Springtime is actually an understatement, today we have had a real summer day here in Gothenburg. The temperature was above 21 degrees C.
This is at Amundön (Amund Island) in the southern part of Gothenburg.

härlig temperatur, hoppas att det fortsätter så resten av året:) Den här vintern har varit minst sagt lindrig.
Personerna på bilderna ser ut att ha hittat en fin plats på klipporna för sin picnic, utsikten kan man ju inte klaga på heller. Blå himmel, hav och sol! Vassen i förgrunden ger ett bra djup i bilden. En fin bild med en stämning som ger hopp för sommaren.
Glad Påsk från Nordsjön/

Hello dear Gunnar,
I like your idea how you have divided your layout in 2 different units, each of them would be an individual compo.
The weeds and rocks in the lower part
The rock and walkers at the upper part
Amazing scenery,to enjoy the day.
TFS and happy Easter

What a lovely summery shot - and from today too! Here in southern Scotland the temperature has been hovering around 15°C but nice and sunny.
Again the smooth granite makes a fine base for your picture and a fine place for these walkers to enjoy the fresh sea air too. And the viewer naturally follows the lead of these two ladies towards the lovely blue sea, the horizon and the distant lighthouse on the left.
Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and composition and exquisite details and sharpness.

Congratulations for the arrival of spring. The granite stretching endlessly along the coast is reminiscent of the granite around the shore of New England. I wonder if the composition is similar, and whether plate tectonics drove these shores apart in the distant past.
Warm regards (pun intended),

Härlig utflyktsplats och vädret har ju vartit sommarlikt idag.
holmertz (36273) 2014-04-20 12:40
Jag har visserligen ingen termometer men enligt nätet var det knappast mycket över 15 i Stockholm, fast det kändes skönt det också. Det blir nog snö igen endera dagen...
Snygg bild, fast naturen har inte tappat vinterdräkten än. Det gula gräset skapar en fin förgrund och får en väldigt svensk framtoning tillsmmans med havet. Personerna är väl placerade och rör sig åt rätt håll.

una foto appena scattata che mi fa pensare che sei un amante di un tale genere di paesaggi.
Apprezzabile il fatto che tu abbia incontrato una bella giornata che ti ha permesso di cogliere al meglio l'incontro di questo incredibile mare con le rocce che si gettano nelle sue acque.
Composizione, nitidezza e contrasto perfetti.
Ciao e buone feste

Hello Gunnar, You have a really nice weather here. What a pleasure to have finally warm and long days! I like these boulder, always imagine how nice to walk there must be.
Have a wonderful day
elenimavrandoni (14127) 2014-04-20 22:43
Gunnar, a very simple and very beautiful spring picture with that Swedish clear blue color of the color and the great contrast of the rocks..
the little sailing boat on the far let and the figures walking are two very nice details to an image that prompts to total freedom!
papagolf21 (82926) 2014-04-20 23:29
Bonjour, cher Gunnar,
Une image trčs appréciée ā travers ce paysage Suédois.
La présence de personnages dynamise la composition.
Trčs bonne journée.
Nicou (114990) 2014-04-21 1:32
quelle belle roche superbe polie et cette couleur toute travaillée par la mer et le temps et ces personnage qui se promčnent superbe.
Bravo et amitiéNciou
macondo (18551) 2014-04-21 1:58
A very pleasing picture, well timed to include the couple looking for a spot to have a picnic. The fine grasses make a great foreground foil to the elephantine rocks. I don't know if you intended it, but the woman's head breaks the horizon line nicely. Your Spring days seem rather more pleasant than our Autumn ones at the moment!
snunney (78561) 2014-04-21 3:02
A most attractive image with a lovely summery atmosphere despite the fact that it is still only spring. The people are nicely placed and I like very much the frame offered by the beautifully lit golden reeds. Superb colour contrasts and excellent sharpness complete a fine presentation. Happy Easter to you.
ourania (25320) 2014-04-21 3:23
more or less the same temperature we're having in Athens today. A simple and very attractive presentation of this natural scenery and the way people are associated to it. I like very much the layout of textures and colours in this well balanced composition. The light is very agreeable and there's such a lovely atmosphere on this calm, sunny day. You used the diagonal very effectively to break the symmetry and point out the character of this coast. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,
kato (11630) 2014-04-21 3:27
You're capturing well this seashore by a good composition and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see blue/calm sea, huge rock and reeds in FG. It draws out well the atmosphere in spring season. It's also tasteful for the blue contrast of sea and sky. And, hikers on rock gives a good impact in this image.
marabu61 (7205) 2014-04-21 4:04
While you can enjoy a great day in Sweden, we over here have got snow for easter, find the fault ....
Superb view over the wide open and so blue sea with just one tiny white sailing boat in sight. The colors of the reeds in the foreground is very attractive and the rock formations gorgeous.
have a great day
Sergiom (53495) 2014-04-21 5:31
Une photo un peu du męme genre que ma présentation d'hier, sauf que la rive est complčtement différente avec des rochers beaucoup plus faciles ā marcher. Un trčs beau moment sous le soleil.
Kielia (22913) 2014-04-21 6:38
this is another fresh approach on the region where you live that is very much appreciated. The perfect place to relax. A very well composed impression of this typical seascape. What I like best is the sailing boat in the distance. My compliments!
SnapRJW (28714) 2014-04-21 7:50
What a superb place to walk Gunnar, especially in weather like you enjoyed that day. I love the open feel of the landscape; the sea stretching to the horizon its blueness meeting the sky and the smooth weathered rocks and dry grasses forming a very attractive contrast in colour and texture.
The two ladies complete a fine shot being well positioned and adding the extra detail in a harmonious and well presented photograph.
I trust you are enjoying the Easter weekend.
abmdsudi (38674) 2014-04-21 23:38
A productive record shot of the day, bright and sunny bring lots of joy reflecting the true spirit of early summer time. A nice exploitation with some bright colors rendering lots of strength as they also give great perspective rendering lots of strength with the stunning contrast to deep blue water and sky. This is lively shot yet so peaceful to be found in simplicity, a shot that perfectly encapsulates the season. Worth mentioning too, the beautiful almost golden reeds in the foreground are the icing on the roll. A pleasure to look and your always flawless lens work, Congrats
Royaldevon (25852) 2014-04-22 1:11
Isn't it lovely to have such beautiful weather! All of a sudden, we forget about the dreariness of winter!
I love the contrasts of the horizontal layers, in colours, textures and in orientation. The figures animate and add strength to the composition, whilst the piece de resistance is the yacht.
Have a great day,
jhm (134322) 2014-04-22 5:17
A beautiful spring picture with that Swedish clear blue color of the color and the great contrast of the rocks
Perspective and depth care for a good picture.
Excellent composition, with a good sharpness and clarity.
Very well done, TFS.

