWF. My heart in in the sea and sunset pictures. You have captured both. Thanks for sharing.

Nå rotet jeg meg langt bort ifra bloggen din du...havnet på din datters blog..så gikk det slag i slag og plutselig var jeg langt borte i periferien.
Men nå er jeg her igjen. Nydelig datter du har og hun er jo kjempeflink til å fotografer....skal legge igjen en kommentar hos henne også:-))

Ja bildene din er utrolig vakre...fargene, komposisjonen ja alt tiltaler flere en meg ser jeg..vakkert, vakkert...har snart gått tom for skryte ord:-)
Men etter å ha surfet litt på fotobloggen din er det de bildene fra Nord Norge som virkelig bergtar meg!!
De bildene fra Mjelle er helt utrolig! Må nok en tur Nordover i år vi også...gleder meg til å fotografere den vakre nordlandske naturen.


Ha en flott uke. Hils Lene mor så masse!!

Marie said...

Du er ein meister!!!

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Hei John, kunne du sett på bilde nr to nå og sett hvordan det var i forhold? Lykta står ikke langt forbi Norgips, en busslomme på hver side og noen hytter på venstre side, ned i hagen der :) Takk for kommentar.

Martha said...

These are great, I love the bridge.
