Reflecting Beneath a Bridge

We have spent part of the Norwegian autumn holiday in the city of Arendal,as charming a city as any that can be found in Norway. There are many small waterways with accompanying bridges. And a perfect place for a bit of reflection on life, the universe and everything ...

PS A nice week-end to all who passes by this blog :-)

Herlig, RuneE!
Liker fargene du får fram her. Speilingene "forsterker" bildet!
God helg til deg og!

Marie said...

Fin vinkling på bildet!
Djupe klare fargar som berre ein vakker haustdag kan by på.

Takk for kommentar og god helg :)

Extraordinarily beautiful and special, Rune! I wish you also a nice weekend. It's getting colder but the sun shines!! :)

While passing under a bridge...Oh my, what a delicious view...just the slightest movement of the water makes the reflection even moreso. Charming city, indeed!

Malyss said...

I'm not sure if Norway has the most beautiful scenery in the world, or if it's the most colorful and/or quaint, or maybe you have a really great camera or perhaps, just that you have an excellent eye for getting just the right shot in just the right light. Whatever it is, you surely do have it! Love the colors as well as the picture itself! Beautiful.

Stemning du her har fanget Rune, og når en ser dette bilde ser en og du koser deg på tur, men :-)))) venter du på at noen skal trampe på din bro???

Klem til deg.

We are booked to go to Tromsoe next year and take the ferry up to North Cape, with dog-sledging and skidoo riding as well; should be fun.

This is a beauty!

Irene said...

Sprakende og flotte farger ... og flott refleksjon. En tilsynelatende uspennende brokonstruksjon blir fin her!

God helg til deg også!

Det blir fine refleksjoner i vannet og under selve brua når du tar bilde fra denne litt uvanlige vinkelen. Flott bilde.

I can imagin how nice this place must be - inspiring for taking nice photos - like this!

I'm glad you caught/created this, RuneE. The bright colors, the shine in the water, the bridge just a tad off center--it all makes a really appealing picture. No snow-capped peaks, no thundering waterfall, no roaring tide--just the quietly beautiful colors of a small place from an unusual perspective. Nice work!

Petra said...

Beautiful colours of the reflection, RuneE. I wonder whether your reflections on the universe were also that bright... ;-)

Gry said...

Artig komposisjon du har fått til her! Årets siste bad....? :)

imac said...

What a super shot my friend.
Great reflections Rune.

ChrisJ said...

What a wonderful photograph-- so sharp, so colorful!

Lew said...

Another grand water shot of your beautiful Norway!

Prospero said...

This spot does wonders for clarity of mind and spirit, Rune. I am half a world away and yet, vicariously, though this photograph, I benefit from the serenity.

GW Bill Miller said...

This is so good in so many ways. Color, clarity, the brilliant reflections. Excellant! The photo transports me to where you are.

Anna said...

Oh this is amazing photo, and wow for the capturing nice spectrum of colors. Anna :)

Cryingbear said...

Arendal looks like a gorgeous city. Beautiful colors.

Barbara Martin said...

Water and bridges are an attraction I find difficult to resist. Lovely capture.

Viola said...

Dette var storslått!! Vannspeilinga er nydelig! :)

Så mange flotte innlegg nedover her også. Artig med det sidespeilet under her! :) Og den Rhododendron, kjempenydelig! :) Virkelig fotogenialt!

Gorgeous reflection!

Hi Rune, I've been too busy to check out blogs lately and see I have missed a lot. This one is great and reminds me of the stereo camera images of days gone by, only with much better quality.
