Christmas Winter Sundown

Jeg arbeider fortsatt med min mulige exit i nær fremtid, men har som dere vet ikke full oversikt over situasjonen. Så kom denne solnedgangen – nesten som en ‘Julehilsen’ fra ‘Mor Natur’, men også da en mulighet til å sende dere alle en Julehilsen anno 2021!
Igjen fotograferer jeg mot himmelen i Øst til tross for at solen som kjent går ned i Vest.
Bildene er til dels tatt i siste fase av solnedgangen og er en utnyttelse av solens siste stråler.  Da kan det gå litt fort mot slutten og med til dels dramatiske effekter.
Håper der liker dette?  Og så får vi håpe at WP kanskje ligger litt bak i sine planer?
I am still working on my possible exit in the near future, but as you know I do not have a full overview of the situation. Then came this sunset – almost like a ‘Christmas greeting’ from ‘Mother Nature’, but also an opportunity to send you all a Christmas greeting in 2021! Again, I photograph against the sky in the East, despite the fact that the sun, as is well known, sets in the West. The photos were partly taken in the last phase of the sunset and are an utilization of the sun’s last rays. Then it can go a little fast towards the end and with some dramatic effects. Hope there like this? And then we can hope that WP may be a little behind in their plans?

Det første bildet virket noe nølende? Omtrent som at farger ikke burde vises på en Øst-himmel, men – ett sted mått jeg jo begynne? Allerede på det neste bildet blir det litt mer fart i sakene!
The first picture seemed somewhat hesitant? It’s almost as if colors should not appear in an Eastern sky, but – somewhere did I have to start? Already in the next picture, there is a little more motion as in this case!
Og plutselig ble fargene ganske massive. Solen vil snart forsvinne under horisonten der ute i Vest. Ja, det kan allerede ha skjedd?

And sudenly the colors became rather massive! The sun is about to fall underneath the horizon out there in the Western sky, or – it may already have happened?
Jeg synes kanskje dette bildet gir en passende bakgrunn for årets siste Julehilsen?

I think perhaps this particulat photo gives a good background for mye Christmas Greetings for this year?
Dette begynner å minne om et Rembrandt-maleri og viser at naturen ovetreffer det meste

om man er tålmodig og befinner seg på riktig sted til riktig tid?

This is stating to look a bit like a painting from Rembrandt og show us that nature is surpassing anything else provided one has the patience to wait for the right moment
and being in the right place?
Som jeg sa: ‘Dramatisk’!

Like I just said: ‘Dramatic’!

      Hi Shandrach,
      Welcome to my blog! You will find that my blog entails nearly 8 500 pictures (at the time), all in
      so called ‘full screen’ (which means that they may be clicked (once or twice) into larger copies!
      The largest pictures will require the use of scroll-bars to see it all) Please enjoy!

    Nydelige bilder. Naturen er (som alltid) den største kunstneren. God nytt år, måtte det bringe oss vakre bilder og glede.

    • Seenorway says:

      Welcome to my blog! In total you may find approximatetly 8.500 pictures on this blog of mine. All from Norway, and all in ‘full screen’ (if you care to click on any picture of you choice)
      Mostly Norway, Norwegian nature but with a few experiments, macro shots a.s.o. (Even digital art 🙂 ) Please enjoy!
      I have never heard of the country you named in your ‘About’. but have concluded it must be a part of some other country that I do have heard about? 🙂

      • AKwafrigeria says:

        Wow thanks, I love the Scandinavia countries, I’ll enjoy viewing your pictures

        Ibibio is a tribe in southern Nigeria, the state is Akwa ibom, the most peaceful place in the country, I love identifying with my tribe than the country ☺️

        • Seenorway says:

          My feeling was right then! 🙂
          Nigeria is one country that I have not ever visited, but I have been to approximately 70-75 others! Come to think of it: I have never been to any country in West Africa at all!
          In East Africa, however, I have visited Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia, Djibouti,
          Kenya and Tanzania but – that is so looong ago that you were not even born! 🙂

