Fancy a dip

    Newer Older

    Don't you just wanna break that smooth surface with a big S*P*L*A*S*H :))))

    This is just above the freezing point, so think twice :)) It takes a long time to get decent temperatures in the water here, so you'll not see me in any Norwegian water for the next 2-3 months :))

    This was shot just west of Oslo, on the island Brønnøya. You need a boat to get here in the summertime, but in the winter there is a small bridge spanning the narrow water, so that it is possible to access the island by foot.

    Comments and critique are as always welcome. Let me hear your opinion, why do you like this, or even better, how would you approach this scenery. Give me your thoughts... not just a Wow!... only then I can improve :))

    Panorama Paul & KatyaPalladina would have added a little more space above and below the platform.

    I guess that would have improved the composition. What do you other Flickrities think?

      Hah, NO!!! I don't want to disturb the perfect tranquility of this scene by jumping in!! :) Besides, what i like best about this is the contrast between the lines in the wood and the absolute smoothness of the water and sky. A very inviting shot!
