        Hahahahaha....., the water was half an inch cold
        (Or as we say in norwegian: He went out in the water like a man, and came up with a "stabel sprengskiver" (stack of spring washers) ).

        As for the image of me coming out of the water, sure...., that's an image you don't want to see. Correct...

          Oh Sterkoder…I’m just catching up here after being without internet, and what a treat to come back to. That “birch on its way to blossom” image absolutely shouts Spring! So do the colours of the view called “Beautiful colours and stuff show up during low tide” at end of #54 and “Freifjorden and the mountains of Tustna/Aure” in the following post, and such good compositions too. I got very excited about these vast expanses of exposed rock! And thanks for the seagulls (both feathered and stone!).

          As well as admiring these stunning views, Pakarang has mentioned “details” and Janihudi that “you're more and more a macro photographer” and I vey much agree. I am even starting to think “Sterkoder” every time I see some interesting pattern in lichen or stone close up, and that “display shell” is my most-looked-at image on CVF this morning.

            Hahahahahahaha.... Thank you, My Lady!, and I'll let you all in on a little secret:
            All these images from 24th April are actually taken with my old FujiFilm FinePix S-1500.
            I kind of thought about it before leaving home, as I knew what to expect...., that I would've been changing lenses for every 10 meters.
            This might mean I just have to practice more to learn where a motif will be in the range of my lenses.
            With my Fuji I don't have to think about that, with a 30-300mm standard lence with super-macro.

              What our Ivy wants to know is why she hasn't found this thread before. Svein, it is superb. I started at the beginning and began to note down some special favourites but gave up almost immediately - it was impossible. What I enjoy and admire very much is your attention to detail and also the way you use the portrait format quite often as I particularly like that myself.

                Fantastic nice pictures from a lovely spring weather in Kristiansund, Sterkoder
                We here in the north will have to wait a little longer before it start to turn green in the hills.

                  After sweating over my new laptop for a couple of hours, I had to take a break and walked down to Viken farm again. More macro and b/w this time.

                  Here's another farm on the way between my home and Viken


                  Leafs on a poping roe tree


                  Three pine cones

                    I don't feel like commenting on all the images here, as you all see what it is..., I guess.
                    There are no secret that I find the low tide more beautiful than the high tide down here







                    Look at this! Isn't it beautiful?? I didn't arrange anything..., I just pointed my lense and pressed the shutterbutton down. Nature itself can be more fantastic than anything!

                      There are also a lot of juniper down by the beach


                      And close by was a pine cone still on the tree


                      And finally, the last two speaks for themselves, and I left them in colour because I thought that did it this time. Aren't this beautiful?? I haven't thouched nothing, only got down on my knees and took the shots...

                        …just LOOK at those pine cones!!!!! Such a blend of colour and textures…and allow me to drool over the pink feldspar crystals for a moment won’t you!
                        (hope E will read that….wow….the seagull-acceptable face of pink!!!!)

                        Oh and just look at the shore at low tide….and those fantastic images of the limpets and barnacles.

                          Absolutely wonderful S!

                          This is what I have been trying to say to you so many times: looking at these new images, there is no doubt in my mind that you have a great talent!

                          Have a look at image 70-3... beautiful! Very well composed and great overall sharpness!

                          70-4 is also very well done... these are the kinds of images which would sell good in an apartment or a modern flat, with a maritime twist.

                          And the image from Viken farm, the old carpenter's house: you have captured it in a very mystical and intriguing way. I love the color of the photograph. To me, it works very well!

                            Thank you!!!
                            Yes, I very much like the images #70-3 and 70-4. I'm particularly satisfied with 70-4, as it has a beautiful light and tone to it....

                            (The old FujiFilm Finepix S1500 can still do the job).

                              Aaaah, wonderful nice pictures from your walk, Sterkoder
                              Very good
                              And the old camera works like a dream, it seems

                                Yes...., for some reason I find it easier to bring along a camera with a wide range in the lense and super-macro than a huge bag with three lenses and other stuff just on this walk...
                                Thank you for making a comment!!
