I took this picture nearly a week ago. This happened to be the last day of relatively warm and pleasant weather. The next day we had a temperature below zero and some snow.
This is at the place I took this picture around the end of February last year. I called that picture “The Last Day Of Winter”. People were still sitting on the ice, trying to catch some fish. It started to feel like spring was in the air. However, I was mistaken, winter was long and spring was very late last year and people could fish from the ice many more days.
This is at the Lundby Harbour, a more or less abandoned part of the Gothenburg Harbour.

Hello dear Gunnar,
Very nice autumnal scenery perfect captured. Good pov and layout.
The soft light on the boat from right side, creates nice effect and reflections.
TFS and best regards

Hello Gunnar - Attractive light brings life to the small wooden boat, I do like the way the varnished hull shines with a soft warmth. Simple and effective. Warm regards Rosemary

Une belle photo automnale avec une lumière qui met en valeur ce paysage tranquille.
Amitiés et bonne journée.

Snyggt, det ser mysigt ut, nästan sommarlikt med båten vid bryggan. Jag visste inte att Lundbyhamnen bjöd på sådana vyer.

Detta är ett utmärkt foto av den ensamma båten i hamnen. Jag gillar sättet som du har placerat bilden som visar piren with de gröna och gula linorna på polerna. Bakgrunden är också intressant med de bruna gräs och de kala träden.

a spectacular photo of this place with attractive composition, the colours and lights are beautiful,

En mycket snygg bild av den fina gamla träbåten och bryggan vars vita stolpar speglar sig vackert i vattnet. Miljön på land döljs tämligen effektivt av en ridå av träd. Både den annorlunda vinkeln och det annorlunda vädret ger den här bilden en helt annan atmosför än den som länken visar.

semplicemente bella, di eccellente qualità.
Sono molto affascinanti quei piccoli riflessi sull'acqua, grazie anche alla bella luce che batte sulla barca.

Hi Gunnar,you show me the same thing that happen in my country too in this very strange and warm winter,in effect it seems to be still in autumn,only the colorful leaves are gone,but the rest is truly the same.A top class pic with the usual perfect details and colors.Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Peace and quiet, pleasant place.
Nice frame and composition.
Excellent light and colors.
Photo has climate.
Have a nice afternoon
Royaldevon (38522) 2014-01-21 6:19
The day looks very benign.
The sun is shining, whilst the boat and the b/g trees are picking up the warmth in their colours.
I like how you have used the end of the jetty to act as a guide towards the focal boat. It also adds extra details with the mooring ropes shimmering in the water.
My warm regards,
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2014-01-21 7:30
what a view. Like the calmness of this place. Enjoyed composition with that boat with a lonely feeling. Great use of soft light. Excellent work done. Tfs.
annjackman (21895) 2014-01-21 10:06
The light has picked out the lovely colours of the wooden boat and the reeds in the BG. I also enjoy the reflections in the FG. A quiet atmosphere despite the buildings behind the trees. Good to see the yellow and green ropes, and the blue tarpaulin on the boat.
Kind Regards, Ann
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-01-21 10:24
well spotted boat and perfect timing to take photo of it. The light could not have been better. The colors thanks to it are warmer and much more attractive. Superb quality in terms of sharpness and contrast.
Thanks for sharing
Romano46 (18472) 2014-01-21 11:09
composizione e ripresa sempre curata per un bel soggetto.
Ottimi sia il contrasto che la nitidezza.
Una cattura caratterizzata anche da una luce particolarmente brillante.
Ciao e buona serata
Graal (102752) 2014-01-21 12:24
pleasant peaceful image here. I like the light, colors and reflections. Also good contrast and sharpness. Well done photo.
Have a nice evening.
ourania (45088) 2014-01-21 13:00
a lovely composition, simple, solid and elegant. The boat has a fine perspective and is well placed in the frame. It relates to the other elements effectively and is an irresistible point of interest and reference. The light is lovely and has a peculiar intensity. I love the playful reflections and the colours. The cold tones have a sense of warmth and the warm tones are a little dark and subdued, a marvelous combination. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,
photoray (13981) 2014-01-21 18:37
Interesting Gothenburg scene for the classical wood boat with small mast, and the autumn trees background.
serp2000 (44077) 2014-01-22 8:05
It looks like a sad view, I think the autumn is equal of the old age... So I don't like this season, but the composition is very nice, perfect quality, nice vivid colors. TFS!
boa (7375) 2014-01-22 11:14
jag trodde att vi skulle komma lindrigt undan den här vintern tills det smällde till med kyla och snö för en dryg vecka sen! Även om det är fint med snö så blir ju livet väldigt mycket enklare om det ser ut som på din fina bild här. Verkligen en behagligt lugn stämning i bilden. Ljuset och färgerna bidrar mycket men även den ensamma vackra träbåten ger ett rogivande intryck, snyggt!
mcmtanyel (22216) 2014-01-22 11:28
This is a beautiful little boat. I don't know why Americans don't appreciate boats like this, all the boats I see around here are huge fiberglass speed boats. A lovely photo highlighting the traditional leisure boat.
papagolf21 (101040) 2014-01-22 11:34
Bonsoir, cher Gunnar,
J'aime la lumière latérale qui vient caresser joliment cette embarcation.
Un cadrage fort bien pensé valorise l'ensemble de la composition.
emka (96603) 2014-01-22 12:20
Hi Gunnar, Funny title, the last day of autumn in the middle of January. But the same was in warsaw, we had quite warm weather as for winter and I missed the snow. Now finally we have frosty days, almost minus ten. Beautiful birch trees. it seems as the boat is awaiting someone to go with it. Very pleasant light in this lovely composition.

