Flowers

Winter is still on, so I have to have a winter break on my page. I bring you flowers!

Snowy sunday – again

The snow keeps falling and falling, I wonder will it ever stop? How long will it be before I can take macro-shots of flowers again? I am patiently waiting for spring to arrive, though I must admit it is a bit early for spring in February. But soon it will be March and March gives hope 🙂

I bring you a little flower from last summer, the arctic starflower.

Black and white

Winter is still going strong and it is snowing almost every day now. The whole world outside is just black and white. Will it ever be spring?

Sunny afternoon

Finally the sun showed up. I went out in the afternoon before the sun was about to set, to see if I could find some little treasures in the forest. The sun showed me a little diamond as I passed by a little bush. And as I love cones from the alder tree I had to take some photo´s when I found a little branch with alder cones in the snow.

Hopefully there will be more sunny days in February.

Goodbye January

Today is the last day of January and I have already started waiting for spring to arrive. Outside it is snowing heavily and there are no signs for spring what so ever….The whole world is monochrome grayish…oh I long for something green…..

Decay

On one of my walks by the sea there is a little red cabin. It is not any architectural treasure, it has been standing there for some years and nobody has cared for it in any way. But decay can sometimes be beautiful and the shades of red in the painted layers makes a beautiful pattern together with the little window on the right.

Droplets

Being an amateur photographer I take a lot of photos which has no quality what so ever, so sometimes it is necessary to tidy up in the Lightroom archive. There is no need to save photographs which cannot be used for anything and raw files do take a lot of storage. Going thorough all these photos (well I just finished march 2017) I did find some photos that actually was quite OK. Todays theme are droplets, seems to be a favorite of mine together with mushrooms and leaves.

Droplet on moss (winter 2017), can you see the apartment building inside the droplet?

Droplet on leaf (early spring 2017).

For 2018 I probably should try not to photograph so many droplets….or…. We´ll see 😉

Have a lovely week!

Juniper and pine

During winter spruce, juniper and pine are still green and can be nice targets for some macro photography.

Frosty pine needle

The photos are from two different days this January. Juniper with droplet are from new years day, a rather warm winters day were the snow was about to melt. The frosty pine needle was captured this week were the temperature was about -3 Celsius and the sun was rising.

Color hunting

Winter in Norway can be somewhat colorless because the days are quite short (the sun is up just a few hours) and the weather can be quite grey. The snow are covering up potential targets for a macro photographer. But sometimes if you take your time to observe your surroundings you can find something unexpected.
