    I'm adding my WAOW too... in capital letters!

    Very nice images: inspiring and very colorful. Perfect weather to head out and capture the light of the season.

      Thanks for all the nice words folks, and comments to learn from!!!

      Today I was a short trip out to picture a couple of ships over at Freifjorden 1 Anchorage.
      As those are posted in the shipspotting thread, I might as well show the picture I took when turning my camera 180 degrees towards the Freikollen (629 m.) and the spire of the old Frei church (anno 1897)

        First time at Orsætra hill this year today, and the very first time in 8-9 months. Enjoy!

              I can feel the cold in your pictures Svein! No snow though?

              A trailer tire as a arty motif! Very nice and frosty. That must almost be a premiere for CVF?! What do you think Thijs?

                There is an eternity since the last time I was looking at your pictures Svein and you deliver top photos, I must say

                Nice to see some sunshine in your photos, it's something I look forward to here in the north gradually.

                  Thank you folks! Your words are inspireing!

                  Nope, no snow yet. We had it all before Christmas...., but you know in this part of Norway, March and April are two of the most snowy months of the year, so...

                  Even though the tire is from a small tracktor trailer for timber transport, Thijs might like any large tire, I don't know.

                  I like such forms, specially in black and white.

                  In a couple of images here, I had to use the camera blitz, and I hate that.
                  The main reason was that they were taken a time after sunset, and I would have to bring a tripod.
                  I used ISO 1600 and thought that was high enough. Tried a couple without blitz, but was not satisfied...

                    no snow here eather Svein,just came back of the walk with the dog,and it's getting white now,like on the tyre but thats it.
                    they gave up colder wheater here,but compare to Norway,it's nothing.

                    i specially like the ice crystals of 215/1 and how you can see the ice on the tyre,more crystals on top and how it vanish to a white layer on the side. (below of the image)
                    best regards Thijs

                      It's about the time of the year when details easily gets very dull contrast and there is no light available to log time exposures.

                        Enjoy? …you bet I did! Well, I keep coming back to these, and especially the blue and gentle gold sunlight of the perfectly composed first image of the logs.
                        In #215/5 the frosty bits on the long twigs have an almost sparkler firework look about them.
                        And of course that frosty tyre –marvellous.

                          Thanks, C..., always motivating words!

                          Went up to Orsætra again today, but without my Pentax.
                          Then, not all see the beauty in nature making its own art, and has to destroy everything.

                          This is how image 215/1 from yesterday looks today (via iPhone)

                            Someone has been cutting woods just down the hill from my home, and so came a beautiful motif up in daylight. An old saw at the farm 200 meters from my home.


                            Couldn't resist trying out b/w, but with no tripod and ISO1600, it is a bit too grainy for my taste

                              Interesting motif indeed. I so like the b&w and don’t find it too grainy, though sure that can be a matter of personal taste, though also depending on the subject matter.
                              I distantly remember experimenting with a b&w printing technique which actually used particular chemicals to produce an increased grainy effect to add to the aesthetic appeal of some subject matter!

                                come on Svein,i won't believe that you take just these 2 images,a frozen waterfall like this, just ask the be photograpic in al of its details.
                                as for the color as the b&w image are great,and just as Cecelia i don't find it grainy,it makes it a little softer.
                                best regards Thijs
