Hallo, Amelia I love these scenes minimalist


Amelia Royan on March 19, 2009

Very minimal indeed Wolfgang :)

But I had to post this one, as the coastal waters here are so treacherous and I have never seen them looking so tranquil - not that there is much to see ;-)

Greetings, Amelia

That beacon looks almost as though it is sitting on top of a submarine. You must have had a whale of a time capturing this one. A lovely title too. Good morning Amelia

Adrian and I have looked at this photo in great detail - and yes it does look like a submarine - there is one lost somewhere in this stretch of water Nick, so I need a telephoto lens :)

I did have a whale of a time yesterday. Have a nice day at work - I'm off to yoga now :)

I had at first the imaging of submarine too. There perhaps you can do your yoga excercises in great silence. Greetings, Klaus

Yesterday I would have totally alone in the mist in wonderful silence Klaus. Even the dark waves were only whispering as they broke in the shallows.

We have seen a submarine here once before, a bit further round, and making its way either to Stavanger or a nearby NATO base. It was obviously moving, whereas this one [if it is a submarine] didn't change position for about 3 hours at least.

Greetings, Amelia

simple and perfect...

Amelia, I have another idea why your comments may have disappeared from my bridge photo. I copied as a jpg image the source script for my message you say has a "too long link." I thought that link looked too long to and I found out that I forgot to put the < / a > at the end of my link. This caused the link to end at the < / a > of the "delete comment" link. Take a look at the script HERE. The funny thing is that I was able to write a comment to the bridge photo and it did not delete...at least I can see it. Best regards. -Art

I like lighthouses, so I like your picture. Very nice!

Best regards from Port Moody, B.C. Canada, Gabe

U Beauty. U have done well with this one, Amelia.

The variety of images you are producing, Amelia is very special. Appreciatively,

Hello Gabe, I am so sorry to have missed your comment, please accept my apologies. Sometimes I am between the UK and Norway and miss postings. So I'm so pleased you can actually see this lighthouse in the mist. Around this coastline it is treacherous, therefore these lighthouses do a great job. The old lighthouse at Tungenes is no longer operational, but looks prettier :))

Greetings to BC, Amelia

U-boat Ian ;)))

It does look as if it is perched on a submarine. There is one submeged here in the entrance to Byfjorden, but I don't think this is it. We have seen submarines though in this stretch of water. I really appreciate all your comments dear Ian - even if I miss them at first.

Greetings, Amelia

On good still days this would be a perfect spot for yoga Klaus - once in a blue moon though :))

Greetings, Amelia

Millotaurus, I am so sorry to have missed your comment, I think it may be because I frequently travel between the UK and Norway, and it takes a couple of days before I get into Panoramio again. Thank you for your visit and kind words - I really do appreciate them :)

Greetings, Amelia
