Common Crane

No, it is not a bird - just your everyday hoisting machine set against the afternoon winter sky. I just like to keep things simple.

PS Have a nice week-end!

You got me with the title, I chuckled when I saw the subject. Those lights look pretty interesting suspended in the sky.

Blogger is giving my OpenID credentials fits again :-(

I have to agree with Wayne, you got me with the title at first, too! I love it! Really interesting capture and the lights caught my eye, too! Hope you've had a good week, Rune, hopefully a great weekend!

Ah yes these cranes are quite common here too.

Flott bilde, passende både for "Himmelsk" og "SkyWatch"!
Ha ei flott helg, - nyt fredda'n slik den skal!

Paulie said...

Interesting capture of colors!

Dina said...

Your crane is even better than a Grus grus. I love those colors.
Hope you are on the mend.

Well, I certainly cannot claim to be an expert on photography, but I must admit that this picture was very interesting to me. The sharp detail of that "common crane" was quite effective with that (at least to me) unusual sky in the background. I would say that this one maybe should be hung in some eclectic photo gallery.

Likte dette jeg også.Sier som Rema-reklamen,"Det enkle er ofte det beste".
God helg:)

As simple as a line drawing...excellent!

Viola said...

Den har ihvertfall vakre linjer :)

Og et nydelig bilde ble det!

God helg til deg! :)

Truels said...

I am so often surprised, when I see a "simple" detail photographed: That perspective is mostly much better than the whole scene. Like here :-)

katney said...

You had me, too.

After my geese, I was also ecpecting a bird! During my last 11 years of working, I think these was always one or more in view from our building.

Anne said...

Dette er da bare så DEG Rune, ja nesten på lik linje som måser :-))

Malyss said...

I'm sure that not so much common cranes are pictured in such a dramatic way! The real photographer is the one who knows to magnify every day things..

There is a good chance that you may never come back and see the comment I left beneath your comment on my post about gambling (A new feature Blogger came out with). So I brought it here and deposited it below:

You got that right, RuneE. I gambled that the free package of cigarettes the Army gave me each day in my package of C-rations, would never end: that I would love them, be thankful for America's generosity and set back and puff away in a foxhole on the black cinder beach of an Iwo Jima or the mountains of North Korea. Instead, I gambled and got two shot lungs, heart disease and about outdone my list of miracles—that I am still alive is, perhaps, my last miracle. Gambling on the arts is a worthwhile occupation, but I been there, for years, as an artist and did all that stuff and about all it got me was a sensitivity to linseed oil and turpentine. I was around, at all the shows before artist's acrylic paint came out.

What a sky!

Hello my friend, hope the medication is doing its job.

Nice shot by the way.

Jackie said...

I do hope that you are continuing to feel better and better. I wanted you to know I'm thinking about you and hoping that each day is a better day for you.
The photo is splendid! The colors are wonderful, and it looks as though it could be a painting....(a fine painting!)
Hugs,
Jackie

That is one great sky, and the crane makes a very nice contrast to. Good eye! (Hope you're feeling OK).

Stilig! Majestetisk konstruksjon. Himmelen er flott, men jeg stoler ikke helt på den, skal det klarne opp eller hva?

Ha en fin helg, Rune!
