Big wheel keep on turning :)
Fantastic.

ellen b said...

Ha! Love Q's comment. Now I'm singing. Beautiful skies behind the wheel!

GAWO said...

Først trodde jeg at dette var en utskytningsrampe av et eller annet slag, men nå tror jeg at det er et Pariserhjul. Er fortsatt ikke helt sikker. Og så ble jeg enda mer usikker.... for da jeg kikket på teksen fikk jeg følelsen av at du nå tar en pause fra Sky Watch Friday. Men jeg tar sikkert feil!

Lana G! said...

Oh man, now I'm singing it!

Gorgeous sky!

Truls said...

I didn't see what it was at first, but then I got it. Clevar!

Måtte se to ganger før jeg så var det var. Veldig bra vinkel.

Old Wom Tigley said...

Thank you for joining in again my friend..

A great wheel, and a great sky..
Thank you

Paulie said...

Gorgeous sky! As it downloaded for me, I was trying to guess what it was. Good thing you had a clue! You would not catch me on one of those ferris wheels ever --one time was enough for me! BUT I bet there is a beautiful view up there.

I wanted to let you know I finally got to walk over the CONFLUENCE bridge I wrote about two months ago. Some of the photos are on my blog today and more will be there Saturday. They aren't completley finished but they say we can walk it. They will finish the art work and such this summer. Come and see a taste of it now.

Luiz Ramos said...

Great wheel shot.

Champ Townboy said...

Very cool! Love it.

John said...

Ja jeg måtte studere bilde flere ganger før jeg skjønte hva det var. Det må vel være et pariserhjul. Veldig bra perspektiv på dette bilde Rune.

Rune: Stunging shot of the big wheel.

Daniel J Santos said...

excellent perspective, well done.

Anemone said...

Usedvanlig vakkert. Trodde flrst dere hadde noen rare heisekrener i Bergen, men tror nok dette er en annen by.... annerledes Rune !!

Texas Travelers said...

It reaches the sky. It is in the sky.

Very nice.

Mine is up. Come and Visit,
Troy

Carole said...

This is great! So much to look at here.

Snap Catch said...

nice catch! In the sky, there is no distinction of East and West, so the people create distinctions out of their own minds.... mine's up too hope you can drop by.

Pernille's ting og tang said...

Men Runa da, du forsvinner vel ikke herfra for oss? Ble litt bekymret for den "Bye bye" Håper du fortsetter i lag med oss mange mange mange flere fredager framover:)

Jeg måtte studere bildet ditt i dag. For det første så er det helt nydeligt. Utrolig klårt og det skinner liksom av det. Så trodde jeg at det var en kran og tenkte, "så kult". No ser jeg at det er et Pariserhjul og da blir det jo enno kulere, for det er virkelig skøy! Men uansett så er det et hærlig bilde og virkelig fantastisk fotografert!
All denne teksten klarer jeg ikke på engelsk. Beklager.

Ha ei koselig helg, Rune:)

Berit said...

Blinkskudd igjen!! Kjempebra.
Ha en fin fredag.

Me & my puppies said...

Great sky watch, I really enjoy seeing the shots from around the world. Thanks for sharing with us here in the USA.

dot said...

That is one BIG wheel and the sky behind it is beautiful!

Carletta said...

I have to finish Quintarantino's verse -"Proud Rune keeps on...."
LOVE the shot!

Sharon said...

Great angle on the wheel and with a fantastic backdrop!

Anne-Berit said...

Måtte se to ganger på dette bildet for å se hva det var.Hadde sikkert vært gøy og vært oppi der,hvis man var tredve år yngre og ikke ble svett i hendene bare av å se på at andre er litt høyt oppe,hehe.Flott bilde som vanlig fra deg.God helg!

Quiet Paths said...

Uh oh, now I have Proud Mary in my head too. It's contagious! Now, your Picture is wonderful. I love your perspective and theme.

gaz said...

DeeMom said...

HA “Q” is right on Great picture… those things are such THRILLS, especially on an empty tum ;)

nina said...

Nice shot--now what's all that singing in the background--can you hear it?

The Texican said...

Lilli & Nevada said...

Oh my goodness that is high and that is one heck of a ride. No you won't be seeing me on there.Nice shot of the clouds

D Herrod said...

Nice.

SandyCarlson said...

That is one doozy of a wheel! That would frighten me from anywhere but the ground level!

Sunshine4Life said...

wow interesting!

i bet it's too hot to be on the wheel on a sunny day like this. :D

Picturing of Life said...

God helg

evlahos said...

excellent choice. have you even tried this wheel?

Blue said...

What a neat angle of the London Eye, with that great sky behind.
Now did you take a 'flight'?
It would have been the perfect day for one, as the view from the top is amazing.

Angie said...

Hi Runee,
That is simply amazing! The view from up the top would be stupendous, wouldn't it.

HildeS. said...

Great shot:)
Aldri i verden om eg hadde satt mine føtter oppi den der!!!

babooshka said...

Fantastic backdrop,and that sky just so spacious and light

Kerri said...

Fabulous shot! I doubt I would be getting on that wheel....scary!

lv2scpbk said...

The clouds give that tower extra appeal.

Brilliant angle! Great shot...

T.R. said...

Great angle and composition.

eyestothesky said...

I'm singing too!! Cool shot!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Oh, Rune! Fabulous shot! (I confess, I didn't know at first what it was...but I DID figure it out!)

raf said...

Bravo, Runee! Like the angle too. Makes me want to take a spin into that beautiful sky....over and over again.

Misty Dawn said...

WOW!!! I love this! What a unique and awesome composition! One of my favorites this week!

byrningbunny said...

That's intriguing. It's a great shot and now everyone is going to be humming or singing Proud Mary all day! lol

Andrea said...

Wow, this is a great capture. I had to enlarge it to figure out it was a ferris wheel even with the hint. LOL

AVCR8TEUR said...

Interesting angle to photograph a ferris wheel. I have never seen one over water before.

Dancin' Fool said...

Excellent shot. It took me a minute but it works so well from that angle, and thanks to Quintarantino's comment I now have a great song in my head too!

GMG said...

Hi RuneE. Sorry for this short visit, but this weekend, I’m going to take a musical break, and next week I’ll make a very short trip, crossing South Atlantic. I’ll try to catch up with your posts as soon as possible. Meanwhile, leave you with some chocolate champagne truffles at Blogtrotter.
Have a lovely weekend and an excellent week!
Gil

Lara said...
