Jaaa.... Man kan jo undres om noen har fått noe hardt i hodet akkurat i den leia engang.... ;)

Ønsker deg ei fin uke i det strålende vårværet vi har.
Ha fine dager! :)

If the subject of the picture is the panel itself, the picture is still perfect...Ü

Uvanlig å se et slikt bilde hos deg! Men et veldig godt eksemple på hvordan det ikke skal gjøres! Har jo noen slike selv! :)

Klikket på linkene, og de bildene fra samme sted - men fra annet hold - var virkelig interessante! Vet ikke hvilken jeg fant finest, tror jeg faller på det første OG det siste!

Kanskje de har erfaring med at det ligger noen kvinnfolk neddi lia der.... noen som ikke har smurt nista rett .-))

Her skinner sola og det er varmt, husarbeid får være husarbeid, jeg skal ut men kamera!!

Never let a little thing like a sign, block the view of something so lovely as this scene. I really do need to win the lottery so I can make a long trip to Scandinavia to see sights like this first hand. Beautiful.

Dont jump? maybe.
Great catch Rune.

Katney said...

A challenge, indeed!
So what does the sign say, something like "Do not go past here as the cliff is steep"? In that case, standing on the other side of the sign would not solve the problem. I wonder--crouching low just next to the sign? Oh, to figure it out--how to get the composition right without the sign...

PERBS said...

You stand right next to the sign and shoot -- you don't need those bushes on the shore to make it a beautiful photograph!

I have been busy this past week helping at a project at church and did not get to stop by everyday here because your photos are so heavily intense it takes a long time for them to download on this old computer. Thus, I ahve left a comment today on all posts down thru the dandelion one.

I will link your Friday bench again soon.

Reader Wil said...

Again a typical Norwegian photo, which I like so much! Thanks for sharing.

Malyss said...

Me again: I saw that you took time to visit "Pic a theme". Thank you for your comments!
About your advice to put someone on a bench in the train: On a photographic point of view, you're surely right, because you're a much better photographer than I am.
But On a personnal point of view, I like empty benches. A lonely bench seems both romantic and inviting to me. That's why there are very few people on my pictures.

Gorgeous, despite the intrusive signage. (Chuckling over the clever comments).

Anne said...

:-)) du får meg til å le Rune...
Anemone nemorosa ble nesten Anemone nevrosa...for tror jeg nå har 300 bilder av den blomsten og kun det ene ble jeg fornløyd med!!
morsom galskap da, og mye bedre enn intetsigende såpeopera på tv i alle fall.

Du så måse-dansen inne hos meg?? intet tvil om hvem som er min mentor...

Hilda said...

Sigh. I can totally sympathize. Even in grand old buildings, they're kind of hard to avoid.

Ah well…

It's still a magnificent view! And a perfect composition.

The Things We Carried said...

No, no. Nothing can ruin your eye for a lovely scene. I enjoy the foreign words here as it allows to travel :)!

Det minst miljøvennlige skilt jeg har sett.
mao kast søpla di et sted hvor du ikke treffer bilene under.
:)

Wenche said...

Er utruleg kor dei set opp skilt. Men det er jo greit å vite kva som er lov. Kan jo vere at nokon er virkeleg flinke til å kaste, så kanskje dei klarar å treffe nokon på sjøen?? Lite truleg, men best å sikre seg i allefall:) Blir litt som det står i bruksanvisninga i USA at ein ikkje skal putte katten i mikrobølgeovnen *ler*

What does the sign say? Love your monochrome tram shot and the daffodils are beautiful.

RuneK said...

Herfra så plaseringen noe artig ut, men det ligger nok noe fornuftig til grunn her :)

Og der kom jeg til å tenke på at jeg har et tilsvarende artig skiltbilde på lager her et sted.

AVCr8teur said...

I know how you feel. At least it looks easy to photoshop out. I'm not sure why they had to make the sign so high.

John said...

Hva står det på skiltet for de som ferdes under der. Bruk Hjelm kansje :)

Barbara Martin said...

Thanks for the tip, RuneE. I see many photos on Flickr with this very problem. Though by visiting here I can learn from one of the best.
