Autumn by a Norwegian lake

This week's reflections are from a lake that once was part of the water supply in Bergen. Now it is only used for recreational purposes.



James at Newtown Area Photo has started a meme called Weekend Reflections. Post a reflection during the week-end, log on at his site - and you're on.

I have not been able to access Blogger or indeed any Blogs through my normal ISP all day (this post add-on is via another system). The same is true for many others around the world. I will thus not be able to answer any comments, make new comments or make new posts until this has been fixed by Blogger.

The problem has now been fixed, so then it is back to normal business!

I like the reflections of the trees on the water. The rocks in the forground are also very interesting, some of them almost seem to be floating in the sky.

Marka said...

How you manage to consistently find such still water for your reflections is beyond me.

Barbara Martin said...

Love these reflections on water than looks like a mirror. Wonderful!

I've posted a reflection this week.

Dimple said...

The reflections are incredible. Great shots.

How's the weather?

This week, my student returns home to Iceland. I hope it will not be too cold for her.

ChrisJ said...

Your photos of reflections are so crisp and clear!

I had a few posts to catch up with too. I love your photos of the otters. They are beautiful creatures and such an awesome shot.

I like the pebbles in the foreground of the lake . They look like nuggets of gold.

Barry is up in Canada at this moment -- but not walking in a forest I think! He will visit with my sister and her family briefly before returning home.

Vakkert, for noen flotte farger. Og strålende jobb på det første, at det ikke er utbrendt regner jeg med var noe du mått jobbe med.

For a 'recreational lake' this is remarkably still.

Reader Wil said...

That area is just as you wrote worth while seeing, but then again whatisn't in Norway!! Thanks for your visit to my bench. It tells the story of a Dutch family of four.

Regina said...

Impressive scenes. Great reflections.
Enjoy the weekend.

I'm sorry to hear that you are having blogger trouble. These are really nice as always. I like both of these for different reasons.

Cindy said...

Lovely reflections! Yes, Blogger has been giving me trouble too.

So far it has refused me access for just a few hours and I should have been in bed asleep then anyway. ;-)

How well you've capture the nice, quiet autumn nature atmosphere! Looks so relaxed - a place for recreation :-)

awarewriter said...

I like the second shot best. It's perfect.

Julie said...

The clarity of both images is so crystal clear. It is like unspoiled landscapes at its best, especially the second photo which is pretty much all natural.

Nice captures.

Beautiful reflections - and the water itself seems extremely clear. Where are the farmers and sewage treatment works?

Michael said...

Great lake pictures.

Lew said...

Beautiful reflections! Around here water is going the other way. More lakes are becoming water supplies for our cities.

Crafty Green Poet said...

wonderful reflections, I love the second photo particularly, the bit of stony beach in the foreground makes a lovely contrast to the reflections...

Michele J said...

A quick drop in... lovely photos as usual. I hope you are well, my friend.
Hugs♥
