SkyWatch Friday


This is a black and white photo. Just as it looked like this day. The sun struggled to break through the heavy clouds.

  1. Litt annen årstid her hos deg ja. Passer best med rødvin og fyr på peisen her :-)
    Her er det meldt 3 dager til ende med snø i helgen, så jeg får bare vente tålmodig på sommeren enda e stund. Hadde faktisk tenkt oss på hytta i helga, men ikke i snøstorm :-)
    Hils og klem

  5. Hallo Ivar,
    this is a wunderful wintersky, yes a little bit mystic.
    I like this "stemniger" and it is beautiful to be at a place like that.

  6. Though you captured it in B&W, I bet the scene wasn't much different than that. Beautiful.

  9. Der slo Ivar til igjen. Ta en tur når det blir sol igjen, og du har neste års julekort.

    Men dette var bedre.

  11. Dette var lækkert. Flott med sort-hvitt, som en kontrast til alt det rosa og oransje:) (Det er pent det også, altså - men moro at ikke alle er like). Hvor er dette tatt, da?

  12. Absolutely beautiful, could I have some of this serene cool setting, it is so hot and humid here.

  15. Winter wonderland!
    Veldig flott bilde. Det er nesten slik at jeg får lyst til å spenne på meg skiene - og det sier ikke så rent lite siden jeg ikke er så glad i å gå på ski!

  16. Man kan spa på seg kink i ryggen og erge seg over store snømengder. Men når man ser slike bilder er alt glem!! Et eventyrbilde! God helg til deg også Ivar :o)

  17. beautfiul winter scene. gloomy but beautiful.

  18. Denne var bra. Det er ennå mulig å lure fram litt mer fres i tonene, men det er ganske vanskelig da det faktisk ER grått i været. Veldig flott forgrunn mot bakgrunn. Og rent viderekomment gjort å gjemme høylyset slik bak treet, nice :)

    Skulle jeg ønske noe annerledes måtte det være litt mer rendyrking av motivet, og mindre elgmat forran.

  19. The first time I landed here I fell in love with your photographs. It's something about the chilly clarity, it's in the subtle details...
    This one makes no exception.

  40. Hei! Jeg kan ikke se lista over skywatchere. Vet du hva som har skjedd? Jeg har prøvd flere nettlesere og operativsystemer, men Mr.Linky kommer ikke frem...

    Siden tydeligvis andre ser den, kan du skrive meg opp på lista? http://stineshverdag.blogspot.com/

  41. Flott bilde forresten :)
    Jeg skulle gjerne hatt en slik nydelig vinterstemning, men her bare regner det...

  44. I love the very greyness of this winter scene. It really gives the feeling of a long cold winter.

    ReplyDelete
  45. How beautiful - so much "color" in the B & W.

    My first visit to you and I enjoyed many of your previous posts also. You have a great eye.
    I'll be following you in the future.

  46. As always it's a wonderful picture.
    You used a great piont of view and I like your choise for the black and white. It give's the picture something dramatic.

  47. Some days are made for black and white. It heightens the lonely feeling.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Very nice colors, Ivrig! ;)
    Dette var meget flott Ivar. Meget bra komposisjon, dette gjorde seg godt i sort/hvit.

    Ha en fin helg!

    ReplyDelete
  49. The black & white is a perfect choice. I like how the 2 trees in the front are somehow standing guard over the scene behind them.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ivar: A neat capture of the stark sky, nicely presented.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Det er alltid like nydelige bilder på din blogg. Jeg har fått en utfordring fra Ida og videresender den til deg. Tar du den? Den er enkel og grei og høyst frivillig. :-)Du finner den på fotobloggen min.
    God helg!

    ReplyDelete
  52. This is wonderful in black and white!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Very Nice! I like the depth, the angles, right front you have the slope, then back and to left another slope, with mountain in background. Nice balance. Black n White, great touch!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Stunning offering as always.
    I love that the sun is just breaking through the clouds, yet is still obscured by the snow laden tree.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Nydelig bilde. Skal aldri klage på for mye snø.

    ReplyDelete
  56. The B&W choice certainly projects mood. Nice job.

  58. Hi Ivar,
    an excellent and beautifull frame

  59. Our last few days here have been so foggy that even the color pictures look like this--varied shades of gray. Again, beautiful shot.

  63. Le jeu avec la lumière est remarquable et donne du relief à cette magnifique photo.
    Les tonalités d'origine ne devaient effectivement pas être si éloignées du noir et blanc.
    Cette photo pourrait faire son entrée dans Monochrome Maniacs

    Your photographs are such an inspiration.
