Picture of winter birch trees and evening sky on Nesodden, Norway

Picture of winter birch trees and evening sky on Nesodden, Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera January 26th 2009. Click image for larger view.
We have had a lot of gray weather lately so there hasn’t been many photo opportunities, but the other day there was some colored clouds in the sky in the evening. I had to take out the camera and photograph these birch trees with the clouds as background. Also notice the cold mist behind the winter trees.
I recommend that you click on the picture to view it large to get a better perspective of the wide angle (11mm).

    I love the color of the sky in that one. Snow is expected here in New York Tuesday. More gray sky.

    This capture has a great wow factor. The clouds seem to frame the trees. Just Beautiful

    What a beautiful photo! I saw from your tag that you’re using an Olympus camera. I am planning to buy this e-520 later. Does Olympus cameras have nice quality?
