Bush and Bathing-jetty in Black-and-white

March 21, 2013








Only a few days until Easter.

And we have still plenty of winter weather in Denmark.

A bush in my garden – and a bathing-jetty at Ballehage  south of Århus.

Strong winds and snowfall most of the time  today (and the snow “falls” horizontally – as seen in photo no. 5……..)

A very cold day.

This is my contribution to Scott Thomas‘ latest assignment Black & White Photography.

    Lovely photos even if you are in the cold. Spring started for the US, but the northern hemisphere is still cold.

      Hi Martina. You aere lucky thar spring has come around you. But at least we have clear and sunny frost weather these days here: Nice for a long walk with camera!

    You have a very nice collection of black and white photos. Makes me cold just to look at them. I take it you went swimming? My favourite is the frozen bench on the bathing-jetty. Brrrr.

      Ha, I have several friends taking a swim here – all the year! In fact, it was one of these brave friends, who sent me some photos from her (almost) daily swim at Ballehage, that made me decide to go there – with lots of clothes and my camera !!! But you Norwegians – you are Vikings, aren’t you?!

    I feel your winter won’t leave pain, but despite that, I have to say the ice on the jetty, pier, bench is magnificent.

    Some great B&W images here!

    Gosh – the freezing temperatures really come across here! I love the sidewards-facing icicles. I’ve never seen anything quite like that before!

      Hi – and thanks for your nice comments. Have a look at Birgit’s photo from there in the comment above (hope it can be viewed) 😉

    DET så kaldt ut – og jeg som er vandt med Sommer-Danmark!
    Ikke snø her, men blå himmel og kaldt – og fryktelig tørt..

      Vejret har ikke ændret sig meget her, nu er det dog tø om dagen for det meste, så noget af sneen er smeltet. Men koldt, klart og tørt er her også…

    Fabulous black-and-white images, Truels. The beach photo is extraordinary, it’s almost glaringly bright! I like the effect. And I also really like the one underneath the pier with the icicles hanging down.

      My friend Birgit is swimming here from the jetty – all the year around! And she showed me her photo (see above) from there – and inspired me to go there. I do not know, if she was wearing clothes or not shooting her surfer! 😉

    Tøft! Flotte bilder og perfekt valg å bruke B&W her!

    What a great choice of pictures in B/W, Truels ! The icicles are certainly spectacular and perfect for this challenge. I do enjoy the first picture though, of a more wintery type, very similar to my landscape a few days ago.

      Thanks for your nice comments, Isa! Has spring arrived down in Switzerland?!

    Det ser så fedt ud med strandbilleder i sort/hvid. Udtrykket er noget helt andet end når det er i farver.
    Men det er nu skønt med solskinsvejr igen 🙂

      Ja, jeg var ved vestkysten ved påsken, det var koldt men flot og klart vejr! Og himlen var blå 😉
