This photo was taken last week in Oslo, along the Vækerø shore, very close to the main offices of Norsk Hydro.
It was a beautiful day, the temperature was around 15 degrees Celsius. When in Oslo, we usually take a walk along the Oslo Fjord here. Here you can see a photo that I took on Christmas Day last year. That day the temperature was minus 15 degrees but the water was still open.
You can also see a photo I took here last summer.

Very nice and tranquil scenery, well seen and captured.
Very good pov and nice layout with soft colors and nice shadows which evokes a nice depth of field fleening at the viewer.
TFS and have a nice day

Differnt time, same place, things change ... only photographers and artists will be so aware of seasons and light!
I much prefer this time of year, warmer and with so much promise of things to come.
Very fine composition, the bench and the distant buildings strongly positioned, with the angled path joining the two. The trees make fine natural frames.
Have a good day,

A beautiful square format well selcetd for the presentation of this pleasant place. POV well selcetd with the barrier and the wall which give propsect effect and learn the glance to the white edifice which arise in the BG.

A beautiful day and no-one else in sight:-) I like this composition very much; it suits the square frame perfectly and makes good use of the bench and path to create depth for the scene. Colours are pleasing and natural and come together to form a harmonious tonal palette. The image has very good sharpness. Happy Easter.

Such beautiful rich colours and sharpness. I love the perspective created by the pathway and the shadow cast by the balustrade is very attractive. Excellent job, thanks for sharing.

Discreet but very nice colours with a lot of different shades of green and brown as winter gives way to spring. The excellent sharpness makes almost every pebble on the beach every budding leaf of the birch trees visible. The workshops are interesting additions to this presentation.

Pleasant-looking place that invites me for a walk (a calm walk) or even some jogging... maybe, even better, some relaxing moments sat on that bench, watching the surroundings, thinking about life or maybe (again) thinking about nothing!
Very good quality!
TFS - congrats,

You really like this place. So you must go there also in autumn. It looks like a very nice for walking. I would go this path with pleasure.
Compared to warsaw, where in just a few warm days eveything suddenly became green, here not much spring can be seen. But The days are already so long..Fine composition, but it is lacking something important :)
pablominto (53744) 2011-04-25 21:57
This is a pleasant walkway along the shore, with a bench here and there for rest and contemplation!
Seems like you had a pleasant weather during your stay, hopefully spring will advance and give us some green foliage soon hehehe...
A fine composition with good depth!

bien bel endroit qui sent bon la nature alors que pourtant, il se trouve pas loin des habitations et des grandes constructions.
Une photo où à mon avis, tu as poussé un peu trop la netteté (sharpen).
My best regards.

Have a nice day.

nice place to walk with this beautiful springtime, good depth and colors on your photo.

It must be a joy to walk along the fjord in every season. The spring seems to have not advanced much yet, but in a few days there already must be much more greens. A good POV and composition where the path and fence give a nice perspective impression. It is also interesting to compare the winter and summer views to this. I especially like the Christmas day variant, which is taken from the same POV and has a wonderful light.
Kielia (21521) 2011-04-28 2:07
a wonderful presentation of this interesting place, very well composed from an excellent POV. I like the Scandinavian colors and the light of the early spring a lot. And I read your note with pleasure. TFS!

C'est un plaisir de suivre la perspective de la promenade sous le soleil d'avril. La composition est bien pensée pour donner une impression d'équilibre. Le printemps arrive avec les bourgeons de l'arbre dans le coin supérieur gauche.

Hi my dear Gunnar
Nice tasteful landscape shot you got! An excellent presentation by perfect framework / composition, so sharp in the detail and marvelous fresh color as usual. The branches in the above makes stable image to this excellent work. F4.0 is correct? so deep exposure. Thanks for your sharing finest work and have a good day!

As your shot shows, Southern Norway enjoys nice spring weather in April, and the seashore in Oslo looks great under the bright sunlight. You have captured the scene with the well balanced composition, interesting elements of natural framing and perfect quality. Excellent presentation of this picturesque part of the city!

Hello Gunnar! The characteristic part of the coast with to the fence and the bench here is indeed very beautiful and this photo shows many fine details. Good colours and perspective and an interesting note!
Buin (42120) 2011-04-30 12:59
I think spring still has a lot to do "up there" in the north ... ;-))
You chose a very good perspective here which leads the eyes along the seaside to the background. I also like the really natural colours in this photo. It must be real fun to have a walk there.
Thank you for the interesting links!
Greetings - also to Maily - from warm, sunny and very dry Siegen! Have a nice weekend!

A very nice composition indeed, lovely detail throughout in good light and clarity. Nice depth to this shot and the bench makes a good focal point and effective lead into the pleasing atmosphere, a lovely place for a walk. Some lovely light and shade along the path, the detail and colours with that DoF make this a beautiful shot. A great photo work, Congrats
Atousa (7123) 2011-05-03 8:07
What a peaceful shot!.. I like the composition with the narrow path well placed in the framing, lonely bench n the inclusion of the branches in the left.. beautifully captured.. tfs
Best regards, Atousa

Det känns konstigt att kommentera tidiga vårbilder nu när det känns som om sommaren är här.

Hi Gunnar. You caught a beautiful light here. Composition was well thought and executed, colors are very nice and details are very sharp and clear. Love the framing with the trees and the strong sense of depth.
Thank you for your interest in my gallery.
Congratulations on your 4 TE years.
Have a nice evening.
