SkyWatch Friday


This picture is as fresh as it gets. I had to drive north for 3,5 hours to day in order to fix a problem (not this fence). When I arrived at site around 3:40 PM, I had this wonderful sunset and had to shoot some pics. But It was cold. -15C and a cold wind blowing. Brrrrrrrrr.

For more sunsets and other beautiful skies please visit SkyWatch Friday. Feel free to join.
I wish you all a great and peaceful weekend.

  18. Ivar,
    I love the color combination with the excellent value of each color (important for me, because I'm a painter).
    I thought a drive of 3 1/2 hours was worth to comment on your pic (just kidding) - hope you don't have to do that every time.
    visit my blog sometime, Jeannette

  52. Can you fix problems in the dark? When you say not this fence I believe it was one of your horrifying masts.

  65. Jeg gjentar meg selv, men bildene dine er nydelige:)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Takk selv:) Du snakker om Photoshop... Er det det beste av disse redigeringsprogrammene? Har fått med meg at mange bruker det. Selv har jeg bare Picasa, men det er ikke så veldig bra syns jeg. Kunne tenkt meg et annet, så tar gjerne mot tips:)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Nydelige bilder du tar - imponert ! :)

    Vil veldig gjerne joine dere i Norsk Nettfoto - om det er mulig....
    Har foreløbi ingen ren fotoblogg - men en hverdagsblogg som inneholder mange av mine bilder !
