My World Tuesday



The Royal Palace. I wonder what two old people do with this huge house? Our King Harald V and Queen Sonja are both 72 years old ;-)

For more photos around the world, please visit My World Tuesday. Feel free to join.

  2. Maybe they watch stupid things on television. Surely Norway has stupid television, too.

    The first photo is just amazing. The sky, building and ground all have such different, but wonderful textures to make a fabulous capture.

  5. So that castle redefines every idea I ever had about personal space!

  6. I don't know what they're doing, but I wish they'd let me come visit! It's a beautiful place.

    I LOVE your header by the way. Brilliant!

    Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful week.

  9. Beautiful sky. If the castle is like our White House, most of it is office space.

  10. It is hard to imagine two people living in the castle. You photographed it so well and the sky in both shots was also fabulous.

  11. Cool HDR (or is it tonemapping?).
    Either way - great captures!
    Cheers, Klaus

  13. Ser du har vært på tur ja :-)
    Spennende..., men fikk du kaffe??

    Har du her brukt en slags vidvinkel linse Ivar??

  14. 2 nydelige bilder fra sjølvaste huset. Det er vel litt overdrevet at de to skal trenge så mye plass ja, hehe.

  15. Helmax Egon :) Ble kult dette Ivar.
    Mens du dro i spakene så kunne du fjernet den lampa som så vidt stikker inn i bilde på v. side. Jasså jaja. :)

  16. These really are very regal dramatic images.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ikke noen vanlig enebolig det der nei.Hadde sikkert gått meg vill der jeg,hehe.
    Fine bilder du har tatt av slottet,artig å se bilder som ikke bare er tatt rett forfra.

  18. Wow, that's an amazingly huge palace home. Two people? They must lose each other often in all that space!

    ReplyDelete
  19. They play hide and seek for days?

    Great shots.

  20. Ivar: What a beautiful castle, the King and Queen do have plenty of room.

    ReplyDelete
  21. They could of course have a packedlunch and go hiking around the palace, or, for a holiday, live in a suite of rooms at the other end of the palace. To see how the other half lives, they could always spend a night in the servants' quarters! Maybe they grow their own vegetables in the wintergarden. Who knows, one thing is for sure, they may as well enjoy it since they can't take it with them!
    Beautiful photos.

  22. Stunning architecture ... and how there are no trees in front of the building. Must be a very cold climate!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow amazing castle. The King and Queen dont have to do anything, they have people do for them..lol. I guess they would just watch TV and lazed around. The ancient emperor in China dont even have to walk around his palace, he had his servants carried him in his royal sedan within the palace just to visit his concubines...lol.

  24. I'm guessing King Harald V and Queen Sonja are in the far left, top floor corner of the castle... in the room with the curtains drawn... they're making up imaginary lives and putting them up on their blogs. I can't be the only one.
    ;-)

    You are one fine photographer.

  25. Beautifully photographed! And the sky is exceptional!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Nei, kan du fatte hva de to trenger sååå stor tumleplass til, hehe ;) Knalle bilder - både dette og de under. Fotohobbyen gjør søren meg livet til en utrolig morsom lek. Selv når man er på kurs.

    Og etterbehandlinge... Jeg, som i utgangspunktet er for det naturelige vakre - synes bare dette er sååå kult :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. ....og så glemte jeg jo å si tuuusen takk for besøket! Utrolig hyggelig, og både du og fruen er hjertelig velkomne igjen. Så tror jeg søren meg vi må ta dere med på Sverigetur - helt rått der vi var i går :)

  28. the first adjective came to my mind when I first saw this was: Grand
    And so should it be, a palace after all!

    ReplyDelete
  29. wonder if they remember their way around in such a big palace ..loved the picture :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Stunning pictures Ivar, I also did a royal home this week, Windsor Castle!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Nice punch with these images! Blue Skies.

  32. Awesome building, same building with different sky, how nice..

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow. They look like painting Ivar. Great shot. I would love to have them in my living room either as a photo or a painting. Lovely.

    For my part of the world, since we are celebrating Lenten Season, I would like to share another island-paradise which is perfect for the season. Please check out Cagbalete - Perfect Place for Reflection. Have a memorable Lenten Season everyone and God Bless!

  34. Jeg har tatt mange foto av denne bygningen, men har ennå til gode å få frem en slik effekt av den forhatte grusen.
    Jeg må mangle ddet rette utstyret eller se dårlig.
    Well done

  35. Fantastiske bilder av slottet! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Du har fått dreisen på Topaz / HDR tonaliteten nå ser jeg. Spenstig!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Her har du vel mixet og trikset litt? Uansett, veldig bra :) Hvordan har du fått effekten? Jeg ville klipt vekk de forstyrrende elementene i venstre kant av det første bilde, men det er da amatøren meg sin mening. eller føler jeg du har dratt litt vel i spakene, himmelen blir uekte.. men det er jo min mening..

    Bortsett fra det er det veldig bra!!!
