So I have done this before, at a different place! But I just couldn´t resist this one!
In the WS is another view of this extremely red house.
The water is Mölndalsån (Mill Valley River) and this is at Gårda (or rather on Gårda, as we say in Gothenburg).
This picture was taken day before yesterday and it was a very nice and sunny day.
From the local paper (Göteborgs-Posten) of yesterday I quote different temperatures at 13.00 on Friday, January 8, in major European cities:
So when I took this photo, there was a feeling of springtime in the air!
There is also another view from Multimap here.

Excellent shot, amzing how clear the water should be to create such a "clean" reflection!
5 degrees in Gothenburg vs. 0 in Madrid??? Is the weather going crazy??
Have a nice sunday,

Good morning neighbour! ;-)
An intriguing photo - an eyecatching one!
The effect of the agitated water here truly is stunning and the house really looks very funny. My first smile of today ... ;-)
Have a nice Sunday. By the way! At the time here -16°C. A photo like this wouldn't be possible here ... ;-)) I'll prove this in my next picture.

An original view, certainly as it is so crystal clear that you do not notice immediately it is a refelction. I first thought it was a PS construction. Splendid colours too.

Very artistic picture of so nicely dancing house! The water has made its job distorting the reflection so beautifully, but your contribution was also rather significant, when you drew your attention to such a beauty and captured it so perfectly. Very well done!

great capture, good moment - no obvious waves but funny distortions on the reflection, still very sharp.

The perfect composition presented here and in the Workshop. This "spring" picture. Beautiful reflection. Thank you for your interesting comments. We are now in Moldova -5. Yesterday evening, completely cut off gas from Russia. The house is very cold. We are waiting for when the end of the gas conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
snunney (86264) 2009-01-11 1:29
I like the vibrant red tones and, of course, the distortions, occasioned by the reflection. It's like something you would see in the Hall of Mirrors at the fairground, or after one too many :-)
holmertz (42683) 2009-01-11 1:35
This is certainly the brightest and most catchy picture I've seen so far this morning. This trick works over and over again, if the motif is right. Very well seen.
janneman (2608) 2009-01-11 3:53
This tickles my fantasy!
Wonderful shot Gunnar.
Winter is cold here indeed. So we long for the spring too!!
Have a nice day.

Wonderfull ! Good that you've done it again and shared with us !
Perfect idea, perfectly realised.
Great graphical effect with nice warm colors.

wow - cool! (though, as a linguist, I don't really like this word) :) Wonderful - in every respect!
"There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.
And they all lived together in a little crooked house"
Have a great time at +8C :)
emka (81636) 2009-01-11 9:07
Hi Gunnar, Splendid shot. At first I thought it is such a funny house. Like Guinger and Fred in Prag. Fantastic red colour. Interesting upside-down shot. In reflected windows farther reflections..
TopGeo (38204) 2009-01-11 12:19
Hi Gunnar!I saw that you are in a good place and are a interesting region very good the presentation a work that has model idea and a lot of well other elements Good the link and WS
Monziii (109) 2009-01-11 13:41
That's one red house! The reflection is simply perfect, great shot!
Ha en bra dag/Mona
clio (27961) 2009-01-11 14:32
In the red house, maybe we drink some red wine and maybe sometimes we drink it too much then we can see extraordinary things!
Fantastic! I like very much this photo!
parbo (11092) 2009-01-11 16:20
You may add Paramaribo is + 28° C (82 F) at 21:20 o'clock in the night, due to only tropical summer all year ;)
The reflection is amazingly clear in your perfectly taken photo while the red color of house creating eye catcher contrast in blue. Your photo gives an amazing feeling from its thumbnail that looks like deformed by construction. Excellent clarity and sharpness. Congratulations. Have a nice new week.

Hello Gunnar! Amazing work. Wonderful capture. Very nice light and colours. Good shot. Well done!

excellent seen and composed the reflection!
very beautiful image,
Cricri (108559) 2009-01-12 12:28
Extra la distorsion de la maison en reflets, pas mal du tout de l'avoir retourné, bien cadrer et des couleurs génial, bravo
nirvana73 (0) 2009-01-12 13:29
very nice house and colors
very nice colors and light in diffucult situation
molla (7127) 2009-01-12 14:34
Again I wonder where my critic vent ?
You could call this photo for "sketches from a drunk Architect" it has a peculiar dizziness that tweaks this image in a nice surreal way
skoogmi (39) 2009-01-13 5:49
Mycket fin komposition. Du kan nog utveckla den här stilen ytterligare, den finns ju många vattendrag att fotografera.
mafegan (8624) 2009-01-13 6:54
A great wonky red house. You did well to capture the reflection so well when I see its location beside the river. Quite funny. I can't imagine that I could ever capture such a brilliant reflection in our brown Brisbane River - but we probably got to +30c on that day. Tfs, Marlene
COSTANTINO (57176) 2009-01-13 10:03
Original version,clever idea
a nice photo in red colour very impressive..
This house looks very funny and the reflection
has your stamp,nice work
regards and compliments
jafadabret (56501) 2009-01-13 11:36
Non, tu n'as pas trop bu et nous non plus ! J'aime beaucoup la fantaisie apportée par le reflet redressé de cette superbe maison rouge.
Beau travail !
Atousa (7131) 2009-01-14 7:14
What a lovely reflection!..wonderful colour contrast too ..it is really a happy shot ..dancing red house.. very well seen n captured.. thank you
Best regards, A
Kielia (23847) 2009-01-14 10:24
it was not only this crazy house that made me smile, your title is also very funny! And your photo work is excellent with fantastic contrasts and sharpness. Congratulation! The WS is also appreciated, since the background in reality turns out to be a little bit dull.
Uhu (8481) 2009-01-15 13:11
Ha. St-Petersburg was like + 3 C in that day, I think.
very good photo of a very, very, very Swedish-looking house (reflection of it) (I mean - the color is quite classic)!
Angshu (56180) 2009-01-18 20:03
Fine reflection shot...like the distortion more evident on the right. Colour contrast between the red house & the sky is very attractive. I was surprised to see the temperatures in your note...Gothenburg is warmer than Paris, Berlin & other Southern cities!
PatyP (240) 2009-02-05 1:09
I like the reflection of the red house in the water. The tonality of the colors here in this photo is greta, the prespective is great. Congratulations.
anesugur (18789) 2009-02-08 13:17
Very good idea and wonderful capture.
Best regards. Uğur
Glint (6171) 2009-02-09 13:08
this is so much fun. Is it a house for a drunken family or for a wibbley wobbley one? I like the colours of rusty red and blue. There is such clarity in the reflection. Good work.
ThierryA (6686) 2009-02-20 5:37
Nice picture of this mysterious house... I like the colors and the good idea you have here... Good job!
Have a good day,
brevbrev14 (140) 2009-03-23 14:34
Hi Gunnar, very very good this game of reflection
i like a lot the result
really a crazy house
well composed too
qpochet (1412) 2009-04-23 11:15
Very beautiful reflection here, the mirror effect is perfect. Very vivid colours as well ans nice distorsion of the lines. I was in Brussels at that time, no spring feeling at all for me ;)
westcoastgirl1 (666) 2009-11-25 22:20
This image is so clear at first I was wondering why it was distorted. I didn't realize it was a reflection shot. This is the best reflection shot I have seen on TE! Creative and a one of a kind.
