Playing with the sun at Oslo Opera

I’ve posted several photos of the Oslo Opera House earlier, but none of them in sunlight like these.  Went down to the Opera house in Oslo last night to take some photos, all of these are shot between 20:00 – 21:00 in the evening.

Some rays of sun breaks through the clouds.

Sun, city & sea reflections.

  1. The reflections are simply poetic. The second photo is particularly stunning because it takes a moment to see why the city is in reflection. Bravo.

  2. The first one has a gentle play of light while the dramatic abstraction of light and reflection in the later shots play with our sense of orientation. Beautiful shots Cardinal!

    • Thank you very much Patti. It had been a cloudy and rainy day, but it started to clear up during the afternoon, so I went out with the camera to try to capture some of the gentle lighting. My plan was to capture the sunset, but the sun sets very late these days and I had to go to work the next morning, so I had to return home before sunset…

    • Thanks thepetalpusher.
      I just realized now that my description on the first photo is actually not accurate.
      I wrote: “Some rays of sun breaks through the clouds and illuminates this building vis-a-vis Oslo Opera”, but the correct description would be:

      “Some rays of sun breaks through the clouds, reflects in the huge glass windows of the Opera House and illuminates this building across the bay vis-a-vis Oslo Opera”

  4. second one is brilliant!! the flare you’ve let in the shot adds a dreamy effect to the glass-and-steel scene 🙂 the difference in color of the “real” vs “reflected” adds great duality to the shot… love it!!
