Hello János, I enjoyed the competition title. Many thanks for your appreciation here :))

Good evening Alfred, many thanks for your lovely compliment :))

Hello Jan, I'm pleased that you liked this one. It is a bit 'noisy' because of the high ISO required to achieve the photo :)

Thank you B-A Albrektsen, I love the coast of Rogaland, it is so full of variety. On this day, the sand was frozen and very slippery, but the waves were wonderful :))

Warm wishes to you all from Norway, Amelia

Maybe it is one of your's ?

Amelia Royan on November 5, 2010

Thank you Margit. It is rather a grainy photo I'm afraid, the ISO was rather high because of the very dull weather conditions :))

Well this wave is permanently here dear Nick, but it's not the permanent wave ;))

The picture is great! Photographed exactly the right moment.

Amelia Royan on February 21, 2011

Many thanks Dan-Fan. Unfortunately the light wasn't too good, and the photo is grainy in the enlargement :)

A royal wave in passing dearest LGM and a YSL with oak leaves and bar :))) xxx

Many thanks Michael. This is what I call a lazy wave, moving in slow motion. It was very cold, and nearer the beach the sea had frozen.

Cheers, Amelia

Wow dear Nick - an Yves Saint Laurent award! I could ask for nothing better, apart from a few oak leaves and nice G&T in the bar :)))

Amelia, thank you very much for sharing with us so many wonderful pictures from UK and Southern Norway. This one from Feistein (perfect timing) bring my memories back from 1968 when I spent some months in the Tananger area. My very best wishes, Paul.

Amelia Royan on February 27, 2012

Good morning Paul, many thanks for your visit and comment. Of course this area is timeless, but Tananger is another matter. We have lived here for only 4 years, and the changes that I have seen in that short time are incredible. I doubt you would recognise the place after 40 years away.

Warm greetings from Tananger, Amelia
