There is a lot of blue right now according to testing my new pol cirk filter. This is the third photo in my mini serie from one smal lake in the central of my hometown Jönköping, Rock sjön (Rock lake).
The Rocksjö stream is connecting Rocksjön with the Munksjö and finally it comes out in the lake Vättern. In the stream displayed in the photo you can if you are lucky watch beavers. I find it rather unique since it just 15 min walk from the downtown area of Jönköping.
By the way, on the hills you can see the roof of the regional Hospital, Ryhov. All my four children was born in that hospital :)

indeed your pix such a blue. Well deep blue sky and water. Enhanced with leafless trees by the river sides and it direct the viewer towards your object- hospital?
If it is a big bigger and clearer..it would greatly captivate the view or strikingly red roof.
Anyway it is really a great serene picture that you produced.
Just sharing the idea....even if you crop the darkside of the riverside it is going to look very interesting.

Hi Stefan. Your mention of you’re children all born in the same hospital just reminded me that both my son and grandson were born in the same hospital as me. Great photo. The polarizer works well, great colour and detail. Well composed and thanks for sharing.

Very fine blue sky and blue water! Excellent reflections in the water and an attractive composition. Has the name to do with "overcoat"?

Been buried i loads of work
It's a spring image... but it looks so freezing cold, might be the deep deep blue and the crisp naple yellow grass.
ha en skön dag.

Lovely blue color indeed and a very calm and quiet environment. I like the great reflection on the surface of the water and the perspective created.

Interesting winter colour palette!
Hopefully spring will come soon and add some greenery to the scenery...
However the blue sky is awesome, and it reflects even in deeper blue from the calm water with help from the polarizer!

nice little series, you are lucky to live close to this area and what a lovely place to be born...
I enjoy very much all this blue, so refreshening and crisp, so full of that light we need. Soon the vegetation will grow...The water is more deep blue than the sky...that looks really good.
Have you also done the same without the polarizer ? just to see the difference ? (trying to sound technical):-).
