Torgny, this is quite a series. I love it, as I love all waterfront-scenes, ships and wildlife on the water. It's not the water itself but where the water meets the shore, that I always find very interesting.

You have taken us for a long walk along the river and shown us beautiful scenes, with tons of moods and colors so subtle, its a pleasure to follow you - as we have followed the different shades of lights from the sun, as the day went on, afternoon into late afternoon, into early evening, the sun more and more low on the horizon.

Thank you very much, Torgny - this is the kind of mood-pictures I try to shoot too. You have done well here!

A very nice series through the inlet to Gothenburg and Gothenburg harbor. The lipstick is a landmark that is very domenent and characteristic.

You have really caught a lovely mood in all you pictures and shown us how fast the light changes in the winter.

Walter,

Yes, "where the water meets the shore". Always fascinating. Sensual. The waves and the bay

And if you have the shore included, you provide the viewer with a place to stand, thus eliminating the risk of drowning

The shore invites

Bob,

hercules,

maggo85,


Thank you. I have this idea to take one picture every 5 minutes för an hour, camera on a tripod, to study the changes

Alasdair,

Thank you very much. The "Lipstick" is too dominant, I think, but people have gotten used to it. I hoped that you would like the pictures. I'm happy you did