kato (11630) 2014-01-22 18:09
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the calm bay, a lonely boat anchoring to the small pier and winter grove in back. It's also effective for green/yellow ropes and the reflection projected to the water by the winter light. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and tasteful color combination.
Apurba20 (984) 2014-01-23 2:23
A melancholic title. And a beautiful picture. The sunlit grass is a bonus.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-01-23 7:15
Simple but effective composition and to mark the end of another season. I like the lighting and it has good details. Well done, tfs.
adramad (45386) 2014-01-23 7:26
A lovely image that conveys a sense of calm and tranquility, beautiful autumn colors on the trees from the shore, the boat is a lovely touch to the composition.
Nice color, in these natural tones.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I Like
Enjoy a nice day.
Kielia (24077) 2014-01-23 8:10
well, this was autumn, and now you are enjoying winter as well, aren’t you?
You are showing us what already was known by the landscape artists: the beauty of the low light that is illuminating this charming boat so wonderfully. A very well composed and balanced impression. My compliments!

In Belgium get we everyday bad weather but no winter, no frost no snow, the first blackbird have already a nest.
A wonderful composition and excellent captured.
The boat is the real eye catcher on these picture.
Lovely presentation, with fantastic colours.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
mkamionka (36258) 2014-01-24 9:02
very autumnal mood indeed thanks to the lovely warm light and typical autumnal colors with naked trees. The boat is a very strong point of the composition.
Very well seen and captured,
Have a great weekend,
abmdsudi (53703) 2014-01-24 20:44
Autumn can be very warm and inspiring, an ideal time of day to photo shoot as shown of this wonderfully illuminated image. Beautiful light & colour, bet the boat owner would love this shot for his advertising literature! Nice capture and tfs.
Buin (42466) 2014-01-25 2:25
You captured here a beautiful winterly atmosphere - even without any snow. What a contrast to last winter! The photo transmits something like lethargy but this bright sunlight shows that better times will come. Though it was taken in the city it emanates a wonderful calm ...
Herzliche Grüße an euch beide aus dem nasskalten und grauen Siegen! - seit vielen Wochen nun schon ...
Didi (60588) 2014-01-25 11:03
Very good point of view on the boat
Very nice lights ambiance and good sharp composition
Gigidusud (20825) 2014-01-27 5:43
Beautiful composition with nice autumn colors and splendid light. I like the peaceful atmosphere and the reflections on the water. Well done!
Cricri (118917) 2014-01-29 10:52
Belle lumière douce de l'automne qui réchauffe les couleurs sur tout l'ensemble de la composition, belle réalisation
jemaflor (96849) 2014-01-30 13:01
Well taken, good composition well balanced, light is interesting with a warm tone on the boat, good focal point.
danos (97529) 2014-02-01 8:29
nice the snapshot with the yellow painted boat to be anchored near the jetty as floodlight with the warm light of the Autumn afternoon.I like the created reflections as the calmness and the beauty of the place.
claudeD (38436) 2014-02-02 4:26
Very fine. Picture you are sharing with us here. Excellent composition and very fine sharpness and clarity. I like the view very much.TFS.

hello Gunnar, you were lucky on the weather and to be able to shoot this marvelous peaceful scenery...I'm sure that now this is all snowed out...
best regards and thank you for visiting me!!
jacquest (18927) 2014-02-11 15:04
I like the warm colors in this image and the quietness of the moment. The attractive boat is well placed in the image and the white reflections on the water add to the composition.
pierrefonds (65904) 2014-02-12 17:39
The distance between the boat and the opposite shore is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the boat. The light is giving nice tints to the colours. Have a nice day.
jmdias (64026) 2014-07-01 17:57
I liked the golden and yellow hues of the boat and some other elements in the landscape and the contrast with the blue rest of the compo. beautiful light and excellent framing catching each element in a nice way., TFS.