jurek1951 (40949) 2014-04-22 11:00
great atmosphere with beautiful composition, the colours and details are picturesque,
pierrefonds (54492) 2014-04-22 18:00
The presence of the persons is adding life to the scene. The distance between the rocks and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors. of the rocks. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
macjake (51254) 2014-04-24 2:01
thanks for your comments on Vancouver, but trust me, we have our own major problems with the city too.
the worst being the amount of poverty/homelessness due to poor social housing accomodations. While drugs/addiction remain a HUGE ongoing issue in Vancouver.
Nice to hear the summer sun has popped up for you on this day, the sun is evident on the rocks and tall grass. I like the greys/blues, its an attractive combo.
see you around
rychem (18665) 2014-04-24 8:40
These rocks looking like the back of a lying dinosaur are simply fantastic, excellent photo with great composition, the included grasses create a "forest" in the FG

Have a nice day.
danos (82551) 2014-04-24 23:16
Good morning Gunnar,
very nice the Sring mood at Amundön with the two women on the rocks to are so close to the sea.I like the endless view of the sea with the wild grass on the foreground to be a charmy decoration element of the image.Well done.
jemaflor (79784) 2014-04-24 23:47
well composed with these dried grass in the Fg and people walking on the rocks, nice light, tfs.
omid266 (2971) 2014-04-26 21:20
An excellent view of this beautiful Landscape in Amundon, very happy work with kid and his mother , wonderful clarity,
Thanks friend , and Good luck
Buin (42254) 2014-04-27 0:15
Here I like especially the "construction" of the picture. The brownish reed in foreground, the grey rocks, the blue sea, the light blue sky - a wonderful succession of layers.
I hope that the ladies have had some good food in their bags ... ;-) A picnic there in sunshine and at 21°C simply must be great!
Greetings to you both from today rainy Siegen - but we need the rain urgently!
gildasjan (40738) 2014-04-27 2:02
Belle variation de bleu entre ciel et mer avec ici une composition bien habillée par ces deux personnes sur les rochers.
adramad (34809) 2014-05-04 14:58
Wonderful composition with the nice contrast between these dry and golden plants in the foreground, with those smooth rocks that mark the coast, with the bottom of a sea, a blue dream, the two women put a pretty vital touch.
An image to enjoy, with its beautiful colorful, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Happy start to the week.
siolaw (38008) 2014-05-07 4:31
Excellent clarity and sharpness, the texture ofthe dry weeds, rock and sea surface combine well in this scene.
mcmtanyel (9915) 2014-05-08 22:16
This is a very relaxing photo. Wonderful colors and excellent DOF. When will the grass turn green, do you think?
