SkyWatch Friday



On Tuesday I got a glimps of the sun. For just 5 min she came through the clouds. More than enough for me to capture some shots. This pic is actually two pics merged together.


And I had to try to get a "close-up".

Please visit SkyWatch Friday for more skies around the world.
I wish you all a warm and pleasant weekend.

    Bildet av Ypsillon i dag er samme broen som jeg har som banner ja, bare tatt fra undersiden. Hva "Mazda" gjelder så passer jeg nok best på bakken, men utsikten er nok upåklagelig der oppe :o)

  4. I'm nowhere near as far north as you, but I know that "glimpse of sun" feeling very well. I saw her for about 5 minutes yesterday, and I knew it wouldn't last: I stopped what I was doing until it was over. February is either not looking good... or looking great for clouds!

  5. The first,with such a sweeping view, is wonderful. But the close-up is breathtaking.

  7. Du har "merged" bildene godt sammen - det er kjempeflott! Så fint med fargene fra sola som "hviler" på det islagte vannet på det nederste bildet. Og DEN fine blomsten under her, da - det var et vakkert innlegg, Ivar:)

  9. Nydelig vakkert Ivar. Både det ene og det andre..., men jeg sitter her å undrer, fotoidiot som jeg ennå er, har du bruk en skags vidvinkel linse på det første??

    Ha snart en toppers og heidundrende helg.

  12. Helskjønne bilder fra vintertrønderlagen!!! Litt mere farge hos deg, da - men mitt var også egentlig veldig blått - men jeg har juksa ;) Det skjønner jeg du også har gjort. Verden vil bedras - iallefall når bedragene behager øyet som disse bildene gjør!

  14. Sorry, sorry! Bare meg som ikke skjønner så mye av fagspråket på engelsk. Snappet bare opp dette med to bilder sammen - men det er vel panoramabilde det er snakk om da - og det er ikke juks, nei ;) Knallflott, åkke som :)

  47. Hei Ivar, flotte bilder som vanlig.
    Takk for kommentar på siden min. kameraet sto ute forlatt i minus 12 grader! i 1024 sekunder ( 17 min)
    Hadde på en litt for stor vidvinkel, så jeg fikk med for mye forgrunn, så dette er kuttet mye i bunn. ar også rettet opp linjene mye. Ligger en annen versjon på Digit.no

  48. A Great capture and very, very impressive. The close-up is amazing

    ReplyDelete
  49. Waw.

  51. And again it's great to see your snowy landscape and the glimps of sunlight in your first picture.
    But the second picture is truly amazing. It's awesome to see all the fine colours in the moisty clouds.

  64. Your images are wonderful. I love the curve in the ice in the first image, with that wee bit of colorful sun in the distance! The second one... the subtle soft
    clouds lit by the sun, the light on the lake, the dark sky above, well that is fantastic.
