    No particular reason why, but I suddenly remembered an image of Ombugge's that I saw ages ago but did not comment on. I've searched back and it is at #998.5 amongst a group of sunrise/sunset pics. that he was showing. This one showed a plume of snow blowing off the crest of "his" mountain - Sula. Amazing.
    When I look at Ombugge's photos of the mountains as seen from his veranda I try to imagine what it must be like to live amongst them and see them all around. My first taste of Norway (the second and last was the Kong Olav trip) was at a little pension on the Sognefjord. The house was right on the edge of the fjord and as the host showed me to my room I just gasped - it seemed as if I could leap from my window straight down into that deep, dark blue water. I never failed to stand and stare in delight each time I entered my room. Mind you, being woken each night at about 3 a.m. by the crash-clank of the ferry chains as it docked a bit further along, was not so delightful !
    I was partially crippled - fortunately only during a period of about 2 years - at that time, but was determined to do that holiday. Walking was not so easy, but I explored locally and did some great trips.
    Although a Londoner born and bred, there is something in me that longs to look up at hills and mountains, which seem to engender in me a real sense of being part of the land, a living landscape in which I am a small pebble (getting a bit moss-coivered now). but still a part of it all. East Anglia is known for its light - the great wide skies shine with it. Yes, I love that, too. But the land it gleams over, despite the brecks, the broads, the heaths, somehow is not the same for me.
    Bungay is, I suppose, a pleasant little market town, but inside me I have never belonged to it, despite living here over 50 years. On holidays down in the west country, as I drove off the M4 and south on to the M5 I would take a deep breath of satisfaction - of peace, relaxation. The Devonshire blood in me stirred and leapt into life.
    But I usad to feel almost the same when I was living in the New Forest for a few years. Leaving Waterloo station and heading away from London to my forest village, that same deep breath of relief would come.
    OK, I'm never satisfied.

      I mainly look to a image, not if everything is in perspective.
      I agree entirely, it's just that the perspective element came up so readily in this particular photo.
      Maybe i have to look different to a image.
      No, Thijs, please don't start doing that. It is the "look to a image" attitude that produces the pleasure to be found in your photos. You always seek balance in what is to be seen, and surely that's the most important thing? It depends on your reason for taking the photo, doesn't it? If it's ship-spotting, then yes, you don't want other objects distracting from the vessel, whereas for composing a picture of a scene then your sense of balance sorts out the many objects.

            Such a beautiful sunset in Ålesund, and here in Trondheim as well.

            These warmer and much brighter days are welcome to many in this country, me included. Everything appears to come to life, and there is suddenly a totally different energy coming out. Ahhh... spring time!

                    Nice images of the "cloud factory" :-)
                    And "upstairs", in about 3000 to 4000 feet, there's a layer of cold air pressing down like a ceiling so that the smoke has to flatten out and move horizontally.
                    Cold air is much heavier than the hotter air in the smoke, so it's really simple physics.

                    thanks guys

                    it was cold at ground level, the roofs of our cars were frozen that day.
                    that those clouds became flatten out,
                    i thought that it came of the wind that was blowing there on higher level, on a way that the steam couldn't got higher.
                    but to be honest , idon't know how the atmosphere works anyway

                    but it was such a great senery.
                    the orange sky, the morning duw, the straight up gooing ''steam'', and then the flat out on the higher level

                  The most epic sunrise I've ever witnessed. Just about an hour before the first allied soldier got killed exactly 75 years before, on D-DAY at Gold Beach, Arromanches, France.

                  but at this comapany i start more at the time when it's already to bright.

                        with a smartphone i can keep one hand on the wheel, and many times i lift the upperlegs for some extra help to keep it straight.
                        when i did it with the Nikon it was mostly a good luck and when there wasn't much traffic i used 2 hands, otherwise just one hand and hope the best of it.

                        I tell you, Yves, take no notice of what he says - you take your life in your hands if you ever hitch a lift in his HC.

                        If Yves would take a lift in the HC, there is no time for taking images, he would see so much which he wants to know about,and the driver talks a lot with his hands, that i will miss a lot

                      have to drive slower,always a cable in the image

                        Hey, I'm trying to catch up - in your Ditjes and Datjes thread I discovered your posts that somehow I have missed, here there are more and elsewhere some of Ombugge's. I think I know why, but now I'm trying to see them all. returning later.
                        Going to download #1019.1 and see if I can take that cable out in Paint. Remember what I did to that den Bosch market place scene?

                          No, there was another reason for me this last month or so, in fact two reasons latterly, that were taking up my time.
