Sweden is a very safety minded nation. This is a very typical seaside bathing place with a warning sign about diving in shallow water, lifebelt and a hook on a long rod in case you still try to dive. There are railings along the jetty to prevent you from accidentally falling into the water.
This is Lilleby Havsbad in the northern part of Gothenburg.

They say it is possible to have too much of a good thing:-) Anyway I like the composition with the angles formed by the jetty drawing the viewer in and offering an interesting graphical element to contrast with the landscape. Well presented, with good light, colours and sharpness and even a touch of red!

In a few months you should take care when walking on thin ice. Better put up another sign.
There are lots of nicely zigzagging lines in this composition, also a few pieces of strong colour, rocks in the foreground and a rocky hill in the background, good light and contrasts, fine sharpness. A very pleasant composition.

very beautiful composition rich in elements harmonious well balanced between them. Beautiful colors and stunning clarity.

I like the way how this frame is filled with details. That sign is indeed quite original. Those railings look exaggerated, even lower ones would make the point. If you plan to drown, please go deeper!

oh yes, "safety first"! I know...
Quite an unusual view - in terms of the combination of what is in the FG (this zig-zag jetty) and what is in the BG (a sold rock) :) On the whole, an interesting, excellently composed photo!
warm greetings from Moscow,

Finally nice sunny summer. Fine place. It is very safe indeed here but how about protection from a cold water? The railings along this small jetty are rather unusual. And something is on the water, like a small landing place. Very nice composition, all these railings provide nice lines.

Good POV and composition.
I like sharpness and colors,

un climat plus clément que la photo précédente, moins spectaculaire, mais elle invite à penser aux vacances.
Le paysage est simple mais accueillant, la technique de photographie soignée.

POV very well selected with, in the FG, the rocks and the pier which learn the glance and give depht. An excellent seascape, rich in details and with a good managment of light which give beautiful natural colors.
Have a nice day,

It became impossible to have a small accident, even for the pleasure:) and it became impossible to commit suicide. Sweden is a very safe country. An excellent photo and an interesting theme. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Kielia (22293) 2011-09-07 11:51
as a proud owner of a Swedish car I can tell you that I know for sure what safety is about!
This is a very nice document of the Swedish lifestyle - in the best spirit of this site! The composition is excellent!

Have a great weekend, Vasilis.

The sea is so blue and the weather so sunny,that we could think that it's in the south. The railings gives an interesting graphism,but concerning the security,I wonder if small children could fall under it.Anyway,this is a good comosition.

Hi my dear Gunnar
Very sorry for my lare reaction.
This is so sharp and fresh image as usual!
Quite suitable to be presented at the end of Summer.
Perfect framwork, composition and reasonable sequare format are marvelous as usual.
Thanks for sharing with your finest work and have a good Saturday, Best regrads.

A simple seascape in lovely crisp exposure with good distant clarity. Great composition well suited to this wide view format in a beautiful light and shadows.
The compo is most impressive, it causes my eyes to walk through the path and further on to the headland in the distance and beyond, very nicely done and so effective Gunnar! This makes the picture works. The contrast to the darker water and sky boost the effect greatly and the specks of stunning colors add further interest. Great effort. Congrats

C'est très curieux cette façon de prendre les gens pour des enfants. Notre époque nous surprotège pour ne pas encourir de sanctions de la part des assurances des maladroits qui leur feraient des procès. Où va-t-on ?
La photo est très bien composée et se trouve très agréable.

Really funny photo about all safety precautions taken in this place. Nice POV and composition. But where are all our country fellow men? I would guess that they have gone swimming and diving from the steep and slippery rocks. TFS and have nice Sunday evening!
ellelloo (6570) 2011-09-18 10:59
I like the composition with the zigzag of the jetty and many details included. The photo also transmits a lovely summer atmosphere with its beautiful light and natural colours.

Skönt att se bilder på sommaren så här i höstmörkret.

Beautiful brightness and good pov on this pier, a composition well balanced, pleasant photo, tfs.

Sicurezza ed organizzazione.
Un bellissimo molo , trampolino e distante l'"atollo" per gli ulteriori tuffi.
UNa spiaggia da "costa azzurra" ..in Svezia o viceversa .
Ottimo panorama e lavoro .
