This is by the sea in the southern part of Gothenburg, at place called "Näset" (the Isthmus), mory specicly at "Smithska Udden" (Smith´s Peninsula).
The place is named after Gustaf Smith who bought a summer house here in 1917. The villa was later bought by the city of Gothenburg, but was destroyed by fire in 1991.
The picture was taken around noon, at the end of November.

Le regard suit naturellement les douces courbes du rivage dans l'image, ce qui donne beaucoup de profondeur ā la composition. Le temps gris donne une touche un brin tristounette ā l'ensemble.

I like this type of panorama views at these nice place.
The rocks and the green mosses care for a lovely picture.

You're capturing well this landscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the peninsula where complicated rocks became intricate and the heavily silent sea. It seems that there is a feature in the rocks in Scandinavia in respect of an unreserved huge rock and that the plant with a vitality has sprung up.

Det är inte ofta man ser Smithska Udden så här folktom, inte ens en spinnfiskare.
photoray (10107) 2014-04-02 7:11
The November overcast sky helps to subdue the noon time sun light permitting visual detail of the Smithska Udden. Fine view of the ancient sloping rocks touching the water.
Thanks for sharing,

this is a very serene composition with perfect control of the exposure. I loved the subdued colours of the photo with the moody sky and its beautiful reflection in the water along with the fine textural details of the rocks on the shore. Great atmosphere.
Thanks for sharing and have a great new day.

Good evening Gunnar,
Fine view up and along the low-rocks seashore line, rough terrain for a shore with no sand.
Water marks in different colors on the wateredge is a beautiful element for this image. Yet, DOF and clarity, with the grey clouds aloft, provided a special ambiance through the photo.

Det kan ju tyckas lite dystert att det ser ut så här mitt på dagen (tur att det är bättre nu), men färgerna har ändå blivit ganska fantastiska i denna mycket måleriska bild. Mycket fina grå-grön-bruna toner på klipporna, som dessutom är väldigt vackert formade, och fina orangea inslag på himlen. Det ser nästan ut som solnedgång, men det vore väl ändå att ta i, trots sent november.

Splendid composition with this wonderful POV, showing us very well these rocky isthmus, that go deep into the sea and show us some nice colors in the rock and very good textures.
A beautiful sky with clouds, but with a more luminous horizon line.
Well done. I like.
All the best.
PaulVDV (20385) 2014-04-02 11:23
The typical smooth sanded rocks but this time under a different light.
There is already a certain coldness on the picture but probably a good time to have the entire coastline for yourself.
Excellent clarity and sharpness.
Best regards, Paul

En mycket fin höstbild. Det känns verkligen som Sverige. Jag gillar stämningen och enkelheten. Du har verkligen fångat ljuset väl en decemberdag när det nästan inte är ljust någon gång om det är minsta molnigt. Det som gör bilden särskilt bra är att färgerna ser väldigt naturliga ut. Ha en bra kväll!
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-04-02 12:10
pretty coastline and the colors of the rocks have been beautifully captured. Very simple but effective composition with perfect sharpness and well chosen POV.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your evening

Curious view, nice place.
Good frame and colors.
Lichen on the rock are impressive.
Romano46 (16578) 2014-04-02 12:31
credo che questa foto l'abbia scattata in un posto non molto distante dalla precedente ed eppure č notevole la differenza tra i colori dell'estate, chiari e brillanti, e quelli dell'autunno che sembrano giā preannunciare l'arrivo della stagione fredda.
Questa foto appare piena di romanticismo non solo per il soggetto ma anche per le belle sfumature di luce e di colore che appaiono piacevoli e rilassanti.
Complimenti sia per il soggetto che per le modalitā della ripresa.
Ciao e buona notte
jurek1951 (40949) 2014-04-02 12:48
a spectacular photo of this place with attractive composition, the colours and lights are beautiful,

hi gunnar, why photo of autumn and not spring? nice boulders it woulb be fun to walk on them.
warm regards from armenia
Royaldevon (26449) 2014-04-02 14:23
A fine shot, where the repeating projections of land act like guides into the b/g. The textural details of the rocky surfaces are very well captured, whilst their colour changes suggest seaweed adhering to the lower parts.
The moody sky is a real bonus.
It is the brooding sort of sky that is prevalent in winter.
My warm regards,
A lovely shot and not a hint of red!

Belle et intéressante photo de cette côte rocheuse. Un douce lumičre donnant d'agréables couleurs ā l'ensemble.

Interesting graphical effect of the rocks smoothed by the sea. I like this image, well taken.
dip (23520) 2014-04-03 0:42
the colors and formations of the rocks create a beautiful and interesting contrast with the sea,
a beautiful and well composed shot!
tyro (18564) 2014-04-03 3:31
As interesting note and a delightful photograph which owes it beauty so much to the glorious light and wonderfully subtle colours which you have captured so very well.
A very simple yet striking composition taken in that strange and mysterious light which we so often see in late November, even at midday, but the colours in the sky above the horizon "lift" the image perfectly and the warmth of those colours contrasts nicely with the lovely streaks of browns and green we see in the foreground where the sea has played upon the smooth granite forms.
Lovely soft light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness best seen, of course, in the full size version.
subhendu_bagchi (25243) 2014-04-03 3:53
a peacefull place, full with calmness and natural beauty. You composed this view nicely with great depth and sharpness. Excellent shot. Tfs.

