Thank you, Walter - It's really just an obsession I have to follow. I don't feel the cold when I'm shooting. Not until I pack up my tripod to go home...
Thank's again!

I like them both Walter. It's always difficult to describe (show) how cold it really is when the frost smoke hits you at -10C.

I think that #1 is the one that does this the best, and is my favorite. On this picture my fingers start hurting in remembrance. But then I look at the sun and feel the warmth come fighting back. In this picture I feel that you give a good impression of the cold “unwelcome” winter with the frosty and snowy grass at the front, and the lovely life giving sun at the back.

Picture #2 is a postcard! Thankfully the sun is shining behind them shadowing the real appearance of the factories, which leaves us with the impression of beauty.

Great shots again, Walter - both are really beautiful! #2 is my favourite, the composition is perfect for me, with the old docks (?) and birds in the foreground, the sun and the industrial buildings in the back... nice!

Those are beautiful. I really like in #2 how the sun is coming up and reflecting off of the water.

Thanks for the great photos!

Thank you, shoturtle.

Agreed - Norway is an eldorado for photographers. Unfortunately, I live in the more 'boring' parts of the country - not where the dramatic Fjords and mountains are - so I have to find other beautiful small spots. Not that an industrial site is beautiful, ever!

Tell me about it! I had another two hours in the cold today - but then, we do it for fame and prize-money, don't we....!



...Thank you for your comments, Al!

Thank you, maggo!
Yes, you were right, these were the old docks for different boating-appliences. Now they have gone and rot away. In the old times, befor they build a bridge across this river, in1955, there was an old ferry terminal close by where workers had to be shipped across to the factories, every day.
