Hello Panny-people!

Nothing spectacular, just a bit of fun, showing some "snaps" I made with my new (2 weeks old...) camera.


A Telephoto-shot (182mm equiv.) across the sound from where I live.



And this is a maximum wide angle-shot (27mm equiv.) from exactly the same spot as the first one, but 1 week later - it snowed a little in the meantime...



Enjoy the - as I am enjoying my -FZ28 (just love it to bits!).

Very nicely done, Walter-

I appears that you and your FZ-28 are getting along nicely.

Thank you both for your kind words!


I know that sunset-pictures are "boring" to some of you more sophisticated viewers and that most ofyoudSLR-owners will not be impressed, but I cannot help but being proud of my new Panasonic DMC FZ28 giving me such details and I just love thatwide-angel view.

Having had to be content with my old Olympus Camedia C-3000 with only 31mm wide angle and 3.2 Mp, for the past 7 years, I find it refreshing to go out and shoot with my new "Panny"!



Enjoy, and have a nice sunday, everyone!

Well you impressed me; very nice photo! Love the foreround of the frozen stones going into the smooth lines of the water.
Looks like I should visit Norway some day; It's probably good trekking over there?

Walter_S,

With this set of photos, you have definitely raise the bar for clarity, sharpness and colour.

You are setting a benchmark for FZ28 user.

I can't wait to see more of your works.

In the night between Sunday 4th and Monday the 5th we had a sudden and fierce cold spell which instantly froze over the sound between the two islands, one of which I live on, here in Norway. Now, this is seawater and there is a rather strong current flowing most of the time, so it was rather surprising to most of us, as the ice usually first comes in February/ March.


Anyway, along comes Monday morning with a beautiful sunshine but its still very cold (-10ÂșC) , and I grab my FZ28 to shoot some ice-pictures. I went to our small-boat harbour to see what happened there during the night. I just played around, finding my way with the new camera - trying to catch the sun as it slowly gathers light and warmthand finally dipped it's rays down into the sound and the small-boat harbour -and I am learning new things about the FZ28, all the time.

Came home with almost 100 exposures on my card - a red nose and a smile on my face! Here are someshots, which are not meant to be photographic masterpieces, just fun-shots the Panasonic-way... :-) (Does it really show that I love that Panny?)


The absence of snow on top of the ice, makes it smooth as a pool-table...



The sun's rays are still on the rocky cliffs above us....




And then, at 09:32 AM the sun raises above the ridge on the other side and the first rays are touching the boats rig. The camera worked perfect in those freezing conditions, even the battery kept it's stamina throughout the session.




Halve an hour later the ice is sparkling in the sun.





And the small boats areenjoying a bit of warmth from the sun. Check that perfect and mirror-like smootness of the surface - something only nature can produce...



Enjoy a small glimps of Norway!
