I think all of us Israelis and Palestinians should be sent to this very place for several months for a cooling-off period. The sky, water, expansiveness look so conducive to peace in one's heart.

Malyss said...

And the wake of the boat, like an arrow made of foam, shows us to way to follow..

Gallow said...

We have a place here in NY called the Adirondack Mountains. The water and the hills/mountains of this photo remind me of there. I find peace that Dina mentions when I'm there, as well as looking at your photos.

Thank you for sharing. You've captured the colors with your exposure so beautifully. Were were you standing when you took the photo? Did you use a filter?

RuneE said...

Gallow: I was standing on a bridge, and I was using a polarizing filter. It is a RAW-file converted in PS CS3. The photo is not cropped.

PS And the waters are fjords ;-)

Texas Travelers said...

Many people don't explain what they are seeing in the photo or its elements. It was a great writeup with only a few words.

Anne said...

Det fryktes at Ida får trøndebesøk igjen når en ser dine bilder!!! en fristes så, og lengter tilbake dit faktisk :-)

Regner med du er på hytta og nyter livet, klem sendes uansett hvor du befinner deg kjære venn :-))

Reader Wil said...

I agree with Dina: Norway is the country where people can find peace and rest .
Tusen takk for besøket ditt og kommentarer.Jeg har også sett dokumentarfilmen av Discovery som handler om Yellowstone parken, hvor en mektig vulkan befinner seg. Det er meget farlig for hele verden.

Mokomoko said...

Flott bilde, mange fine motiver i disse traktene. Padlet fra Feste over Lurefjorden og til Risøyni nå i uken. Lå to netter i Lavvu der. Et nydelig område med masse flotte holmer og trange sund.

Dan said...

Nydelig bilde! Er så herlig med fjord og fjell, og da bor vi vel i rette landet;-)

Linda said...

Norsk natur er vakker, jeg liker spesielt fjell og fjorder.
Meget vakkert bilde.

The perfect view - so lovely, it makes me sigh.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Such a clear sky! Beautiful! I keep dreaming the sun is actually going to shine here for more than a few hours at a time.

I really like the boat and wake in the deep-coloured water.

imac said...

A beautiful shot my friend.
Congrats on your mention in Davids POTD too.

Carol said...

Beautiful photo as usual...I like the lines in this composition, where the land and water meet on both sides and the path of the boat inbetween...also really like the view from above...

Arija said...

Are you an eagle, did you strap on your wings to take this great shot?

B SQUARED said...

Beautiful view. How did you get this shot?

Hildred and Charles said...

Tom said...

A very beautiful view from you again this week Rune.. both 1 and 2 fill me with awe... I could well take in some of that fresh air right now.. :O)

krumbukter said...

Vad grönt vattnet är, det känns nästan som att bilden kommer från sydligare trakter. Fina molnslöjor på den blå sommarhimlen.

Naturegirl said...

Beautiful scenery!

Stephany said...

Gorgeous photo. I know I'm suppose to be looking at that lovely sky but the color of the water is amazing.

Tammie Lee said...

The heart of summer!

Barbara Martin said...

A perfect shot, RuneE.

Ida said...

Vi bor i vakre omgivelser her vest i Norge. Det får du så fint frem gjennom, også gjennom dette bildet.
Fint lys og farger.

Ser nesten for meg Gaus, Roms og Brummund, istedetfor den motorbåten der.... ;)

Ayie said...
