Winter solstice, good news in my ears:)The northern hemisphere has its longest night and shortest day around the moment of winter solstice. Luckily this winter has been quite mild compared to the previous winters in Sweden!
This lamppost is captured on Södermalm, the area in Stockholm were I grew up. Once known as a slum working class district is today a popular district with rising house prices.
Merry Christmas! (or like we say in Sweden: God Jul)

simple but effective with the stretched shadow 3 times bigger than the lamp post.

This is an elegant photo. It's nice to play with shadows, and these street lights always make beautiful ones. We know it's winter from the bits of snow and ice on the light. Wishing you God Jul!! :-)

Man kan onekligen föreställa sig att det är mer vinterstämning i den här bilden än i min senaste. Fast det är nog mest en fråga om fantasi :-). Men vad gör väl det, när det är en snygg bild med väldigt elegant skugga.
God jul och gott nytt år.

This has an artistic simplicity with the lamp throwing a shadow against the wall. I love the snow left on the lamp. very well balanced composition and nice muted colours.
Kind Regards for Christmas,

Hej Boa :)
this is a very artistic shot! I like very much the unusual shape of the shadow... these two are like things from two different worlds combined in one scene :)
excellent composition, in my opinion!
Wish you and your family all the very best and good luck!
PS. at last... I celebrate Xmas with my friends in Stockholm! it feels so good.
I only wish it were a White Xmas this time... to shoot more interesting photos this winter :)

Well framed! I like the lamp on the right, the shadow on the wall and the ice covering the lamp. A very nice shot!
Have a great New Year!
rbassin (14435) 2013-12-30 7:41
une très belle idée de photo, bien réalisée.
L'ombre du lampadaire est intéressante et se découpe avec précision sur le mur.
Bonne année 2014 et encore beaucoup d'idée comme celle-ci

Et utrolig flott minimalistisk bilde. Det sies at å fotografere er å male med lys - det gjør du til fulle her. Fantastisk flott spill med lys og skygger som skaper en fin dynamikk og et levende, velkomponert bilde.
Et Godt Nytt År ønskes deg og dine!

Very nice artisanal captureof this old fashioned Street lamp with it's shadow on the Wall.
Great effect.Interesting notes.
TFS and best regards
Royaldevon (23402) 2014-01-15 14:13
The subject is simple but with a fine composition and sharp exposure, you have created a very pleasing, artistic photograph.
There is a sense of movement across the frame as the sharp lamp becomes stretched by its shadow and its textures change profoundly on the wall.
My warm regards,

Nice play of shadows with the light. A simple view but very efficient.
