This photo was taken around noon at winter solstice.
Today sunrise was at 8:36, 18 minutes earlier than on this particular day.
Sunset will be at 16:10, 44 minutes later than at winter solstice.
This photo was taken at Fredsbron (Peace Bridge) looking towards the Gothenburg Law Court (Rådhuset) and, behind, the German Church, also known as Christine Church. The park to the left is Brunnsparken (Fountain Park) and the canal below is the narrower part of Stora Hamnkanalen (Big Harbour Canal).
You can see it all on the map view here.

Good morning Gunnar,
I normally do not like wintertime, but on the other hand it's also a good reason for many nice captures. Like this one here for example.
Very good pov first of all and a soft light, which hepls us to see amost every single detail of this nice scenery.
TFS and have a nice day

l'hiver aura frappé un grand coup en décembre et sur toute l'Europe, avec les bons et les mauvais côtés. Les bons, et bien c'est pas exemple ces paysages urbains ou de cmapagnes, gélés, cette glace et cette neige qui emprisonnent et immobilisent pas mal de choses.
Une photo urbaine bien cadrée et nette.

Good morning Gunnar!
Brrr! A truly winterly scnery - but a beautiful one! Your photo has a wonderful depth and one can feel cold. The pastel colours of the sky fit very well to the cold atmosphere of the picture.
Greetings from grey Siegen - with some shy sunrays!

excellent daily life scene, captured in the heart of winter. even in winter, this city is still beautiful!

Cool! Not a lot of snow - but maybe you have had more since then.
Lovely colours and composition. The flying bird is in just the right place. The little fat birds on the canal are very clear and would make a good picture on their own.

çok güzel bir açıdan nefis bir görüntü.soğuk havanın etkisini nefis yansıtmışsınız kadraja elinize sağlık.

Since there is a very good mood in this picture I should not award you any points...
However you will get a smiley for the fine pale light gently painting the clouds and the nice perspective along the canal towards GA Torg.

This is a nice wintry scene with the partially frozen river leading the eye into the scene. The soft lighting helps set the quiet wintry mood. Your composition and POV are very nice here.

Indeed, the day length will here tomorrow be 1 hour 17 minutes longer than at winter solstice. Not bad. ;) The photo is a fine winter cityscape with a fine POV, perspective and composition, perfect control of exposure and beautiful, natural colours. The colour balance is excellent resulting in a snow white, which is indeed white.

très belle photo de ce canal qui traverse cette ville, j'aime bien voir ces oiseaux qui marchent sur la glace

Good evening Gunnar,
I appreciate this refreshing image, it is the least which one can say. A framing calculated as with your practice, and an excellent realization. One looks at the unit and architecture, but in fact the birds attract. Congratulations.
Have a good evening

Ett vackert perspektiv med fin diagonal tvärs över. Och vilka färger se´n!
jafadabret (56501) 2010-01-22 23:49
J'aime cette composition très bien calculée pour donner à ce canal gelé toute l'importance qu'il mérite. La neige adouci le paysage et accompagne la perspective qui aboutit aux belles architectures.
Amical salut !
fanni (14377) 2010-01-23 1:37
his is one of those perspective views which I like so mcuh: they show as much of the place as possible, with so many details; and at the same time convey the mood of the moment and of the place! :) Excellent capture, I shuld say! even with a flying bird and a bit of teh blue sky ;-)
And the water looks SOOO cold!!

A cold winter scene with very nice lighting on the winter solstice. The seagull in the sky is perfectly positioned. Tfs, Marlene

Interesting winter view with this perspective, good depth and well seen through this icy water just a little mirror to branches.
