Hallo Rune,
I got your comment, I can't get what you mean. If the post is against the rules or not o.k. I'll take it away.

but the sun is so clear here - i suppose i need to wear a heavy jacket to appreciate the scene...

in greece, we have chaos, because the police and government are weak and inadequate. the whole country is angry because a young boy was killed in a police shoot out. the anger spread into riots, and now the police are helpless to stop anarchists and hooligans and vandals from destroying everything in their sight. the education system has also broken down - children have closed down their school (they also like to be the rulers), so now we are faced with a powerless government, a weakened police force and anarchy among youth...

Kaldt og fint. Akkurat sånn som vi vil ha det nå!

Max-e said...

That's what I would call crisp and clear. Great shot Runee - love the atmosphere. Have a greatweekend.

ilanadavita said...

Rune: What a wonderous shot of the sky at the lake.

Tarolino said...

Such a landscape is manna for the eyes. The thing is that the sun as it barely hangs over the tree tops really changes the surrounding colours much more than the high going summer sun. These golden trees are so very beautiful in my eyes and it is a stunning shot as always.

Photo Cache said...

I know this is about the sky and all, but the reflection is what really wowed me. An outstanding image.

Louise said...

The blue and yellow, but not a regular blue OR yellow, work so well together. And the smooth water... just incredible.

Marie said...

Her ser det verkeleg kaldt ut ja!
Nydeleg vinterbilde :)

imac said...

Cool man - Beautiful Rune.

Maria said...

The sun is almost hiding - that's a good illustration of biting cold chilliness :)
Happy SWF!
We would say Brrr also in Austria!

Reader Wil said...

Very beautiful and light too. I've never been in Norway in winter and thought that it was always dark in winter, but that's probably in the north?
Here it's still green and that won't change. Only we haven't got any flowers now and the days are getting shorter too.

Torsdag said...

Yes Rune,
I checked that you are from Hordalnd and not from Oslo and now I know what you mean (-: !!!
I got some nice comments and I think people like this little different SWF, I'll keep it the way it is.

You are glad to live in an area with wunderful nature and clear and cold air. Stunning "Cold Sky Watch" with a good designed foreground.
Ha en fin helg

It looks very cold...but I don't see ice! The reflection is soooo beautiful. I'm wondering what kind of trees are still so yellow.

Suzi-k said...

Hi Rune, long time since I've visited! Can't believe you are back to winter so soon, where has this year gone?!! That is a lovely picure, a nice balance of warm and cold colours

Nydelig og kaldt, men skogen ser ut som gull, kjempefint!

John said...

Flott landskap/vinterbilde.
Det var lite skygge her, så jeg regner med at det er flere eksoneringer og photomatix med i bilde her :)

Very beautiful. Did you do much in Photoshop to get such beautiful colors? Gorgeous SWF post in any case.

Beautiful. I love how you can see the reflection of the sky in the water. Everything is so lovely and blue.

Even though it's cold, it looks so peaceful! I love the golden color of those trees also. Nice capture.
I'm looking at the sky here.

gwendolen said...

Absolutely beautiful shot. Very nice contrast: the coldld blue water and the warm colour of the trees. Excellent.

Beautiful shot of a very placid lake and sky. The sun on the trees creates spectacular clours.
