I am not a fan of opera in general but I am a fan of this picture in particular.

Dina ... UK said...

Yes please!
Excellent is not good enough for this image...:-)

Dina said...

Oohh, ghostly! Where is the phantom of the opera?

GAWO said...

Gratulerer! Det der gjorde seg i sort hvitt.

Synd du ikke fikk sydenturen din.... men jeg er glad for å ha deg her slik at jeg kan glede meg over de fine bildene og postene på bloggen din. Ønsker deg en fin søndag i regnværet. Været er perfekt for blogging :-)

Kjmepebilde nok en gang Rune.
Drømmende vakkert. Et bygg hele Norge kan være stolte av!!

I like the feeling of being an outsider when I look at this picture. I've seen quite a few shots of the opera house, but never one by night - it looks as though the lights are shining out from inside the earth.

totomai said...

very serene. like the reflections too

Lucy Corrander said...

It looks as if it will float away.

I agree with Kitty - it holds the emotion of being on the outside . . . and as someone who likes opera (!) but who now lives somewhere where there is none . . . it makes me feel especially sad - something lost an unobtainable.

The monochrome reflection makes it look really icy.

John said...

Nice muted reflection on this one.

Jeg har ikke sett Operaen på denne måten før. Vakkert selv i tåke.

Malyss said...

A jewel shining through the night.. But what a strange architecture..

Underbar dimma och vacker arkitektur.
Drömmande vackert Rune :)

Nice shot, Rune. Looks so cold, though!

What a pretty picture this one is.

Carver said...

Wow, that's spectacular. Such a beautiful opera house, wonderful night shot, and perfect reflection. I am loving this one so much.

Della said...

Fint. Ett ställe som verkligen passar i snö.

~Just me again~ said...

Oh I love this. It sort of reminds me of the one in Australia? A lil similar isn't it? lol I dont know I could be totally wrong. It was the first thing I thought of ;)

thorgun said...

Fantastisk bild, så fint du fångar ljuset och dimman. Speglingen i vattnet är underbar. Mycket vackert!!

James said...

Fantasic Rune! This would also be perfect for my "Weekend Reflections meme which I started Friday. It would be an honor to have you participate.

Nina Xi said...

Wow, vilken bild! Drömmande o trolsk!

lynnwiles said...

Misty, eerie, and isolated, while intriguing and beautiful at the same time.

Nå trodde jeg at jeg så syner. Ute er det (og har vært) et strålende solskinn.
Men du er vel sannspådd slik at du forutser november allerede nå

PERBS said...

I'm thinking I saw this photo before. . . LOVE it! It is very nice memory. Did you realize you could have used it for reflection in the above post also?

Clueless in Boston said...

I am a fan of opera and also of this picture. You caught very watery reflections.

Elizabeth Gilje said...

We were there during the day - it's such a neat building. We walked all over it, but no sunbathing. Too chilly while we were in town. Really neat shot at night. I like seeing what it looks like lit up!

Dragonstar said...

A perfect reflection, and it's only enhanced by the mistiness. This is so beautiful.

VALKYRIEN said...

Du har så rett! Fikk ikke med meg dette! Blir sånn når man har vært borte en stund og skal klikke seg gjennom lista si! Går glipp av noen godbiter...
De fleste Operabilder jeg har sett (og har tatt selv) er i enten klart sollys med alle de virkninger dette har på bygget - eller opplyst om kvelden. Dette er jo da veldig annerledes - og en forfriskning! Nydelig soft i tåken - og lekkert speilbilde!

....det er nesten så jeg tror de som lager kodeord for innleggene vet hva jeg tenker, for kodeordet er nemlig: finest!! :)

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Great photo, it is spooky looking....

Daryl said...

the fog adds to the overall ... nice shot! Sorry to be late visiting this week

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Der har du fanget Operan i en helt spesiell stemning, den her har jeg stor sans for!

Viola said...

Det der var veeeeeeeldig spesielt!! Kjempevakkert! Et fartøy har landet fra en fremmed planet?? eller noe sånt.... :)

Nydia said...

Wonderful photo!!

Det var UTROLIG stilig! Og noe helt utenom det vanlige.
