Photo – Nature – Everyday Life

Forest glow

Last Sunday My husband and I was out walking with some friends in the forest. I had my camera over my shoulder as usual. Taking photos and spend time with friends normally isn’t a very good idea, I spend much more time talking to my companions than watching my surroundings for items to “shoot”. But at one point I found a beam of light from the sun finding its way between the tree logs and hit a yellow leaf lying in the grass like a glowing jewel.

Wow, how I love to find such treasures.

In my neighbourhood

Todays photos are from a short photo-walk in the little forest just outside my house a few days ago.

Have a lovely week!

Mushrooms

The last few weeks I have been busy preparing for my youngest daughters confirmation day (church event followed by a family party). So my mind has been occupied with a lot of other stuff than photography. Well, now the party is over and I am almost back on track. I still find it difficult to be inspired to use my camera when I am out walking in the woods, as this summer was so warm and dry that the flowers, plants and trees has been quite dry. Brown leaves and fading flowers is not very inspiring. Now autumn is here and there has been some rain lately, so there are some mushrooms to be found. Not any edible ones, but they can be a target for my macro lens. So here are a couple of mushrooms, enjoy!

They are kind of pretty in their own way, don’t you think?

Summer in Stockholm

Todays post is some photos from a little trip to Stockholm  my friend, Jorunn, and I did a couple of weeks ago. The sun was shining and we really got that summer  feeling.

Yellow waterlily

I love waterlilies, they are so beautiful and mysterious  as they grow in very deep water and can have stems up to two meters long. I have posted white waterlilies in earlier posts so today I give you a kind of an abstract photo of a yellow waterlily. The shot is from Lillomarka in Oslo.

Have a lovely week!

A trip to Lofoten islands – Heningsvær

Henningsvær is a little fishing village about half an hours car drive from Svolvær. A lot of tourists visit this little village to watch the typical fishing village architecture.

A trip to Lofoten islands – Svolvær

As a part of our summer holiday we spent a few days in the Lofoten islands. We rented a boat house in Svolvær (Svinøya). Svolvær is a beautiful town situated just below the famous rock formation “Svolværgeita” (the Svolvær goat). Svolvær is a popular place to visit for tourists from all over the world and a lot of them arrive with a Norwegian cruise ship called “Hurtigruta”. “Hurtigruta travels the Norwegian coastline from Bergen and all the way up to Tromsø.

We visited a few more places too, which I will write about in later posts. Meanwhile please enjoy the photos from Svolvær.

By the sea (Stavern, southern Norway)

The last week I spent in Stavern, together with my family. This is a beautiful little town by the Oslofjord. In the summer the little town are packed with tourists, some of them arrives by sailboat from Denmark, Germany and Holland. Mostly the town are packed with Norwegians who has their summer houses in the area.

I decided to try to photograph my surroundings on this trip. I also decided I should try some long exposure shots.

I hope you enjoy my experiments.

In to the woods

This summer is a rather special one in Norway since we have had sunshine for almost two months now. We haven’t had any rain for these two months either. So walking in the forest is not as fun as i used to be, there are almost no flowers and the creeks are all dried out. So macro shoots of flowers can hardly be done this summer.

The forest is still kind of beautiful and the spruce is green all year.

Into the woods

Have a nice week!
