Framed - updated

The old drawer has probably been used as a bench by someone hoping to catch some fish from this quay. It made a nice frame for boat and bridge.

BTW We don't always have snow and wind - the photo shows the same bridge and was shot from the same quay as the one below, but Tuesday this week.

PS Have nice week-end!

UPDATED!


It sometimes pays to look at things twice. I was not quite satisfied with way I had cropped this photo, so I did another version. Personally I prefer the last one. I hope the visitors agree.

I'm glad you put some text. I was completely thrown by the scale. Was thinking it must be something to do with flood gates and was trying to see the mechanism.

Clever! What an eye you have :)

Yipee! on the removal of the Word Verification system. I did the same thing. And I tried to let Blogger know that it is turning off comments. Lots and lots of people just refuse to leave the comments when that pops up after they have left the comment.

I like the drawer shot. Just didn't realize that there was snow in the area until I looked at the other photo.

What a capture Rune, spot on my friend.

Dina said...

Glad your weather calmed down so you could get this fine picture.

Anne said...

Kjempestilig Rune, men nok ikke til å henge på veggen he he :-)

Vått på din kant av landet å ser jeg, regner her å, på andre dagen.

God helg til deg, klem kommer over fjella!!

First time I see a bench used as a frame, but what a good idea! and a question: where you on the floor to take the picture?!

Sylvia K said...

What a difference in the weather and skies!! I do love your composition, Rune! And it is a beautiful bridge! Terrific capture! Hope you have a great week-end!

fantastic framing - it's got a bit warmer here too.

Anne said...

Forsøkte kutte ut ordbekreftelsen, og kom da så mye dritt??? aldri vært plaga av det du???

Barbara said...

Such a clever framing device - and yes I prefer the second crop.

Rune -- I agree, I like the cropped second one. Like the framing of the boat and bridge. I am an amateur and am always fooling around cropping photos. -- barbara

EG Wow said...

I prefer your second version too!

Reader Wil said...

Both photos are beautiful, but the last one is more focused on the boat and bridge. Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog. I also like "Morning has broken ".. very much, but I used that one last year or the year before with a sunrise.
Have a great weekend.

You're right, it does make a nice frame--and distorts sizes and distances, it seems to me.

Irene said...

Råstilig ... du har virkelig blikket med deg! Kreativt!
Og jepp, jeg syns også v #2 er bedre!

Ha en fin helg!

Viola said...

Begge er fine Rune, og det er nesten så jeg ikke ser forskjellen.. men etter litt korte opp og ned scroll.. så ser jeg at du er kommet nærmere rammen på det nederste..og rammen kommer bedre frem.. men det sier jeg også fordi du ville høre det.. ellers var de fine begge to faktisk! :)

Ha en flotters helg! :)

Viola said...

eller.. ikke nærmere rammen bokstavelig talt da.. but so to speak, in a way.. selv om du ikke er nærmere rammen, så får jeg *den følelsen*.. :)

Rizalenio said...

Brilliant composition. Very resourceful in using it as a frame. I like both but I like more the first one coz it's centered.

Happy weekend. :)

E Squared and Mui said...

Very creative; I like the second crop better. Really god job!

Lew said...

Agree with you on the cropping. The second focuses my interest on looking through the frame.

Birdman said...

At times, cropping can make or break your image.

Darlene said...

At first I couldn't believe that this picture was taken through a drawer frame. At first glance I felt it had to be something a lot larger.

I love both pictures, but I too prefer the last one. I'd love to have either one of them on my wall though. I absolutely love pictures of water. I also liked seeing the boat coming toward us.

Erika said...

Me too, dear Rune. This frame is very nice. Bye bye from Italy.

Rune, here's a frame within a frame, within a frame:

I forgot to vote. Like you, I prefer the second one.

Everything in life can be improved. I agree with you that I like the second version

Da er jeg tilbake og kan kommentere igjen...
Herlig bilde du har her. Teften din for motiv er jo bare strålende!

Petra said...

Runee, I am not quite sure which photo was the first one and which is updated but I definitely prefer the upper image. Centralization is rarely the best choice and the other cropping adds a bit tension into the picture. That's what I see there.

Emm said...

I'm not sure which one I prefer! I like them both. Sometimes I prefer the additional sky in the first one, sometimes I prefer the focus of the second one. Both great shots.

Spennende løsning på bildene!
