Photography composition: Fill the frame

This post is inspired by Brenda’s post on the same subject, “composition:fill the frame” and a post suggested by Brenda in her discussion, “fill the frame in your photography composition” by Wayne Turner.

Here are images according to my understanding.

In the beginning I was concentrating on one colour but later I included some background.

 

 

Looking around!

The squirrel on the run in Wordless Wednesday (!) was to express my situation. Though my desk has some unfinished tasks, I was on a 2 days seminar in a place called Solstrand hotel and bad. A 4 star hotel.

I donot want to share the details of seminar and bore you,  instead I am presenting the beauty of this magnificent place for lens-artists-photo-challenge this week. I grouped the photos in 2 broad categories: Surrounding and from inside.

Who wouldn’t enjoy this seat

This place is a hideaway by the fjords, situated directly on the shore of Bjørnefjorden – a mere 30 km from downtown Bergen and the airport.

The swans

Set in sloping 50-hectare gardens on the shores of Fusafjorden, this polished hotel dating from 1896, have fascinated guests from far and near.

How does it look from inside 🙂

Every person in Solstrand was happy for the fantastic weather yesterday.  I am glad I took these photos yesterday. This morning it was a different scenario.

Walking around!

The weather today was fantastic which insisted me take a stroll during lunch time. We clearly see spring signs. Instead of concentrating on distance covered I thoroughly enjoyed my time out in sun.

Tomorrow we shall expect rain, snow and strong winds. No worries!

These are my entries for Jo’s Monday walk.

You cannot touch the same water twice

And I say No two springs are the same.

Spring the season.

For Weekend 74, I am presenting images from earlier springs. This year the wet and cold weather didn’t allow the crouses to fully bloom and so far I haven’t seen a bee. It snowed for last two days and temperature is around zero.  Time to enjoy images from archives 😀

Hope you all are having relaxing weekend.
