Lister Lakes nature reserve outside Ronneby. After a full day of crisp sunshine this warm front came in just as the sun set. My After Skate picture is taken the same day. You can see holes in the ice in the foreground. Do not come to close!
The nature reserve is absolutely stunning all year around, but known to few.

Magnus, with a magnificent photo. I opened the thumnail for the wonderful patterns in the sky you have captured. But I also realised how beautiful and subtle the ground (frozen lake) is!
Just love it!

Again splendid view !, Magnus. I admire your greative mind - it seems to be so, that you have a bit artist gift ( menar "poison" på svenska) and you allready are photographer, not taken a schooling trip here, what was in my mind. What to say, I`m totally "takened" about your very fine shot. You can be happy for it.
Jag har varit i Sverige några år och älskar ditt land mycket - och på den tiden lärde mig svenska - nå dåligt kanske).

Very lovely and special cloud formation you captured here - I like texture and fine light as well - the typically sweedish wood works well as silhouette - thanks Magnus - a very fine job.

What a peacefull moment! The criping of fresh snow beneath you'r feet... An amazing sky... the silence of the forest! You were very lucky to be here... :) Take care! Ramon

Excellent composition with lots of room for the interesting sky.
Well done Magnus!

Lovely sky particularly. Just a wonderfully beautiful sky. Now that I have started taking pictures I have noticed my look at the world and nature has totally changed. Wherever I am outside I am looking everywhere, up in the sky,... Every 5 minutes I see a wonderful photo moment. It's really opened my eyes...
dkeus31 (27735) 2005-02-05 6:23
Good colors, nice diagonal between them and the blue sky, good contrast.
Nice quiet and dark foreground.
ChristianS (2997) 2005-02-05 6:37
Hej Magnus, mycket fin och fridfull bild med vacker natur. Ljuset och färgerna är jättefina. Jag gillar hur skogens siluett tecknar sig mot himlen och det fina mönstret i molnformationen.

The only skating we can do is on the artificial ice-rink or look at it on television (World championships in Moscow, today). And we Dutch do like to make expeditions of 200 km (50 will do for me), but the winter is seldom cold enough to make such marches. And you get as a reward this beautiful sky after a fine skate day. What a luck you didn’t have only your skates with you, but your camera as well.
Alas! It’s sometimes unequal divided in this world.
Steft (5975) 2005-02-05 8:01
Such a wonderful foto! Mycket vackert! The structure and the colours of the sky are just perfect. The colours are so nice. It's hard to describe this picture, but the atmosphere is wonderful.
Only one thing: I don't like the colour of the frame so much, because on the bottum we can't see the difference between the picture and the frame. Well, there is a line between the photo and the picture, but it's hard to see where what starts. Sorry, it's just a detail. The rest of the picture is wonderful.
arth (1454) 2005-02-05 10:50
Beautiful picture Magnus ,wonderful the colours of the clouds with the dark silhouettes of the wood and also the reflection in the ice holes .Good composition and excellent contrast .Very well done
puister (570) 2005-02-05 11:46
WOw Magnus what a beautifull picture: the dark forest with above it the last remaining sunlight turning the clouds into great colours. I gave your picture a second look and then saw the natural frame at the bottom created by the reflection on the ice: great detail.Very well done.

To describe this photo I think I can use the term "swedish carper", like Jaap you have here a nice landscape composition topped by a splendid sky using much of the frame, also the photo format suits, the warm tones of the disappearing sun are the final touch. Excellent !
Have a nice week end,
kent_s (1911) 2005-02-05 12:43
A magnificient sky over a great place. Bleking really is tha garden of Sweden
Well done Magnus
carper (96) 2005-02-05 13:55
Fantastic photo Magnus,
I like low horizons and a big sky, well this is one, very good composed shot, good colours, very good taken, Yes I like the good job
nwoehnl (122) 2005-02-05 14:02
Excellent photo, Magnus. The low positioning of the horizon was a very good choice for your composition, as it includes enough of the tree silhouettes and the icy lake to clearly establish the setting, but otherwise gives full attention to this amazing cloud formation in the sky, that is greatly enhanced by the low positioning of the sun and the orange and yellow tones emitted by it. The result is a serene landscape shot from this magnificent place. Congratulations on a job well done.
paulspain (625) 2005-02-05 14:20
Hello Magnus. What a wonderful picture . The composition is really impressive and shows an amazing sky with an amazing light. It´s like a painting, full of beauty. Thank you very much for share this wonder with us, I am impressed by its beauty.

Sikke et smukt vinterbillede. Skyerne er vidunderlige, især dem med de varme farver. Fint billede!
danyy (0) 2005-02-06 5:27
Hello Magnus a really particular sky, a very pretty spectacle which offers a a little repetitive natural texture to us, as if it were desired. Beauty reinforced by the colour gradation in the clouds. I like also the precise silhouettes of the trees.
ChrisJ (99304) 2005-02-06 6:07
I like the herring bone pattern of the clouds & the gradation of tones from cold at the top to warm at the bottom. Superb color & sharpness.
jhm (140070) 2005-02-06 8:25

Le cadrage est tellement parfait que cela donne beaucoup d'importance au ciel qui est magnifique.
La composition est simple et très réussie.
Good evening Magnus
Framing is so perfect that that gives much importance to the sky which is splendid. The composition is simple and very successful.
Steve_T (421) 2005-02-08 15:12
Wow, great colours Magnus! Real nice picture, well done!
Predrag (164) 2005-02-08 22:49
hi magns, great photo. I love the effect. thanks for sharing.
Danzi (2461) 2005-02-09 4:23
What an impressive clouds, Magnus!
Very interesting landscape with fascinating and mistic clouds. It is a very good composition with varied contrasts and framing is good too. I can't say anything more...
I enjoy it a lot, good note and thanks for sharing!
phi729 (2101) 2005-02-09 18:55
The low horizon gives all the space to the sky. And you are right : this one with these clouds, drawing patterns and reflecting the sun light, is really beautiful. The ice, followed by the nordic forest in back, gives the cold winter atmosphere to the shot. Well Done, Magnus. It's a beautiful nature photo. happily this reserve is little-known, and is therefore better protected :)
jpages (1670) 2005-02-10 16:07
What a beautiful sky! the clouds making these repetition forms, looks really well. The light is perfect, the contrast with the black perfil of the forest is very well captured. It is a very relaxant view, I have put it into my favourites. TFS it, Magnus!
TomteTim (434) 2005-02-14 3:29
Yeah, this picture is a real winner..!! It's absolutely beautiful and the sky amzing, but the best is of course the perspective you selected. Very well doen !

paco (264) 2005-03-16 17:53
Right time, right place and good photographics skills. Great landscape, cold and at the same time warm because of the sun starting burning. You well managed to capture this place with this great cloudy sky over this frozen lake and pine trees silhouettes, nice angle to shoot.
weswang (18223) 2005-03-23 12:19
My heart has warmed up by your thoughtful help in boosting me up to the 1000 points mark. I really appreciate your help and your efforts. I hope I will be able to keep catching up, so that I would be able to shoot photos as good as this well composed, well colored, well contrasted beautiful picture.
souljen (177) 2005-04-03 16:22
Love the cloud formation in this one! Makes me want to say, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh....

enedimd (1532) 2007-10-04 7:49
