The photo shows Dyvig Bay near Nordborg on the island of Als in South Jutland on a sunny october day. When the weather makes a late effort and we have one of these mythical Indian summers, the effect of afternoon sun on the surface of the water is irresistible. The evenings are full of calmness and grace. But the journey of the sun however will continue in the progression toward winter, taking us into shorter days, with the sun even lower on the horizon – but not first without this gleaming farewell, through the golden hours of this season.
I used to be a winter person – I enjoyed wearing warm coats and breathing the cold air. But these days I need the light as if experiencing brightness were the privilege of being alive. So I find it depressing when the nights start drawing in, even more so once the clocks have gone back. I am already now looking forward to next spring!

A peaceful autumn scene very nicely captured here. I like the composition and the use of the reds to frame the boat and little wooden pier. Pleasant soft light and natural tones; very good sharpness.

Your Dyvig Bay view is remarkably reminiscent of my Parents' backyard at Clearlake, California, for the fishing boat at sleep wild landscape surrounding the glassy water surface.
Fine resolution, low level lighting, and all in natural colors, nicely composed and created,
PS: I'm with you on looking forward to the return of longer days and warmth.....

For anyone who has been around here for some time there could be no doubt who took this photo. A boat floating in calm water in pale Nordic light - it couldn't be more typical Kiela :-). I enjoy the view of the jetty and the boat, seen on opposing diagonals. The tufts of dry green light frame the view very nicely. The light has a great clarity and the colours are very pleasantly mild.

There are not so many pictures on TE from this part of the world, but when there is we know who has taken it! I get the impression that the sun is always shining and that the water is always absolutely calm ;-) A very beautiful and pleasant view with the jetty and the boat in good positions!

Hello dear Harriet,
I enjoy very much the beauty and peacefulness of this view and the way you've exalted them with your composition. Every element has its place in the frame, there's wonderful depth and an agreeable sense of harmony. There's marvellous sharpness in the foreground and clarity all over, we can feel the contrasting textures even at the opposite shore. You've captured this special light masterfully, its effect on the colours is stunning. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, I hope the winter will be brief and mild:)

peaceful scene with nice warm colors and delicate light. I like how you composed all the details into working wholeness. The reddish grass in the foreground frames the image in natural way.
Thanks for sharing

Lep pogled na mesto i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i perspektiva, kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobra kompozicija, lepo pokazano mesto, trenutak sa suncem i lepim refleksom na vodi.
Lepo mesto za odmor i ribolov, nadam se da ima velike ribe u zalivu.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
Nice view of the place and the moment ...
A good time recording and perspective, contrast, beautiful colors.
Good composition, nice place shown, the moment the sun and beautiful reflex on water.
Nice place for relaxation and fishing, I hope you have a big fish in the bay.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.

nice the view as the presentation of this calmly and tranquil environment with the wooden jetty and the lonely boat to enhanced from the Autumn light.
I like the beautiful place as the light management of the scene.

Un style d'image que j'affectionne tout particulièrement, le silence, douceur de la lumière et la présence de la barque, les reflets, les herbes aux couleurs de l'automne, une bien jolie réalisation
NorthernLight (1131) 2013-11-11 9:04
klasse! Wieder dies Licht. Einfach nur schön! Natürlich ist diese Stelle auch sehr idyllisch. Die Stimmung würde man nicht so gut bemerken, wäre das hier ein Parkplatz vor einem Einkaufszentrum. Schön, dass Du diesen Ort gewählt hast! Wir scheinen - was Landschaften betrifft - einen sehr ähnlichen Geschmack zu haben.
Alles Gute aus Schweden

Angshu (52890) 2013-11-28 21:30
A scene which oozes serenity & calm...even the water is so calm that it is mirror perfect. Very balanced composition with framing done naturally by the reeds & tall grasses. Very well done!
