Nice. I get the illusion that woman is walking on air. I must have Mary Poppins.

Øystein Brembo said...

Liker dette veldig godt :) Lys og skygge i skjønn harmoni :)

Birdman said...

I can promise you this I four one NEVER long for winter anymore.

Great B/W image but as my granny used to say "Don't wish your life away!"

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Yes, a taste of Summer is very welcome, thanks!

Becky Jerdee said...

A good way to feel summer's heat again :) and a great winter weekend to you...it's Valentine's Day here in the USA.

And when it's summer, we long for winter ! :o)
Human beings, always wishing something else..
Your picture has a southern perfume!
Happy week-end!

Sylvia K said...

Yes, Malyss is right whatever the season, we long for a different one -- such fickle human beings we are indeed!! Terrific shadow shot though, Rune, I love it! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Great photo in b&w! Like the shadows!

Laura said...

What a wonderful composition… I love the play of shadow and light! Happy Valentine's Day:-)

Carver said...

Great use of light and shadows and it makes me want to be able to run outside in shorts for my shopping instead of the slow process of lacing up boots.

Dragonstar said...

A fine photo, with lovely shadows. When summer comes I'll be complaining about being too hot!

Monica said...

Wow,- så kult Rune! Nydelig lys og skygger, og perfekt for B&W!
Ha en flott helg:)

I agree about the interest and drama of the shadows. But her (almost) stillness is also arresting. At first I thought she was standing completely still and contemplating her next move, with two bags balanced like Lady Justice or whatever she's called. "Justice hangs in the balance." Yes, or maybe it's just the next step, left or right, how fast and how far must I go? These bags aren't huge, but they're not getting any lighter either." It's a perfectly ordinary, daily moment, yet there's some drama and characterization emerging in it.

Indeed, we often long for that which we do not have. Next July we will wish for a little of this snow. I love the mood of your b&w images. They are superb!

lynnwiles said...

I long for pavement without ice and snow. A little sunlight doesn't hurt either. Nice shot, Rune.

swfraser said...

A wonderful shot!

paul said...

Splendid shadow shot!

Tone Annette said...

Flott lys og skygge, og kontraster.
Liker!

EG CameraGirl said...

It's true that we do long for summer during winter, but then we complain about the heat when it finally comes. Humans seem rarely satisfied. But you ought to be quote satisfied with this photo!

LonettA said...

Wonderful photo in B&W! Great contrast and shadows!

Ingun Kleppan said...

Skikkelig tøft bilde!

Mandy Southgate said...

Wow! This is a great photo - so atmospheric.

Petra said...

We people leave long shadows figuratively as well, don't we? :)

Great b&w.

Taken For Granted said...

This looks like a scene from an old b&w film. Great light and shadow.

raf said...

Nicely done, Rune.
Yes, not soon enough, but soon - spring and summer.

Prairie Jill said...

Ah yes, I'm longing for summer, too!

Great shot. I love the shadow of the woman.

Preciosa imagen... Estupenda... Un abrazo desde Murcia...

Irene said...

Jepp, det gjør vi :)

Kult gatefoto, Rune. Gjør seg utrolig bra i sort hvitt.

Irene

Valerie said...

I long for snow.

Linda said...

Wonderful photo!

RIZALENIO said...

Shadow play. Cool! :)

Jane Hards Photography said...

Just so beautifully captured.

munchow said...

Herlig lek med lys og skygger. Må smile litt av dame som har handlet noen flasker - kanskje for nyte livet litt? Bildet gir helt klart assosiasjoner til syden. Det at du har brukt svart-hvit hever bildet yterligere. Her er ingen forstyrrende farger. Veldig bra.

truels said...

Et fint billede med dette modlys og i sort/hvid.
Og ja, så er jeg oppe på hesten igen ;-) :
