Afternoon at Engøy, part of Stavanger, and one of several islands just 5 minutes by car over a big bridge and through a tunnel to the city centre. To me it looks like an idyllic place to live.

It's a magical photo with the wonderful reflections on the water! I regret that we didn't get to Stavanger this summer!

Idyllic is right! Love the buildings and the water is like glass which makes for fantastic reflections. You composed this very well. It's a wonderful photograph!

This is a lovely scene! I love the reflections and the boats... just everything!

Nathalie said...

Oh yes I agree! Lots of people in Sydney have that sort of ideal commuting (or what appears to be so) and waterside lifestyle. VERY APPEALING!

What a beautiful composition! The place looks lovely and the cloud reflections are also beautiful.

As to the strike it went well, very peacefully. Of course it always cause problems on people, such as cancelled flights (around 550) and so on, but that's just the way things are...
