boatshed against a blue summer sky with some beautiful clouds
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on July 12th, 2007. Click image for larger view.

I really liked the clouds on the blue sky today. It’s the way I remember the summer days in northern Norway from when I was a kid. Thankfully some things never change!

Our family own the boatshed and it have been a good helper protecting our boat from winter storms. I love the look of the stone roof.

This is the first photo on this site with my new wide angle lens Olympus ZUIKO DIGITAL 11-22mm F2.8-3.5 so look forward to more wide angle shots 🙂

    You can almost smell the vegetation and hear the ocean and the birds.

    I just got a new Canon A540 mainly because of the option for a wide angle converter. I’ve missed wide angle since I last used 35mm. Nice picture, looking forward to more! I love the clouds!

    i really like this photo. the contrast of the boatshed against the sky and the grass is wonderful and the clouds seem to radiate from the roof.
