Ooh, I love it when the clouds sit on a watery horizon! Gorgeous.

Malyss said...

I would like to be on the ferry just now... Or maybe in the lighthouse: no neighbours,no crowd, nice view, great weather. And plenty of seagulls.

Prospero said...

Great perspective, a sea turtle's (do you have these???) point-of-view.

PERBS said...

Very interesting idea! I enlarged it and it is even MORE beautiful. . . a real keeper!

I love all the different shades of blue and the cotton candy clouds..

Wonderful shot !!

Carletta said...

Looks as if the clouds are riding the ocean waves out there too.
Lovely shot!

My post is here: Carletta’s Captures.

one of the most beautiful sceneries: ocean and sky!

VALKYRIEN said...

Nydelig! Deilig å se alt det blå, både fra hav og himmel! Tror jeg må flytte vestover igjen ja! :)

Dagrun said...

Enkelt og vakker!! Ikke tvil om at det er det du jobber mot og lykkes.

Hadde jeg hatt zoomobjektiv hadde jeg fått skuta helt klart, men jeg hadde bare med meg vidvinkelen (10-20)....

Ishtar said...

Beautiful shot! Who can resist the beautiful endlessness of the sea?

Carver said...

I love the deep blue color of the ocean with the lighter blue sky and clouds. Glorious shot. Carver's Photoblog

Båtene som seiler inn mot de lave skyene lager et flott forhold i bildet.

Anne-Berit said...

Cheffie-Mom said...

The clouds on the horizon are wonderful!

Merisi said...

Simply perfect beauty!

The clouds themselves are lining up like tall ships or steamboats.

Tricia said...

Absolutely beautiful photo!

Sylvia K said...

What a fabulous ferry ride that would be! Incredibly beautiful shot and I love the clouds sitting so low on the horizon! Perfect! Have a great weekend!

På veg for å besøke Legoland, kanskje...? ;)
Dette bildet minner meg om fjorårets ferie.
Veldig flott!
En veldig fin helhet i bildet, med alle elementene, som f.eks. seilbåten i front.

I år blir vi hjemme,
av opplagte årsaker.
Koser meg som best jeg kan.
Deltar i SW igjen, til og med.
Men det er så lenge siden sist, så jeg har ingen "faste", utenom deg og noen få til, så jeg henger bare med.... ;)
Jeg synes det er flott å tenke på at det sitter hundrevis av mennesker rundt i verden og poster personlige bilder, og som vi alle kan se på.
Det er en fin måte å dele på.
Du har funnet din velfortjente plass her.
Har sagt det før, og sier det igjen. Du er et veldig trivelig bekjentskap her. En gentleman.
Hyggelig! :)

Ida said...

Bildet mitt er fra fjorårets ferie, forresten.
Ikke det beste, men han sitter nå der, Sitting Bull.
Jeg var nok ikke så begeistret for Legoland. Vi var der i den mest hektiske tiden, så det er sagt.
Har nok andre favorittparker på liten min som rangeres før Legoland.

Nobody will get the blues with a view like this. I love all the blues.

~~Randi, Hverdagsprat~~ said...

Så flott da - med båten, fyret og skyene som liksom stikker opp fra havet. Denne båten har jeg tatt noen ganger, en fin tur! Fortsatt god sommer til deg!

Monicas Hage said...

Nok et flott bilde:)

Tara R. said...

Wonderful perspective on this shot. Love the billowy clouds at the horizon, and the ships are a nice additional element.

Ida said...

Takk for utfyllende og godt svar.
Setter pris på det!
Skal lese og sette meg ytterligere inn i det.
Men kommer nok til å satse på 450 eller 500 D.
Tar med meg alle gode råd, så takk igjen.
Så gjenstår det bare at Ida kommer seg ut i verden igjen etterhvert.... For å knipse bilder selvfølgelig. ;)

Vi var i Disney Land, Paris for noen år siden. I juli, det også. Like lange køer der, som i Legoland.
Men vi bodde i parken, så helhetsopplevelsen ble ganske fin.

Raph G. Neckmann said...

What a beautiful scene! I'd love to be on the ship, or looking out of the window of the lighthouse! And the clouds look like little creatures trotting across the sky.

Grace and Bradley said...

Wow, it is such a fantastic day only the distant clouds. The sky and the sea almost the same color. I can just make out the lighthouse. Beautiful picture.

Tom said...

This is a beautiful picture and I can feel a kind of relaxation in scenes such as these. Maybe thats because I rarely get to the coast now...
Thank you for your continued support of my blogs and for the friendship that certain bloggers if they are lucky find...
Have a great weekend.
Tom

Stunning skies over the bluest of blue waters! Beautiful serenity!

EcoRover said...

How nice when the blue sky meets the sea--I just spent a week on the Maine USA coast, shrouded in fog...

Carol said...

Beautiful shades of blue in this shot...the ocean looks so real...

Lew said...

Sky and sea, and a place to sit and watch the ships sail - what more could one want? (Maybe a camera so as to share the sights). Gorgeous photo Rune!

Guy D said...

Nothing goes better together than sea and sky, excellent photo.

Have a great weekend.

Mike said...

Sailor Girl said...

S U P E R B, again and again!!!!!

Dewdrop said...

Really portrays well, the massiveness of the ocean!

Bonnie Bonsai said...

I love Ferry rides even on rough waters.

luvmyboys said...

I love how the clouds appear to be at the horizon and no where else.

Barbara Martin said...

Interesting how today I was looking at photos of ferries and coasts, and here I find you've posted a lovely photo.