Ciao Gunnar, fascinating landscape, relaxing armosphere, great clarity, splendid light and wonderful pastel colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
jcpix (11416) 2014-04-03 15:58
You've gone from Summer to Autumn, would it be safe to assume we'll be seeing a Winters scene next? :) The diffused light has aided in the balanced exposure, which has been controlled quite nicely to bring out the rich variations of color in the rock. This compressed composition has also created a nice layered effect and a good sense of distance, where we can see a hint of sunshine above the horizon. Sharp focus and strong detail from front to back. A relatively minimal scene, but there's no loss of beauty and calm. Enjoy the new day. All the best.
abmdsudi (39482) 2014-04-03 20:02
You have made the best of the available elements in low light almost diffuse condition with that bit of warm band on the horizon. The rock bright colours attracts the eyes as strong focus too and contrast to whole shot, lovely land and seascape with good layering. A well composed and exposed shot under the difficult circumstances. Well done, TFS

Une trčs belle photo, les couleurs sont trčs agréables.
Ce paysage est superbe.

very fine picture from Sweden whch I like really very much. Amazing atmosphere and excellent light managment.Very well done.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
ourania (26280) 2014-04-04 15:05
this picture taken at the noon of a very dark November day is so moody and captivating. I like very much the strong lines of the composition and the way you ensured depth and balance. The textures are fascinating and you captured two rich colour palettes, one all over the coast and the other in the sea and the sky. In spite of the quiet and calmness, the atmosphere feels dramatic. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
Buin (42260) 2014-04-05 5:06
The zigzag of the coastline here is fascinating and makes this photo a real eye-catcher. In addition this landscape - obviously a remnant of the Ice Age - is most beautiful and extraordinary and as I can see there are a lot of wonderful places for sunbathing and swimming. Great!
In your photo I like the a bit orange sky above horizon as an additional attraction. All really emanates "autumn" here. I like this one very much.
Greetings to you both - and have a nice weekend!
papagolf21 (83214) 2014-04-05 9:49
Bonsoir, cher Gunnar,
Je suis toujours sous le charme en découvrant ces prises de vue.
L'on retrouve ce genre de roche en Bretagne.
Le ciel, l'eau, les rochers forment un tout d'une beauté étonnante.
eldancer1 (25105) 2014-04-05 14:58
The weather maybe gloomy but the scene is beautiful! Good pov and you were able to get good details of those rocks. Well done, tfs.
boa (5618) 2014-04-06 11:09
en fin och fridfull bild, nästan lite dyster när man har din föregående badbild i åtanke. Det man slås av är renheten och tystnaden som den här bilden ger uttryck för. Verkligen en härlig plats för promenader och tänkande. Bra fångat ljus och fina färger!
elenimavrandoni (14231) 2014-04-06 12:55
Gunnar, beautiful light and great horizon!! it is cold still but the seascape is beautiful anyway with the cloudy sky and the dark shades!!
rychem (19395) 2014-04-06 22:23
Excellent photo of a beautiful coast line, amazing atmosphere , beautiful composition and mysterious lightlregards
Subhogen (4065) 2014-04-07 11:37
Beautiful view of the calm sea from the rocky shores. I like the excellent detailing on the texture of the rocks. The rocks form a nice line of division contrasting well with the grey sky and the grey sea. Well taken a nice photo, thanks for sharing.
lousat (72181) 2014-04-08 6:20
Hi Gunnar,there is a special and magic light into this pic,perfect to warm up the colors of the rocks and to contrast in the best way the blue of the nordic sea,very nice view and impressive quality as usual.Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano
jemaflor (80616) 2014-04-08 22:54

ChrisJ (94770) 2014-04-13 10:24
I like the zig zag pattern of the shoreline at right. Superb shadow detail and muted colours and diffused light. Adds mood. Good framing and composition and the sunset forms a splendid backdrop. Have a nice week!
pierrefonds (54890) 2014-04-14 12:31
The distance between the two shores is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the small cliffs. The cloudy sky is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.
mcmtanyel (10407) 2014-04-23 20:53
Very smooth rocks going into the sea. For some reason it is terrifying - I can imagine myself slipping and ending up in the cold waters. The colors are exquisite to portray the mood.
Waylim (25032) 2014-04-24 16:05
I really like the square format from you lately. It doesn't always work with all composition, but you have chosen well to make it this kind composiiton. This is a good shot, the cloudy sky adds to the mood of the atmophere. Beautiful color and good details throughout.
