Har du sett på maken! De to skyene var spesielle! Og så fin speiling i vannet.

Hei du. Så du fant igjen lykta der ute ser jeg. :) Ble supre bilder John! Ble stilig det fra elvebredden også!

Happy SkyWatch :)

Dot O said...

I love all of these, but especially the last one with the bench in it.

John, your photos just make my day! They are so rich with texture and dimension and color - just phenomenal!

Dagrun said...

Heia bilde nummer 3!!! Fallt for speilingen innenfor steinene der!

Tranquility said...

Those are all gorgeous!
I love the light in the first photo, as well as that strange cloud that is pulling downward.

Brilliant photos, I enjoyed them all.

Carver said...

Wow, those are spectacular. I'm at a loss for words. Truly wonderful photographs of a beautiful place.

RuneE said...

Det var av vanlig høy komposisjonsmessig kvalitet! Likte godt benken.

Lara said...

I don't really have words for these photos... they are amazing!

VALKYRIEN said...

Hvis du tok disse for 1 dag eller 2 siden, så jeg de skyene! Veldig spesielle - og enda mer fra din kant! Alldeles praktfulle bilder, alle samme på hver sin måte! Blir helt grønn i fjeset her.....:)

Har lastet ned prøveversjon av Photomatix - og der blir bildene stemplet med Photomatix 3 steder når jeg lagrer. Må jeg kjøpe det programmet for at jeg slipper det tullet der?? Må jo spørre - skjønner jo at du har peil! :)

Pearl Maple said...

Amazing photos with beautiful views, thanks for sharing with us all in Sky Watch Friday.

Daryl said...

Lovely ... what is that odd looking cloud mass on the left?

Robin said...

You always have such beautiful shots but that third one is absolutely stunning!

Excellent shots dear John! I especially like very much the depth on these photos! Have a great weekend! Ciao! :-)

Owen said...

Beautiful shots John, must be nice to sit on those benches and watch the sun set and the water flow...

Tarolino said...

Jag är helt betagen igen. verkar som om ni haft lika intressanta moln formationer denna veckan som vi har. Bara det att jag inte haft kameran med mig när det gällt :(

Men så kan jag beundra de här molnen och fantastiska vyerna i stället.

prkl said...

Great shots all, my fav is the one at the bottom. Great perspective and whutta skies. Whoah! Happy SWF!

Photo Cache said...

Spectacular collection of images. I am particularly excited about the last two images. Is the last one HDR?

Fy søren for noen fantastiske skyer du har tatt bilder av!!! KULT!

Wenche said...

Vanvittig flotte bilder som vanleg. Likte godt bilde nr 3, var så flotte svaberg og skyene som speglar seg i vatnet.

Esther Garvi said...

Beautiful!! No wonder Norwegians spend so much time outdoors!

Lucy Corrander said...

Could only offer superlatives.

Especially like the colours in the first one.

The second to last one reminds me of the art on the record sleeves for the group 'Yes'.

Lucy

Stunning shapes of clouds, and really set off by the lighthouse and skylines.

Mojo said...

All of these are wonderful, but the last two are truly exceptional!

The Explorer said...

I cannot disagree with them...the last one is stunning..

phototherapy said...

I like this serie of skies, it's like the mood, changing and always the same...
In image #3, the stones are so close of clouds ;) In #4, the dark sky is great, touching with the bridge in the back.
The various foregrounds you choose are perfect :)
Good job, John!!!

Den sista bilden i detta inlägg är HELT FANTASTISK!! Härlig känsla och snyggt bearbetad!! Läcker!!

noreng said...

Seriøst fine bilder. Kan ikke unngå å legge merke til fyrlykta i det første bildet i dette innlegget. Det ser ut til å være samme type som jeg fotograferte i min egen fotoblogg Notater fra utposten (legg gjerne til på fotoblogglisten!) i dette innlegget. Det er et eksempel på sånne ting som man ikke så ofte tenker på: Finnes det en fyrlykt-fabrikk? Hva kalles en sånn liten fyrlykt? Hvem er det som tar seg av dem? osv. Ups. Mye prat. Det jeg ville si var: Fine bilder og legg meg gjerne til på fotoblogglisten din.