  4. Fantastic! It must be non easy to catch such moments

    Incredible skies, Svein. 🎶🎄🎶

    • Seenorway says:

      Thank you, Christine! Christmas behind us – I hope you are doing all right?
      We have got the usual cold weather over here. This morning 14 C below zero! Fortunately not too much of the white stuff, at least not here where I live!
      But kind of chilly – yes! 🙂

  6. Eugi says:

    Stunning and dramatic photos, Svein. Such glorious and vibrant colors. I am reproducing this post, English only, on my blog in case it may be one of your last. I saved the photos to my hard drive so they will not disappear in case you close down your blog. Cheers and Happy Holidays to you and yours.

      Hi, Eugie –
      It will be interesting to se how many new followers from the US that will register the next 2-3 days, but – as you know – I have been working blogs over the last 15 years . . .
      Bloggers of today unfortunately have no time for links! Now – I’m not planning to terminate my blog, and if it one day should disappear, it will be none of my doing!
      Why should I invest 15 years of my life in blogging, only to take it all down?
      So – if it is up to me, it will remaiin open to you all as long as WP will allow it!
      I will even keep on posting new pictures, but only as long as my premium is valid (2023)
      and only as long as I have access to my ‘Old Classic Editor’!
      OLd Classic Editor gone, and I’m gone! Just like that!

      • Eugi says:

        Another one of my blogger friends and I were discussing followers and determined that we would rather have a few quality followers than many followers that aren’t sincere. I had a few email followers that I didn’t know even existed and their links weren’t even live. So I deleted them and I’m in the process of checking on more of my followers. I usually check them frequently anyway and if there has been nothing posted in over 15 days, I delete them. I make exceptions for my regular followers.

        With that said, I wanted to post your photos on my blog just in case you or the WP peeps decide to close down your blog. Now, those photos will always be available for others and me to enjoy. Plus, I will always properly reference your work to you.

        Thus far, I am pleased with my decision to go to a self-hosted blog. I have more control over what I can do with it.


        • Seenorway says:

          Happy to hear that you have reached the same conclusion as I once did! I went from 3500 ‘followers’ to only 150 and today it is even less than that. Blogging is ‘communication’! Blogger that never ever leaves a response, thus not giving their contact address might be more interested in marketing themselves through your community grid!
          Those are not the kind you need! I have many years ago taken down my grid all together, and will in the long run only be keeping those that connect with me in some way!
          Yes, I noticed the you give me solid credit for my work, For this I thank you, Eugie, and –
          this is the way it ought to be! I don’t know the timetable of WP, but my premium is validated up to November 2023! However, if they take away OCE I won’t be able to
          proceed and – that they do know!
          I don’t know how my blog stands out compared to other existing ones, but I do believe
          close to 8 500 images carry som weight? I have not come across any other with such a volume, but that does not mean they cannot be found. There must be somebody like
          me out there somewhere? 🙂
          I voiced some doubt as to the number of new bloggers that would visit my blog aftere having seen my pictures with you. So far – one only! 🙂 But I don’t mind! I will hang in there as long as I have the access to OCE!

    Kjære Svein.
    God jul og godt nyttår ❤
    Klem fra Annie.

    • Seenorway says:

      Takk, det samme, Annie!
      Må vet jeg dessverre ikke hvor bra denne Julen blir, men det er jo lov å håpe at virus så vel som ‘verdens bråkebøtter’ holder fred (sånn noenlunde), men jeg ser mange fler usikkerhetsmomenter enn før – dessverre! Og det er jo lov å håpe? Hils til Stein og vær forsiktige! Klem!

    Definitely dramatic! Wishing you a merry Christmas and all the best and health for the new year!

  9. Spectacular dramatic skies dear Svein.. Have a beautiful Christmas with your family my friend.. Enjoy…. ❤
