SkyWatch Friday


These two photos are from yesterday. A wonderful day. Today this is gone. The temperature increased several degrees and it is raining.

The first shot is what you see when you lay down on the snow between some trees and look up to the sky.

  7. Vinter er flott, og det får du vist fram på en mesterlig måte her Ivar. Det første bildet var rått, akkurat som å stå der sel å se opp de hvitkledde trærne :o) Og det andre er som et godt norskt postkort. God snørik helg til deg oså :)

  8. You were not making snow angels then in the first picture.
    So much snow, lovely pictures thank, you for sharing.

  9. Wonderful photos! I like the shape formed by the 'negative space' of the sky with the trees round, on the first one also.

    The blue colour palette is so tranquil and meditative.

    I wish I could read Norwegian - I keep trying to in some of your comments. The word 'flott' comes up often - does this mean wonderful or beautiful or a similar meaning?

  10. So beautiful. I've never seen snow like this before. It doesn't really snow here. It just kind of freezing-rains and ices. I'd love to see that snow in person--even if I was freezing my tail off!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I remember snow. I don't see it anymore. All we seem to get these days is rain and ice storms. Your pictures are wonderful! Thank you for the wintry meditation.

  12. Vakre og stemningsfulle! Jeg får nesten lyst til å base i snøen. :-)

  13. Har du vært ængel i snøøn? Vakkert hvertfall - og nå er det borte vekk, ja. Like greit, synes jeg - var liksom nok snø nå! Hils madammen!

  16. Wonderful images!
    The sky between the tree tops in the first pictures resembles the form of a snowflake, beautiful! Too bad all this beauty did not last.

  17. Fantastic shots, you captured them perfectly. I'm not a fan of winter but you definately showed its beauty.

    Cheers and Happy New Year!

  21. Wow. Duuuu - når jeg søren meg blir svimmel av å se det første bildet ditt - daaaa har du gjort jobben din, ja. Du kan bare glemme planene om å pakke sakene, hehe ;)

    Jeg forstår at snøen skaper både problemer og frustrasjoner. Men også fantastisk flotte bilder!

  22. If I saw that much snow, I'd just go back in the house. You sure made the most of it.

  26. Your pictures are absolutely beautiful! Everytime I stop by your blog it makes me want to visit Norway. Then, of course, I've had a fascination with Norway ever since I fell in love with a-ha in 1986. But your photos make Norway all the more inviting. Thank you so much for sharing them! :-)

  56. he, he..det flrste tok du sikkert da du hadde lunch. Artig vinkel og snøen er jo så vakker. Og det er bildene med. Nå er sikkert alt borte, men du har dine fine bilder.

    Jeg hadde ikke tenkt å delta på SWF i år, men sannelig ble jeg hengende med i dag også. Står som nr 300. Jøss og jøss så populært

  57. The first one is really wonderful! I wish I could also find a shot, amongst your photos, looking down from the sky, may be in the future! Thanks for sharing your nice experiences and good luck.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Great photographs again Ivar, I really like the perspective in the first one. A little too much snow for me.

    ReplyDelete
  59. It's definitely wintertime in Tronheim, Ivar. Most impressive to someone in florida. This is why I love SWF soooo much!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Wow! The first one makes me kind of dizzy and it feels like I am there. I love taking shots like that.

    The second one is just beautiful. It should be a postcard.

    ReplyDelete
  61. GREAT SHOTS man!! I really like them.
    I'm willing to go to Norway soon, I hope it's as amazing as my dad told me. :)
    Nice blog.

  65. Takk for kommentar Ivar, god helg til deg også :) Si i fra hvis du har tid i morgen kveld da så kan vi se på den andre.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Takk for kommentar og tips:) Månen din var jo imponerende! Ser jo alle detaljene...

    På bildet mitt brukte jeg innstilling A med blenderåpning F36(det høyeste er F40). Lukkertiden velges da automatisk, så jeg vet ikke hva den var. Må nok lese og prøve videre i helgen;) Blir det mer måneskinn, så skal jeg prøve tipset ditt også...Mulig jeg må hente stativet hos min far også;)

    Det første bildet ditt i dette innlegget er forøvrig helt fantastisk. Får følelsen av å ligge på bakken og se opp på tretoppene selv:)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Beautiful snow pictures against the sky. Makes me miss the snow - for a minute. When the temperature rises and it starts to rain, that's another thing altogether!

    ReplyDelete
  68. All that snow on the trees gone with the rain? Your previous snow photos are very impressive. I see you have very hard winters in your country :-)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Snow is cool and so are these photos too.

    Kaunista, kaunista lumista metsää. Kuin puut puhuisivat toisilleen. Meillä Suomessakin täällä etelässä on joskus noin lumista, Lapissa lähes aina.
