Postcard from Norway
In the short days of December up here in the North - there is some few hours where the light is good also for doing some moody shots from the snow covered landscape.
It was cold yesterday -20C but at least having a look as here one can at least avoid the feel of the low temperature.
2 photos vertical stitched.

Winter beauty well presented. Low soft Nordic light. Fresh snow and wide vista from a higher viewpoint. Very peaceful feeling.

A delightful postcard, as you say!
The gentle colouration, with just a hint of pink in the sky, and the lovely compostion, make this a joy to see. You captured the snow and the shadows very well with your exposure. I can only think of Christmas trees in this excellent photo. Good stitching job, too.

A postcard yes, but a nice one. Good to have kept soft natural colours.
Well done stitch to include the sky.

Des couleurs froides et typiquement hivernales ici. La lumière rasante donne une très belle ambiance est les arbres couvert de neige sont superbes ! Bonne idée d'avoir intégré ces quelques maisons.

Realy very cold (sunny winter) and beautiful post card of peacefull place. Especialy great light management. Interesting blue tonalities. Super frames
asajernigan (20426) 2008-12-08 3:48
This is a fine winter postcard! Your light management is great here with nice balance between sun and shadow. Your composition is fine placing the house off center and low in the frame. You should sell this one to Hallmark!

Bonjour, cher Jack,
Une très belle carte postale en provenance de Norvège. La beauté des lieux est magnifique. Cette carte postale pourrait être proposée à des éditeurs tant la qualité est excellente.
Cela me fait plaisir de voir un tel paysage, car en région parisienne, la neige tombe rarement !
jhm (135274) 2008-12-08 4:50
The first Christmas cards out of your country, there are always very nice for look it.
Also your stitching work is very nice
This gives a excellent composition.
Presentation and colours are superb. TFS.

tout simplement transportant, magnifique, une profondeur qui pourrait nous donner l'illusion de plonger dans ce décor, ce ce n'est qu'il ne fait pas froid en Belgique.
Superbement cadré et baigné de lumières douces.

tingeling tingelin tingeling...
such a christmas card you posting up for us, looks marvelous Jack, I really envy you from this less wintry side of scandinavia.
holmertz (37145) 2008-12-08 6:42
Winter as I remember it from when I grew up in Värmland, but haven't seen for years. Quite beautiful really, better than the wet darkness of later days' Stockholm. You have captured very well the slightly red tone on the sky and the snow created by the weak winter's light.
jjcordier (73330) 2008-12-08 7:19
Magnifique paysage hivernal norvégien. La composition est excellente, la lumière et les couleurs splendides. Très beau!
Emile (20350) 2008-12-08 7:38
Beautiful post card with this magnificent winter image, the soft light of the evening creates long shadows and give a nice soft colors to your wonderful composition. Good work with two stitches. The weather is too cold for me.
Buin (42260) 2008-12-08 8:50
What should I say here ...?!
There nearly aren't words to describe this beauty. A photo, a scenery to marvel ... to "dream into".
Greetings from cold and humid Germany!
gilou530 (34) 2008-12-08 9:31
effectivement c'est une carte postale que tu nous présentes là, un paysage fabuleux de ton beau pays que de neige, une lumiére et des couleurs bien maitrisées

I hate winter in my region,only sometimes little snow and allways grey.....
Good composition with the house and the two tall trees at perfect positions.Nice shadows in the foreground and great depth,not to forget the wonderfull light.
barni (15747) 2008-12-08 10:58
Magnifique carte postale.
Une vrai invitation à découvrir ton pays.
cyborg83 (4515) 2008-12-08 11:18
I would buy that postard for sure!!!
Great composition, fantastic landscape and plenty of snow!! I miss it a lot, in the past we had similar winter in Poland but now it is rare phenomena.
sleon (9402) 2008-12-08 13:18
Impeccable stitching of this gorgeous winter scene. I love the warm tints of the low sun on the cold snow. The feel really is one of warmth despite the low temperatures. Wonderful. Enjoy the winter!
xavshot (69835) 2008-12-08 13:46
une très belle photo.. très agréable à regarder; J'aime bien l'atmosphère de cette image et la sensation de froid qui en ressort. Beau ciel.
gneufeld (15884) 2008-12-08 18:41
A postcard if there ever was one! Wow, what a compelling winter imnage with perfect perspective and stunning winter landscape. Well done and TFS. Gerald
emka (73379) 2008-12-08 23:55
Wow, what a postcard. You have not many hours of light and such a sunny days I suppose does not often happen but you used it well. Splendid winter landscape. Very beautiful view of the all covered with snow, with no trails. Fantastic colours. Warm regards
danos (83093) 2008-12-09 6:25
really a shot that looks like as a postcard,showing a Winter landscape with the lonely characteristic house in it.I like the good management of the pale light as the calmness and the tranquillity of the scene.Well done.
Have a nice afternoon,Danos
delkoo (68) 2008-12-10 4:27
thanks a lot for this beautiful postcard, certainly very usual in your country ....
Muse (34938) 2008-12-10 6:21
Une vraie carte postale! Paysage superbe sous une belle lumière et une belle couche de neige.
Des couleurs très douces et une scène paisible
Longroute (19392) 2008-12-10 6:33
My god! already so much snow!
It must be a familiar sight for you, but for us here below it looks like a dreamy world. The light gives life to everything so one can feel a happy atmosphere: Santa Claus is coming!
Fine and crisp.
MarianneS (15338) 2008-12-10 7:20
-20°!!! I am not sure I could survive!
But I like your photo a lot, it is a great postcard.
The light is warming up the atmosphere, as well as this blue sky corner.
Silverkey (1435) 2008-12-10 8:48
I would be so happy to have so much snow in my garden...
Absolutely wonderful shot, with a nice POV, and a nice color (white :) )
Didi (55103) 2008-12-11 16:10
This is a good one to send Christmas greetings to your friend and family :)
The last day that we had -22° C in France it vas in winter 1986.
batalay (34765) 2008-12-11 19:24
This is indeed a postcard, still better, a Christmas Card — the best winter scene I have seen in years. The fluffy snow the pastel highlights all look inviting, although the -20°C is not. The stitching has been done seamlessly, with a very good choice of vantage points.
Warm regards, Jack,
rey316 (16) 2008-12-12 2:19
Nice composition and light, I like the colors and light spot
AROBN54 (11471) 2008-12-12 8:31
Oh, my word, Jack,
what a beautiful shot! Marvelous composition with the small house perfectly situated with the taller trees beside it. Wonderful soft light and long shadows. The contrast is perfect even with all that white and it has astonishing depth. Simply beautiful... Many thanks and kindest wishes,
mortijo (12828) 2008-12-12 13:33
An excellent shot. Christmas scenery as in the good old days. Phantastic light management.
brano14 (2656) 2008-12-15 9:57
Thank you for your note on my photo. When I saw your impressive resume, I can tell that was a honor. I've found that photo that is kind of similar to my farm.
This is a great postcard, represents well your country, especially now for these upcoming holidays.

Hi, Jack. A good seasonal picture. The trees in the foreground and the house give a very good depth to the image which has a nice 1/3, 2/3 composition.
Have a nice evening,
