The old shed by the seaside

Ageing with dignity

Shot Wednesday on the small island of Algerøy, west of Bergen, Norway.


This is my contribution to Dragonstar's The weekend in Black and White.

Nice b&w shot; part of the polarising set?

Malyss said...

So beautyful that it seems unreal!!An other one who could tell us a lot of stories, I'm sure..

Carver said...

I love old wooden sheds and this one is perfect, especially with the reflection. Great shot!

Marie said...

Oj så vackert Rune. Lite ödeskänsla i bilden med den ensamma gamla boden.

Birgitta said...

Ahhh...This is so beautiful!

Lovely, old-timey reflection...my favorite part, though, is that the composition is divided by the water splash...nice job!

Woody said...

The details in the building are incredible. This is beautiful!

Dagrun said...

Rolig, vakkert og enkelt Rune. Håper du har en fin helg. (Jeg har hatt en hektisk januartid, men jeg håper jeg lander litt nå fremover...Lite tid til foto og enda mindre til blogging siste par ukene.)

Dimple said...

I like this old shed, partly because it's not telling what the sliding door is for!

Viola said...

Veeeldig herlig bilde!! For meg ser det ut som en kjempesvær trestamme bak det lille huset.. (?) kanskje er det øynene som spiller meg et puss nå.. og er det ikke en fugl som lager de skvulpene helt ved land.. eller?

Ha en finfin helg! :)

Karen said...

A beautiful study in b& w, with a super reflection.

Mama Zen said...

Perfect!

James said...

I like this a lot! Great job Rune!

Marka said...

Looks excellent in monochrome!

Dragonstar said...

Good to see you back, and with such a fine photo. The shed on its own would be a good shot, but the reflection lifts it to another level.

Lara @ Uproad said...

you succeeded in capturing an amazing image of this old shack!

REJEN said...

Meget smukt billede, flot med spejlningen i vandet...tak for kommentarer til min B/W..;-D og god weekend...

exquisite dignity!

Halloisen kjekken :-)
Flotte sjøhus du her har fanget, og jeg ser og ser og finner det i denne posten mest sjarmerende, mens jeg tror jeg ville oppevart båten min i det i posten under her, he he ja slik kan det være du.
Polariseringsfilter ja, jo ja det er stor forkjell på dem, det er nå min erfaring. Kjøpte et til 1500 kroner på den vidvinkellinsa mi, og saken er at jeg føler og ser at fagene blir litt sånn som på det sjøhuset i rødt her, litt sånn FOR skarpe om du forstår hva jeg mener. Bildet bli litt unormalt, æsj, kanskje bare en innbildning av en amatør, hvem vet, men synes det ikke blir det spøtt annerledes enn hva en snur, surrer og vender.

Varm klem til deg Rune, håper formen er bra og at du styrer unna alt som heter forkjølelse, skal passe godt på du vettu.

Hans HB said...

Kjempeflott bilde som passer utmerket i b/w! Er det et gammelt ombygd naust? Kan se sånn ut!
Ha en fin lørdagskveld!

Gry said...

Så nusselig! Det er vel ikke plass til så mye der inne, men fint å se på er det virkelig.

Irene said...

Sjarmerende .... har ikke sånt i nærheten jeg! Så jeg er blitt litt opphengt i å fotografere ulike sjøhus når jeg kommer over dem! Funker veldig bra i S/H.

Ha en fortsaatt fin helg, Rune! Klem fra Irene

Ken Mac said...

This has a wonderful, haunted fairytale quality. Especially the undulating reflection. Just excellent! (If I was better with PS I would have erased that wire back at my spot!)

Abraham Lincoln said...

I wonder what it would look like with a coat of white paint? The roof looks like slate?

Ken Mac said...

me again twoo. Golden Ratio?

Abraham Lincoln said...

No, the effect you admired in the header on Brookville Daily Photo was done in Photoshop using filters, adjustments, and saturation.

Thanks for stopping by.

'Tsuki said...

Ageing ? Really ? At least this place will stay the same for an eternity, now that you shared its picture... ;)

Ida said...

Et fint, velholdt og ærverdig redskapshus dette. En skatt i kystlandskapet.
Flott fotografert!

God kveld videre,
og god ny uke!

E Squared and Mui said...

I love this capture ... I'm a sucker for reflections anyway and this one really speaks to me. Maybe because it's B&W.

Margaret Bednar said...

Stunning. I almost expect to see little winged fairies!

lynnwiles said...

The b&w and reflections are fabulous Rune.

T. Becque said...

Like a fantasy - beautiful photo - really.

Pam said...

Wonderful b&w shot.

Margaret said...

I like the contrast of the wood and stones.

Johnny Nutcase said...

very cool shot - lots of character in that little building!

Barbara Martin said...

Very nice. I suppose there are fishing tools, etc. inside.

Gerald (Ackworth born) said...

Ilove this mono far more than the two coloured shots on your previous post - of that I prefer the second one (that'll be without polarisation).

I have a new computer now with Windows 7 - got a lot to learn and some old emails have been lost so haven't been able to comment on too many blogs.
